It seems that OnePlus has planned something big for 2021. It recently released the Nord CE 5G and now the OnePlus Nord 2 is in line with some significant upgrades for a reasonable cost. The company has an uncommon habit of manufacturing very good flagship smartphones — The onePlus 9 Pro was one such product.
OnePlus introduced its Nord series to undercut the expensive devices in the market by Samsung, its Chinese rivals—or maybe Apple. Previously launched, Nord was the first device in the series, attempting to claim the “Flagship Killer” badge, but the company has tilted its brand-new Nord 2 “Flagship Killer” willingly.
This exclusive Flagship Killer launched on July 22, after the huge success of its predecessor, OnePlus CE 5G, which was sold for $365. Though the company has taken the budget segment so far, the Nord series firmly sticks to its “Performance For Fair Price” policy.

Here are five reasons why the OnePlus Nord 2 is a premium phone with a “Flagship” badge.
There is no doubt in saying that OnePlus Nord 2 has everything that you could ask for in this price range. With its freakishly good camera, MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor, and warp speed charging, it has already won the race. Here is why OnePlus Nord 2 is a nice pick against its rivals.
An AI-Power Brain As The Company Advertises
OnePlus typically uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon, even in the previously launched OnePlus Nord 5G, it had a Snapdragon 750G processor. Call it a weird habit or what, OnePlus decided to go with MediaTek’s Dimensity 1200-AI chipset for Nord 2, which promises delivering excellent speed unlike any other Android Phone–not even Samsung’s Galaxy S20 series.
Android 11.3 On Board
As usual, the Nord 2 runs on Android 11, over which OnePlus has coated its Oxygen software. OnePlus Nord CE 5G also had the same, which we admired against Stock Android. Owing to its impressive features, the OnePlusians are enjoying a smooth performance, which is hard to expect at this price tag.
Wrap Charging–Charge Like A Pro
The Nord 2 lined up with the OnePlus 9 series in terms of battery capacity. It supports the same 65-watt fast charging, which means it will take just about 30-minutes to charge your phone from empty to full.
Packed with a 4,500mAh battery, it gives you a full-day backup for hardcore use. Moreover, battery life is not a major issue, with 65-watt wrap charging which keeps the disruptions at bay. In fact, what brings OnePlus Nord 2 your way is that the 65-watt charger comes in-box, unlike Apple.
Vibrant, Colorful, Smooth Yet Sharp Display
The Nord 2 boasts a range of impressive features, similar to its predecessor Nord CE 5G. It measures 6.43-inches with a resolution of 2,400×1,080 pixels, which is enough to give you a sharp and pleasant viewing experience.
Play games, watch videos, or more, OnePlus promises to deliver a top-notch viewing experience with a 90Hz refresh rate–a step below 120Hz of the OnePlus 9 series.
Decent Photography Gears For Your Shots
It gets a shot or performance-enhancing technology with a 50 MP AI-based triple camera system, sports a Sony IMX766 sensor, optical image stabilization, and plenty of AI add-ons to capture brighter, sharper, and smooth low-light shots. An 8MP super-wide lens and a 2MP monochrome sensor are a bonus to your photographic skills.
Choose from Gray Sierra or Blue Haze, a stylish, feature-packed phone is available for $404 and $587. Whichever variant you choose, there are always a ton of features for you.
