OnePlus announces the Nord CE 2 5G. CE stands for Core Edition, and it will replace last year’s Nord CE 5G with an updated design and a bump in specs.
The Nord CE 2 5G comes with a slim and sleek design with raised rear cameras and a 90Hz 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED display. Inside, a 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G chip powers the phone with 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB expandable storage.
At the back, you have triple cameras with a 64MP main, an 8MP ultra-wide, and a 2MP macro sensor. While in front, a 16MP selfie camera hides behind a punch-hole cutout.
You also get a 4500mAh battery with a 65W Warp Charge fast charging via USB-C, an in-display fingerprint scanner, Wi-Fi 6, mono speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Unfortunately, there’s no alert slider here.
The Nord Ce 2 5G comes in Bahama Blue and Gray Mirror colorways. The 6GB+128GB variant will go for INR 23,999 (roughly PHP 16,500~ or USD 320~), while the 8GB+128GB for INR 24,999 (around PHP 17,100~ or USD 334~).
