OnePlus today officially announces a trio of more affordable devices for Europe: the OnePlus Nord 2T, the Nord CE 2 Lite and the Nord Buds true wireless headphones. The Nord 2T starts at £369 (€399) and is best considered a bloated version of last year’s Nord 2. Meanwhile, the Nord CE 2 Lite is a scaled-down model of the Nord CE 2 and starts at £279 (€299). Finally, there are the Nord Buds, which will retail for £49 (€49). The latter two were launched in India last month but will go on sale in the UK on May 24.
You can check out my full OnePlus Nord 2T review here, but its specs won’t surprise anyone familiar with its predecessor. It uses an upgraded MediaTek chip and has faster 80W fast charging, but other hardware like its display and cameras are broadly unchanged from last year. It’s available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for £369 (€399), or there’s an upgraded version with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for £469 (€499).
Next up is the Nord CE 2 Lite. At £279 (€299), it’s a bit cheaper than the £299 (€349) Nord CE 2 from earlier this year. This price gets you a device powered by a mid-range Snapdragon 695 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It has a 5,000mAh battery that can be quickly charged at up to 33W, triple rear cameras driven by a 64-megapixel main sensor, and a 6.59-inch 1080p display with 120 refresh rate. Hz, which is surprisingly high for an affordable handset like this. (However, unlike the Nord 2T, this is an LCD screen rather than OLED).
Finally, there are the £49 (€49) Nord Buds, which sit at the affordable end of OnePlus’ true wireless earbud range. They support Dolby Atmos, offer seven hours of playback per charge (up to 30 hours with the charging case), and also have an IP55 rating for dust and water resistance. The Nord Buds are also slated for release in the US, where they’ll cost $40 and be available in mid-June.
