The new smartphone will go official on July 22 and ahead of the release, it has been leaking in the wild. The device was revealed by the company a couple of days ago, more recently we saw the Blue Haze and Gray colorways. Now, a new color has been spotted through a design render. Apparently, the OnePlus Nord 2 will get an additional coat of paint.
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G has emerged in a Red Color that will be dubbed Hot Red. The new leak comes as a courtesy of popular leakster Evan Blass. We have just a matte red finish instead of a gradient, we have to say that it looks gorgeous. Those who enjoy Red smartphones will certainly enjoy this new colorway. Now, it’s safe to assume that the OnePlus Nord will come in three colorways – Blue Haze, Gray Sierra, and Red Colors. That’s one more color than what leaks have been suggesting so far.
