OnePlus Nord CE 5G: The Core OnePlus Experience, For Less

Press Release 2021-06-09
A great everyday smartphone that’s a little more than you’d expect

Shenzhen, June 10, 2021: Today, global technology brand OnePlus revealed a new addition to the OnePlus Nord product line: OnePlus Nord CE 5G (Core Edition). The newest member of the Nord smartphone portfolio is built on the core aspects of the Nord experience, delivering powerful features at an even lighter price - all packed into a beautiful design.

Nord CE combines best-in-class hardware features, including a versatile 64 MP triple camera system, a 90 Hz fluid AMOLED display, a powerful Snapdragon 750G 5G processor, and improved Warp Charge 30T Plus, along with OnePlus’s signature fast and smooth OxygenOS 11, to deliver a fantastic everyday user experience.

“The OnePlus Nord CE 5G is the next step in our commitment to sharing great technology with the world,” said Pete Lau, Founder and CEO of OnePlus. “The Never Settle spirit drives us to provide a better experience relative to what's available in any price segment. Nord CE is the newest addition to the OnePlus Nord product line that delivers a great everyday experience while maintaining the OnePlus quality that users have come to love.”

Fast and Smooth Experience

OnePlus Nord CE 5G comes with a large 4,500mAh battery, but with improved Warp Charge 30T Plus charging technology, the battery still charges at the same speed – 0 to 70% in just half an hour. Like all OnePlus devices, Nord CE also adapts to reduce the time spent at 100% battery to maintain good battery health while charging overnight.

Nord CE is powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 750G 5G Mobile Platform which offers a 20% CPU and 10% GPU boost over its predecessor, thanks to the Kryo 570 CPU and Adreno 619 GPU. The advanced AI Engine also provides users with an incredibly smooth and intuitive experience, from enhanced gaming to improved voice-chat.

Nord CE comes pre-installed with OxygenOS 11, OnePlus’s fastest and most responsive software to date. OxygenOS 11 features significant improvements to beloved features like Dark Mode, Zen Mode, and a new always on display (AOD). In addition, OOS 11 has been optimized for single-handed operations, thanks to repositioned touch controls and a simple yet bold design.

Powerful Essentials

Nord CE sports a powerful triple rear camera setup with a 64 MP main camera with a large f/1.79 aperture that captures crisp, high-resolution images and next-level detail in bright lighting conditions, and a 119° ultra-wide angle lens for enhanced versatility. On the front, Nord CE features a 16 MP camera for capturing great selfies.

Like all OnePlus flagship models, Nord CE comes with Nightscape for a better low-light photography experience. This must-have feature for nighttime shooting takes up to eight pictures at varying exposures and effortlessly weaves them together to produce clearer, brighter, and more dramatic photos.

Nord CE also rocks a 6.43" 90Hz AMOLED display that makes everything incredibly smooth and responsive. HDR10+ offers vivid colors to ensure immersive and enjoyable viewing experience.

Everything Else Users Love About OnePlus

At 7.9mm in thickness and 170g in weight, Nord CE 5G is the slimmest OnePlus device since the OnePlus 6T. But cutting back doesn’t mean subtraction. Extra features have been added to Nord CE, like the 3.5mm headphone jack. Nord CE comes in three colorways: Charcoal Ink, Silver Ray, and Blue Void.  The latter features a fingerprint-resist matte finish which reveals a fresh nuance from every angle.

Like all OnePlus flagship devices, Nord CE will receive two years of software updates and three years of security updates to keep the phone smooth over time.
