The device sports a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. Other parameters include support for HDR10+ and the Aqua Touch feature, which should help users use the display with wet hands or, in such situations, hassle-free.

Underneath, the OnePlus Nord CE 4 is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 coupled with Adreno 720 GPU — a mid-range SoC aimed at cheaper Android phones that promises effortless multitasking alongside power efficiency. 

It further features up to 8GB of RAM (LPDDR4X) and 256GB of onboard storage (UFS 3.1). The RAM is additionally expandable via virtual RAM with expansion options including 4/6/8GB.

The Nord CE 4 has a large 5500mAh battery capacity, with 100W SuperVOOC charging support, and promises to juice up the battery to full in less than half an hour. The device is set to come with an Android 14-based OxygenOS 14

It's packed with a 50MP Sony LYT-600 with OIS as the primary sensor, aided by an 8MP ultra-wide lens (Sony IMX355). For video, the rear camera supports up to 4K at 30fps. On the front, the punch hole hosts a 16MP selfie shooter supporting EIS.

The other highlights of the Nord CE 4 handset include a dual stereo speaker setup, support for microSD for expandable storage, Bluetooth 5.4, Wi-Fi 6, and 5G. 

When it comes to pricing, the 8GB+128GB storage variant costs Rs 24,999 (~$300), and the larger 8GB RAM and 256GB storage retails at Rs 26,999 (~$324). The company is putting the device for sale starting on April 4, and users who reserve it on the same day will get the OnePlus Nord Buds 2r for free as part of the launch.
