Since OnePlus reorganized its management and strategies, we’re now seeing more and more budget phones from the company. Now, they have another one with the Nord 2T.
The OnePlus Nord 2T tries to impress by having a MediaTek Dimensity 1300 processor, the first smartphone to have it. Built on TSMC’s 6nm process, this one boasts a single Cortex A78 core clocked at 3.0GHz. It also has three of the standard Cortex A78 cores at 2.6GHz and four 2GHz Cortex A55. Graphics are handled by a Mali-G77 MC9 GPU.
Big on numbers, the Nord 2T also boasts a 90Hz refresh rate. Not the fastest, but it does use a colorful AMOLED panel that’s 6.43-inch in size and has an FHD+ pixel resolution.
The fast and vibrant screen is joined by stereo speakers for a complete experience.
A punch-hole on top of the screen holds a 32-megapixel main camera, while on the back, we have two large lenses for the 50-megapixel IMX 766 main shooter and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide.
Upon closer inspection, the second lens also houses a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor.
The Nord 2T managed to have an ultra-fast 80W SuperVOOC charging. The 4,500mAh battery is not the biggest, but OnePlus claims that a 15-minute charge can already provide a day’s power.
What’s more, the Nord 2T will ship with Android 12-based OxygenOS 12.1 software out of the box, and a promise from OnePlus to get two major Android updates and three years of security patches.
The OnePlus Nord 2T has a starting price of EUR399 (around Php22,000) for the 8GB/128GB while the 12GB/256GB is at EUR499 (around Php27,600). Both variants can be had in Jade Fog or Gray Shadow colors. It will be available in Europe starting May 24 while release details in markets like the Philippines are yet to be announced.
