OnePlus secretly launches cheap device in shadow of the 12

The OnePlus 12 is the brand’s new flagship and has been available for a week. Now comes another phone, but much cheaper.

The OnePlus 12 is a smartphone with quite impressive specs. There will also be a cheaper 12R model if you want to make some more concessions.

The company is coming out with an even much cheaper device just after launch week. Not in the 12-line, by the way, but in the well-known Nord category. This is best known for its value for money.

This is the new OnePlus Nord N30 SE 5G

To be precise, OnePlus has secretly launched the Nord N30 SE 5G. This is remarkable, since the company normally proudly presents its new smartphones. Perhaps OnePlus is not doing this because it might get in the way of the launch of the 12.

The OnePlus Nord N30 SE 5G has a 7.72-inch FHD+ display with a 20:9 ratio. Under the hood is the MediaTek Dimensity 6020 SoC processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of memory.

The device itself runs Oxygen OS 13.1.1, which in turn is based on Android 13. On the back is a 50 MP main camera and a 2 MP depth camera. On the front, the device has an 8 MP camera. What is noticeable is that the familiar OnePlus slider is missing from the side.

With the battery, you can go a long way, as this is a 5,000 mAh one. It supports fast charging up to 33W. This will charge more than half your battery in half an hour.

Price and availability

Although OnePlus has just launched the new device, no price has been announced yet. In addition, it remains to be seen whether the device will come to the Netherlands. Also, the company has not yet announced the price. Nevertheless, we can already make a small estimate.

The Nord N20 SE cost $199, but was not launched in the Netherlands. Nevertheless, you can still purchase it through the official OnePlus Store on AliExpress. Perhaps you can do the same with its successor.
