Has OnePlus just outdone itself with its latest launch?- Technology News, Firstpost

OnePlus’ ‘flagship-killer’, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G, has been launched in India at a starting price of Rs 27,999. Although the company introduced the Nord range just last year, the latest entrant in the family makes the original Nord look old. OnePlus has introduced a couple of firsts with the Nord 2 5G, including the fact that it’s the company’s first MediaTek-powered smartphone. The Nord 2 5G is also the first smartphone to run on the new merged OxygenOS and ColorOS platform named OxygenOS 11.3. Other major highlights of the smartphone include its 4,500 mAh battery that supports 65 W fast charging and a 50 MP triple rear camera setup.

The OnePlus Nord 2 5G makes a compelling case for itself when compared to other Nord models. The smartphone comes with a flagship MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset, up to 12 GB RAM, up to 256 GB of storage, a triple rear camera setup that houses a 50 MP IMX766 sensor, and a 32 MP selfie camera. It also comes with a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 65 W fast charging.

In my opinion, the new smartphone also impresses on the design front. It features a camera bump that looks quite similar to the one on the OnePlus 9.

While the final verdict will only come after a comprehensive hands-on review, it’s clear that with the OnePlus Nord 2 5G, the company has bettered an already appealing package.
