Here's your first look at the OnePlus Nord CE 5G

OnePlus announces yet another stripped-down Nord.

What you need to know

  • OnePlus today shared more on the OnePlus Nord CE 5G, a stripped-down version of the OnePlus Nord.
  • It's set to come to Europe and India for an affordable price.
  • An official launch will reveal everything on June 10.

OnePlus today introduced the OnePlus Nord Core Edition, following up on its OnePlus Nord N200 reveal yesterday via an exclusive shared to TechRadar. The OnePlus Nord CE aims to replicate the core of the original Nord, one of the best cheap Android phones in 2020. Of course, OnePlus will also be cutting down on many of the specs to accomplish this.

Down from a quad lens, OnePlus will have a triple-lens layout at the rear. With two of the Nord's lenses being more or less useless though, this is doesn't quite matter. Instead, what does matter is that the company will keep a powerful main shooter, and likely an ultra-wide. TechRadar speculates it may have a depth or a macro shooter of some unknown resolution, a 5MP variant of either would be expected.

OnePlus will keep the 90Hz screen, though it comes below rivals like Xiaomi which offer 120Hz screens on phones such as the Mi 10T Lite or its Redmi-skinned cousins. It'll also be adding in things as fast charging with its Warp Charge 30T Plus.

Design-wise, if you've seen the OnePlus Nord 2020, you've seen this phone. OnePlus doesn't claim to be reinventing the wheel here, the main thing here is that the phone has things that people like, so they're keeping what works and jettisoning what doesn't.

If it seems like nothing is really improving in comparison to other phones, it's a deliberate choice, OnePlus says. Many cheap phones nowadays offer a lot to consumers in terms of hardware, so OnePlus wants to set itself apart by "actively" avoiding them and offering the bare minimum of fast charging, a smooth display, and 5G. As far as strategies go, that is certainly one of them.

Much like the OnePlus Nord N200 5G revealed yesterday, the company seems to deliberately be running in place with its phones. With Samsung, Xiaomi, and even Google having overall better packages at sub $400 price-points, it's not clear if the Nord CE 5G will fare critically as well as the original Nord.

OnePlus has yet to share pricing or street dates other than noting that it'll be available in Europe and India for an affordable price. It'll do so on June 10th when this officially launches.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. Samsung's bes

Every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Armor up Ratchet and Rivet before taking down their enemies. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers. The Galactic Rangers' chest armor is forged with justice and Raritarium. The Galactic Rangers' pants protect the galaxy... and your legs
