Global technology brand OnePlus released the OnePlus Nord 2 5G, the newest addition to the company’s affordable smartphone line, OnePlus Nord. The Nord 2 delivers a comprehensive upgrade from the first Nord, from camera and performance to charging and design.
OnePlus Nord 2
The OnePlus Nord 2 combines flagship-level hardware, including a 50MP AI triple camera with Sony IMX766 sensor and optical image stabilization (OIS), Warp Charge 65, and the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI processor, along with OnePlus’s signature OxygenOS software to offer users a fast, smooth, and versatile experience.
“The OnePlus Nord 2 5G reaffirms our commitment to sharing great technology with the world,” said Pete Lau, Founder of OnePlus. “With advancements in smartphone technologies even in the mid-range, we are now able to deliver premium experiences on more accessible devices. We are confident the Nord 2 is a worthy successor to the original OnePlus Nord.”
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G integrates powerful camera hardware with AI-assisted software enhancements, courtesy of the new MediaTek chipset, to deliver an outstanding and versatile photography experience. The Nord 2 brings major improvements in nighttime photography with OIS and the main 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor, which is capable of capturing 56% more light than the Sony IMX586 from the first Nord. With Nightscape Ultra, an enhanced version of OnePlus’s Nightscape Mode, users are able to shoot better and brighter photos even in conditions as dim as 1 lux.
The smartphone also features an 8MP ultra-wide camera with 119.7-degree field of view along with 32MP selfie camera with a Sony IMX615 sensor, the highest resolution front camera on a OnePlus device. The new Group Shots 2.0 feature on the front camera can detect up to five faces at a time, and optimizes aspects from skin tone to facial details. In addition, Nord 2 is equipped with AI Video Enhancement which improves the brightness, color, and contrast of video recordings in real-time. For stills, the Nord 2 comes with AI Photo Enhancement, a feature which recognizes up to 22 different photography scenarios and automatically adjusts the settings for improved results.
Like the flagship OnePlus 9 series, the Nord 2 features a 4500mAh dual cell battery. With its Warp Charge 65 charging technology, it charges from 0-100% in less than 35 minutes. The Nord 2 also adapts to reduce the time spent at 100% battery to maintain good battery health while charging overnight.
Fast and Smooth
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI processor. Built on TSMC’s 6nm process, the standard Dimensity 1200 boasts an ARM A78 architecture, providing 65% faster CPU performance and 125% GPU performance when compared to the performance on the OnePlus Nord released in July 2020.
OnePlus has worked closely with MediaTek to enhance the AI-based features of the processor. To highlight the new AI capabilities of the chipset, OnePlus and MediaTek have chosen the name Dimensity 1200-AI, distinguishing it from the standard Dimensity 1200.
The Nord 2 also comes with a 6.43-inch fluid AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. With new features such as AI Color Boost and AI Resolution Boost, which improve colors and upscale resolution from popular apps, the Nord 2 offers vivid and dynamic visual experiences.
The Nord 2 is pre-installed with OxygenOS 11.3, OnePlus’ fastest and most responsive software to date. OxygenOS 11 sports significant improvements such as Dark Mode, Zen Mode, comfortable single-handed operation, and various always on display (AOD) options, with additional personalization, gestures, and gaming-friendly customizations such as the new OnePlus Games App on OxygenOS 11.3.
