OnePlus has opened pre-orders for the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G, across Europe, with the device available at OnePlus.com and Amazon in the UK. To pre-order, the phone from OnePlus.com, while those wanting to pre-order from Amazon are priced at £299.99.
Featuring flagship-level 65W SuperVOOC charging, a Fast & Smooth user experience powered by the community-backed OxygenOS, an AI-powered triple camera kit that takes stunning point-and-shoot photos, and a thin, sleek design, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G allows for a true, burdenless OnePlus experience at an accessible price.
OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G is the newest OnePlus Nord phone in the Core Edition series, which seeks to create a great everyday phone with the core essentials of the OnePlus experience at an accessible price. 80% of users of the original OnePlus Nord CE were not previous OnePlus users, and the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G seeks to welcome even more users into OnePlus’ ever-growing community of users, enthusiasts and value-seekers.
The device features 65W SuperVOOC charging which leverages flagship-level dual-cell technology in the 4500 mAh battery to charge the phone for a day’s use in just 15 minutes. A full charge, from 1-100%, takes just 32 minutes. Under the hood, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset, with support for dual-SIM 5G and Wi-Fi 6. With a chipset that is both faster and more power-efficient than its predecessor, along with an HDR10+-certified, 6.43” 90Hz FHD+ AMOLED screen, the trademark Fast & Smooth OnePlus-experience is now more accessible than ever before.
A few fan-favourites from the OnePlus Nord CE 5G have also made it into the device, including the inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack. Furthermore, the device supports expandable storage with MicroSD cards up to 1 TB.
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 boasts an AI-powered triple camera. The 64 MP main camera captures images with high levels of detail and punchy colour, 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.
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 comes pre-installed with the most optimized version of OxygenOS 11, complete with an improved dark mode, new one-handed usage features, and more. OxygenOS 12 will be available for the device in the second half of 2022. In total, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 will receive 2 years of Android version updates and 3 years of Android security patches.
Coming in at just 7.8 mm thick – the OnePlus Nord CE 2 is even slimmer than the original OnePlus Nord CE, and is OnePlus’ slimmest smartphone since the OnePlus 6T.
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 comes in Gray Mirror and Bahama Blue colorways – the former has a mirror-like finish with flashy overtones that looks like luxurious polished metal while the latter is smooth with a gradient finish that provides mesmerizing colour transitions of blue and yellow.
