OnePlus Nord 2T 5G was launched in India on Friday. The new OnePlus phone comes as a slight upgrade to the OnePlus Nord 2 5G that debuted last year. Just like the Nord 2 5G, the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G carries a 90Hz AMOLED display, triple rear cameras, and a 4,500mAh battery. The new phone is, however, powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 1300 SoC and carries 80W fast charging. These are two significant upgrades over the Nord 2 5G that had the Dimensity 1200-AI SoC and 65W charging. The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G will compete against the likes of the Motorola Edge 30, iQoo Neo 6, Poco F4 5G, Mi 11X, and the Samsung Galaxy A33 5G.
