OnePlus has announced the expected successor of the Nord, which will receive the unimaginative name Nord 2 5G. Aspects like camera, charging and performance must have been upgraded. As mentioned earlier, MediaTek’s Dimensity 1200 processor is used, which is given the AI suffix through enhancements specifically requested by OnePlus for artificial intelligence. This soc should have cpu and gpu performance of 65 and 120 percent respectively, higher than the first Nord with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G.
The 6.43-inch Full HD AMOLED display still has a refresh rate of 90Hz, but the color reproduction would have been improved with the help of artificial intelligence tools. The primary camera has 50 megapixels and the Sony IMX766 sensor that can capture more than 50% more light. It can also use optical image stabilization. There is also an ultrawide from 8MP and a selfie camera from 32MP with the IMX615. Thanks to the new chip, all cameras are equipped with the necessary AI image processing.
Just like in the 9 series, OnePlus uses a double battery with a capacity of 4500mAh, which can be fully charged in 35 minutes with 65 watts. When charging overnight, the Nord 2 reduces the time spent at 100% to conserve battery power. A set of stereo speakers is included, an upgrade over the original Nord which only had one speaker. Both SIM slots have support for 5G with which download speeds of up to 2.95 gigabits per second can be achieved.
OxygenOS 11.3 based on Android 11 should provide fast transitions and have several nice features. These include a built-in dark mode, Zen Mode, improved haptic feedback and one-handed controls. There will be two major Android updates and the phone will receive three years of security updates.
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G will be available in Europe in blue and gray, from the green version shown on the Indian website state is unknown. The smartphone could be pre-ordered from now until midnight on July 27, although there is no Dutch product page yet. The first products will be shipped on the 26th. If you order via OnePlus itself, you will receive a 10% discount on a case and screen protector, as well as a set of Buds Z for half the price. You also get free Stadia Premiere Edition with a Stadia Controller and Google Chromecast Ultra. The Nord 2 with 8GB of ram and 128 gigabytes of storage comes with a price tag of 400 euros, for 12GB of memory and doubling the storage space you pay an extra 100 euros.
