The Nord is OnePlus' much-hyped contender in the 2020 upper-mid-range smartphone market. Now, a new report claims that it will get a second generation. It might run on a new Snapdragon 5G processor, have a high-refresh-rate display and run Android 11 out of the box.

OnePlus Nord news and rumors is flying in at present. This series of smartphones has been augmented with the  budget N10 and N100 models. Furthermore, leaks pointing to an upcoming new variant have now been joined with hints of another. This one is not an SE model, but a full-fledged successor to the original flagship allegedly planned to launch in 2021.

It will apparently be called the OnePlus Nord 2, although the code-name denniz has also been mentioned. As the first generation's own nick-name was avicii, to honor the late Swedish DJ, the 2 may have been called after another: Denniz Pop.

This Nord 2 is also now said to have the Snapdragon 775 or 775G as an SoC. It is also projected to have a screen with a high refresh rate: as the Nord has one at 90Hz, it is possible this could step up to 120Hz in its successor. Similarly, the 2 is touted to have a charging speed of at least 30 watts.

This, in OnePlus terms, means Warp Charge 30, although there may just be scope for the 65 version instead in a next-gen premium mid-ranger., Finally, the Nord 2 is (reasonably) predicted to run OxygenOS 11 out of the box.
