OnePlus Nord 2T 5G: OnePlus Flagship Essentials, Upgraded
May 19, 2022: Today, global technology brand OnePlus launched the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G, the newest addition to the company’s more affordable smartphone line – OnePlus Nord. The OnePlus Nord 2T takes the beloved flagship essentials of the OnePlus Nord 2 and upgrades them in big ways to bring an elevated experience to users. The OnePlus Nord 2T packs the same flagship 80W SUPERVOOC fast charging that debuted on the OnePlus 10 Pro, a faster, holistically upgraded MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset, an AI-enhanced flagship camera from the OnePlus 10R, along with OxygenOS 12.1 to deliver a faster and smoother experience at a great price point.
“In line with our commitment to making the OnePlus experience more accessible, the OnePlus Nord 2T combines excellent hardware and software to push the limits of a great everyday smartphone,” said Pete Lau, Founder of OnePlus. “With top-tier flagship hardware and burdenless software – including 80W SUPERVOOC, the MediaTek Dimensity 1300, the Sony IMX766 image sensor with OIS, along with OxygenOS 12.1 – the OnePlus Nord 2T feels more premium than it should at a great price.”
Upgraded flagship essentials
The OnePlus Nord 2T comes with the same flagship 80W SUPERVOOC fast charging as the OnePlus 10 Pro, which powers the device’s massive 4,500 mAh dual-cell battery from 1-100% in 27 minutes. It takes just 15 minutes to provide a day’s power – that’s 120% faster than the original OnePlus Nord.
The OnePlus Nord 2T is TÜV Rheinland certified for safe fast charging and usage, meaning it is certified by a globally recognized body to deliver safe fast charging. Moreover, the OnePlus Nord 2T has 9 built-in temperature sensors to monitor the charging temperature in real time, making sure the phone stays safe and cool during the charging process. The OnePlus Nord 2T also has an independent integrated circuit (IC), which can manage the charging system to ensure charging safety and stability.
The OnePlus Nord 2T stacks a powerful camera unit on its rear comprised of the same flagship 50 MP Sony IMX766 sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS) as the OnePlus 10R, a 120° ultra-wide camera, and a 2 MP mono lens. The 50 MP Sony IMX766 was handpicked for its 1/1.56 inch large sensor size, 1.0 μm pixel size, and its support for OIS that, combined its ability to let in 56% more light, allow the OnePlus Nord 2T to capture brighter and more detailed photos in dimly lit environments. The OnePlus Nord 2T also features an 8 MP ultra-wide camera with a 120° field of view, allowing it to capture more of every scene.
The OnePlus Nord 2T supports Nightscape mode, which can shoot photos with high levels of detail and natural colors in low light. Empowered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset, AI computational photography on the OnePlus Nord 2T is taken to another level, delivering the best quality low-light images in the history of OnePlus Nord.
Harnessing the power of Sony’s DOL-HDR image processing technology, the OnePlus Nord 2T’s AI Highlight Video mode improves the brightness, color, and contrast of video clips when shooting in backlit environments, uneven lighting, or at nighttime. The AI Highlight Video mode also reduces short and overexposure in video to deliver more balanced, natural-looking footage. Thanks to the improved computational power of the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset, the OnePlus Nord 2T can record high frame rate slow-motion video at up to 960 fps – allowing you to capture quick movements with great levels of detail.
On the front, the OnePlus Nord 2T is fitted with the same 32 MP front-facing sensor as the OnePlus 10 Pro. The selfie camera supports electronic image stabilization (EIS) and an AI-deblurring algorithm, which improves the clarity and sharpness of photos and videos.
Fast and smooth
The OnePlus Nord 2T is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset that offers an octa-core CPU with speeds up to 3 GHz. The MediaTek Dimensity 1300 is manufactured using a 6 nm process, which provides better gaming performance, more efficient power consumption, and better temperature control with HyperEngine 5.0. The MediaTek Dimensity 1300 is accompanied by up to 12 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage to ensure the delivery of OnePlus’ signature fast and smooth experience. Additionally, the OnePlus Nord 2T supports Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Hybrid 2.0 technology, that not only allows for more consistent data speeds when connected to Wi-Fi networks, but also lowers audio latency when the phone is connected to both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices simultaneously.
The OnePlus Nord 2T sports a large 6.43 inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate, which delivers a fast and smooth scrolling experience. With HDR10+ support, users can watch videos from popular streaming applications such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video with richer and more vivid colors. The dual ambient light sensors on the front and back of the OnePlus Nord 2T automatically adjust the brightness of its display in an accurate and subtle way to best suit your environment for a better, more comfortable visual experience.
The OnePlus Nord 2T comes pre-installed with OxygenOS 12.1 based on Android™ 12, allowing for better multitasking, improved power consumption, and smoother gallery viewing. The OnePlus Nord 2T will receive 2 major Android updates and 3 years of security updates to ensure the smoothest and most secure experience.
Coming in at just 8.2 mm in thickness and 190 g in weight, the OnePlus Nord 2T feels comfortable in hand. The OnePlus Nord 2T comes in two stunning colorways – Gray Shadow and Jade Fog. Gray Shadow has a dark sandstone finish with an anti-glare treatment that offers a textured, sanded look with micro-beads that increase the colorway’s resistance to sweat and fingerprints and deliver an aesthetic that is reminiscent of the OnePlus One. The Jade Fog variant has a glossy jade green finish and misty undertones, offering a flashy and elegant aesthetic.
