It’s now official, OnePlus has just announced the release of two new smartphones from the Nord series. These are the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G and OnePlus Nord 2T 5G, of which here are all the details and which compete with the mid-range models already available.
two new smartphones announced, the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G is the most interesting. Indeed, it offers a classic template with equally conventional shapes and a rather discreet rear optical unit. It weighs 190 grams in the pocket or in the hand, which is still reasonable. It is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1300 processor associated with 8 or 12 GB of RAM, depending on the configuration chosen and 128 or 256 GB of internal storage space that cannot be expanded. It benefits from a battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh but which charges very quickly, as fast as on the OnePlus 10 Pro, the brand’s most high-end model at the moment supporting the charge at 80 watts. The screen is of the AMOLED type with a diagonal of 6.43 inches for HDR10+ compatibility to enjoy the video content of certain streaming platforms offering this format. It refreshes at just 90Hz which is still better than 60Hz but falls short of the 120Hz allowed by other models.
The mobile is 5G compatible as its name suggests and it can pick up Wi-Fi 6. It is also NFC but does not have an audio jack to connect headphones. The fingerprint reader is installed under the screen. The mobile has the Slider Alert push button to mute with a single gesture. It offers stereo sound from two speakers installed on the upper and lower profiles. Finally, for photos, the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G has an optically stabilized 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 main sensor paired with an 8-megapixel sensor for wide-angle shots and a final 2-megapixel monochrome sensor. there to optimize the portraits. At the front, to take a selfie, we can count on the presence of the same sensor as the OnePlus 10 Pro, a 32-megapixel Sony IMX615 also widely used by other high-end mobiles from other brands.
The new OnePlus Nord 2T 5G smartphone is powered by Android 12 with an OxygenOS 12.1 software overlay. OnePlus promises 2 major Android updates and 3 years of security updates. It will be available in two colors, gray or green.
OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G, a less attractive technical sheet
The new OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G completes the brand’s range. It has a slightly less interesting technical sheet than the Nord 2T 5G since it uses a Snapdragon 695 processor with 6 GB of RAM and a single storage capacity of 128 GB without the possibility of inserting a memory card. Its battery is larger since it has a capacity of 5000 mAh but charges less quickly since it supports charging at 33 watts.
The screen is also smaller since it is a 6.59-inch LCD panel but still benefits from a refresh rate of 120 Hz for smooth scrolling. The device is 5G compatible and offers Wi-Fi 5 as well as NFC and Bluetooth. There is an audio jack for connecting headphones but no Alert slider push button. The fingerprint reader is installed on the profile.
Finally, for the photo part, we can count on the presence of a main 64-megapixel sensor and two 2-megapixel sensors for calculating the depth of field and macro photos. For selfies, you have to settle for a 16-megapixel lens. The new OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G smartphone is available in blue or black with flat edges. It runs on Android with an OxygenOS 12.1 software overlay.
