OnePlus Nord 2 5G (Overseas Model): Overview
Design and Display
Oneplus Nord 2 5G features a 6.43-inch Fluid AMOLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate. Thankfully, the Nord 2 5G retains the iconic alert slider, which was left out on the recent OnePlus Nord CE. The phone has Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back, while the frames are polycarbonate.
Oneplus Nord 2 5G has taken its design cues from the OnePlus 9 series. There are three colors to choose from – Blaze Haze, Gray Sierra, and Green Woods. The other two feature a dual-layer 3D AG glass.
Dimensity 1200-AI SoC
OnePlus has collaborated with MediaTek to include additional AI features to the Dimensity 1200 using the Open Resource Architecture. As a result, OnePlus has given the chip a new name—Dimensity 1200-AI.
Nord 2 5G brings improvements in camera, display, and performance. For photography, there will be AI Photo/Video Enhancement and DOL-HDR.
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 notable addition here is a game optimization app called OnePlus Game.
At the back, Oneplus Nord 2 5G has a OnePlus 9-like camera module. However, the placement of the flash is different. The primary camera here is the 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor. It is capable of recording 4K videos at 30fps.
Moving on, there’s an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP monochrome sensor completing the triple camera array. There is no macro sensor this time around. Upfront, you get a 32MP Sony IMX615 sensor for selfies and video calls.
This phone is fueled by a 4,500mAh battery. The Nord 2 matches the flagship devices in charging speed too. OnePlus has included the same 65W fast charging here, which is a notable upgrade from the 30W charging on the original Nord.
