Spearheads of the Nord CE 5G
What does OnePlus mean by focusing on the core of the Nord series? With the Nord CE 5G, the company focuses on design, 5G support, memory and storage, speed and durability. In terms of design, the phone is very similar to the more expensive OnePlus phones. The housing is made of glass, but still very thin at 7.9 mm and light with a weight of 170 grams. OnePlus has opted for the Snapdragon 750G processor because it also makes 5G possible for cheaper phones, without sacrificing speed. The Nord CE 5G also has sufficient working and storage memory. You can choose from three variants.
Compared to the OnePlus Nord, this phone has a slightly larger battery than the OnePlus Nord, and the fast charger has also become slightly better. The phone charges from 0% to 70% in 30 minutes. In addition, the 48 MP main camera of the Nord has been upgraded to a 64 MP one, the same as that of the OnePlus Nord N10 5G. The other two cameras are the same as those of the OnePlus Nord.
OnePlus has also added a 3.5mm headphone jack and left out the well-known alert slider and the double selfie camera of the OnePlus Nord. According to OnePlus, the alert slider is important for the community but less important for a larger target group.
