The Nord 2 will have a triple-camera setup with the LED flash placed inside the camera module. Like other devices from the brand, the device has the OnePlus logo on the back. At the front, the device has a flat display with a hole-punch cutout on the top-left corner. The USB Type-C port, SIM tray, and speaker grille are at the bottom. It measures 160 x 73.8 x 8.1mm (roughly) and will also feature the company’s signature alert slider.
The device was spotted on the AI benchmark website with a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC. The phone listed on the website had 8GB of RAM as well. It is expected to sport a 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and an optical in-display fingerprint sensor.
If reports are to be believed, the Nord 2 will feature a 50MP Sony IMX766 primary camera, coupled with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and another 2MP sensor. For selfies, it could feature a 32MP shooter inside the punch-hole notch. The phone could also pack a 4,500mAh battery with 30W fast charging support.
