Earlier: Today OnePlus on Amazon.in confirmed that it will launch the OnePlus Nord CE 5G smartphone in India soon. In an interview with the TechRadar, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that the Nord CE 5G will be introduced on June 10 in India and Europe. He also confirmed that OnePlus Nord N200 5G, successor to last year’s Nord N100 will launch exclusively in the US and Canada later.
CE stands for Core Edition which will be a revamped version of the Nord with extra features to create a great everyday phone at an even more affordable price, said the CEO. He added that the flagship features that the new OnePlus Nord phone comes with will deliver that a fast and smooth. The CEO also said that it will be even more accessible product which could be related to the price of the phone, so it could be cheaper than the Nord.
Even though the Stadia Premiere edition promotion confirmed the OnePlus Nord 2 name, the CEO doesn’t confirm if it will launch along with the Nord CE 5G next month. He also didn’t say if the Nord CE will be a direct sequel to last year’s OG Nord, so the Nord 2 could be a separate device.
OnePlus will also launch new OnePlus TV U series on June 10th after the launch of OnePlus TV Y series this week. We can expect teasers for the Nord CE 5G in the coming days before the launch in a couple of weeks.
