Finally, OnePlus has unveiled its budget monster: the Nord 2 5G. The phone is a definite upgrade over the original Nord. The list goes on. Are you satisfied with Nord 2? When will it reach Nepal? Check out the OnePlus Nord 2’s full specs and expected price in Nepal.
Design, Display and Performance
An immediate comparison with OnePlus 9 series is evident. The back looks almost the same as its more expensive brothers, with the exception of a few minor differences. A rectangular camera housing on the back and a dot-style notch on the front distinguish this phone from the competition. Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protects the front and back of the camera. The frame, however, is made of plastic. The phone is available in three colors. Blue Haze is an iconic “Nord” color that is glossy. Green Wood is made of PU leather and has a matte finish glass (polyurethane leather or plastic leather). The display is quietly similar to One Plus Nord. It comes with Fluid AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels at 90Hz. The phone’s display is one of the less-talked-about features because it isn’t all that special.
The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 5G chip-set powers the phone. In terms of numbers, we receive nearly double the Antutu score (693439) as the original Nord (373362). It offers AI-enhanced features and upgrades that are superior to those of several competitors. It’s an octa-core (13.0 GHz Cortex-A78, 32.6 GHz Cortex-A78, and 42.0 GHz Cortex-A55) CPU created on a 6nm process for tech enthusiasts. It may not be the greatest out there, but it is unquestionably cheaper than its competition.
It contains 6GB/8GB/12GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB/256GB faster UFS3.1 storage on the inside. Keep in mind that the Nord 2 lacks a storage slot that can be expanded.
The phone’s cameras are probably the most talked-about feature. And why not, with the latest Sony IMX766 sensor and OIS capability for the main 50MP sensor? It has an 8MP Ultra-wide sensor with EIS and a 2MP Mono-lens with a 119.7° FOV. It has done away with the macro-lens, which was often seen as a gimmick. The back camera can only take 4K films at 30 frames per second, not 60. Dual view video, for example, allows you to capture videos with both the front and rear cameras at the same time.
They’ve ditched the OnePlus Nord’s ultra-wide sensor for the front-facing camera, which is a shame. It now has a single Sony IMX615 sensor with a resolution of 32 megapixels and an aperture of f/2.45. It can only capture videos at a resolution of 1080p at 30 frames per second.

The phone is powered by Android 11 with OxygenOS 11.3 on top of it. It’s simple and customizable, which is a hallmark of the operating system. A larger battery with a capacity of 4500mAh is available. To improve charging time, it is divided into two halves, each with a capacity of 2250mAh. In comparison to the 30W on the Nord 1, the Nord 2 enables Warp Charge 65W to swiftly charge your phone. There is no support for a 3.5mm headphone jack. With Haptics 2.0, the phone’s haptics have been improved. This indicates that you will receive an X-axis linear motor for this activity. The phone, however, does not have an official IP rating. The phone’s fingerprint scanner is located beneath the display. Unlike Nord 1, Nord 2 has two speakers, one on the bottom and the other through the earpiece.
Price in Nepal
The base (6GB+128GB) edition of the OnePlus Nord 2 is expected to cost roughly NPR. 48,000 in Nepal.
