OnePlus the popular enthusiast brand, has been under flak in recent months after offering sub-par software support to its devices, which were usually purchased due to great software support. Add to this the decision of OnePlus merging with Oppo, the enthusiast fan base of the company has been in turmoil regarding the future of the brand.
Recently, the company launched the Nord CE 5G in India, which borrows certain core features from the Nord launched last year, in order to provide good features for a lower than usual price. Now, it seems like OnePlus is gearing up for the launch of the next Nord device, which will supposedly be called the Nord 2 and act as the successor of the original Nord that was launched in July of 2020.
