OnePlus has added a new smartphone to its Nord line called the OnePlus Nord CE 5G. The new smartphone is a lower version of the first Nord smartphone but also comes with a few upgrades and a more affordable price tag.
The OnePlus Nord CE features a 6.43-inch Fluid AMOLED display with a hole at the top left corner for the front-facing camera. The screen has a 20:9 aspect ratio and a 90Hz refresh rate but there is no mention of HDR10. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 750G processor and it is paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage.
There are three cameras on the rear – a 64MP main sensor with an f/1.79 aperture and a 0.7 µm pixel size. There is also an 8MP f/2.25 ultrawide angle camera with a 119° field of view and electronic image stabilization. Last is a 2MP f/2.4 mono camera which OnePlus conveniently omits in the launch. There are a number of features built into the camera app such as AI Scene Detection, Night Mode, UltraShot HDR, and Portrait Mode.
The Nord CE has a 16MP front-facing camera with Face Unlock, an in-display fingerprint scanner, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.1, and dual nano-SIM support.
There is a 4500mAh battery inside the device, and with the new OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Plus, it charges from empty to 70% in 30 minutes. OnePlus ships the phone with OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11 and it has features such as Dark Mode, AOD, and Zen Mode.
OnePlus is promising 3 years of security updates and 2 years of software updates which means it should get Android 12 and Android 13.
Battery Type and Capacity: Li-Po 4500 mAh, non-removable
Charging: Fast charging 30W, 70% in 30 min (advertised)
