OnePlus is planning to launch a new budget smartphone called the Nord CE 5G this week. TechRadar has a render of the device from OnePlus itself, showing that, well, it looks like the original OnePlus Nord.
The Nord CE 5G, will be a little cut back in terms of specs. OnePlus’ product head Oliver Zhang says that CE stands for Core Edition and refers to a design philosophy where the company had a goal of distilling the product down to the most important things.Zhang says that people can see mid-range phones on the market with very exaggerated specifications. They actively avoided some of those features and kept the things we felt would make a difference to the daily smartphone experience, like fast charging Warp Charge 30T Plus, a 90Hz AMOLED display, or 5G.
Evleaks has posted several leaked images and a video of the CE 5G revealing some more features like a 64-megapixel main camera, 7.9mm thickness, and unlike the original Nord a headphone jack. The full reveal is happening tomorrow, June 10th, at 10 PM ET. According to TechRadar, The CE 5G is being targeted at the European and Indian markets. This time, the company will opt for the Taiwanese chip maker, MediaTek. In addition, the phone will have up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
