OnePlus ventured into the budget smartphone after many years with the OnePlus Nord in July 2020. Later, the company turned the gear up and launched two more devices under the ‘Nord’ branding in quick succession. By November, reports had already started surfacing about a Nord SE and that it may launch in Q1 or 2021. However, Max Jambor(@MaxJMB) thinks otherwise.
Max, who earlier hinted about a possible Special Edition, is now saying that according to his sources, OnePlus isn’t going forward with the announcement of OnePlus Nord SE. Particularly, he says that the Special Edition that was planned with the original Nord won’t be hitting the stores.
Back in December, a Phone report suggested that OnePlus Nord SE could just be a special Edition of the Original OnePlus Nord designed in partnership with graphic artist Joshua Vides. However, an older report by Android Central said that the Nord ‘SE’ would have internal improvements like 4,500mAh battery, 65W Warp Charging.
Anyway, it makes sense of OnePlus to call off the whole special edition idea considering the Nord successor is already in the works. Speaking of which, OnePlus seems to be developing the device with an internal codename ‘Denniz
And if another Android Central report is anything to go by, OnePlus will finally shift from the Qualcomm paradigm and opt for Taiwanese MediaTek chipsets. It says that the OnePlus Nord 2 will feature MediaTek’s flagship Dimensity 1200 5G chipset
Keeping this aside, there’s also an OnePlus ‘Ebba’ in the works and this is said to be the successor of the OnePlus Nord N10 5G. This device is likely to get a 6.49-inch flat display, triple-cameras, measure 62.9 x 74.7 x 8.4mm with a plastic rear panel.
That being said, let’s just hope OnePlus brings ‘Special Editions’ of succeeding Nord devices in the future.
