Last week, a new leak suggested that OnePlus might be launching the long-rumored OnePlus Nord 2 smartphone during the last ten days of July – and that seems highly probable since the company has already kicked off it’s marketing campaign on the device.
In the latest teaser released by the company, it reaffirmed one crucial piece of details about the upcoming OnePlus Nord 2 – that is the phone will be powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI chipset.
You are not reading it wrong, the chipset indeed carries the ”AI” branding as this is in fact a custom chip that was developed through a partnership between OnePlus and MediaTek to improve the AI capabilities of the phone in the camera, display, as well as gaming aspects.
With that in mind, the OnePlus Nord 2 is certainly a huge jump from last year’s OnePlus Nord when it comes to smartphone performance. But apart from that, the new OnePlus Nord 2 is also really different from it’s predecessor in terms of design too.
According to the recently leaked renders of the OnePlus Nord 2, the rear camera module of the OnePlus Nord 2 closely resemble what we saw on the OnePlus 9 series smartphone, amidst some rearrangement to it’s camera sensor and flash unit. Unlike the OnePlus Nord, the upcoming Nord 2 will be coming with three cameras instead of four this time round.
These cameras, according to reports, are expected to be a 50 megapixels main camera, 8 megapixels ultra-wide unit, as well as another 2 megapixels sensor which is likely to be used for macro shot or depth sensing.
On the frontside of the phone, it also ditches a dual-cam setup and instead opted for a single 32 megapixels selfie camera that’s housed within a hole-punch cutout on the upper-left corner of the screen.
