OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite

OnePlus is gearing up to launch a new mid-range handset – the OnePlus Nord CE 2. The Nord CE 2 will make its debut on 17th February in the Indian market. However, there is one more Nord series handset that has been in news in the past couple of weeks. The upcoming Nord CE 2 Lite was leaked on the web quite recently. Now, in a new leak, tipster Yogesh Brar has revealed that the Nord CE 2 Lite will offer a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

OnePlus has offered optical in-display fingerprint scanners on all Nord series handsets to date in the country so far. However, the brand has some smartphones such as Nord N200, N100, and N10 5G with the side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Yogesh further reveals that the Nord CE 2 Lite will feature a 3.5mm audio jack but it won’t be OnePlus’ signature alert slider. This should come as a surprise to anyone considering the OnePlus Nord CE also doesn’t have an alert slider.

OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite Specifications and Features

The Nord CE 2 Lite was leaked earlier this month by OnLeaks. As per him, the handset will feature a 6.59-inch Full HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. As of now, it’s not clear if the device will offer an AMOLED display or an LCD display. However, since the brand is said to go in favor of a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, there are good chances that we see an LED display on the Nord CE 2 Lite.

The upcoming Nord CE 2 Lite will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor and an Adreno 619 GPU. The handset is said to offer a  triple-rear camera setup including a 64MP OmniVision primary sensor. Accompanying it might be a 2MP macro sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies and video calls, the handset might offer a 16MP Sony IMX471 sensor.

The Nord CE 2 Lite will come equipped with a 5000 mAh battery and 33W fast charging support. It will offer a Type-C charging port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. As stated above, the handset will not offer an alert slider. It is said to boot Android 11 based OxygenOS 11.
