OnePlus launched the Nord N20 5G last April. More than a year later, the successor is in the starting blocks – the OnePlus Nord N30 5G is here. A Snapdragon 695 chipset in combination with 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM is still responsible for the drive. There is also 128 GB of UFS 2.2 storage on board, which can be expanded by up to 1 TB via a microSD card. The Nord N30 5G runs Android 13-based OxygenOS 13.1 out of the box, and there will only be one major Android update to come. However, OnePlus has promised to deliver security updates for three years.
The OnePlus Nord N30 5G is based on a 6.72 inch LCD display with FullHD+ resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate and a central punch hole for the 16 megapixel selfie camera. On the back is a 108 megapixel main camera with triple lossless digital zoom. In addition, OnePlus installs two 2 megapixel sensors for macro shots and depth data.
Power is supplied by a 5,000 mAh battery that charges with 67 watt SuperVOOC. In 110V areas, including North America, only a maximum of 50 watts arrive in the OnePlus cell phone. Other highlights of the OnePlus Nord N30 5G include a 3.5 mm headphone jack, USB-C, stereo speakers and a fingerprint sensor built into the side. The smartphone is 8.3 mm thick and weighs 195 g. If all this sounds suspiciously familiar, the Nord N30 is a renamed Nord CE 3 Lite for the American market.
Accordingly, the color options Pastel Lime and Chromatic Gray are already known from the twin model. The OnePlus Nord N30 5G costs $299.99 (€280/INR 24,780) in the US and is already available for pre-order on the OnePlus US official website. Shipping begins June 8th. Pre-orderers will get a free pair of OnePlus Nord Buds 2 TWS earbuds worth $59 (€55/INR 4,875).
