OnePlus Nord CE4 Lite Arrives to Battle Samsung's Cheap Phone

From CNET: OnePlus Nord range of Android phones have always focused on affordability and the new Nord CE4 Lite is no exception. This phone won't be available in the US but in the UK it'll go on sale on July 1 for only £299. For reference, that converts to $379. For that money you get a single 50-megapixel main camera, a 6.67-inch display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chip, providing 5G connectivity.

So far, so fair enough, but the Nord also offers fast 80W wired charging, which should allow you to juice the phone up in extremely quick times. It also has a capacious 5,110mAh battery, which OnePlus reckons should give you two full days of use. Of course, battery life very much depends on how demanding you are of the phone so we'll reserve our judgement on this until we can put it to the test.

Other specs include 8GB of RAM, 256GB of base storage, but also features a microSD card slot to expand the storage, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack to use wired headphones.

On paper, the phone has a lot in common with Samsung's recent A55 5G, such as the microSD card slot, headphone jack, screen size, similar battery capacity and 50 megapixel main camera. While Samsung's phone adds an additional ultra-wide camera to the mix, the OnePlus's fast charging might make it a more appealing phone for those of you not bothered about photography. Especially as the A55 5G costs quite a bit more than the OnePlus.
