OnePlus has updated its mid-range smartphone lineup and announced the new Nord CE (Core Edition). Some of the device’s specs are slightly trimmed compared to last year’s Nord, but there are also some improvements.
Improvements in OnePlus Nord CE include the increased sensor resolution of the main camera module (64 megapixels versus 48 megapixels). The rear camera includes three modules instead of four on last year’s Nord. In addition to the main one, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module (lens field of view 119 degrees) and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor are also offered. But the capabilities of the front camera are reduced compared to its predecessor. The novelty is equipped with only a single 16-megapixel sensor for self-portraits, and an additional ultra-wide-angle module is put under the knife.
Another improvement is the use of the Snapdragon 750G processor instead of last year’s Snapdragon 765G. Despite the decrease in the number in the chip model name, the manufacturer claims that the CPU performance has increased by 20% and the graphics performance by 10%. Users can choose from configurations with 6, 8, and 12 GB of RAM. The storage capacity can be 128 or 256 GB. However, not all configuration options will be available in some regions.
Finally, the battery has undergone an upgrade. The battery capacity in the OnePlus Nord CE model has been increased to 4500 mAh. The previous version of the Nord used a 4115mAh battery. The new product implements the Warp Charge 30T Plus fast charging technology, which is 30 minutes allows you to replenish the battery’s energy reserve from 0 to 70%.
Externally, the new Nord CE is very similar to its predecessor. However, at the bottom of the smartphone, you can find a headphone jack, which was not on last year’s model. The device is equipped with a 6.43-inch OLED display with Full HD + resolution and support for an image refresh rate of 90 Hz. The device is available in black, blue, and silver body colors.
The new OnePlus Nord CE smartphone will be available for pre-order in the UK from 14 June, with actual sales starting on 21 June. For this market, the price will be £ 299 (€ 329) for the 8/128 GB memory configuration, while the 12/256 GB version is priced at £ 369 (€ 399). A 6/128 GB version will also be available in Europe for € 299.
