OnePlus has confirmed that it will launch the OnePlus Nord CE 4 Lite 5G smartphone in India on June 24. As the brand has confirmed, the Nord CE 3 Lite 5G successor will feature a 50MP Sony LYT-600 main camera, a major upgrade over its current camera hardware. Further, we also got the press images revealing the device in full glory.

In spite of that, some disappointing news has been revealed by tipster Paras Guglani. According to a spec sheet shared by Paras on X (formerly Twitter), the Nord CE 4 Lite 5G will have a Snapdragon 695 processor. This processor was launched back in October 2021 and uses a 6-nanometer process. It has been found on many budget-midrange 5G smartphones, including the Nord CE 3 Lite 5G, for the past few years.

The Nord CE 4 Lite 5G is rebranded from the Oppo K12x, which uses the same processor, and while disappointing, it isn’t a surprise. As a cost-saving measure, the brand may be opting for this old processor rather than the Snapdragon 6s Gen 3 to still be within the sub-20,000 price range, despite features such as a new Sony LYT-600 primary camera and an AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and 2100 nits peak brightness. Additionally, an in-display fingerprint sensor will replace the side-mounted sensor.

OnePlus has also confirmed an increase in battery capacity from 5,000mAh to 5,500mAh. As the Oppo K12x has 80W fast charging, we can expect it to be upgraded.
