OnePlus has announced its latest special edition of the OnePlus Nord 2 x Pac-Man smartphone, but we still don’t know what it looks like.
The phone is the latest development from OnePlus, created specifically for this special edition. The manufacturer has previously partnered with companies such as Mclaren and Cyberpunk 2077.
While the other two collaborations made sense (McLaren is synonymous with speed, while Cyberpunk was, well, appropriate when the phone came out), the Nord 2 x Pac-Man phone seems a little unexpected. OnePlus solves this problem in its forum post…
“Why did OnePlus decide to join forces with PAC-MAN?” Writes OnePlus.
“Well, the answer is pretty simple. We wanted to deliver the same incredible specs and features you love about Nord 2 in an updated package that takes entertainment to the next level. In other words, the OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition is fast. Smooth; smooth. And even more fun. ”
The back cover of the Nord 2 x Pac-Man features a glow-in-the-dark dual film, which OnePlus has achieved by applying phosphorescent ink to the inner film.
OnePlus has also redesigned the OxygenOS operating system, adding Pac-Man references, and bringing Pac-Man games, tasks, and hidden content into the software, woven into the user interface.
All of this, of course, according to OnePlus, as the company has yet to provide images of the device and let’s judge for ourselves. However, the company promises to share more information on the forum and on its Instagram account in the coming days.
The Nord 2 x Pac-Man includes 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage and is priced at £ 499 / € 529 – that’s £ 100 more than the standard Nord 2 5G, a phone that was released in July this year as available alternatives to the flagship OnePlus. nine.
Reviewer Andrew Williams called the Nord 2 “one of the best phones to consider if you want a high-performance Android but think the idea of spending £ 800 or more is ridiculous,” with the biggest drawback being its short battery. life.
The Pac-Man Edition lacks this accessibility a bit, but there is one way to get a phone for free if you’re in Europe or India.
OnePlus is giving away a small number of OnePlus Nord 2 x Pac-Man and OnePlus Buds Z phones to anyone looking to try their hand at playing Pac-Man over the next few days.
