In today’s news summary about OnePlus’ upcoming Nord 2 smartphone, we talk about the software support window (which has been officially confirmed), some leaked camera details, and show you newly released renderings from the front of the phone. So let’s start with the latter.
It is said the North 2 in all its splendor, seen from the front. Like countless leaks and rumors already mentioned, the dual selfie camera has disappeared. The pill-shaped perforator is now making way for a single ‘normal’.
Continuing, the company itself has already confirmed that the Nord 2 is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset with some AI improvements, and that it has a 6.43″ 90 Hz AMOLED touchscreen display. Today, OnePlus also shared its software support plans on Twitter, and the Nord 2 will get two major Android versions and three years of security updates.
Take a deep breath and relax, worried. OnePlus Nord 2 comes pre-installed with OxygenOS 11 backed up by 2 major Android updates and 3 years of security updates.

It’s not quite on par with the numbered flagships, but not as bad as what it offers for Nord N devices. Like its price, the Nord 2 is firmly in the average.
Finally, a new rumor claims that the Nord 2’s main camera sensor will be the same main camera sensor seen on the OnePlus 9 Pro, namely Sony’s IMX766, and not only that, but it will also have OIS. This would be an interesting feat for the mid-range smartphone, and would probably make it quite competitive in its segment when it comes to shooting.
OnePlus Nord 2 5G will feature a triple camera setup.
The main sensor is a Sony IMX766 50MP with OIS.

While this rumor doesn’t share anything about the other two sensors on the back of the phone, past mumbles talked about them as being much less impressive. Basically, you will get an ultra-wide sensor of 8 MP and a decorative sensor of 2 MP.
Apart from all that, the previously leaked specs for the Nord 2 make us expect to see a 32 MP snapper selfie and a 4,500 mAh battery. RAM can be a choice between 8 and 12 GB, while for storage you will probably choose between 128 and 256 GB. Nord 2 will be formalized on July 22.
From a software perspective, expect OxygenOS 11.3 based on Android 11, and it will be the company’s first handset to run a version based on the unified ColorOS-OxygenOS code base.
