Recently, a leaked OnePlus roadmap revealed that the Nord CE 2 Lite will launch sometime this month. The company is yet to announce the launch date or tease the phone’s arrival, but there have been a few leaks to tell us what we can expect from the device. 91mobiles exclusive revealed the camera details as well as early renders of the upcoming Nord phone. Now, an even better Nord CE 2 Lite render has surfaced online, courtesy of tipster Yogesh Brar. The render is in line with our early images. Let’s check out the design.
OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite design
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite looks quite similar to the Realme 9 Pro+ (minus the gradient colour scheme). On the front, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite has a punch-hole cutout on the top-left corner for the selfie camera and a noticeable bezel below the screen. The volume rocker is on the left, while the power button is placed on the right edge.
On the back, the Nord CE 2 Lite has a rectangular module to house two large camera sensors, a smaller lens and an LED flash, much like the Realme 9 Pro+. It appears the OnePlus phone has a polycarbonate build to keep the weight and price on the lower side. The phone can be seen in Grey colour but there should be other options at launch. The upcoming Nord CE 2 Lite should have an in-display fingerprint sensor as well.
