Despite several leaks, the OnePlus Nord 2T is still not official – that will change on May 19 (Thursday). In the run-up to the event the company is confirming one new detail about the phone per day.
Yesterday, it confirmed support for 80W SuperVOOC charging, which can pump a day’s worth of power into the battery in just 15 minutes. The battery capacity wasn’t mentioned, but the leaks have it pegged at 4,500 mAh.
Anyway, today’s announcement confirms the use of the Dimensity 1300 chipset. Considering that the chip was unveiled a month ago and no one has called dibs yet, the Nord 2T will be the first to use it.
The 1300 is a refresh of the 1200. It is still a 6nm chip (from TSMC’s foundries), it has four Cortex-A78 cores (one at 3.0GHz, three at 2.6GHz), four A55 cores (2.0GHz) and a Mali-G77 MC9 GPU.
Two more reveals remain. Tomorrow’s will detail the “flagship-level camera”. According to rumors, the setup will feature a main cam using a 50MP IMX766 sensor (with OIS), an 8MP ultra wide, plus a 2MP module on the back, along with a 32MP IMX615 on the front. The final reveal on the 19th, just before the event, will be about the screen (rumored to be 6.43” FHD+ 90Hz).
