Who in today’s time doesn’t love a smartphone that is affordable and has premium features? Everyone does, Right! And OnePlus has made it obvious by now that no matter what budget you have in mind for a new phone, there will be a OnePlus smartphone available in that price range to save the day. Keeping this same thing into consideration, OnePlus has launched its brand new phone OnePlus Nord CE 5G.
This new OnePlus smartphone differs significantly from the original OnePlus Nord, which was released in July 2020. The CE in this Nord’s name stands for Core Edition, and the concept is apparent. This is a budget-friendly phone that concentrates on the core requirements. So, let’s dig deep into the specs and features of the phone.
Design And Display
The Nord CE has a 6.43-inch 90Hz AMOLED display for responsive and smooth gaming and video-watching experience. HDR10+ is also available to enhance the viewing experience of the HDR content played on the phone.
It is one of the most intriguing designs that OnePlus has released in a long time. After the OnePlus 6T, the Nord CE 5G is the thinnest OnePlus phone. It has a thickness of 7.9mm and weighs 170g. The Nord CE also includes a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is a welcome addition. Also, along with the headphone jack, there is a USB-C port on the bottom of the device.
Charcoal Ink, Silver Ray, and Blue Void are the three colour options available for Nord CE. The OnePlus Nord CE 5G front and back are made up of glass; not gorilla glass but a similar material, while the rim is made of plastic. The phone has a matte texture that resists fingerprints.

Specifications And Performance
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G 5G chipset powers the Nord CE, which guarantees a 20% CPU and 10% GPU boost over the other previous models. This is because it has an Adreno 619 GPU and a Kryo 570 CPU. It also has a much advanced AI Engine that claims to give consumers a very seamless and smooth experience, ranging from improved gaming to better voice-chat. The processor comes with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage.
OxygenOS (OOS) 11, OnePlus’ quickest and most responsive software to date, comes pre-installed on the Nord CE. Dark Mode, Zen Mode, and an updated always-on display (AOD) are all included in OxygenOS 11. In addition, OOS 11 has been designed in such a way that it can be used single-handed.
The OnePlus Nord CE 5G is equipped with a big 4,500mAh battery and upgraded Warp Charge 30T Plus charging technology. According to the company’s claims, the OnePlus Nord CE can charge from 0 to 70% in about half an hour. In order to preserve optimal battery health when charging overnight, the OnePlus Nord CE adjusts to limit the amount of time spent at 100% charge.
