OnePlus Nord CE2: some rumored specs of the upcoming smartphone are potentially confirmed in new leaks
OnePlus is slated to launch its new flagship smartphone, the 10 Pro, worldwide soon; however, a more mid-range device might come first. It is said to be a direct successor for the Nord CE, a 5G handset with an attractive price.
This "CE2" is said to update its sub-series with the MediaTek Dimensity 900 platform. Now, a new device with the model number "OnePlus IV2201" that has popped up on Geekbench might validate this claim. It has posted just over 700 in single-core scores and 2100 in multi-core terms using the ARM MT6877V/ZA, or 900 processor.
Should this phone truly be the Nord CE2, it might have at least 1 SKU with 8GB of RAM and run Android 11 out of the box. The latter detail might help explain a possibly official poster recently posted by Max Jambor that seems to vaguely hint the phone will launch with OxygenOS 11.2, as opposed to the latest 12 version for its current flagships.
Meanwhile, the CE2 is also slated to have a 4,500mAh battery that charges at 65W. The IV2201 has also appeared on the TÜV safety-certification database with the necessary 10V/6.5A technology. Interestingly, it is rated to charge batteries of 2 sizes in this phone, the capacities of which add up to 4,450mAh.
This, then, might hint at one of OnePlus' parent company's dual-cell solutions, many of which do indeed charge at 65W. Accordingly, the Nord CE2 might start to be marketed as a phone with the Dimensity 900, a battery with a typical capacity of 4,500mAh and Warp Charge 65 - or, just maybe, SuperVOOC 2.0 instead.
