The successor to the OnePlus Nord – or what we now call the OnePlus Nord 2 – is on and according to a report is scheduled to launch in the second quarter of 2021. The new OnePlus Nord phone is rumored to come with the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC. It is not the same as the original OnePlus Nord and all previous OnePlus phones that came with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor. The OnePlus Nord 2, after officially launched, will be the fourth model in the Nord Company series, with the OnePlus Nord and OnePlus Nord N10 5G and the OnePlus Nord N100.
Speaking to people familiar with the development, Android Central announced plans to launch the OnePlus Nord 2. The availability of the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC on the new OnePlus Nord phones is believed to be a major hardware upgrade to the original OnePlus Nord with Qualcomm. Snapdragon 765G.
In January, MediaTek launched the Dimensity 1200 SoC as the new 5G support chipset. It has an ultra-core ARM Cortex-A78 with eight processing cores and a maximum clock speed of 3GHz. The chipset includes nine ARM Mali-G77 MC9 GPU cores and supports a maximum of 16GB LPDTR4X RAM. Additionally, it supports UFS 3.1 storage.
OnePlus Siblings Realme, owned by the same parent company BBK Electronics, was named one of the first smartphone manufacturers to bring a flagship model to the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC. This model is expected to be part of the rumored RealMe X9 series.
However, OnePlus’s move to MediaTek Dimensity 1200 seems interesting, as the company has been using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips in its smartphones since its launch in December 2013.
The original smartphone of OnePlus Nord was launched in July 2020. The model debuted exclusively in India and Europe and competed with the models such as Samsung Galaxy M31s and the Google Pixel 4A.
In October, OnePlus expanded the Nord series with the launch of the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and the OnePlus Nord N100, which made a mark in the US market.
Next to the OnePlus Nord 2, OnePlus is in discussions to work on the OnePlus Nord SE. It can have an AMOLED display and includes 65W fast charging. The OnePlus Nord SE is said to be launched sometime in the first quarter – making some room for the OnePlus Nord 2.
OnePlus didn’t instantly respond to a request for comment on plans around OnePlus Nord 2.
