Last week renders of an upcoming OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite surfaced, now we’re getting some more details about the device through regulators and other sources. A device with a model number GN2200 is suspected of being the Lite phone and it was just certified by the FCC.
It shows 5G connectivity (bands: 2, 25, 41, 66, 71) and appears to be powered by a Snapdragon chipset rather than a Dimensity like the other two Nord 2 models. Punching in “GN2200” into the Geekbench database reveals one result.

This is either Snapdragon 480+ chipset or the Snapdragon 695. Both appear to use the same code name (“holi”), but the 695 uses newer CPU cores (based on A78 instead of A76) and a full-blooded Adreno 619 (vs. 619L). Given the Geekbench scores, we think it’s the 695 (this matches the rumor from early February). Either way, the phone ran Android and had 6 GB of RAM.

Certifications by TUV Rheinland reveal that the phone has a 4,500 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support. The charger outputs 5-11V at 3A. This is the same battery capacity as the Nord CE 2, but half the charging power.

Anyway, another source provided information about the camera. The main module has a 1/1.8” sensor (0.7 µm pixels) and a lens with an f/1.7 aperture and electronic image stabilization.

Three camera modules are visible on the back in the renders, but current information suggests that the other two are a depth sensor and a macro cam. The selfie camera is expected to have a 16 MP sensor and a 6.6" display on the front.
We haven’t heard anything on when the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite will be made official, but all the documentation seems to be ready, so it can’t be long now. By the way, this appears to be identical to the Realme V25.
