OnePlus Nord 2T 5G won’t run on Qualcomm chip
OnePlus has announced a processor that will power its latest budget phone, the Nord 2T 5G, that will apparently deliver “flagship-level” performance.
OnePlus has announced that its latest Nord 2T 5G mid-range smartphone will not be powered by a Qualcomm chip, but will instead be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1300.
In a statement announcing this spec, OnePlus stated, “The MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset will bring improved flagship-level performance to the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G while being more power efficient than the previous generation chipset. It also features improved connectivity and improved thermal performance.”
MediaTek Dimensity 1300 is equipped with an octa-core processor, including four ARM Cortex-A78, one of which runs at 3 GHz and the other three at 2.6 GHz, and four ARM Cortex-A55 with a maximum clock speed of 2 GHz. There is also a 9-core ARM Mali-G77 GPU on board.
This is just the latest detail we received from OnePlus ahead of the device’s inevitable launch. Previously, on Oneplus official forumAske Kjær, brand PR manager for Europe, stated, “The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G is packed to the brim with flagship features like the 80W SuperVOOC charging you know and love from the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G, so you’re ready for life. Fast – with flagship killer speed.”
To commemorate the launch of this new product – along with the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G and OnePlus Nord Buds headphones – the brand is hosting a “Speed Games” event on his official YouTube channel. Beginning May 19 at 4:00 pm CET, the OnePlus community will take on social media influencers “in a series of fun challenges, each designed to highlight a particular feature of the OnePlus Nord series.”
We have yet to know any additional specs for the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G beyond its processing and charging capabilities; but as the name suggests, this will likely be considered a minor upgrade from last year’s OnePlus Nord 2 5G compared to last year. We were impressed with this phone, giving it 4 out of 5 stars, with particular praise for its gaming performance, main and selfie cameras, stereo speakers, and overall good value for money it offers. However, in order for this sequel to improve on the weaknesses of its predecessor, we’d like to see improvements made to battery life as the Nord 2 5G barely made it through one day of heavy use.
