The next senior mid-range model from OnePlus adopts camera And charging flagship devices to make his many competitors sweat
In the days when the Nord CE is sweeping considerable interest in Israel with a price war that has succeeded in lowering the initial price tag for importers parallel to the threshold of less than NIS 1,200 - OnePlus Global is moving to focus its efforts on the next hot mid-range model, which will be the successor for the first Nord to hit stores exactly one year later.
The OnePlus Nord 2 features a screen very similar to its predecessor (at least from the data on paper), with a diagonal size of 6.43 inches and Super technology AMOLED At a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz and a resolution of 2,400 × 1,080 pixels - but provides a big leap in photography with the use of Sony's IMX766 sensor measuring 1 / 1.56 inches and a maximum resolution of 50 megapixels, including optical stabilization, which formed the basis for a wide-angle camera in models OnePlus 9 andOnePlus 9 Pro and gets here his chance to prove himself as a base for the main photography unit in the mid-range model.
The new model will be offered with fast UFS 3.1 storage of 128GB or 256GB, without expansion option, with dynamic memory of 8GB and 12GB respectively, stereo speakers, Android 11 system with OxygenOS 11.3 interface above it (one that should display first fruits from the union between OnePlus To Oppo that took place recently) and a promise of software support in the next two major versions from Google and in three years of monthly security updates, 6-channel Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 5.2 wireless connectivity, dual-channel GPS receiver, chip NFC, Fingerprint scanner Built-in display, 32-megapixel selfie camera and more.
The other highlight, beyond the main photo sensor in the triangular array on the back of the device, is the battery inside, or rather its support for fast 65 watt wired charging (with a supporting charger included in the package) - allowing the full 4,500mAh capacity to be charged in half an hour or less. Similar to or even better than what some of the flagship devices for 2021 offer, some of which cost twice as much as the Nord 2.
As we already knew before the announcement, the Nord 2 is making a transition from Qualcomm camp to Mediatek camp with chip A fresh and unique processing called Dimensity 1200-AI, which is based on a production process of 6 nm and adds a significant share of performance compared to the chipSnapdragon 765G in all aspects - which may not provide (and perhaps rightly so) consumers who have been burned in the past from series in early chips and much less successful than the Taiwanese developer.
The Nord 2 will be offered in delicate black and blue-green in European countries at an official recommended price starting at 400 euros, including taxes, which translates to approximately 1,550 shekels - and it will also arrive in Israel starting next month, with recommended prices identical to those of the generation -Nord First: NIS 1,800 for the base edition with volume storage Of 128GB and LPDDR4X memory of 8GB and NIS 2,000 for an advanced edition with 256GB of storage And 12GB of memory Dynamic, which appears to be a more affordable offer compared to an official European price of 500 euros (which translates to about 1,940 shekels).
Flashing, or too small a change compared to the original model? Let's talk about it with everyone in the comments.
