OnePlus has finally announced the new OnePlus Nord 2 5G after much gossip. In addition, it has also presented new earbuds, namely OnePlus Buds Pro with a stylish design. They look like AirPods, but thanks to the addition of a chrome part, they look more luxurious and less like a toothbrush.
OnePlus Buds Pro
The OnePlus Buds Pro are the most innovative audio gadget from OnePlus ever, according to the smartphone maker. It is the third time that OnePlus comes with earplugs and it seems to rub against Apple in design. We no longer see red, which is the color of OnePlus: the logo that adorns the white case is silver.
In terms of technology, the OnePlus Buds Pro contain noise cancellation. However, it is ‘smart adaptive’, which means that it adapts to where you are, according to OnePlus. Ambient noise can be filtered out up to 40 decibels. The earbuds have three microphones to pick up that sound and Dolby Atmos support. What stands out most, however, is the battery life: if you occasionally put the earbuds in the charged case, you can listen to audio for up to 38 hours. If you don’t have the case with you, and the earbuds are fully charged, they can last up to 5 hours with noise cancellation and 8 hours without. Warp Charge has also been added, so that you can listen for 10 hours in 10 minutes of charging.
OnePlus North 2 5G
OnePlus Nord 2 5G has also been announced. The budget phone from OnePlus costs 399 euros and has four cameras: one on the front and three on the back. The device has a 50-megapixel sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens and a macro camera. You can take selfies with a 32-megapixel camera on the front. The screen is a 6.43 inch AMOLED and the display can refresh at 90 Hertz. That’s not a huge amount, but it’s more than many current phones that are still at 60 Hertz.
You can fully charge your phone within half an hour via Warp Charge and that 4,500 mAh battery will last at least a day, depending on your usage. Inside, you’ll find a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 AI processor with 5G support. OnePlus Nord 2 is now out in the colors blue and gray. There is a variant with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage and with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
OnePlus Buds Pro cost 149 euros and come in black and white. They can now be pre-ordered on the OnePlus website and will be available in stores from August 25.
