The OnePlus Nord was one of the most notable mobiles in Spain for the upper-middle range, a terminal that represented a “return to the origins of OnePlus.” That return to the origins seemed questionable in certain aspects, but this does not disqualify that the Nord was one of the best mobiles in its category.
Hopefully this mobile has a successor. According to Android Authority, said mobile would be called OnePlus Nord 2 and would stand out mainly for using a MediaTek processor, something that would not be very funny to the most enthusiastic fans of the brand.
The OnePlus Nord 2 would have a MediaTek processor, but we have certain doubts
The OnePlus Nord was one of the mid-high-end phones that we liked the most of 2020, a mobile that had sacrifices compared to the best models, but that were not so dramatic considering that the price was practically half that of its brothers greater.
The road to the Nord was not easy, and we saw all kinds of rumors and leaks about a OnePlus Z or OnePlus Z Lite. During all those months we saw all kinds of images and specifications in which MediaTek seemed to have all the ballots to be the brain of this mobile. In the end it was not like that and we had the Snapdragon 765G processor.
According to Android Authority, the OnePlus Nord 2 would have a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor, a very powerful chip manufactured in a 6-nanometer process. Now, to what extent will it be reality?
At this time we can only speculate, but if we analyze all the rumors, it would not be unreasonable to think that this OnePlus Nord 2 does not end up being a successor to the original Nord, but to the OnePlus Nord N10 5G, a lower category mobile in which the one that would have Make sense to use the best MediaTek chip.
There is a rumor that we would have 3 phones in the OnePlus 9 family, which makes us think that the true successor to the original OnePlus Nord would be among the OnePlus 9. Perhaps not in name, but in product philosophy.
All this information is not sufficiently verified and enters more into the field of speculation. As the launch date approaches, we will surely know more reliable data to have a clearer idea about the strategy that OnePlus will follow in 2021.
