The Nord series was a huge success for OnePlus. The company aims to thrive through its new offering, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G. The device is the toned-down version of the more premium sibling in the series. However, it has maintained much of the same experience but at a reduced price. So, let us have a quick look at the specs, availability, and expected price of the OnePlus Nord CE 5G in Nepal

OnePlus Nord CE 5G Overview

Display and Design

Starting off with the display, the OnePlus Nord CE comes with a 6.43 inches Fluid AMOLED panel with a  left-aligned punch-hole cutout to house its selfie camera. It has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The refresh rate here is stuck at 90Hz which is a little underwhelming for smartphones of this price range. For biometrics, it sports the fingerprint scanner underneath the display.

Comparing to previous phones from the Nord series, the new Nord CE has not upgraded much in terms of design. It flaunts its regular pill-shaped camera module. The handset is the company’s thinnest device, measuring just 7.9mm. However, Mi 11 Lite that measures 6.81mm only outclasses Nord CE in terms of thickness. Interestingly, Nord CE 5G retains the 3.5mm headphone jack that was missing in the first-gen Nord. The color options available in this smartphone are Charcoal Ink, Silver Ray, and Blue Void.

Performance and Memory

Powered with Snapdragon 750G, the powerful chipset from Qualcomm, the device is combined with Adreno 619 GPU. The SoC and GPU together can handle much of the task load. On the software side, the device runs on Android 11 with OxygenOS on its top. 

Users can select from three RAM variant choices for the Nord CE 5G: 6GB, 8GB, and 12GB RAM.  The 6GB and 8GB RAM come with 128GB of internal storage and the 12GB RAM comes with 256GB internal storage. The device does not provide flexibility in expanding the phone’s storage capacity through an SD card.

Camera

Compared with the predecessor, OnePlus Nord CE has upgraded its camera- you can spot a  triple camera array at the back where it flaunts a 64MP OmniVision sensor main camera (16 MP more than the original Nord), an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP depth camera. The rear camera supports features like AI scene detectionPortrait mode, Pro mode, Panorama, Tilt-shift mode, Nightscape, Video HDR, Video Portrait, Timelapse, and more. For capturing selfies and making video calls, there is a 16MP front shooter available. For video recording, the device can record 4k at 30fps and 1080p up to 120fps video. The selfie shooter supports 1080p video up to 60fps.

Battery and Extras

Another noticeable improvement is the battery of course. It comes with a 4500mAh battery which is slightly larger in contrary to the 4115mAh battery in the original Nord. With Warp Charge 30T Plus, the battery can go from 0 to 70% in just 30 minutes. Other features include  Customized Always on display, Dark mode, One hand wonder, 5G-ready, NFC, GPS, etc.

OnePlus Nord CE 5G Price in Nepal and Availability

The price of the OnePlus Nord CE 5G in Nepal is expected to be set at NPR 45,000 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage variant. Please note that this price is for reference purposes only, we will soon update the price once the phone arrives in Nepal. You might get this phone in almost all offline mobile stores across Nepal including online stores like Daraz Online after it is launched in Nepal.
