It is unexpected that we were able to obtain a OnePlus device after such a long period of time. The Nord 2 has arrived for us to put through its paces and report back to you on our findings. A big shoutout to Digital Walker for sending this unit to us.

On-hand is the 8GB + 128GB color Blue Haze. This one is powered by a 3.0GHz MediaTek Dimensity 1200 AI octa-core processor.

The cameras at the back packs a 50MP(Sony IMX766, f/1.9, OIS, PDAF+CAF) + 8-megapixel (ultra-wide, f/2.2) + 2-megapixel (f/2.4, mono) rear cameras, dual-tone flash.

While the selfie camera has 32MP (Sony IMX615, f/2.4)

What keeps it running is a 4,500mAh non-removable battery that comes with the 65W Warp Charge wall charger.


OnePlus is well-known for the quality of its smartphone packaging. The OnePlus Nord 2 is not an exception to this rule. Despite the fact that it is billed as a mid-range device, it comes in high-end packaging.

You get that signature high-quality USB Type C cable in red, the 65W Warp Charge wall charger, a free high-quality transparent case, reading materials, and the Nord 2.

First Impressions

Just like the competition, the OnePlus Nord 2 has all the security features. But the smartphone is performing more accurately and flawlessly. I speak about the in-display and even the face unlock feature of the fingerprint scanner. Both features are flawless.

Aimed at helping you decide that the P22k price point is a well-deserved tag price. The smartphone has a premium appearance. In addition, on top of the power button, the dedicated silent button is placed. That’s a nice feature when you want to quickly turn your phone into silent mode.

To warp this initial impression blog post, I’d like to say that the OnePlus Nord 2 looks expensive than it is.
