OnePlus Nord 2T

OnePlus has announced two new phones on the 19th of May in Europe: Nord 2T 5G and Nord CE 2 Lite 5G. The 2T has an upgraded SoC and faster charging; the Dimensity 1200 of the Nord 2 versus the Dimensity 1300 of the Nord 2T. The Nord 2T can also charge with 80W (this is 65W for the Nord 2). Remarkably, this is the first time OnePlus uses a T-version for their Nord phones. It lacks a headphone jack, which the Nord CE 2 Lite does have. The price of the Nord 2T is €399 for the base 8GB/128GB variant. That's the same price as the previous Nord (e.g. Nord 1 and 2)-phones. The 12GB/256GB variant is €499. The Nord 2T will be released next week.
