About 6 months ago, OnePlus introduced the Nord 2 5G mid-range phone as a replacement for the Nord model; The Chinese have now unveiled a cheaper version of the same phone called the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G. They say the CE suffix stands for Core Edition; Because the new phone is actually the weaker version of Nord 2 with the new outfit.
The new Nord CE 2, like its sibling, features a 6.43-inch OLED display with a 4,500mAh battery with support for SuperVOOC 65-watt fast charge; The difference is that it uses a weaker Dimensity 900 5G chip to provide processing power and has a relatively better camera set.
Despite being less than 7.8mm thick, the Nord CE 2 also features a 3.5mm headphone jack and memory card slot; While the more powerful Nord 2 model lacked these features. The back of the phone has a different design than the Nord 2 and hosts a range of 64-megapixel main cameras, 8-megapixel Ultraviolet and 2-megapixel macro. The Nord CE 2 uses a 16-megapixel camera to take selfies.
The Nord CE 2 comes with 128GB of storage and 6 or 8GB of RAM, and runs Android 11 with OxygenOS 11.3 by default. OnePlus economic intermediate sales in gray and blue with a base price of 349 euros will begin on March 10 (March 19) in the European market.
