It looks like OnePlus found success in building budget phones, which is why they made a new one, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G.

The new OnePlus Nord CE 5G sits between the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and the OnePlus Nord. This one is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G octa-core processor, which brings the latest connectivity feature to the device.


Update 6/30/21: The OnePlus Nord CE official price in the Philippines have been announced.

Unlike a couple of budget phones, OnePlus didn’t make a lot of compromises on this one. It still has a fast 90Hz refresh rate with a colorful FHD+ AMOLED panel.

What’s cool is, it has a bigger battery than the first Nords. It comes with a 4,500mAh capacity. A 70% charge will still take 30 minutes with its 30W Warp Dash 30T+ charging.


The cameras on the back are quite similar. There’s a 64-megapixel main snapper, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and 2-megapixel mono sensor. No nonsense lens. On the front, there’s a sharp 16-megapixel camera.

As you can see on the specs list below, it’s also one of the thinnest and lightest phones today, with a weight and thinness of 170g and 7.9mm, respectively. Oh, and before we forget, “CE” stands for “Core Edition”.


The OnePlus Nord CE 5G has a price of INR22,999 (around Php15,000) for the 6GB/128GB, INR24,999 (around Php16,300) for 8GB/128GB, and INR27,999 (around Php18,300) for the 12GB/256GB. OnePlus already confirmed it would arrive in the Philippines, so stay tuned for its local price and availability.
