Design and Display
The OnePlus Nord N30 SE 5G measures 165.60 mm x 76.00 mm x 7.99 mm and weighs 193 g. The front is built with glass while the frames and rear are made of plastic. It’s compensated with feathery patterns on Cyan Sparkle and a glossy finish on Black Satin colorways. But there’s no luxury-watch-inspired camera module. Instead, you get a rectangular configuration with dual cameras shining on the back with an LED flash positioned in the middle to the right. The front gets a hole-punch camera cutout in the middle contributing to large real estate for the phone.
On the display front, the phone gets a 6.72-inch IPS LCD (LTPS) screen with a 91.4% screen-to-body ratio and an FHD+ resolution of 1080×2400 pixels. The screen has 392 pixels per inch density to offer sharp visuals. Missing out on the AMOLED display could be a bit of a downsize here but IPS LCD screens offer real-life colors so you get authentic images and not vivid and flashy graphics on the screen. The device comes with a 20:9 aspect ratio. OnePlus calls it a “Sunlight Display” promoting its easy viewing in sunlight. Keep a note that there’s no IP rating on this model so you may need to be a little more conscious with the device coming in close proximity to water.
Chipset and Performance
For performance, the OnePlus Nord N30 SE 5G comes with MediaTek Dimensity 6020 chipset. It’s a 7nm build release in 2023. It’s got an octa-core processing setup. For e.g., the primary two cores function at their peak at 2.2 GHz, and the remaining six performance cores clock at 2.0 GHz speed. The chipset houses Mali-G57 MC2 to handle the graphics. It’s not a flagship chipset but it does enough good for the device. For the sake of comparison, the OnePlus 12 gets Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and OnePlus 12R has Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 which are both high-end SoCs.
Likewise, the model comes with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. Here, you might have wished for a 6 GB starter but OnePlus’s move does help to make it price-friendly. Another underwhelming aspect may be that you won’t have the option to expand the storage via a microSD card.
The OnePlus Nord N30 SE 5G runs on Android 13 with the in-house custom skin OxygenOS 13.1 on top. The company says that the nature-inspired OS is not just pleasing to the eyes, but also offers better performance, faster app loading, and power efficiency. There’s no Android 14 coming out of the box. But that could be upgraded with a software update later.
The battery department is where OnePlus will impress you as it goes toe-to-toe with the high-end “12” series. The OnePlus Nord N30 SE 5G comes with a 5,000mAh battery pack. If it hits 5,000mAh, it should be a massive one to last one day or even two with minimal use. Having a large battery is a solid value as it allows for plenty of time on videos, music, screen time, and gaming as well. To complement it, OnePlus has included a 33W SUPERVOOC fast charging. The company claims that the device can charge up to 51% in just half an hour with the wired fast charger.
For the optics, OnePlus has included a 50MP primary camera on the rear panel with a ½.76” sensor size. It’s complemented by a 2MP depth camera for portrait snaps. So, that’s a dual-camera setup on the back. For zooming in, the camera supports 10x digital zoom.
On the front, the OnePlus Nord N30 SE 5G gets an 8MP selfie shooter for photos and videos and facial recognition. Both rear and front camera lets you shoot 1080p videos at 30fps. There’s no acclaimed OIS feature here. However, you do get AI-powered photography that produces enhanced and beautiful photos. Additionally, the Ultra-Night Mode lets you take decent photos in low-light conditions.
The best connectivity feature for the OnePlus Nord N30 SE 5G is of course the support for the next-generation 5G technology. It brings huge download and upload speeds unleashing unprecedented throughput capacity for all internet use cases. Besides, the model supports up to WiFi 5 standard and dual-band connection. There’s support for Bluetooth 5.3 version, A2DP, Low Energy (LE) and USB Type-C 2.0. You can use OTG to connect flash drives and watch or transfer files.
