OnePlus’ latest flagship budget phone, the Nord 2, is set to be revealed during a live stream today. Here are all the details you need to know about.
The first Nord, unveiled in mid-2020, was an excellent device that offered many of the features we’ve come to expect in the best phones for the most affordable price. It sat comfortably on our list of cheapest phones and it looked like OnePlus was going back to its roots.
The Nord name has now evolved into a brand new addition to OnePlus, with affordable devices filling the range. Recently we also have the OnePlus Nord CE, a slimmed-down version of the original Nord that will sit alongside the Nord 2.
How to stream OnePlus Nord 2 launch
As has been the case with almost all major tech launches over the past 18 months, the Nord 2 will see a grand unveiling. OnePlus is hosting the live stream Today (July 22) at 3:00 PM BST, 7:30 PM IST and 4 PM to unveil Nord 2.
The event is being streamed via YouTube and you will be able to see it here. We will also embed a live link on this page closer in time.
OnePlus hasn’t revealed how long the event will last, although these streamed shows run between 45 minutes and an hour.
What do we expect from the show?
The OnePlus Nord 2 is set to be the star of the show and we already know some details about the phone.
The biggest news is that OnePlus has decided not to use the Qualcomm chip for the phone – which is an integral part of previous OnePlus devices.
Instead, the Nord 2 will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 AI chipset. OnePlus hasn’t revealed much about performance yet, but we do know that it will be a 5G capable chip and have plenty of AI benefits.
