The latest addition to the OnePlus Nord family, the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G, is everything you desire in a new smartphone and more! The new model takes the beloved flagship essentials of the OnePlus Nord 2 – like superfast charging, MediaTek Dimensity processor, Sony image system and Oxygen OS – and upgrades each of these in big ways to bring to you an elevated smartphone usage experience.

“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 with top-tier flagship hardware and burden less 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," said Pete Lau, Founder of OnePlus.

At a time when the Indian smartphone market is flooded with new launches, read on to know what makes the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G so special.

Amazing photos

The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G 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 by OnePlus 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 per cent more light, allows the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G to capture brighter and more detailed photos even in dimly lit environments. It also features an 8 MP ultra-wide camera with a 120° field of view to capture more of every scene.

Nightscape Mode

The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G supports Nightscape mode, which can shoot photos with high levels of detail and natural colours in low light. The smartphone is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset and AI computational photography which takes night photography to another level, delivering the best quality low-light images in the history of OnePlus Nord.

Enthralling videos

The improved computational power of the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset enables the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G to record high frame rate slow-motion video at up to 960 fps, thereby allowing you to capture quick movements with great levels of detail. The new phone harnesses the full potential of Sony’s DOL-HDR image processing technology, as AI Highlight Video mode which improves the brightness, colour and contrast of video clips when shooting in backlit environments, uneven lighting, or at night time. The AI Highlight Video mode also reduces short and overexposure in video to deliver more balanced, natural-looking footage that will make you say WOW!

Super processing

The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset that allows you to multitask on your smartphone with ease as you open different apps. It offers an octa-core CPU with speeds up to 3 GHz. The chipset is manufactured using a 6 nm process, which provides you with a better gaming performance, more efficient power consumption, and better temperature control, powered by HyperEngine 5.0.

OxygenOS power

The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G comes pre-installed with OxygenOS 12.1 based on Android™ 12, allowing for better multitasking, improved power consumption, and smoother gallery viewing. Further, the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset is augmented 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.

Next level connectivity

The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G gives connectivity a new definition as it supports the Wi-Fi/ Bluetooth Hybrid 2.0 technology, which allows for more consistent data speeds when connected to Wi-Fi networks and also lowers audio latency when the phone is connected to both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices simultaneously.

High-powered battery

The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G 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 percent in 27 minutes. It takes just 15 minutes to provide a day’s power – that’s 120 percent faster than the original OnePlus Nord.

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 5G 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.
