As we can see, all the Nord Series were huge successes for Oneplus. After all the rumors and teasers of the company adding a new member, they have just launched the successor to last year’s OnePlus Nord. The Nord 2 5G is a remarkable upgrade in multiple ways. 

What’s more exciting is, it is the company’s first OnePlus phone with a MediaTek chipset whereas it is also the first major launch after the OnePlus-Oppo merger. Here, Let’s have a detailed look at the specs, features of the OnePlus Nord 2 5G along with the price and availability in Nepal.

OnePlus Nord 2 5G Overview

Display and Design

OnePlus Nord 2 5G features a 6.43-inch Fluid AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and a 90Hz refresh rate. The pill-shaped cutout is now replaced with a single punch-hole. Fortunately, the Nord 2 5G has the iconic alert slider, which was absent on the recent OnePlus Nord CE. On the front and back, there is Gorilla Glass 5, while the frames are polycarbonate.

Nord 2 has taken its design clues from the OnePlus 9 series. Users can get three colors to choose from – Gray Sierra, Blaze Haze, and Green Woods. The latter has a vegan leather finishing and is India-exclusive. The other two come with a dual-layer 3D AG glass.

Performance and Memory

Software-wise, OnePlus Nord 2 5G runs on OxygenOS 11.3. This is the first OnePlus phone to ship with OxygenOS-ColorOS merged codebase. A remarkable addition here is a game optimization app called OnePlus Game. The smartphone will receive two years of major software updates and an additional year of security updates.

On the memory side, the phone comes with two variants they are 8GB RAM 128GB internal storage, and 12GB RAM 256GB internal storage. Unfortunately, there is no dedicated slot for a microSD card so does not provide you the flexibility to expand your phone storage if needed.

Dimensity 1200-AI

Using the Open Resource Architecture, OnePlus has collaborated with MediaTek to combine additional AI features to the Dimensity 1200. Therefore, OnePlus has provided the chip a new name—Dimensity 1200-AI.

The added features on Nord 2 5G brings advancement in display, camera, and performance. For photography, it will have  AI Photo/Video Enhancement and DOL-HDR.

Additionally, it has the Color Boost feature that will make the colors pop more on YouTube videos. Gamers will be enabled to enjoy high refresh rates on games such as Brawl Stars. OnePlus is also likely to add more games in the future.

Camera

When it comes to the camera at the back, Nord 2 features a OnePlus 9-like camera module. Nevertheless, the flash is placed differently. Here, the 50 MP Sony IMX766 sensor is the primary camera. Taking a note, it is the same sensor as in 9 Pro‘s ultrawide camera. Users get Digital Overlap HDR (DOL-HDR) and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on the primary sensor. 

Talking about the camera, the smartphone features an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP monochrome sensor completing the triple camera array. However, there is no macro sensor this time. Upfront, for selfies and video calls there is a 32MP Sony IMX615 sensor.

Moving on to video, the rear camera on the phone can support  4K at 30 fps, 1080p@30/60/240fps video recording. And at the front, it supports 1080p at 30 fps

Besides this, assorted camera features on the One Plus Nord 2 5G include the new Dual Video, Night Portraits, Nightscape Ultra, and the aforementioned AI Photo and Video enhancement.

Battery and Extras

Similar to the OnePlus 9 series, this smartphone is fueled by a 4,500mAh battery. The OnePlus Nord 2 also matches the flagship devices in charging speed too. Here, we can find that OnePlus has included the same 65W fast charging which is a remarkable upgrade from the 30W charging on the original Nord. For this to work, the company has divided the battery into two cells.
