The OnePlus Nord 2 is set to launch on July 22, and some additional information just surfaced, including its price, colors, and specs. The OnePlus Nord 2 will be considerably more expensive than its predecessor, it seems.
Do note that the site shared price tags for India, but it should give us a good idea of what to expect elsewhere. According to the source, both 8GB and 12GB RAM variants will launch. The former will offer 128GB of storage, while the latter will ship with 256GB of storage.
The OnePlus Nord 2 will be more expensive than its predecessor, but it will also be a major upgrade
The 8GB RAM variant of the phone is set to cost INR31,999 ($429), while the 12GB RAM model will set you back INR34,999 ($469). This indicates that it will be more expensive than its predecessor, for around $100 more expensive, actually. The OnePlus Nord’s pricing started at INR24,999 ($335) in India last year.
The OnePlus Nord 2 will launch in three variants. The Gray Sierra and Blue Haze models will combine metal and glass. The Green Woods variant will come with a leather finish on the back.
The source claims that the phone will include a 4,500mAh battery, and support 65W fast wired charging. So, it seems like OnePlus won’t opt for 30W charging after all, but for something much faster. Wireless charging probably won’t be supported.
You can expect to see three cameras on the back of this phone. A 50-megapixel (IMX755 sensor) camera will be backed by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 2-megapixel mono sensor. A 32-megapixel camera will be included on the front.
MediaTek’s most powerful SoC will be included, along with a 90Hz display
The phone will be fueled by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, MediaTek’s most powerful chip. A 6.43-inch fullHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate will also be included, and it will be flat.
So, the OnePlus Nord 2 will be considerably more expensive than its predecessor, but will it be worth it? Well, OnePlus does plan to include quite compelling specs here, as this phone will be a major upgrade from the OnePlus Nord. So, this price bump kind of makes sense.
