The North family of OnePlus already has one more member: the Chinese company has just officially presented the OnePlus Nord 2, or what amounts to the same, the second generation of the original North. This new mid-range 5G model combines some features of the brand’s flagship product – the OnePlus 9 – with more basic ones to bring the price below 500 euros.
Among these legacy features we have, for example, a 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging and the 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor in the rear camera. For the processor, as expected, OnePlus customized the Dimensity 1200 announced by MediaTek earlier this year.
