OnePlus has launched its latest 5G phone, the Nord CE, at its Summer Launch Event on June 10th. The CE phone, which stands for Core Edition, aims to simplify the North experience to core aspects while keeping prices low.
The phone joins its North N10 predecessor, the N100 budget, and the North midrange flagship.
As part of the “Core” experience, the Nord CE offers a 6.43in 90Hz AMOLED display, a 64Mp guided triple camera configuration, and a 4500mAh battery all wrapped up in a slim 7.9mm frame. Meanwhile, a fast charging Warp Charge 30T Plus promises to charge the device up to 70% in 30 minutes. The CE is powered by the Snapdragon 750G processor – the same one that powers the £ 399 Samsung Galaxy A52, although the CE has a starting price that is £ 100 cheaper.
