No need to wait that long, though, for today the upcoming phone’s full spec list has been outed. It looks like the Nord CE (“CE” for “Core Edition”) is based heavily on the original Nord, with a few cuts here and there to presumably give it a lower launch price.
The original Nord
The Nord CE 5G is said to feature a 6.43-inch 90Hz AMOLED touchscreen with an in-display fingerprint sensor, the Snapdragon 750G chipset at the helm, and a 4,500 mAh battery with 30W fast charging (0 to 70% in 30 minutes).
On the rear there’s a triple camera system, with a 64 MP main sensor from Omnivision, an 8 MP ultrawide, and a 2 MP depth sensor. On the front, you get a 16 MP snapper for selfies.
There will be two RAM/storage versions: 6/64GB and 8/128GB, although it’s UFS 2.1 storage, and not anything faster. The device has a single down-firing speaker and is expected to run OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11. It’s entirely plastic-built (both the frame and the back are plastic, but of course the screen is covered with glass).
The Nord CE 5G is already confirmed to sport a 3.5mm headphone jack, and the handset is going to be 7.9mm thick. Pre-orders will start in India on June 11.
