OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G specifications are slowly being revealed officially.

Highlights
  • OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G will come with MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset.
  • The Amazon listing shows off the rear design, which includes triple cameras.
  • The handset is scheduled to launch on February 17th in India.

OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G is confirmed to launch in India on February 17th and will come as an offshoot of the Nord 2 from last year. The company had already mentioned it will come with a 65W fast charging support and that it will go on sale through Amazon. Now, while we wait for the announcement, the Amazon listing is updated to reveal MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset. We also get to see the rear design of the Nord CE 2 5G to show triple camera lenses and an LED flash. As expected, there’s no sight of an alert slider and the phone will be available in Blue colour, but there could be other options at launch.

OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G will come with a traditional design, including a rectangular camera module to house triple sensors and an LED flash. The power button is on the right, while the volume rocker is present on the left. The OnePlus logo is on the back in the middle. The front design is under wraps, for now, but we can expect a punch-hole cutout. The Amazon listing will be updated to show more details leading up to launch on February 17th.

What are OnePlus Nord CE 2 specifications?

OnePlus Nord CE 2 specifications include a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, slim bezels, a punch-hole cutout to house the selfie snapper, and probably even a Corning Gorilla Glass layer for protection.

The phone will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G processor which could be coupled with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB storage options. The handset is expected to run on Android 12 based OxygenOS 12 custom skin out of the box but there are chances it may arrive with Android 11 skin as well.

As for the cameras, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G has triple cameras on the back, with a 64MP primary OmniVision sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro lens. There is a 16MP snapper on the front for selfies and video chats. A 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging support could fuel the phone. Connectivity features include 5G, 4G LTE, dual SIM, microSD card slot, GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C port.
