- The latest addition to the Nord range is OnePlus Nord CE 5G, where CE stands for Core Edition.
- At 7.9mm, the Nord CE is the slimmest smartphone from OnePlus since the launch of the OnePlus 6T.
- It comes with the headphone jack, a feature that was missing on the original Nord smartphone launched last year.
OnePlus Nord CE 5G has been launched for the Indian market alongside the company's new OnePlus TV U1S range, which includes three new models. OnePlus revealed that the original Nord achieved the highest opening sale day volume in the company's history. And, with the OnePlus Nord CE 5G, the company would want to break that record as well. The new Nord CE 5G is now the company's most affordable 5G smartphone offering in the country.
With the OnePlus Nord CE 5G, the company has streamlined the design to appeal to the audience it caters to. It has been launched in Blue Void, Charcoal Ink, and Silver Grey colours. Taking feedback from the consumers, OnePlus has brought back the headphone jack on the Nord CE, which was missing on the original Nord. However, the new Nord CE 5G missed out on the signature alert slider on the right panel which has been part of OnePlus phones ever since the OnePlus One.
At 7.9mm, the Nord CE is among the slimmest smartphones by the company and weighs just 170 grams. The company has made massive improvements to the design, battery, camera, and performance fronts. Let's dive into the specs of the OnePlus Nord CE 5G.
