OnePlus Nord 2T

The latest offering by OnePlus is Nord 2T, which is a 5G-capable smartphone that is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1300 6nm chipset. The device was unveiled in Europe earlier today and it is expected to go on sale on May 24th at select retail stores in Europe and in the U.K.

The Nord 2T runs Oxygen OS 12.1 that is based on Android 12 out-of-the-box. It has a dedicated dual SIM slot, although it lacks a microSD slot to expand its limited internal storage. Speaking of the storage, there are 128GB and 256GB storage onboard, depending on the model. These are paired with 8GB RAM and 12GB RAM, respectively.

The RAM Expansion feature under the phone settings let users add virtual RAM to expand the physical RAM. At the front is a 6.43-inch Fluid AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution and 20:9 aspect ratio, protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The display refreshes at 90Hz and also supports HDR10+.

Sitting at the back of the OnePlus Nord 2T are 50MP (f/1.9) main, 8MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide, and 2MP (f/2.2) monochrome cameras for photography, while a 32MP (f/2.4) selfie camera can be found at the front above the display. The main camera has optical image stabilization (OIS), and it can also record 4K video.

Biometric security is handled by an in-display fingerprint sensor, although face unlock option under security settings can be use to unlock the phone as well. Other connectivity that are available on the smartphone apart from 5G are Wi-Fi 802.11ax (dual band), Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, NFC, and USB-C port. It does not have 3.5mm audio jack.

The smartphone measures 159.1×73.2×8.2mm and weigh 190 grams, mainly because it has a glass back (also Gorilla Glass 5). It is powered by a 4500mAh battery. The battery can be fast-charge using the 80W charger that is provided in the retail box. You'll be able to pick one in Jade Fog and Gray Shadow colors.
