    Dear Nord Family,

    Nearly one year ago, we gave you a great everyday phone that was pretty much everything you could ask for — OnePlus Nord. The original Nord featured a seamless blend of the signature OnePlus Fast and Smooth experience and flagship-quality features at a pretty great price.

    Following the success of Nord, we saw an opportunity to provide you with more of everything you want in an affordable smartphone – more great features, faster hardware, better cameras, a fluid user experience, and an even higher standard of OnePlus quality.

    The new OnePlus Nord 2 5G is the next stop on our journey to bring you the best technology at an accessible price point. And it’s even faster, smoother, and better than you’d expect.

    For Nord 2, exceeding your expectations starts with the phone’s 50 MP AI Triple Camera. The main camera has a huge Sony IMX766 sensor that absorbs 56% more light for vivid and colorful photos and videos, especially in low-light environments. We also added optical image stabilization (OIS) to help make the content you shoot smooth and blur-free.

    Along with a stellar camera system, we wanted our latest phone to have an intelligent brain. So, we collaborated with MediaTek to develop the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI chipset for the OnePlus Nord 2. The “AI” part means the CPU provides Nord 2 with comprehensive AI-enhanced software performance, including optimized photo and video shooting and high-refresh gaming.

    By now, you’re probably wondering where OnePlus Nord 2 gets the power to run top-notch cameras and AI CPUs. The answer is a big 4500 mAh dual cell battery. Splitting the battery in half also allowed us to implement Warp Charge 65, which charges Nord 2 up to one day of battery power (70%) in just 15 minutes. That’s twice as fast as Warp Charge 30T for OnePlus Nord!

    And to make sure you get the notoriously smooth experience expected of all Nord phones, every new OnePlus Nord 2 comes with OxygenOS 11.3 pre-installed. This latest version of our popular operating system comes with old favorites like Dark Mode and an AOD display, along with fun new stuff like our Games app that supports live in-game chats with Discord.

    On top of next-level software, we also gave OnePlus Nord 2 a 6.43 inch 90 Hz Fluid AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution that swims with hi-def imagery. Your fingers will feel like they’re skating as you swipe on this HDR10+ certified high refresh display.

    In addition, we upgraded our haptics to Haptics 2.0 for a more sensitive and tactile experience and added dual stereo speakers that provide crisp, clear, and loud sound. And for Nord fans worried about bad connections, we put in dual 5G SIM card slots and Wi-Fi 6 technology that help provide stable connectivity and fast downloads wherever you go.

    And don’t worry — we wouldn’t give Nord 2 all these fancy gadgets without making the phone look pretty, too. OnePlus Nord 2 comes in three striking new colorways: Blue Haze, Gray Sierra, and the India-exclusive Green Woods. Along with being classy, the 3D AG glass for Blue Haze and Gray Sierra is angled to feel slimmer and smoother in hand, while Blue Haze and Green Woods are both fingerprint and smudge resistant. Overall, the OnePlus Nord 2 features a design that is smooth, functional, and fantastic to look at.

    So now you have the full breakdown, we hope you’re excited to get your hands on the latest generation of Fast and Smooth affordable phones that gives flagships a run for their money: OnePlus Nord 2 5G.

    Thanks for your support over the past year, and we hope you’ll stick with us as we continue to expand the Nord Universe to greater heights.

    Never Settle.

    Going to have to catch up on the launch later but from what I saw , which was in the same humour as Devolver Games, it looks fantastic and uniquely entertaining.

    Congratulations on launching the next Nord! I'm sure it will be a huge success, it's a real shame the Green Woods color option is an Indian only one (but I'm happy for the Indian community!)
