Two new devices for OnePlus, which thus expands its catalog. We are talking about the Nord 25G smartphone, which revolutionizes the concept of a mobile phone for everyday use, and the true wireless Buds Pro earphones, with intelligent noise cancellation.

The new OnePlus Nord 2 5G

OnePlus Nord 2 is the new smartphone of the Chinese company. This features a 50MP AI triple camera with Sony IMX766 sensor and optical image stabilization (OIS). It also comes with Warp Charge 65 and the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI flagship processor. The latter, coupled with OnePlus’ OxygenOS software, offers users a fast, fluid and versatile experience.

The new Group Shots 2.0 feature on the front camera can detect up to five faces at a time and optimize aspects from skin tone to facial details. In addition, the OnePlus Nord 2 is equipped with AI Video Enhancement which improves the brightness, color and contrast of video recordings in real time. The battery is a 4500 mAh double cell. Thanks to the Warp Charge 65 charging technology, it charges from 0-100% in less than 35 minutes.

Fast, fluid and with an attractive design

The smartphone is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI processor, which provides 65% faster CPU performance and 125% GPU performance compared to the performance of the OnePlus Nord released in July 2020. The 6.43-inch AMOLED fluid display has a refresh rate of 90 Hz. In addition, new features such as AI Color Boost and AI Resolution Boost improve the colors and resolution of the most common apps.

Other features include two 5G SIM card slots and 5G download speeds of up to 2.95 Gbps. The device also features a powerful pair of stereo speakers for an immersive audio experience and Haptics 2.0 to provide smoother and more sensitive tactile feedback. Nord 2 5G is available in Europe in two fantastic colors: Blue Haze and Gray Sierra, both of which are durable, fingerprint resistant and beautifully crafted.

OnePlus Buds Pro: OnePlus’ true wireless earphones

Official presentation also for the OnePlus Buds Pro earphones. These are the first launched by the brand and provide adaptive noise cancellation (ANC). The buds will thus offer improved call quality, extended battery performance and customizable sound to create a truly immersive, premium audio experience.

True wireless earbuds come with OnePlus Audio ID. This ensures a carefully calibrated sound profile to suit the user’s specific sound preferences. Paired with two large 11mm dynamic drivers and Dolby Atmos support, the Buds Pro bring music to life with powerful highs, heart-pounding lows and crystal-clear vocals.

Ten hours of battery life with a 10-minute charge

In addition to great sound, the Buds Pro free the user of any worries by offering up to 38 hours of battery life along with the case on full charge and 10 hours on a short 10 minute charge. The earbuds also support OnePlus’ Warp Charge fast charging, as well as third-party Qi-certified wireless chargers – so you’ll always stay connected with your music. In addition to an ergonomic design that makes them light to wear but snug when moving, the true wireless earbuds also offer Bluetooth 5.2 support and latency up to 94 ms with Pro Gaming mode activated.
