OnePlus Nord 2: What we know so far
- The name. It is likely to be called the OnePlus Nord 2
- Release likely in the second quarter of 2021
- Likely to be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC
You heard that right. If we are to believe the good folks at Android Central, chances are high that OnePlus – for the first time on a mid-range handset – will opt for a MediaTek chipset with the OnePlus Nord 2. The processor of choice for the OnePlus Nord 2 as per the report is the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 about which we had talked not too long ago.
This a fairly new SoC that was only announced in January 2021. Built using the 6nm process, the Dimensity 1200 clocks at up to 3GHz, comes with the Mali-G77 GPU, and supports Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6 wireless standards in addition to offering dual-5G support.
If this switch to MediaTek actually takes place, it would be a great achievement for MediaTek, but of course we don’t want to forget that this is just a rumor for now, which is currently not confirmed by MediaTek or OnePlus.
OnePlus Nord 2 launch date?
Apart from these tidbits, honestly, there is very little info about a possible launch date. That being said, chances are high the OnePlus Nord 2 could see officialdom by July 2021 – exactly one year since its launch of its predecessor in July 2020.
