(Pocket-lint) – As we approach 22 July, AKA OnePlus Nord 2 reveal day, more and more rumoured information about the affordable handset comes to light.
The latest is that the Nord 2 will employ optical image stabilisation (OIS) for its main camera. That’s a big-hitter feature for a more affordable phone, where such features typically lack.
Not a huge amount of information has been available about the Nord 2’s cameras to date. It’s thought that a triple rear unit will comprise a 50-megapixel main (the same as in the OnePlus 9 and Oppo Find X3 Pro, according to @ishanagarwal24’s Tweet, in full below) – along, of course, with that stabilisation – alongside an 8-megapixel (likely a wide-angle) and 2-megapixel (likely a depth/macro sensor).

It’s good to see camera improvements, step by step, because all too often handsets arrive with excessive numbers of lenses on the rear – few of which do a great deal. OnePlus has of course been looking to progress in this area, with its Hasselblad partnership in the OnePlus 9 Pro.
With just over a week to go until the Nord 2’s full reveal there’s already a lot of factual information out there: it’ll have a 6.43-inch AMOLED panel with 90Hz refresh rate and MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI chipset under the hood.
The full and final details, including price and on-the-shelf date, we’ll find out on the 22 July at the full reveal though. If there’s anything left to actually ‘reveal’ by that date!
