Rather after the buzz and official details, OnePlus has finally unveiled Nord 2 in India through a theatrical online launch event. Dramatic because the company came up with a movie that had the phone as the protagonist.
The smartphone has made the original Nord launched in India last year a success and marked the company’s re-entry in the Rs 30,000 bracket. It not only comes with an attractive space sheet but it also brings a new look. Here’s what you need to know about it.
OnePlus Nord 2 is finally official
Let’s start with the design. The Nord 2 borrowed its design from the OnePlus 9 phone and so we have a larger camera housing on the back than the pill-shaped camera hamp we saw in the previous one. On the front, there is a five-hole display that is rated at 6.43-inches. The screen is based on an AMOLED panel and comes with a full HD + screen resolution.
The display also has a 90Hz refresh rate for people to smooth things out. Under the hood, there is a MediaTek Dimension 1200-AI chip. It can be seen on the Oppo Renault 6 Pro 5G and even on the Realm X7 Max 5G. OnePlus One is expected to offer AI enhancements in the display, camera and gaming areas.
Like the previous Nord phone, it has three RAM / storage options to choose from. There are 6GB / 128GB models, an 8GB / 128GB model and a 12GB / 256GB model.
The camera segment has also seen improvements: it has a Sony IMX766 sensor and a 50-megapixel main camera with OIS support, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera with EIS and a 2-megapixel mono lens. The front camera stands at 32-megapixels.
The device has camera features like multi autofocus (PDF, CAF), 4K video, Nightscape Ultra mode, AI enhancement, portrait mode, night portrait mode, dual-view video and much more.
The device with 65W fast charge is backed by a 4,500mAh battery. It is claimed to reach 0 percent to 100 percent in just 30 minutes. It runs OxygenS 11.3 (on top with ColorOS) based on Android 11.3 It supports two years older and three years security update.
Additional features include dual speakers, Haptix 2.0. An in-display fingerprint scanner, Face Unlock, 5G (of course), NFC, Bluetooth version 5.2 and more. The phone is protected in the colors of Gray Sierra, Blue Hedge and Green Wood.
How much does it cost?
