OnePlus has officially revealed the design of the upcoming Nord 2 which is slated to launch on July 22 in India. The OnePlus Nord 2 is confirmed to feature a triple camera setup on the back and the design looks similar to the OnePlus 9 series as rumoured previously. The OnePlus Nord 2 succeeds the original Nord that launched in 2020 and went on to become a bestselling mid-range phone.
The OnePlus Nord 2 has a vertical camera array on the back that has two large camera sensors followed by a smaller, third sensor accompanied by a flash unit. The Nord 2 will be available in blue colour as the original Nord but it is also rumoured to arrive in black/grey colour. Additionally, two renders of the Nord 2 have been leaked by popular tipster Ishan Agarwal in association with PriceBaba and shows off the phone in two colours: Blue Haze and Gray Sierra.
