The OnePlus Nord CE 5G is expected to officially appear on 10 June. However, with fresh details having recently leaked, we needn't wait that long to jump under the hood and discover what the full specs will be for this upcoming camera phone. 

It seems that the OnePlus Nord CE 5G will be heavily based on the original OnePlus Nord camera phone, but it looks like there have been a few spec downgrades that have likely been made to ensure a lower price.

Rumor website GSMArena reports that (opens in new tab) the OnePlus Nord CE 5G will feature a 6.43" 90Hz AMOLED touchscreen with an in-display fingerprint sensor. It will also feature a Snapdragon 750G chipset and a 4,500 mAh battery that's capable of 30W fast charging to take the handset from 0 to 70% charge in just 30 minutes.

In terms of photographic capabilities, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G will feature a triple camera system including a 64MP main sensor from Omnivision, an 8MP ultra wide camera and 2MP depth camera. Meanwhile, the front-facing camera features a 16MP sensor. While you can see better camera setups on the best iPhone for photography (opens in new tab) or the best Samsung phone (opens in new tab), this shooting array will likely suit most users just fine.

This new leak suggests that there will be two RAM/ storage options. The first will be a 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant and the second will feature 8GM RAM/ 128GB storage. It's worth noting that the storage is only UFS 2.1, which isn't the fastest storage around. 

The OnePlus Nord CE 5G will feature a single down-firing speaker and is expected to run OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11. The frame and back will be made from plastic, which will likely make the handset fairly lightweight. The Nord CE 5G will have a 3.5mm headphone jack and pre-orders will begin in India on 11 June.
