The upcoming OnePlus mid-range handset is said to feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that will refresh 90 times a second. We can expect the display panel to come with FHD+ resolution and house an optical in-display fingerprint scanner and a punch-hole notch. The handset might be powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 900 processor. To those unaware, the OnePlus Nord 2 was the company’s first handset with a MediaTek processor. In fact, so far, it is the only OnePlus handset with a MediaTek processor.

The MediaTek processor on the handset will be paired with 6GB to 12GB of RAM as per the report. We can expect to see the Nord 2 CE in 6GB, 8GB, and 12GB memory configurations, similar to the current-gen Nord Core Edition. The report further adds that the device might come equipped with 128GB or 256GB of storage. It is said to boot the company’s proprietary OxygenOS skin with Android 12 as the base.

OnePlus is said to use a 64MP OmniVision sensor on the upcoming Nord handset. It might be accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2MP macro sensor. For the selfies, the device is said to be equipped with a 16MP sensor. The Nord 2 CE might offer a 4,500mAh battery unit with 65W Warp Charge 65 fast-charging. The inclusion of 65W fast charging is a big change considering OnePlus Nord 2 is the only Nord series handset with Warp Charge 65.

The Nord 2 CE will not offer an alert slider similar to the OnePlus Nord CE. It will feature a 3.5mm audio jack and a stereo speaker setup. The frame of the handset is said to be made up of plastic, while the glass back and the screen will have a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass on top.
