OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus Nord 2 5G and the OnePlus Buds Pro, as an extension of the OnePlus Nord and the OnePlus TWS portfolio, respectively.
OnePlus Nord 2 5G
The OnePlus Nord 2 combines flagship-level hardware, including a 50 MP AI triple camera with a Sony IMX766 sensor and optical image stabilization (OIS), Warp Charge 65, and the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI processor, along with OnePlus’s signature OxygenOS software to offer users a fast, smooth, and versatile experience.
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G integrates powerful camera hardware with AI-assisted software enhancements, courtesy of the new MediaTek chipset, to deliver an outstanding and versatile photography experience. The Nord 2 brings major improvements in nighttime photography with OIS and the main 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor, which is capable of capturing 56% more light than the Sony IMX586 from the first Nord. With Nightscape Ultra, an enhanced version of OnePlus’s Nightscape Mode, users are able to shoot better and brighter photos even in conditions as dim as 1 lux.
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G also features an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 119.7-degree field of view along with a 32MP selfie camera with a Sony IMX615 sensor, the highest resolution front camera on a OnePlus device. The new Group Shots 2.0 feature on the front camera can detect up to five faces at a time, and optimizes aspects from skin tone to facial details. In addition, Nord 2 is equipped with AI Video Enhancement which improves the brightness, color, and contrast of video recordings in real-time. For stills, the Nord 2 comes with AI Photo Enhancement, a feature which recognizes up to 22 different photography scenarios and automatically adjusts the settings for improved results.
Like the flagship OnePlus 9 series, the Nord 2 features a 4500mAh dual cell battery. With its Warp Charge 65 charging technology, it charges from 0-100% in less than 35 minutes. The Nord 2 also adapts to reduce the time spent at 100% battery to maintain good battery health while charging overnight.
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI processor. Built on TSMC’s 6nm process, the standard Dimensity 1200 boasts an ARM A78 architecture, providing 65% faster CPU performance and 125% GPU performance when compared to the performance on the OnePlus Nord released in July 2020. OnePlus has worked closely with MediaTek to enhance the AI-based features of the processor. To highlight the new AI capabilities of the chipset, OnePlus and MediaTek have chosen the name Dimensity 1200-AI, distinguishing it from the standard Dimensity 1200.
The Nord 2 also comes with a 6.43-inch fluid AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate. With new features such as AI Color Boost and AI Resolution Boost, which improve colors and upscales resolution from popular apps, the Nord 2 offers vivid and dynamic visual experiences.
The Nord 2 is pre-installed with OxygenOS 11.3, OnePlus’ fastest and most responsive software to date. OxygenOS 11 sports significant improvements such as Dark Mode, Zen Mode, comfortable single-handed operation, and various always on display (AOD) options, with additional personalization, gestures, and gaming-friendly customizations such as the new OnePlus Games App on OxygenOS 11.3.
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G comes in three stunning colorways – Blue Haze, Gray Sierra, and Green Woods – all of which are durable, fingerprint-resistant and beautifully crafted.
The Nord 2 sports additional enhancements to improve the overall experience, right down to the details. With two 5G SIM card slots and 5G download speeds up to 2.95 Gbps, the Nord 2 provides stable and reliable mobile internet support. The device also packs a rich pair of stereo-speakers for an immersive audio experience, and Haptics 2.0 to give smoother and more sensitive tactile feedback. Nord 2 will be supporting all the usable 5G bands with next to no limitations and depending on 5G availability in your area.
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G will receive two years of major Android updates and three years of security updates.

OnePlus Buds Pro
OnePlus officially unveiled its first smart adaptive noise cancellation (ANC) earbuds, the OnePlus Buds Pro. The new premium true wireless earbuds feature an industry-leading smart noise reduction system, superior call quality, extended battery performance, and a more personalized sound to create a truly immersive and premium audio experience.
The OnePlus Buds Pro feature a smart ANC system that intelligently drowns out unwanted sound frequencies in real time, such as environmental noise or chatter, adjusting the level of noise cancellation accordingly to keep users immersed and undistracted from their tunes. Each earbud features a three-mic setup that actively filters out noise levels of up to 40dB as needed in order to deliver a much more comfortable and tailored listening experience as opposed to conventional ANC systems with fixed levels of noise cancellation. Coupled with enhanced noise reduction algorithms and a mechanical design to reduce wind noise, the OnePlus Buds Pro ensure calls are always crystal clear even in loud environments.
The true wireless earbuds feature OnePlus Audio ID, a carefully calibrated sound profile that caters to user-specific sound sensitivities. Coupled with two large 11mm dynamic drivers and Dolby Atmos support, the OnePlus Buds Pro bring music to life with rich treble, heart-pounding bass, and crystal-clear vocals.
On top of amazing sound, the OnePlus Buds Pro also feature a worry-free battery life of up to 38 hours along with the charging case on a full charge and 10 hours with just a brief 10-minute charge. The earbuds also support OnePlus’ lightning-fast Warp Charge, as well as third party Qi-certified wireless chargers so users can stay connected with their music at all times. In addition to the ergonomic design that offers a light yet snug fit for carrying on the go, the true wireless earbuds also offer Bluetooth 5.2 support and latency as low as 94ms with Pro Gaming mode turned on.
OnePlus Buds Pro is available on Amazon.in, OnePlus.in, OnePlus Experience Centers and partner stores.
