The first quarter of 2022 will see both Samsung and OnePlus releasing their new flagship phones, but the latter will also reportedly announce a new midrange Nord phone called OnePlus Nord 2 CE. And courtesy of the popular Indian tipster Yogesh Brar, we now have a good understanding of what the smartphone will look like.
91mobiles in association with tipster Yogesh Brar has brought the renders of what they claim to be the OnePlus Nord 2 CE. According to the leaked renders, the OnePlus Nord 2 CE will feature a flat display much like its predecessor, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G. The front part of the phone is the same as the Nord CE — we see a familiar punch-hole design, which houses the selfie camera.
On the back of the smartphone, you can see a rectangular camera module, consisting of two large and one regular-sized sensor and an LED flash. It also has the familiar OnePlus logo. On the bottom of the smartphone, you get a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, speaker grille, and a primary microphone. The volume rocker (up and down buttons) is on the left, while the power button can be found on the right.
According to the tipster, the new Nord phone is codenamed OnePlus Ivan and could be a direct successor to the OnePlus Nord CE 5G. In a previous leak, the tipster also shared the specifications of the new Nord phone.
