Meanwhile, the Indian market awaits the arrival of the OnePlus 10 Pro, the company has expanded its Nord line of affordable phones. Refreshed look and an upgraded MediaTek 5G chipset are just some of the new features of the new OnePlus Nord CE 2 when it goes on sale in India. The current Nord device’s specs, pricing, and availability are detailed below.
OnePlus Nord CE 2 Launch Specification
To begin with, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 is available in two distinct color schemes and materials. Colors like Mirror Gray and Bahama Blue have a glossy, reflective finish, while Bahama Blue is a striking shade of blue. Two large housings, a smaller camera, and an LED flash are all housed within a rectangular camera bump on the back panel of the glass.
This phone has the same three-camera setup as the Nord CE, which was its predecessor. A 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro camera are all included. EIS and Nightscape are supported by a 16MP punch-hole selfie camera on the front.
The Nord CE’s display is nearly identical to the Nord CE’s display. There is a 6.43-inch Full HD+ Fluid AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 180Hz touch response rate in the OnePlus Nord CE 2. An under-display fingerprint sensor is included in the panel, which has a 2400 x 1080p resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. In addition, the alert slider is absent from the Nord CE 2, as shown in the image below.
The MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G, a 6nm chipset, powers the OnePlus Nord CE 2, the company’s latest flagship smartphone. Additionally, there is up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. OnePlus claims that customers upgrading to budget phones to Nord phones wanted microSD card support (up to 1TB).
When it comes to the software, be prepared for a letdown. Out-of-the-box, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 runs OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11. As revealed in a private press briefing, the company is delaying the release of the latest OxygenOS 12 update for the sake of stability. I was disappointed to see an older version of OxygenOS on the OnePlus One, which was released nearly six months after Android 12 was released to consumers. It will also receive three years of security patches in addition to two full years of Android 12 and 13 major software updates.
The device is powered by a 4,500mAh battery that supports 65W SuperVOOC fast charging. In terms of connectivity, it offers 5G, Bluetooth 5.1, Wi-Fi 6, a 3.5mm headphone jack (a rarity these days), and a USB-C port. Our initial thoughts on the Nord CE 2 can be found here.
