This week, we officially launch the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G – a device that enhances the essential features you value most at an accessible price point. With flagship 65W SUPERVOOC fast charging, a more powerful chipset, and an upgraded camera system – the OnePlus Nord CE 2 is an excellent everyday phone that maintains OnePlus’ high standard of quality.
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G also boasts signature OnePlus features, such as a 90 Hz AMOLED display, OxygenOS 11, and 5G support, along with popular hallmarks from the original OnePlus Nord CE like a slim design and headphone jack.
In short, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G tweaks the formula of the original Core Edition to deliver a little more than you expect.
Fast and Smooth Experience
The Fast and Smooth experience starts the moment you connect your brand-new OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G to the charger. It features flagship 65W SUPERVOOC fast charging that provides the phone’s 4,500 mAh dual-cell battery with up to a day’s power in just 15 minutes – twice as fast as the original OnePlus Nord CE 5G – and can take the device from 1-100% in 32 minutes.
65W SUPERVOOC is not only fast but also safe and efficient. Eight onboard temperature sensors and an independent charging integrated circuit ensure real-time monitoring of thermals while charging. The device is TÜV Rheinland certified for safe fast charging, meaning it has gone through rigorous testing to ensure the device delivers a charging experience that meets OnePlus’ high standards.
And yes, a 65W SUPERVOOC charging brick and a signature red USB-C cable are included in the OnePlus Nord CE 2’s box.
Powering the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G is the MediaTek Dimensity 900 octa-core chipset, complete with a 6 nm architecture along with support for 5G network speeds and Wi-Fi 6. The design of the MediaTek Dimensity 900 processor has been optimized for power efficiency that allows for improved thermal control, system stability, and prolonged gaming sessions.
And what better way to game than with a great display? On the front of the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G is a 6.43 inch FHD+ Fluid AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate that makes everything from scrolling through social media feeds to gaming feel smoother, faster, and more responsive. Furthermore, the OnePlus Nord CE 2’s display is HDR10+ certified, allowing you to enjoy richer, deeper colors across supported platforms like Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime Video.
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G boasts a rear 64 MP triple camera comprised of a 64 MP primary sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2 MP macro lens. The 64 MP main camera captures images with high levels of detail and punchy color, even in low-light environments thanks to its large f/1.7 aperture.
The OnePlus Nord CE 2’s camera hardware also combines with powerful AI software like Nightscape and an improved Portrait Mode that lets you capture sharp, sharable shots with the tap of a button.
In an instant, Nightscape takes up to nine different pictures at varying exposures and intelligently weaves them together to produce clearer, brighter, and more dramatic photos.
On the other hand, Portrait Mode is improved on the OnePlus Nord CE 2 with more accurate edge detection and the ability to adjust the level of software-produced depth of field when capturing a subject for greater creative control. Portrait Mode is supported on both the OnePlus Nord CE 2’s 64 MP rear camera and its 16 MP selfie camera.
Video capture on the OnePlus Nord CE 2 is taken even further with improved AI background lighting and color optimization that improves video quality when filming in low light, particularly in unevenly lit environments. This feature leverages dedicated video capturing algorithms that ensure exposure is more consistent in footage. In addition, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 allows you to record with both its front and rear cameras simultaneously with Dual-View Video, opening up a range of new creative opportunities when filming.
