OnePlus has just recently launched the new Nord 2T, the successor to the Nord 2 that was released in the middle of last year. It is officially available for purchase in Europe.
The OnePlus Nord 2T is not a significant upgrade as compared to its predecessor, and nearly all options and fundamental design elements have been maintained. The display on the OnePlus Nord 2T measures 6.43 inches and supports under-screen fingerprint scanning in addition to having a punch hole in the upper left corner of the display. Memory may be increased to either 8 or 12GB of LPDDR4X, and storage can be increased to either 128 or 256GB of UFS 3.1. The processor has been upgraded to the MediaTek Dimensity 1300.
It is still a twin battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh, so the battery capacity has not changed. On the other hand, the charging speed has been boosted to 80W, and the manufacturer claims that it can charge from 0 to 100 percent in just 30 minutes with this setting.

The OnePlus Nord 2T retains its three rear cameras, including a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor that is compatible with optical image stabilization (OIS), an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with a 120-degree field of view, and a 2-megapixel monochrome lens. The camera hardware has not been updated. Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) is included along with 32 megapixels in the selfie camera.
OxygenOS 12.1, which is based on Android 12, comes pre-installed on the OnePlus Nord 2T. This version of Android also receives two significant Android version upgrades over the course of three years, in addition to ongoing security updates. The price of the 8/128GB version in Europe is 399 euros, while the price of the 12/256GB version is 499 euros. There are two colors available: gray shadow and jade fog, and the official launch date is set for May 24.
Alongside the Nord 2T, OnePlus also introduced the Nord CE 2 Lite, which is positioned as an affordable entry-level option. In addition to having a 6.59-inch FHD+120Hz LCD screen, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 CPU, has 6GB of LPDDR4X memory, and has 128GB of storage space. A charging current of 33 watts is supported by the battery, which has a rated capacity of 5000 mAh.
The rear of the Nord CE 2 Lite contains three cameras: a main sensor with a resolution of 64 megapixels, a depth sensor with a resolution of 2 megapixels; and a macro lens with a resolution of 2 megapixels. The front-facing camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels.
Both the Nord 2T and the Nord CE 2 Lite come outfitted with the Android 12.1 operating system. This operating system is able to get two significant Android version upgrades as well as three years of regular security fixes. On the European market, the device will be offered for a price that starts at 299 euros. Both Black Dust and Blue Tide iterations are obtainable.
