OnePlus is known for creating affordable mid-range smartphones that provide a premium, user-focused experience. They’ve done it again with the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G, offering a little more than you’d expect with solid specs that even make the lustre of some flagships wane. The Nord CE 2 takes the core OnePlus experience further with faster charging, a more powerful chipset, and smarter cameras. It’s a superb option for users looking for a premium smartphone experience, without the premium prices.
“The OnePlus Nord CE 2 enhances the essential features our community users value most at an accessible price point,” said Pete Lau, Founder of OnePlus. “With flagship 65W SUPERVOOC fast charging, a more powerful chipset and an upgraded camera system – the OnePlus Nord CE 2 is an excellent everyday phone that maintains OnePlus’ high standard of quality.”
As with all OnePlus smartphones, the Nord CE 2 has a sleek design with a premium look and feel. It’s only 7.8mm thick, making it one of OnePlus’ slimmest smartphones, and it’s available in two colours – Grey Mirror and Bahama Blue. On the front, it features a 6.43-inch FHD+ Fluid AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate that makes everything from scrolling through social media to gaming feel smoother, faster, and more responsive. The display is also HDR10+ certified, meaning you’ll get richer, deeper colours when streaming videos and movies.
Inside, you’ll find a MediaTek Dimensity 900 octa-core chipset, complete with a 6 nm architecture and support for 5G and Wi-Fi 6. The design of the MediaTek Dimensity 900 processor has been optimised for power efficiency that allows for improved thermal control, system stability and prolonged gaming sessions. If you’re a superuser who’ll be steaming through the large 4,500 mAh battery, you’ll appreciate the flagship 65W SUPERVOOC fast charging. It charges up the phone’s battery up to a day's power in just 15 minutes (or from 0-100% in 32 minutes) – that means only a small amount of downtime before you can get back to those prolonged use!
One of the great features of the OnePlus Nord CE 2 is its camera. It boasts a rear triple camera comprised of a 64 MP primary sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2 MP macro lens. The 64 MP main camera will capture high levels of detail and punchy colour, even in low-light environments thanks to its large f/1.7 aperture. It’s not just the photos that will impress. The OnePlus Nord CE 2 also does great with video thanks to improved AI background lighting and colour optimization that improves video quality, even when filming in low light. In addition, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 allows you to record with both its front and rear cameras simultaneously with Dual-View Video, opening up a range of new creative opportunities when filming.
To top things off, the Nord CE 2 also has Dual Sim (2 SIM card slots) as well as a microSD slot that allows you to expand the device's storage up to 1TB. For a mid-range smartphone, the specs are looking rather impressive on the OnePlus Nord CE 2. To get your hands on this stellar smartphone, shop for it online or at 16 PB Tech stores nationwide.
