OnePlus Nord 2 will be the name of the successor of the OnePlus Nord, one of the best-selling phones in the premium mid-range segment, according to the latest leak. The OnePlus 9 series could launch in the coming few weeks and the company is teasing an announcement on March 8. The OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9 Lite/OnePlus 9R have been leaked in the past few weeks revealing their key specifications and real-life images. 

According to a report by Android Central that cites “reliable insider sources”, the OnePlus Nord 2 is going to be the name of the successor of the OnePlus Nord. What’s more, the OnePlus Nord 2 will be the first smartphone by the company to be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor which is a 6nm chipset that was launched earlier this year.

We are still months away from the launch of the purported OnePlus Nord 2 and there’s a lot that could potentially change between now and when the phone officially launches. That said, it is an interesting move for OnePlus that, until last year, stuck to Qualcomm’s flagship 8-series processors. Then came the OnePlus Nord, a mid-range phone powered by the Snapdragon 765G which went on to sell like hotcakes, especially in India.

The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor has an integrated 5G modem with an octa-core CPU with a prime Cortex-A78 core clocked at 3.0GHz, three Cortex-A78 performance cores running at 2.6GHz and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. MediaTek claims that the processor is 22% faster and 25% power efficient than previous generation processors. This is supported by Mali-G77 GPU and up to 16GB LPDDR4x memory.

It supports up to a 200MP camera or two cameras of 32MP and 16MP respectively with features like 4K UHD HDR video recording and five-core HDR-ISP. The Dimensity 1200 supports Full HD+ displays at up to 168Hz refresh rate with MediaTek HyperEngine 3.0 gaming features like boosting touch response, better graphics and are power-efficient.

OnePlus Nord 2 could launch in Q2 2021 which is anytime between April and June. The OnePlus Nord was launched in July and there is a high possibility that we may get the Nord 2 around the same time. For now, the company is likely focused on launching the OnePlus 9 series.
