OnePlus is planning to reveal a brand-new budget smartphone called the Nord CE 5G this week. TechRadar has a render of the gadget straight from OnePlus itself, showing that, well, it looks quite a lot like the initial OnePlus Nord.
The CE 5G, nevertheless, will be a little cut back in regards to specifications. OnePlus’ product head Oliver Zhang tells TechRadar that CE stands for “Core Edition” and describes a design philosophy where the business had a goal of “distilling the item down to the most crucial things.”
“You see mid-range phones on the market with extremely exaggerated specs,” Zhang says. “We actively prevented some of those functions and kept the important things we felt would truly make a difference to the everyday mobile phone experience, like quick charging (Warp Charge 30T Plus), a 90Hz AMOLED screen, or 5G.”
OnePlus itself has actually been guilty of these “exaggerated specs” in the past– the initial Nord, for instance, had a “quad-camera” setup that included a 2-megapixel macro electronic camera and depth sensor of dubious energy. The Nord CE 5G, on the other hand, makes do with three video cameras on the back. That camera proposal, along with the CE 5G’s processor and cost, will be essential to the item’s appeal.
Evleaks has published numerous leaked images and a video of the Nord CE 5G, revealing some more features like a 64-megapixel primary electronic camera, 7.9 mm thickness, and– unlike the original Nord– a headphone jack.
The full reveal is happening tomorrow, June 10th, at 10PM ET. The Nord CE 5G is being targeted at the Indian and european markets, according to TechRadar.
