OnePlus recently introduced a mid-range smartphone dubbed Nord CE 2 5G in the Indian market. Moreover, the handset made its first sale in the country on February 22. Now, the Chinese consumer electronics giant is gearing up to launch another mid-range smartphone.
Word on the street is that the next OnePlus phone will be a slimmed down version of the new Nord CE 2 5G. However, OnePlus is keeping the exact launch date and other key details about the upcoming phone under wraps. In the meantime, a set of OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite renders have appeared on the internet, revealing its design. These early renders were shared by 91mobiles in conjunction with industry sources. So let’s check out the design renders, specs and other key details of the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite.
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite smartphone will be launched in India and other regions in the coming days. As a reminder, a past leak suggests that the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite could turn out to be a rebranded version of the Realme V25. Regardless of whether this speculation turns out to be true or not, an earlier report suggests that the new Lite model will sit under the Nord CE 2 5G. Now OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite design renders show the rear panel of the handset.

The phone appears to feature a glossy plastic back panel with curved sides. Moreover, the phone has a flat frame, which is probably made of plastic material. Additionally, it houses a rectangular camera island on the back. This camera module appears to house two large cutouts and a small third cutout. In addition, the camera module accommodates an LED flash. The right edge features the fingerprint reader. Similarly, the volume buttons and the SIM tray are available on the left edge.
Additionally, the report suggests that the upcoming Lite version of the Nord CE 2 will have a hybrid SIM tray. In other words, the phone will not have a dedicated micro-SD card slot. At the bottom, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C port. Other than that, the bottom edge provides real estate for the main speaker grille. Unfortunately, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite renders do not show the front panel. However, past leaks suggest the phone will have a punch-hole cutout in the top left corner of the display.
The phone will boot Android 12 operating system with a layer of Oxygen OS 12 on top. Moreover, it will be the first Nord series phone to run the latest Android 12 operating system. Earlier reports suggest that it will sport a 6.58-inch display with Full HD+ resolution. On top of that, the phone will pack a Snapdragon 695 SoC with 5G support. For optics, it would come with a 64 MP main camera and a few 2 MP depth and macro shooters on the back.
On the front, the phone is said to feature a 16MP selfie camera. Additionally, it will draw juice from a 5,000mAh battery supporting 33W fast charging. Finally, the phone is likely to support a 90Hz refresh rate.
