OnePlus launches the new Nord CE 2 5G!
This new OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G is the stripped-down version of their last year’s Nord 2 5G. While the CE in its name stands for Core Edition, which means it focuses on core features rather than unnecessary extras. Besides, this Nord CE 2 5G also comes with a new design and processor.
Speaking of processor, it will arrive with a lower 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G-ready octa-core chipset, from Dimensity 1200. This device will come with a 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM variant. However, its internal storage is only 128GB UFS 2.2. Unlike the Nord 2 5G, this Core Edition has an available microSD card slot. So, if 128GB is not enough for you, you can invest in a memory card.
Moreover, it still carries a 6.43-inch AMOLED screen with FHD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate support. Its display is also HDR10+ certified, letting you can experience richer, deeper colors across compatible platforms such as Netflix and YouTube.
The Nord CE 2 5G’s camera island also got a new design that is more modern looking compared to its brother. It consists of a higher 64MP wide-angle main shooter, 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro sensor.
Besides, it will feature the same 4,500mAh battery capacity with 65W SuperVOOC fast charging technology. The device is TÜV Rheinland certified for safe fast charging, therefore, its 65W is not only fast but also safe and efficient.
For software, it has a pre-installed optimized version of OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11. However, OnePlus mentioned that the OxygenOS 12 will be available in the device in the second half of 2022. It will also receive 2 years of Android version updates and 3 years for Android security patches.
