The leaked images appear to be genuine renders of the impending OnePlus Nord 2T, providing us with our most definitive look yet at the device’s design.
The Nord 2’s replacement, the Nord 2T, is a mid-range gadget designed for the Indian market. Leaked renders of the smartphone have appeared in the past, but the most recent ones appear to be official marketing renders. The device is anticipated to enter the market in May. Until now, they have been the most reliable indicators of what to look for.
Chinese social media site Weibo (via XDA) initially revealed the images that mostly confirm what earlier renders had predicted. One noteworthy difference between the Nord 2T and its predecessor is the addition of a camera bump. The Nord 2T only has two relatively big openings, as opposed to the Nord 2, which had a third smaller cutout for the camera sensor. On the top, there is a large camera sensor, and on the bottom, two smaller ones.
Additionally, the renderings of the Nord 2T show two different flash modules, one for each cutout. The Nord 2 has a single flash unit at the bottom of the camera hump, whereas the Nord 1 has two.
The overall design appears to be better with just two cutouts for sensors instead of three. Although the camera bulge is substantially larger, the phone’s backside appears sleeker. It is approximately one-third the breadth of the rear of the Nord 2, whereas the Nord 2T’s hump spans roughly half of that width. A symmetrical charm is maintained despite its diminutive stature.
The new model, according to the images, will only be available in gray and green.
Additionally, prior reports indicate that the Nord 2 would be equipped with an eight-core Dimensity 1300 SoC, which would be an improvement over the Nord 2’s Dimensity 1200 SoC.
With a more streamlined camera design, the Nord 2T appears to be a modest upgrade to an already competent midranger.
