OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G was launched in India on Thursday, April 28, alongside the OnePlus 10R. The Nord CE 2 Lite is technically a “lite” version of the Nord CE 2 which was itself a watered-down Nord 2, with its main sales pitch being its relatively entry-level pricing for a OnePlus phone. This is the cheapest phone that OnePlus makes today. OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G price in India starts at just Rs 19,999 and it will be available starting April 30.

The design of the Nord CE 2 Lite looks familiar, no doubt, but it has some of the Nord elements intact to differentiate itself from similar looking Oppo and Realme phones. Like the OnePlus 10R, that’s also launching alongside, the Nord CE 2 Lite also comes with a dual tone/textured design. The top half of the phone has this brushed/stripes look while the bottom half is smooth. The phone will come in two colourways – Blue Tide and Black Dusk. Both versions are said to be fingerprint and smudge resistant.
