OnePlus Nord N30 SE Spotted on Geekbench, Specifications Revealed

In a recent revelation on Geekbench, the OnePlus Nord N30 SE, initially thought to be a rebranded OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite, has surprised enthusiasts with notable differences. The model, coded as 'CPH2605,' distinguishes itself from its counterparts, the Nord 3 CE Lite and Nord N30, with some significant changes.

Processor and RAM:

Unlike its siblings using the Snapdragon 695, the N30 SE stands out by opting for a MediaTek 6020 processor. This shift comes with a RAM reduction, featuring 4GB, a departure from the standard 8GB seen in the other models. The MediaTek 6020, though slightly slower than the Snapdragon 695, brings its own set of capabilities.

Performance and Connectivity:

Comparing it to the previous generation, specifically the Nord N20 5G and N20 SE, the N30 SE positions itself as a more budget-friendly option with 5G connectivity, contrasting the SE of the previous generation that lacked this feature. This model's downgrades extend to the display and camera specifications.

Battery and Charging:

The N30 SE is projected to house a 4,880mAh battery (typically 5,000mAh) with 33W fast charging. This is a step down from its siblings, the Nord 3 CE Lite with a 5,000mAh battery and 67W charging, and the N30 with 50W charging.

Software and Pricing:

Noteworthy is the Android 13 OS version listed for the N30 SE, aligning with its positioning as a more affordable device. While the exact pricing is yet to be unveiled, it's anticipated to be below the USD 300/CAD 380 launch price of the Nord N30.

In summary, the OnePlus Nord N30 SE distinguishes itself in the OnePlus Nord lineup with its MediaTek 6020 processor, 4GB RAM, 5G connectivity, and a slightly smaller battery with 33W fast charging. As the more budget-friendly option, it is poised to cater to users looking for a reliable device without breaking the bank. Keep an eye out for further details on its pricing and availability.
