If the present leak is to be believed, it will be the first Nord series handset in India to not have an in-display fingerprint reader. Also, this Lite version of the Nord CE 2 will be an "India-first model," meaning it will arrive in India before any other market.

The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite will sport a punch-hole design, slim bezels, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. It will have a triple camera unit on the rear. The handset should bear a 6.59-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and an aspect ratio of 20:9. It will not feature the brand's signature alert slider.

The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite will flaunt a triple rear camera setup, including a 64MP primary sensor, a 2MP depth snapper, and a 2MP macro lens. Up front, it will sport a 16MP selfie shooter.
A Snapdragon 695 chip will power the device
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite will be fueled by an octa-core Snapdragon 695 SoC, paired with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. Under the hood, it would boot Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 and pack a 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast-charging support. For connectivity, the device will offer support for 5G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a Type-C port.
