OnePlus Nord 2T 5G product details

The OnePlus Nord 2T is a 5G phone and the successor to the popular Nord 2. There are not very many differences. And that's why we're going to take a look here at exactly what changes there are and whether they're worth switching to

Differences from Nord 2

The main differences between this Nord 2T 5G and the Nord 2 5G are the newer processor and faster charging. Whether that's enough to make you want to switch is up to you, we think it's somewhat minimal. But if you are coming from a previous Nord or just want a new mobile then it is a completely different story. Then OnePlus offers a very complete phone with excellent software for a nice price. How about a spacious yet manageable 6.43-inch display? OnePlus applies a colorful AMOLED panel with HDR10+ support and smooth 90Hz display. OnePlus fails to specify how bright the screen is, which leads us to suspect that it's not very bright. Independent tests come out to between 650 and 750 nits. Extremely bright isn't that but it's not below average either.

OnePlus Nord 2T 5G colors overview

Proven 50MP camera

On the back, OnePlus seems to have used 2 cameras but appearances can be deceiving. Despite the two large black cutouts there are 3 cameras is. The top hole is for the 50MP main camera. This features a Sony IMX766 sensor with an f/1.8 lens and optical image stabilization (OIS). In other words; a great performing camera both in light and dark with plenty of sharpness and detail. Other cameras include an 8MP ultra-wide-angle and a 2MP mono lens. The latter only shoots images in black and white. The advantage of a separate monolens is that it is usually sharper. But because of the low resolution, we recommend you shoot pictures with the main camera and then apply a black and white filter. The HDR video mode is useful for capturing backlit videos

  • 50+8+2MP camera with 120° wide angle and mono lens, 4K video and HDR video
  • 32MP selfie camera with portrait function and timelapse function
  • MediaTek Dimensity 1300-processor for great performance
  • 8/128 or 12/256GB of RAM/storage memory (not expandable)
  • 4500mAh battery with 80W wired fast charging (SuperVOOC charger included)
  • Support for fast 4G and blazing fast 5G internet
  • Underpinned by OxygenOS 12.1 based on Android 12

Faster than fast charging

OnePlus has placed a MediaTek Dimensity 1300 inside the Nord 2T. This processor not only handles the 5G signals, but also launches apps quickly and makes the device responsive. Versions are available with 8 and 12GB of RAM. Here the rule applies; the more the smoother the device will feel during intensive use. Storage memory ranges from 128 to 256GB and is not expandable. The battery of 4500mAh is split into two parts and therefore OnePlus is capable of higher charging speeds. As much as 80W. For a mid-range phone, that's above average speed. OnePlus promises that 15 minutes of charging is already enough for a whole day of use. What the device is still not is waterproof. There is no official IP rating, so you have to be careful around water.
