OnePlus is planning to declare another new budget smartphone called the Nord CE 5G this week. TechRadar has a render of the device directly from OnePlus itself, showing that, indeed, it looks a considerable amount like the original OnePlus Nord.
The CE 5G, be that as it may, will be a little cut back as terms of specs. OnePlus’ product head Oliver Zhang discloses to TechRadar that CE stands for “Core Edition” and refers to a design philosophy where the organization had an goal of “distilling the product down to the most important things.”
“You see mid-range phones on the market with very exaggerated specifications,” Zhang says. “We actively avoided some of those features and kept the things we felt would really make a difference to the daily smartphone experience, like fast charging (Warp Charge 30T Plus), a 90Hz AMOLED display, or 5G.”
OnePlus itself has been liable of these “exaggerated specifications” before — the original Nord, for instance, had a “quad-camera” setup that included a 2-megapixel macro camera and depth sensor of dubious utility. The Nord CE 5G, then again, manages with three cameras on the back. That camera proposition, just as the CE 5G’s processor and price, will be critical to the product’s appeal.
Evleaks has posted several leaked images and a video of the Nord CE 5G, uncovering some more features like a 64-megapixel main camera, 7.9mm thickness, and — not at all like the original Nord — a headphone jack.
The full uncover is occurring tomorrow, June tenth, at 10PM ET. The Nord CE 5G is being targeted at the European and Indian business sectors, as per TechRadar.
