The OnePlus Nord 2 may be approaching its first birthday, but we’re still months away from the inevitable North 3 launch. To tie up customers, OnePlus is working on an upgraded Nord 2T model which has now been fully leaked.
Check out the design of the OnePlus Nord 2T
To confirm the CAD-based renders that came out a month ago, an AliExpress offer with a lot official looking renders of the OnePlus Nord 2T reveals a rather interesting design that centers around a much larger camera bump on the back. That camera module houses two large black circles. Sitting in the top one is believed to be Sony’s IMX766 sensor – that’s the same main camera seen on the fantastic OnePlus Nord 2, so the Nord 2T should have a pretty capable camera.
In the lower circle are two extra sensors. Details on this are scarce, but this new leak points to an 8 megapixel ultra-wide angle lens and a 2 megapixel monochrome sensor. The latter is cool if you like black and white photography. It can even help capture extra detail for color photos. But let’s face it, OnePlus only records it so that the phone can be branded as a triple camera device.
As for the rest of the Nord 2Ts outside, that remains unchanged. Whether you think that’s a good thing or not is another matter. But to refresh your memory, the original Nord 2 had a nice 6.4-inch 90Hz Fluid AMOLED display.
The OnePlus Nord 2T may cost $399
What about the inside of the OnePlus Nord 2T? I hear you ask. Well, today’s leak specifically mentions a 4,500 mAh battery with incredibly fast 80W fast charging technology — the tagline is “a day of power in 15 minutes.”
In addition, the presence of MediaTek’s Dimensity 1300 chipset is mentioned. The original Nord 2 featured the Dimensity 1200, so this will be a nice upgrade for buyers. In addition, as you would expect, 5G networks are supported by default.
Expect the OnePlus Nord 2T to be announced later this month, possibly as early as May 11. When it is released, the global version could cost $399 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
