As expected, OnePlus has today launched its latest mid-range smartphone — OnePlus Nord 2 5G. As the name indicates, the device is the successor to the first Nord smartphone that was launched last year.
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G features a 6.43-inch FHD+ Fluid AMOLED display that offers a 90Hz refresh rate and a 20:9 aspect ratio. It also comes with support for some unique features like AI color boost, AI resolution boost smart ambient display, and more.
Under the hood, the device is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI chipset. The company says that it has worked closely with the chipset maker to enhance its AI-based features. It supports both NSA and SA 5G and comes packed with up to 12GB of RAM.
In the camera department, the phone has a triple-camera setup on the back that includes a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor, coupled with an 8-megapixel 119-degree ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel B&W sensor for portrait shots.
On the front side, the device has a 32-megapixel Sony IMX615 sensor for taking selfies and video calling. It’s noteworthy that the OnePlus Nord featured two camera sensors on the front but its successor comes with just one.
As for the software, the device runs Android 11 operating system out-of-the-box with the company’s own OxygenOS 11.3 custom user interface. It is based on the ColorOS 11.3 after OnePlus and OPPO merged the codebase for ColorOS and OxygenOS.
The company has confirmed that the smartphone will be getting two Android updates and three years of security updates. The device is powered by a 4,500mAh dual-cell battery and supports 65W fast charging technology.
