    Dear Friends,

    2020 year was a big year for OnePlus. Last year, we grew the OnePlus family with the introduction of OnePlus Nord, a more accessible smartphone line that reaffirmed our mission of sharing great technology with the world. Thanks to our loyal community and new users, OnePlus Nord was one of our successful products ever. In Europe and India, Nord achieved the best first days of sales in OnePlus history, and was the most pre-ordered product ever on Amazon India.

    But record-setting sales wasn't the goal. The goal was, and always is, to make great technology more accessible. That’s why we launched more products under the OnePlus Nord line – the N series for our friends in North America, and the recent Nord CE in Europe and India. The N series are some the most affordable 5G smartphones in North America, and the OnePlus Nord CE 5G was the highest selling smartphone on launch day on Amazon.in.

    As always none of this would have been possible without the constant support and feedback from our community and tech enthusiasts around the world.

    Today, I’d like to share with you something many of you have anticipated for a while: the OnePlus Nord 2 5G.

    The "Never Settle" spirit is about the constant pursuit of perfection. The first OnePlus Nord was a fantastic product, but in the year since we launched it, we have continued reviewing your feedback and working on ways to improve the user experience for the next OnePlus Nord device. The OnePlus Nord 2 5G is a comprehensive upgrade from the first OnePlus Nord, from camera to performance to charging, as well as the newly AI-focused Dimensity 1200-AI SoC. We are confident that it delivers the dependable OnePlus fast and smooth experience you love, and lives up to the "Never Settle" ethos.

    Join us on July 22 as we officially introduce the OnePlus Nord 2 5G for our users in Europe and India.

    Never Settle,

    Curious about the product on July 22, but even more curious about "From the desk of Pete Lau".

    Is this going to be a new series here in the forums, @Pete? It can be interesting if it is and if you share some tidbits about, well, what's on your desk. A more intimate and direct line of communication between you and us, the members.

    Hey @Pete. Hope all well. So have been meaning to ask OnePlus and you, for a long time now. Is there any chance, that OnePlus chalks out a plan for all product launches in advance? Like for 2021, what are the product line ups , where are they getting launched, which versions/models etc? Because I've come across enough posts all over, where people have conveyed their resentment of buying a model and then just few months later OnePlus launches a better version of the same model. I mean, you just launched nord ce, what if just two (barely) months later you launch another Nord 2, which would fall around the same price range (below 30k). Users/hardcore fans feels betrayed.

    Hope 'you' shed some light. Take care.

    I think the attempts for hyping their new devices is a bit lame lately, this sure isn’t the hyped phone of the year compared with OP9 series.

    btw I also wonder what an “every day phone” is, do people carry a different phone during weekends or when the go out or something?

    People will feel betrayed whatever time period, if it’s two months, half a year or a year. History has proved this

    Nord CE was a flop in India, hope Nord 2 isn't and redeem the brand. For Rs.30k consumers can get IQOO 3 and Mi11x. Even better option like Realme X7 Max for Rs.26k with the same Dimensity 1200 or if the price is above Rs.30k then it will be a flop like Nord CE in India. Even other phones offer the same and better experience , like camera ,etc.

    OnePlus Nord 2 : 8GB+ 128GB- Rs.27999 and 12GB+256 GB- Rs.29999.

    Hope your team makes a right choice. Nowadays OnePlus products are overpriced instead of offering value for money products. Otherwise it would be difficult to compete against IQOO 3 , Mi 11x and Realme X7 which offers same specs at better OnePlus needs to redeem itself after a year of flop from OnePlus 9 series failure in India . Also don't give false promises.

    Hope OnePlus doesn't kill itself with over pricing. Sad to witness downfall of such a good brand.

    If it gets Hassleblad branding, then it could be hyped a lot in coming days I guess. Only if they slam a Hassleblad branding.
