OnePlus has finally brought the affordable version of Nord to India, which was long-awaited. OnePlus Nord CE 4 redefines the mid-range smartphone landscape at an unbelievable price. The company promises to provide all the features of a premium smartphone at a beautiful cost, starting from just Rs 24,999.

Design and Build Quality

And there are two gorgeous colors that the Nord CE 4 comes in: Dark Chrome and Celadon Marble. The first one is presented in a classier way than ever, in a dull, shimmery gradient. In contrast, the latter—in a way, the Celadon Marble of the Oneplus 11—looks luxurious to be squeezed onto.

And it is not just the Nord CE 4 that comes with pleasing aesthetics; the internal structures of this device are also beefed up to give the device the potential to withstand accidental drops. The device also touts an IP54 rating to be splash and dustproof to survive even in the worst conditions.

Performance and Power Efficiency

Powering the OnePlus Nord CE 4 is an octa-core processor from Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 3, built on a brilliant 4nm process. That ensures unmatched multitasking and performance speeds, backed with 8GB of RAM. The CPU storage option combines 256 GB of onboard storage and lightning-fast UFS 3.1 speeds. Expandable further via a microSDXC card slot to 1 TB, it will be more than sufficient for the content creator or power user.

Battery and Charging Capabilities

The Nord CE 5G, humongous 5,500mAh battery, is one of the leading factors—a capacity, the largest ever seen in any OnePlus device. It brings the fastest 100W wired charging technology and boasts 100% charging in 29 minutes.

The intelligent charging optimizations will help save the device’s battery life, while the four-year health guarantee will ensure peace of mind for consumers who rely on their smartphones during the day.

Display and Multimedia Experience

It has a 6.74-inch 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display with HDR10+; hence, super-smooth, free-flowing visuals are filled with colors. 89.3% screen-to-body ratio impressively reduces all the distractions when reading. It has stereo speakers with Hi-Res 24-bit/192kHz audio that would excite the ear of the fan in the audio output. However, the Nord CE 4 does not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack—a compromised feature that some users will find quite intolerable.

Camera Capabilities

The OnePlus Nord CE 4 isn’t one to give in when it comes to photography: it has a dual versatile set of cameras, such as the 50MP Sony IMX890 with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), which comes with clear and sharp shots, paired with an 8MP ultra-wide lens for wide-angle pictures of landscapes. In front is a 16MP selfie camera that can take great selfies and make splendid video calls. It’s also able to shoot 4K video at 30fps and offers other slow-motion options; therefore, not only is it ideal for amateur photographers, but it’s also just good enough for aspiring content creators.

Software and User Experience

The OnePlus Nord CE 4 comes out of the box with the OxygenOS 14—the clean and intuitive user interface—packed with new features. Notable additions include the File Dock for convenient cross-app data sharing and Auto Pixelate 2.0 to protect personal information contained in photos. It includes that OnePlus has been ensuring major Android updates for two years, so users are always enjoying the latest improvements in its software and its security patches.

Pricing and Offers

Both the OnePlus Nord CE 4 storage variants will include 8GB of RAM and will have a choice between 128GB storage at Rs 24,999 and 256GB storage at Rs 26,999. The device will be sold through multiple channels starting April 4: One Plus. In the OnePlus Store App,
