As mentioned earlier, the trademark filing does not tell us anything about the OnePlus Pad specifications. It does tell us that OnePlus may soon enter a brand new segment in India. The company has been expanding its portfolio lately with the launch of its first fitness tracker and smartwatch earlier this year.

Separately, OnePlus Nord 2 is known to be in the works as a successor to the OnePlus Nord that was launched in July last year. 91mobiles had exclusively revealed the OnePlus Nord 2 specifications and design through high-resolution renders. According to Mukul Sharma, OnePlus Nord 2 is said to launch sometime in the latter part of this month, July 24th to be precise. This, however, the company doesn’t make any last moment changes. This means the OnePlus Nord 2 launch is right around the corner and we should hear more details directly from the company soon.

OnePlus Nord 2 specifications could include a 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a punch-hole cutout to the top-left corner of the screen. It will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC coupled with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. The phone is likely to boot Android 11 OS out of the box with Oxygen OS custom skin on top. OnePlus Nord 2 is said to pack a 4,200mAh battery and may have fast-charging support. Connectivity options will include dual-SIM 5G apart from dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.1, GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C port. The OnePlus Nord 2 will look similar to the OnePlus 9 series. It is said to have triple cameras on the back with a 50MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP depth sensor/macro camera. There will be a 32MP snapper on the front for selfies.
