The OnePlus Nord CE4 Lite Could Have Been a Good Phone, But…

After it was teased last week, OnePlus has made the Nord CE4 Lite official in Europe and India. While it’s an upgrade over last year’s CE3 Lite, there’s one big catch with the CE4 Lite.

Let’s start with the upgrades: this time, the CE4 Lite now gets a 120hz OLED display that has a peak brightness of 1200nits and an in-display fingerprint scanner. The battery is slightly bigger at 5150mAh (5500mAh for the India version), and charging speeds are faster at 80w instead of 67w. Also new is the support for USB-PD charging at 55w, so you need not worry about not having a SuperVOOC charger with you to enjoy fast charging.

Despite the bigger battery, the Nord CE4 Lite is thinner and lighter than the CE3 Lite at 8.1mm and 191g respectively–on top of having an IP54 rating. You also get both stereo speakers and a headphone jack, along with an LYT-600 main camera with OIS.

Now for the cons: you get a filler camera accompanying the main camera, and the processor remains to be a Snapdragon 695 that’s paired with 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB UFS 2.2 storage. OnePlus has been using this configuration since the CE2 Lite, and it baffles us why they still used a Snapdragon 695 on the CE4 Lite when there are better options like the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1.

The OnePlus Nord CE4 Lite is priced at 330 Euros(~Php 21k) in Europe and Rs 24000(~Php 17k) in India. It will be available in Europe on July 1 and in India on June 27, where the Indian version gets the exclusive Orange colorway.
