A new rumor claims that not only is there a successor to the mid-range OnePlus Nord – aptly called the OnePlus Nord 2 – but that it will launch without a Snapdragon chipset, opting instead for silicon from MediaTek.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets have powered most leading Android phones over the years, especially those sold in the US and Europe, and in every OnePlus phone reaching all the way back to the 2014 OnePlus One and its Snapdragon 801. But the OnePlus Nord 2 will pack the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset instead, sources told Android Central. They also claimed the phone will launch in Q2 2021, which could be as soon as next month.
