OnePlus has today announced the release of the company’s newest smartphone, the OnePlus Nord 2.
The Chinese manufacturer says its latest smartphone delivers a “comprehensive upgrade from the first Nord, from camera and performance to charging and design”.
The OnePlus Nord 2 is powered by the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI processor and provides 65 per cent faster CPU performance and 125 per cent GPU performance when compared to the original OnePlus Nord.
It has a 6.43-inch fluid AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and new features such as AI Colour Boost and AI Resolution Boost, which improve colours and upscales resolution from popular apps.
The smartphone also offers a 50MP AI Sony IMX766 camera set-up and an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 32MP selfie camera.
Like the flagship OnePlus 9 series, the Nord 2 features a 4,500mAh battery that allows for 65W Warp Charging technology and is able to charge the device from 0 to 100 per cent in less than 35 minutes.
The Nord 2 is pre-installed with OxygenOS 11.3 and is available in Blue Haze and Gray Sierra.
Customers who pre-order from OnePlus.com can also benefit from 10 per cent off a Nord 2 phone case and screen protector as well as 50 per cent off of a pair of OnePlus Buds Z. Meanwhile, anyone who purchases OnePlus Nord 2 from OnePlus.com will also get access to a free Stadia Premiere Edition, consisting of a Stadia Controller and a Google Chromecast Ultra.
The 8GB/128GB variant of the device will be available from O2, Three, Amazon, John Lewis, and OnePlus.com from July 28 for £399.
The 12GB/256GB variant of the device will be available from Amazon, John Lewis, and OnePlus.com from July 28 for £469.
