OnePlus Nord SE could be the next phone in the Nord-lineup, according to the latest report. The Nord SE is slated to be a follow-up to the OnePlus Nord that was launched in July and marked OnePlus’ re-entry into the mid-range smartphone segment. Recently, the company also launched the OnePlus Nord N10 and Nord N100 for the US and the European markets.
According to a report by the Android Central that cites “insider sources”, OnePlus Nord SE is likely the next phone from the company that’s slated to launch sometime in the first quarter of 2021. The report states that while the company has not decided on a launch date, the Nord SE is expected to go official after the OnePlus 9 that could be announced by mid-March 2021.
As per the new information, the OnePlus Nord SE is known by the codename “Ebba” internally and the phone is rumoured to feature the same Warp Charge 65 support that debuted with the OnePlus 8T. The Nord SE is expected to feature a 4,500mAh battery, the same as the Nord but with 65W fast charging support, taking less than 40 minutes to fully charge the phone.
Moreover, the Nord SE is tipped to feature an AMOLED panel and will launch in India and Europe. The report hints that the Nord SE doesn’t seem likely to be released for the US market. Going by the tipped specifications, the OnePlus Nord SE could be a direct successor to the OnePlus Nord but there’s no official word on it just yet.
