OnePlus, in a short span of time, has managed to establish its ‘Nord’ line of smartphones in India pretty impressively, giving rivals a run for their money. The firm already has Nord CE 2 Lite, Nord CE 2 and the Nord CE in the market. However, it is not yet done (at least for this year) since it is now set to bring the Nord 2T to India. This will come as the second smartphone in the range after the Nord 2, which came in India back in July 2021. The Nord 2T, naturally, brings some major improvements over last year’s model.
Since the smartphone is already out in the UK and other European markets, the specifications are not a secret anymore. However, the company might make minor tweaks for the Indian audience. What, however, remains the biggest secret is the price tag of the device.
So, if you are eager to see how Oneplus positions its Nord 2T smartphone in the market, here are all the details on its launch, where and how to get the updates, expected price, sale date and the key features.

OnePlus Nord 2T: Expected Sale Date
OnePlus Nord 2T is expected to go on sale for the masses starting July 5, four days after the launch. The sale will begin from 12 PM onwards via various platforms including Amazon India, the OnePlus India website and OnePlus stores across India. The listing page is also live on the Amazon India website.
OnePlus Nord 2T: Expected Specifications and Features
As mentioned above, OnePlus has already launched its OnePlus Nord 2T smartphone in the UK and other European regions. This means the specifications and features are not a secret anymore. This, however, makes things easier for potential buyers as they can decide better if they want this device or a different offering. But this doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about some key features.
80W SUPERVOOC fast charging
This is one of the key highlights of the Nord 2T. The company has been promoting the 80W SuperVooc fast charging tech not just on social media but as the first important feature on the main website and e-commerce listing. And rightfully so, this feature is rare in handsets for now. The company claims that this tech can charge the 4,500mAh battery in mere 15 minutes, which is really handy for someone who is always on the go.
Flagship 50MP Sony IMX766 camera
Besides the battery prowess, OnePlus Nord 2T is also being touted for its camera shooting capabilities. The smartphone will be featuring Sony’s flagship IMX766 camera sensor. The 50MP main camera at the back is claimed to deliver some of the best HDR and low light shots in the segment. It also has Optical Image Stabilisation – which we talked about at length recently.
MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset
Powering the OnePlus Nord 2T is the MediaTek Dimensity 1300, which also happens to be one of the newest and most powerful mobile chipsets for smartphones, competing with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. MediaTek’s new SoC will definitely give a performance boost over last year’s Nord 2’s Dimensity 1200-AI. For those curious, OnePlus seems to be sticking with Qualcomm Snapdragon for its flagship 10 series handsets.
Other Specifications and Features
The Nord 2T will feature a 6.43-inch Full HD+ fluid AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. You will also get an optical in-display fingerprint scanner under the screen, which will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass layer. The octa-core MediaTek processor comes along with the Mali G77 GPU and is paired with up to 12GB LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB UFS3.1 storage. On the software side, the Nord 2T gets OxygenOS 12, based on Android 12.
Besides the main 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor, you get two more sensors at the back consisting of an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2MP mono camera. The device offers a 32MP selfie camera as well. The phone runs on the Android 12 operating system with the company’s latest OxygenOS on top of it.
