As for the 50th launch of the OnePlus smartphone this year, the company has just unveiled two new phones for the UK – OnePlus Nord 2T and OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite.
Of these, the OnePlus Nord 2T is a star, is the top of the two, but it’s also an extremely similar phone on OnePlus Nord 2.
It has a 6.43-inch FHD AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz and HDR10 +, 8 GB or 12 GB of RAM, 128 GB or 256 GB of memory, 4500 mAh battery, 5G, 50 MP main camera, 8 MP ultra-wide camera , 2 MP mono and 32 megapixel front.
It’s basically all the same as the OnePlus Nord 2, but there are a few updates here. For one thing, here you get a faster charge at 80 watts, the same as on OnePlus 10 Pro. There is also the best chipset (MediaTek Dimensity 1300) and it comes with new software in the form of OxygenOS 12.1. There are also some improved camera features, including night landscape modes and AI video balancing.
Then it doesn’t look like a huge upgrade, but at a starting price of £ 369 (around $ 460 / A $ 655) it shouldn’t be, as at the time of writing this is exactly what the OnePlus Nord 2 is worth.
That’s 8GB of RAM and 128GB of memory, and the price goes up to a still pretty reasonable £ 469 (about $ 580/830 Australian dollars) for 12GB of RAM and 256GB of memory.
As for the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite, which was previously launched in India, so we already knew what to expect. It has a 6.59-inch 120Hz LCD screen, Snapdragon 695 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of memory, 5000mAh battery, 33W charge, 64MP main camera, 2MP depth sensor, 2MP for macro and 1 MP. camera.
You can pick up this phone for £ 279 (approximately $ 345 / $ 495), both of which will go on sale on May 24 in the UK. Availability in the US is not reported, but we would not expect to see them there, and Australia is even less likely, as OnePlus now does not sell anything in Australia.
Finally, OnePlus also launched OnePlus Nord Buds in the UK after Fr. a recent post for the US. For $ 39 / £ 49 (about A $ 85) they give you a volume of up to 98 decibels, Dolby Atmos audio, a 12.4mm titanium-coated driver, 4 microphones, AI-based noise reduction algorithms and an IP55 rating.
You can count on 7 hours of battery life from Nord Buds, while the charging case offers 30 hours before you need to stock up. There is no exact date of their release, but expect them around June.
Of course, the company may well stop releasing OnePlus Nord 2, given that Nord 2T is the best phone at the same price. At a minimum, price reductions will be required if the company hopes to continue selling the old model.
OnePlus Nord CE may also need a price reduction if OnePlus hopes to continue selling it, as it is priced at almost the same level as the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite, and on paper looks a bit worse than the phone.
