It seems that rumors about the OnePlus Nord smartphone on the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 platform still remain valid. Recall that initially such a platform was attributed to the upcoming Nord CE 5G model, but it will receive the Snapdragon 750G.
The source reports that the new top-end SoC MediaTek was eventually left for the Nord 2 model, which is just logical, since it will be the real successor to the original Nord.
Such a smartphone will allegedly be presented in July. No pricing, but the original Nord started at $ 400, while the upcoming Nord CE 5G will retail for $ 315. That is, the Nord 2 can be priced at the same $ 400 or so, but, of course, it is not at all necessary.
The source in this case is Mukul Sharma, an insider with a pretty good track record. In particular, he was the first to talk about the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 with a 108 megapixel camera.
