OnePlus Nord 2: How’s the Buzz?
OnePlus Nord 2 is one of those smartphones which have been awaited for quite a while and still there are no signs of this smartphone getting launched in the American market? What’s the reason to this?
Well, if you look for it online, you could see the listings of the device on online stores such as Ali Express and Banggod etc. at the cost of just $410 for 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. However, while there has been no official announcement by OnePlus about launching this smartphone in the US market, this would go down as an un-launched product still.
However, while people have been waiting for the device so much now and there is a lot of buzz around it, it would definitely be made official pretty soon.
What’s Special About OnePlus Nord 2?
OnePlus Nord 2 is perhaps one of its kind as of now because this smartphone comes with a MediaTek chipset for the first time in the history of the brand. Yes, that’s absolutely true. If you pick all the devices, right from the first-ever OnePlus to the devices launched before OnePlus Nord 2, you would see that all of them were powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets and while there have been rumors of a Mediatek chipset being used in the previous devices as well, the end result was something different.
Even OnePlus Nord 2 had several rumors surrounding it, that said it would use a MediaTek chipset and later the brand proved it as well. OnePlus Nord 2 is now officially the first device with a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset.
Just a little recap of what MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset actually is: This is the most powerful MediaTek chipset as of now with a 6nm chipset size and octa-core structure. The chipset has a primary clock speed reaching up to 3GHz, which is the first time a Mediatek chipset has achieved this feat.
Besides, this MediaTek chipset is equipped with some really amazing features such as display refresh rate support of up to 168Hz and powerful third generation of Mediatek HyperEngine gaming technology which is really helpful for the gamers. And perhaps this is the major reason why OnePlus Nord 2 contains this MediaTek chipset. The smartphone has been officially launched and has seen its first few sales in countries like India and other Asian countries. Besides, the global version of the smartphone is also available in several online stores.
How Does it Fare?
There was a lot of hullabaloo about the device and most were from people who were not ready to accept the transition from Snapdragon to MediaTek in the device. Many people spread rumors that there was something wrong between Snapdragon and OnePlus and this is why OnePlus might be breaking up with the chipset brand.
However, OnePlus proved that good things should always be welcomed and this is why MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset has been welcomed by the buyers with open arms.
Many people are still skeptical about this device and the reason is again the same — the presence of a MediaTek chipset. However, these are the people who do not already know about the open resource structure revealed by MediaTek for its 5G chipset. Yes, if you love flashing custom ROMs or doing any sort of architectural changes in the smartphone with respect to the chipset, this is absolutely possible now.
So OnePlus Nord 2 with a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset is a really good device and contains all the features that would make you wish for it, especially at such a low cost. Are you already planning to buy this device for your needs?
