The OnePlus Nord that launched back in August 2020, marked OnePlus’s entry to the mid-range segment of smartphones. While OnePlus did follow it back with the Nord N10 and Nord 100, these were market-exclusive smartphones that didn’t quite hit the mark that the OG Nord had set. This year OnePlus is launching the OnePlus Nord CE, the CE here stands for Core Edition. While the official launch is scheduled for June 10, the specifications are already disclosed, and given the spec sheet, this might be a budget device. Here’s everything we know about the OnePlus Nord CE 5G.
OnePlus Nord CE 5G Overview:
Display and Build:
The design will resemble the OG OnePlus Nord as the build is based on it. The display here is a 6.43” inch AMOLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate. Given that the CE 5G is aimed to be more “affordable”, there are some cut corners. The quad cameras to the back of the OG OnePlus Nord make a cut and the CE gets a triple camera array. As it is an AMOLED panel, an in-display fingerprint scanner is present. The build is plastic i.e. a plastic frame and a plastic back. The body is going to be 7.9mm thick.
Performance and Memory:
The OnePlus Nord CE 5G is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC, paired with Adreno 619 GPU for graphics. From the information we have in hand, the OnePlus Nord CE will get two different memory configs- 6GB/64GB and 8GB/128GB. The storage used is UFS 2.1 and it is supposed to come with OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11.

The triple camera module at the rear comprises a 64MP primary sensor from Omnivision, paired with an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP depth sensor. To the front, we have a 16MP selfie shooter.
Rest of the Specs:
The rest of the specs include a 3.5mm headphone jack (can’t take that one for granted these days) and a single bottom-firing speaker to handle your audio needs. Backing all of it up is a 4500mAh battery with support for 30Watt fast charging which is rumored to get the OnePlus Nord CE from 0 to 70% in half an hour.
Official Launch and Availability:
The OnePlus Nord CE 5G will is scheduled to go official on the 10th of June for India and pre-orders begin June 11.
