OnePlus has officially unveiled the OnePlus Nord 2, its latest mid-range offering packing a 90Hz display and a powerful MediaTek chipset. The OnePlus Nord 2 is the successor to the popular mid-range OnePlus Nord from last year.
Despite a mid-range smartphone that’s substantially cheaper than the more expensive OnePlus 9 series, the OnePlus Nord 2 packs many of the features found on its more premium siblings.
OnePlus Nord 2 Specs and Features
The OnePlus Nord 2 features a polycarbonate frame that’s sandwiched by Gorilla Glass 5 panels at the front and back. The front is dominated by the 6.43-inch FHD+ 90Hz AMOLED display that also features an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Inside the OnePlus phone is MediaTek’s flagship Dimensity 1200 chip fabricated on the 6nm mode. This is the first time that OnePlus is using a non-Qualcomm chip in one of its devices.
The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chip features an octa-core CPU consisting of four Cortex-A78 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores @ 2GHz. One high-power Cortex-A78 core is clocked at 3GHz, while the remaining three are running at 2.6GHz.
This is paired with the Mali-G77 MP9 GPU and the Helio M70 modem that supports sub-6GHz 5G networks. The OnePlus Nord 2 will be available with 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB or 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage.
Powering the device is a 4,500mAh battery, which supports 65W Warp Charging. This means you’ll be able to charge the OnePlus Nord 2 from 0-100 percent in less than 30 minutes.
The rear of the OnePlus Nord 2 houses a triple-camera setup. This includes a primary Sony IMX766 50MP f/1.8 sensor with OIS, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide, and a 2MP monochrome sensor. The primary 50MP sensor is the same one that OnePlus also uses on its flagship OnePlus 9 Pro. At the front, there’s a 32MP f/2.45 Sony IMX615 camera for selfie purposes.
Other key features of the OnePlus Nord 2 include dual stereo speakers, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, USB-C port, and dual nano-SIM slots. On the software front, the OnePlus Nord 2 runs on OxygenOS 11.3 with some new gaming features in tow. The phone will receive two major Android updates and three years of security updates from OnePlus.
