Android version and market relevance

The company OnePlus in June 2021 officially announced its new smartphone OnePlus Nord CE 5G in the series of mobile devices OnePlus Nord. In our subjective opinion, this year one of the important parameters for smartphones has become support for 5G networks, and this new model has received such a characteristic. As well as many other smartphones with support for 5G networks in our catalog.

“Out of the box” on the new smartphone installed Android 11, which did not receive any version updates. And besides, it is important to note immediately that the model OnePlus Nord CE 5G supports two SIM cards (view all smartphones with 2 sim cards in the catalog).

Screen, body and battery

It is worth paying attention to good 6.43-inch capacitive Fluid AMOLED touchscreen smartphone OnePlus Nord CE 5G with display refresh rate 90 Hz. A real shoveler, which is great for watching videos, surfing the Internet and full-screen games. You will be very surprised at how much information is placed on one screen. But, unfortunately, with one hand you will not be comfortable with using a smartphone. In addition, OnePlus Nord CE 5G has very small frames around the screen (speaking in numbers, the screen occupies from 80% to 90% of the area of the entire front panel. And an almost invisible hole in the screen adds recognition to the smartphone and increases the screen area, but does not increase the physical size. The thickness of the case is 7.9 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 4 500 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in OnePlus Nord CE 5G. The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 64 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor. Why, for example, has multiple lenses in a smartphone camera become the absolute norm on the market today? Because with these smartphones you can take beautiful portraits with blurred backgrounds (this is called the Bokeh effect). And manufacturers have also learned to make software enhancements to photography based on the analysis of frames from each lens. It seems that this is exactly the case when it is better to see once than read about it a hundred times. Therefore, we advise you to take a few shots yourself with the camera of this smartphone.

The front camera has one module: 16 MP Wide. This is a very good selfie-camera, which will shoot high-quality photos, so you share them with your friends in social networks and not only. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

Smartphone received 8-core processor Snapdragon 750G 5G (8 nm). If you want to assess the speed of the smartphone and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. OnePlus Nord CE 5G received 6 GB of RAM, and there is another version of this smartphone with 12 GB of RAM.

And there are options with built-in memory. You can choose 128 GB or 256 GB. .

Price for OnePlus Nord CE 5G: buy or not to buy?

So this is OnePlus Nord CE 5G after the official announcement. This novelty hit the expensive segment of smartphones.

Buy OnePlus Nord CE 5G you can after the beginning of official sales, which start in  June 2021. And now the price from the manufacturer is known — it′s $440 without taxes and fees. The price-to-feature ratio of this smartphone is not bad, because there is is just a huge screen, and the camera is sooooo cool, and the frontcamera is also very cool.

11 June 2021

Announced OnePlus Nord CE 5G is the fifth model from OnePlus this year and the most affordable with a price tag of $440

The specs of the OnePlus Nord CE 5G are simpler than previous OnePlus models this year. But this model has support for 5G networks, a bright 6.43-inch Fluid AMOLED screen, a Snapdragon 750G 5G (8 nm) processor, and a triple main camera.

OnePlus Nord CE 5G is an update to last year’s OnePlus Nord smartphone

The OnePlus Nord CE 5G will be sold in two configurations in Europe: 8/128 GB for €329 and 12/256 GB for €399. Out of the box, the smartphone runs on Android 11, but the manufacturer will update this model for at least three years (two years — update to Android 12 and Android 13, and three years — release of security patches).

Competitors for OnePlus Nord CE 5G in the first half of 2021

Now let’s take a look at the competitors. If you look for competitors only by price and screen size, you will get a list of more than 15 models. But from so many variants, it is difficult to choose the right model. Therefore, we dived deep into the technical specifications to find similar smartphones.

And in the end, we found two similar models:

Both of these Xiaomi smartphones have a similar price (about $440), AMOLED screens (6.55 and 6.67 inches, respectively), Android 11, triple camera. But still, do you know which model is better in terms of characteristics? In our opinion, it is better to pay attention to the model Xiaomi Redmi K40 Pro, because it has the most new flagship processor Snapdragon 888 (5 nm). But the OnePlus Nord CE 5G unfortunately has the previous generation Snapdragon 750G 5G (8 nm) processor.

In the end, which one to choose — OnePlus or Xiaomi? You need to hold these two models in your hands. Be sure to look at the smartphone interface in detail, open different applications (camera, messages, calendar, settings). Thus, you will form your opinion about each smartphone and it will help you make the right choice.
