    Congratulations @Susie Liu on new product. Well my question isn't about the partnership but anyways
    Well what's new with Nord 2 is it finally going to be structurally stronger than original one? said:

    Here's one about partnership? Does this Mean Oneplus settled for Mediatek rather than Snapdragon?

    Congratulations with the announcement of the very first, MediaTek powered OnePlus Nord. I'm interested in the following, since @Pete said this about the OnePlus x OPPO integration:
    "Since Oppo phones have been powered before by a MediaTek SoC, has this made the choice of using MediaTek in OnePlus phones any easier?"

    One doesn’t rule out the other, so the answer is yes. (Basically the options you gave were sort of the same:rolleyes:)

    edit: oh, didn’t read any further, someone beat me to it.:(

    You know, honestly I don't even care what they do and what they don't. I lost hope anyway with it's past few decisions. But I like how they keep trying out different things rather doing the same thing each year. They might have chosen Mediatek for a reason but it's no good if the price goes really high. Imo they should have gone with Mediatek on the CE version.

    Good to notice that Snapdragon's monopoly is getting disturbed.
    I Hope Nord 2 matches/exceeds expectations from average users.
    All the best Team Oneplus.

    @Susie Liu @Pete I hope u have added frosted glass back, dual stereo speakers, headphone jack & 12mp Ultrawide instead of 8mp Ultrawide that clicks soft photos in comparison with main camera.

    The systematic slow moving away from companies that may asked to stop collaborating with OnePlus/Oppo/OnePlop by their governing superpowers. But will they actually say that?

    The Mediatek chipsets had a pretty bad reputation in the past when it came to performance and heat management.
    How is the Nord team going to tackle those two obstacles? Especially the overheating and thermal throttling issues.

    As nice as the Nord 2 sounds, I'll be sticking with my original Nord for now. I normally don't upgrade my phones for at least a couple of years.
    I have no problems with the use of a MediaTek chipset, I just wish they would get rid of the useless 2mp Macro camera.

    Can we unlock bootloader? Mediatek devices are very infamous in 3rd party rom development community due to no official unlock resources
