The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G specifications have appeared online, courtesy of OnLeaks in association with Smartprix. It will feature a 6.59-inch Full HD display with a high refresh rate. The rumored display size is bigger than the 6.43-inch screen found on the original Nord CE 5G. It is likely to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G SoC, paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM, and 128GB/256GB storage.

The upcoming budget smartphone will get a triple rear camera setup. It will be led by a 64-megapixel primary lens along with two 2MP lenses, so it’s basically a single workable camera with two 2MP lenses. On the front could lie a 16MP selfie shooter. It will pack a 5,000mAh battery with support for 33-watt fast charging support.

The smartphone is expected to launch soon.

As for the cameras, it could swap a 2MP camera for an 8MP lens, with the other two being 64MP and 2MP shooters. The front camera is likely to remain the same as the Lite version.

The OnePlus Nord CE 2is rumored to be launched on February 11, 2022. The company could also launch the Nord 2T in April, perhaps after an announcement during Mobile World Congress.

OnePlus 12R Genshin Impact Edition in hand.

OnePlus is still quite new to me, as I was a lifelong iPhone user until I joined Digital Trends. However, OnePlus has a pretty solid reputation in the mobile world, and now I can see why, as the OnePlus 12 is one of my favorite smartphones that I’ve used so far this year.

But the OnePlus 12 isn’t the only phone that OnePlus launched in 2024. There is also the more affordable value option, the OnePlus 12R, which even comes in a cool Genshin Impact Edition.

OnePlus surprises us with dazzling Android tablet and smartwatch
A press image of the OnePlus Watch 2 Nordic Blue edition.

OnePlus has launched a new Android tablet and a desirable special edition of the OnePlus Watch 2, both in beautiful color schemes that make us want them both right now. Unfortunately, that won't be easy if you live in the U.S.. The company has announced the OnePlus Pad Go tablet and OnePlus Watch 2 Nordic Blue edition smartwatch at an event in Helsinki, Finland, and both are currently only destined for a European release.

If you recognize the OnePlus Pad Go's name , it’s because the tablet was released in India last year, and it comes in the same stunning Twin Mint color scheme, which is as trendy as it gets. Although the company hasn't been forthcoming with all the details about the tablet, the specifications are unlikely to have changed from the model released in India. It has an 11.3-inch screen with a 2.4K (that’s 2408 x 1720 pixels) resolution, which it claims is currently the highest available on an Android tablet, and a 90Hz refresh rate.

Don’t mistake this for indifference, though. I’ve been itching to use it for more than just those early few days, but due to various reasons, it hasn’t been possible until now. Was it worth the wait?
Why did it have to wait?
