OnePlus has a new product launch later this month, and the company has started teasing with tweets and landing pages. The teasers showcase two smartphone models and true wireless earbuds from OnePlus. Though the company doesn’t specify or mention those products, the image posted on the Amazon landing page has some details suggesting that it is likely the OnePlus Nord CE Lite 2 5G. The teasers also indicate that the launch will occur at the end of this month, April 18th, at 7 PM IST.
OnePlus Nord CE Lite 2 5G
The OnePlus Nord CE Lite 2 has been in the news for a while now, and early last week, we saw its leaked renders — thanks to tipster Yogesh Brar. The renders resembled highly inspired designs from the recent Realme 9 Pro and the Pro+ models. That includes a new camera module with two big sensors and a punch-hole display on the front. The other expected specs, according to the tipster, include:
- 6.58-inch Full HD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC
- Up to 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage
- 64MP+2MP+2MP rear cameras
- 16MP selfie shooter
- 5000mAh battery supporting fast charging
In another recent tweet from another tipster, the devices launching on April 28th are said to be the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G, the rumoured OnePlus 10R 5G and the new Nord Buds TWS from the company. The OnePlus 10R 5G has also been in the news for a while now. It is also expected to feature a Dimensity 8100 SoC and 150W Fast Charging for the first time. The other notable specs include a 6.7-inches display, a 50MP triple camera setup, 16MP selfie shooter, to name a few.
Another tipster Mukul Sharma (aka stufflistings), further confirms that we will hopefully see a OnePlus Ace device. But, it isn’t sure whether the device’s launch can be seen on April 28th. If the ‘Ace’ moniker sounds familiar, that’s because it’s a series introduced by OPPO (OPPO Reno Ace (2019)) in the past, and we haven’t seen the series take off. It looks like OPPO has saved the series for the OnePlus as the merger between both of them was announced last year.
OnePlus Ace, OnePlus 10R 5G, and OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G are also coming to India.

While we don’t know much about the OnePlus Ace yet, one more tipster, Digital Chat Station, confirmed last week what to expect from the new Ace device from OnePlus. It is supposed to be coming with Dimisensity 8100 SoC and will feature 150W super flash charging.
Meanwhile, Digital Chat Station has also suggested the vanilla OnePlus 10, which didn’t launch alongside the OnePlus 10 Pro earlier, is saved from being launched as the OPPO Reno 8. The tipster has mentioned that it would carry a similar design from the Pro variant and ship with a 6.55-inches 120Hz display with 2400 x 1080 resolution. It will also have a punch-hole display on the upper left corner and a 50MP IMX766 triple rear camera.
