OnePlus is expected to release the low-cost OnePlus Nord SE sometime in March 2021. The smartphone is set to feature a 4,500mAh battery that supports fast charging at 65W. It will likely be released in India first, followed by the EU. A U.S launch seems unlikely.

OnePlus appears to be doubling down on its commitment to release more reasonably-priced smartphones after promising to do so earlier this year. Android Central reports that there is a fourth OnePlus Nord-branded device in the works. Dubbed as the OnePlus Nord SE, it will probably be released in Q1 2021, right around the time the OnePlus 9 makes its debut.

For all intents and purposes, the OnePlus Nord SE is a budget device. However, it offers some exciting upgrade over its predecessor, support for 65W fast charging being one of them. It gets a slightly larger 4,500mAh battery too. Little more is known about the OnePlus Nord SE, other than the fact that it will come with an AMOLED panel. Unlike the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and N10, the OnePlus Nord SE will be sold in India- a critical market that OnePlus has been hyperfocused on for years. It will gradually make its way to the EU, but not the U.S.

As the OnePlus Nord SE's name somewhat suggests, it will likely bear the same ~US$400 price tag as the original. We can also expect to see some upgrades in the cameras and SoC, and it'll be interesting to see what OnePlus has in store for us. The chances of OnePlus reusing the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G on the OnePlus Nord SE seem somewhat low. Perhaps it will run a yet-to-be-announced Qualcomm chip or even MediaTek silicon. After did, OnePlus did mull on befitting the original OnePlus Nord with a MediaTek Dimensity 1000 for a long time before switching to team Qualcomm.
