OnePlus Nord CE has finally gone official after days of being into rumor mills. The OnePlus Nord CE (Core Edition) is a budget addition to the company’s Nord line of phones. It is a stripped-down version of the original Nord, which means it lacks some of the features introduced on the Nord so to keep the pricing low.
The OnePlus Nord CE 5G has a completely plastic build, unlike the original Nord that came with just a plastic frame. The OnePlus Nord CE 5G is the company’s first phone without the alert slider in India. The phone features triple rear cameras, all aligned in a vertical strip-like fashion in a separate module. On the front, the phone carries a hole punch on the top left corner of the display. It has an in-display fingerprint scanner as well. The phone comes preloaded with Nightscape, UltraShot HDR, Portrait, Panorama, Pro mode, and Smart Scene recognition.
The OnePlus Nord CE 5G features a 30W Warp Charge 30T Plus charger that claims to charge the phone to 70% in mere 30 minutes.
