OnePlus Nord 2T announcement is a strange firstborn on Dimensity 1300

The OnePlus Nord 2T was unveiled in the UK - one of the brand's strangest smartphones in recent

time:starting with the mysterious approach to the launch, when sales started long before the presentation, and ending with the asymmetrical design of the cameras and the level of improvements relative to the Nord 2. To be precise, there are only two technical improvements here, and one of them is extremely arbitrary: the Dimensity 1300 came to replace the Dimensity 1200 (there are no architectural and frequency differences between the chips), and the 65W charging was overclocked to 80W.

Otherwise, Nord 2T is still the same Nord 2,apparently showing poor sales due to its explosive reputation and stale in warehouses. The old body and chassis (which explains such a strange camera design), 6.43″ AMOLED screen (90 Hz), 50-megapixel main camera with OIS, 8-megapixel wide and 2-megapixel cap, as well as a 4500 mAh battery and even the volume switch on the end.

Even funnier, OnePlus bringsthe volume mode switch on the end as a feature that fans asked for (against the background of the recent OnePlus 10R). Another difference was the software base: out of the box, the newcomer runs OxygenOS 12.1 with Android 12 at the core. The price tags, fortunately, have not changed: €399 and €499 for the 8/128 and 12/256 GB versions. OnePlus Nord 2T will go on sale May 24th.
