- The OnePlus Nord 2 could be a much pricier prospect than its predecessor in India.
- The phone is rumored to launch at Rs 31,999 — Rs 7,000 more than the original Nord’s list price.
- OnePlus will unveil the phone in the region on July 22.
According to a new leak, the forthcoming OnePlus Nord 2 could be considerably more expensive than its predecessor in India.
Info obtained by 91Mobiles suggests the Nord 2 will start at Rs 31,999 (~$429). This model will reportedly pack 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. If you want 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, you’ll have to fork out Rs 34,999 (~$469).
This would make the OnePlus Nord 2 the most expensive model in the Nord line by some margin. It’s a noticeable price bump over the original Nord, too, which landed for Rs 24,999 (~$335) last year. As a further comparison, the OnePlus 9R launched in India for Rs 39,999 (~$536).
While users might not be too thrilled by that increase, OnePlus could chalk it down to specs and feature improvements. Rumors suggest an upgraded 50MP sensor will headline a triple rear camera. OnePlus also confirmed the phone will use the high-end MediaTek Dimensity 1200 — a fair upgrade over the Snapdragon 765G. However, the phone seemingly won’t see core design changes. The Nord 2’s 90Hz 6.44-inch OLED panel doesn’t differ much from the Nord’s display on paper. Battery life may only benefit from a slim 385mAh increase.
91Mobiles also shed light on the expected colorways, but don’t hold your breath for any fancy hues. Grey Sierra and Blue Haze will reportedly be among the offerings. A special leather Green Woods edition may also be offered, but this could come with a further price bump.
Thankfully, we don’t have to wait too long to confirm the Nord 2’s price, specs, or colorways. The phone will debut on July 22 in Europe and India.
