OnePlus has launched its OnePlus Nord 2T in Europe as a successor to its 2021 Nord 2 smartphone. The smartphone was first introduced in China and Nepal earlier this month and has reached Europe after a couple of weeks. The 2021 OnePlus Nord 2 was infamous for its battery explosions in India, and hopefully, the issues are resolved in this iteration. The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G gets an updated design, a more powerful Dimensity processor, and improved fast charging support.
OnePlus Nord 2T 5G: Features, Specifications
The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G is more of an evolution than a revolution. It gets a similar front design with a left-aligned punch-hole camera cutout on the display as the outgoing model. The rear design is almost identical with the exception of the camera island, which is larger. The Nord 2T retains the 6.43-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate.
The major change in the Nord 2T comes in the form of a new MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset, which is expected to offer improved performance compared to the MediaTek 1200 SoC of the Nord 2. It is equipped with up to 12GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.

In the camera department, it comes with a triple camera setup comprising a 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor with f/1.8 aperture and OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation). It is accompanied by an 8MP Sony IMX355 ultrawide shooter with an f/2.2 aperture and a 2MP monochrome sensor with an f/2.4 aperture. Selfie duties are handled by the 32MP camera at the front.
The Nord 2T 5G comes with an in-display sensor and face unlocking feature for enhanced biometrics. Thankfully, OnePlus’ signature alert slider and stereo speakers are retained in this iteration. Connectivity features include 4G VoLTE, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth v5.2, GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C port, among others. It is still powered by a 4,500mAh battery under its hood but gets an uprated 80W SuperVOOC fast charging support. The handset runs on OxygenOS 12 based on Android 12 out of the box.
