Yesterday, we saw reports that OnePlus mistakenly mentioned the OnePlus Nord 2 on its official website before removing it later on. It hinted at the imminent launch of the next Nord device, and we expected it to be the Nord 2. However, the company is going to call it the OnePlus Nord CE 5G. This is also in line with Max Jambor’s recent tip on Twitter.
Coming to the specs and features, we do not know much about the upcoming Nord CE 5G as of now. However, as per earlier reports, it will include the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 5G chipset that was announced earlier this year. So, as you can imagine, Nord CE 5G will offer flagship-grade performance at an affordable price in India.
So if you are hyped for the launch of the next-gen OnePlus Nord device in India, you can visit the OnePlus Summer Launch Event microsite on Amazon India and subscribe to get notification alerts.
