OnePlus Nord 2 5G vs OnePlus Nord CE 5G vs OnePlus Nord

After launching for the first time in 2020, the OnePlus Nord reached a total of six devices. Among these, two of them are upper-midrange phones with amazing specifications and prices, and now the company even launched a flagship killer under the same lineup. If you have been pondering on which Nord phone should you buy to get the most complete phone at the most affordable price, then you are in the right place. This is a comparison between the specifications of the new OnePlus Nord 2 5G, the affordable Nord CE 5G, and the original OnePlus Nord.

OnePlus Nord 2 vs OnePlus Nord CE vs OnePlus Nord

Design

The most beautiful and modern design belongs to the OnePlus Nord 2 5G: the camera module is designed better and it has the same color as the rest of the body of the phone. Further, the handset has a glass back protected by Gorilla Glass 5 which improves the build quality. However, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G is a thinner and lighter phone, so it still has its charm. Unfortunately, it has the same design as the original Nord which is a bit outdated in 2021.

Display

There are not many differences between the displays of these three phones: they are almost the same. These handsets are equipped with a Fluid AMOLED panel sporting the HDR10+ certification, a Full HD+ resolution, a refresh rate of 90 Hz, and a diagonal of 6.43 inches (6.44 inches for the original Nord, but with a dual punch hole). They also come with a fast and accurate in-display fingerprint reader for authentication.

Specs & Software

Unlike its more affordable siblings which come with midrange-class hardware, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G is a flagship killer. It is powered by the Mediatek Dimensity 1200 chipset paired with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage (Nord CE 5G and Nord have UFS 2.1). The Nord CE 5G and the original Nord have different chipsets (Snapdragon 750G and 765G), but the performances are more or less the same. Note that OnePlus Nord 2 5G comes with a more recent version of the OxygenOS released after the integration with ColorOS by OPPO. Further, note that the original Nord has Android 10 out of the box instead of Android 11.

Camera

On the rear side, OnePlus Nord 2 5G has the most advanced camera department which includes the 50 MP Sony IMX766 main sensor, an 8 MP ultrawide camera, and a 2 MP monochromatic lens. If we talk about selfies, the vanilla Nord is superior with its dual camera including a 32 MP main sensor and an 8 MP ultrawide sensor.

Battery

OnePlus Nord 2 5G and Nord CE 5G are stronger battery phones thanks to their bigger battery capacity: 4500 mAh. The Nord 2 5G also wins the fast charging comparison with a power of 65W.

Price

The OnePlus Nord 2 5G has a starting price of €399 ($470), the Nord CE 5G carries a €299 ($352) listing price in its base variant, and Nord was launched in 2020 with a starting price of €399, but now you can find it around €300 (these are the EU prices but they vary depending on the market). There is no way for Nord and Nord CE 5G to compete with the Nord 2 5G (the winner of this comparison), but the Core Edition has a very high value for money due to its very affordable price.
