You are currently viewing OnePlus Nord CE 5G: the new aspiring mid-range fluency champion arrives with up to 12GB

The first OnePlus Nord came with the purpose of being more affordable than the now front-line OnePlus, and it came with the OnePlus Nord N10 and N100. But the Nord range is expanding and it does so with the new OnePlus Nord CE 5G, which, as its name anticipates, comes to expand that mid-range showcase with 5G connectivity.

It is a smartphone with a 90 Hz AMOLED screen and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 750G processor. An interesting combination considering that the starting price is fair touching 300 euros.

Inheriting the design lines, but with greater lightness

The logo runs freely in the center of the back, clearing any doubt that it is a OnePlus mobile. In addition, the blue tone and the shape and location of the rear module are very reminiscent of the first OnePlus Nord, seeing in this chaos also options in black and silver.

This rear has a slight curvature at the edges and corners, but the screen is flat, presenting a hole for the front camera in the top left-hand corner. It has a gloss finish in the colors silver and black, being matte in the case of blue and promising that it is especially resistant to fingerprints, so it will be necessary to see it.

This flat panel is a panel 6.43-inch AMOLED, which is almost identical diagonally to that of the Nord but in this case the maximum refresh rate is increased to 90 Hz. In the absence of knowing the exact resolution, for now we know that it supports HDR10 +.

The OnePlus Nord CE 5G integrates a mini audio jack despite being quite thin: 7.9 mm. In addition, despite having a more than decent battery at the capacity level, they have managed to make it 170 grams of weight, below its predecessors, in the line of the small ASUS ZenFone 8.

Up to 12GB RAM and 5G per flag

As we have said in the introduction, this time we have had the Snapdragon 750G 5G, which makes it clearer that it is a Nord of the top line and not like the N10 and N100. Although this is also made clear by the memories, because we are talking about models with up to 12 GB of RAM, which is quite striking in a mid-range.

As for the storage memory, there are versions of 128 and 256 GB (to be confirmed if it has expansion for microSD, for now it is not indicated). Another characteristic feature that is usually a positive point is the software itself, since despite being a customization layer on Android, OxygenOS 11 usually works fluently, so we hope that in this case the precedents will be maintained.

At the level of autonomy, the new Nord CE comes with a battery of 4.500 mAh, higher capacity than we saw in the first Nord (4,115 mAh). It includes the fast charging brand of the house, Warp Charge 30T Plus, with which they promise a charge from 0 to 70% in 30 minutes.

As to the cameras, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G has a 64 megapixel sensor in the main camera and, although the brand has not yet said all the information, we know that it integrates a wide-angle lens and the sensor that corresponds to the front camera, thus:

  • Main camera: 64 megapixel sensor with lens with an aperture f / 1.79.
  • Ultra wide angle lens with 119 degree field of view.
  • Front camera: 16 megapixel sensor
