OnePlus Nord 2 gets benchmarked on “AI Benchmark”

Now, there should be no doubt regarding the Dimensity 1200

Earlier this month, we learned that OnePlus would soon launch a phone powered by the Dimensity 1200 SOC by MediaTek. Later, we got to know that this phone would be the Nord 2. Today, the same was confirmed once again as the OnePlus Nord 2 was benchmarked on AI Benchmark, a popular benchmarking platform to test the AI performance of smartphones.

If the ranking on the website is to be believed, the Dimensity 1200-powered Nord 2 beats even the Snapdragon 888-powered phones in terms of AI performance. Some of the devices beaten by this phone include the Zenfone 8, ROG Phone 5, Mi 11X Pro, Mi 11 Ultra, etc. The Nord 2 sits among the top 10 phones on the AI Benchmark, so that’s interesting.

If you missed our previous article on the device, we shared some leaked specifications there. To recap, the OnePlus Nord 2 has a 90Hz Full-HD+ panel with a single hole punch, a 50 Megapixel Sony IMX766 primary sensor on the rear, a 4,500mAh battery, a 32 Megapixel front-facing camera & the good old OxygenOS.

This is going to be the first time a OnePlus phone would feature MediaTek SOC. The Dimensity 1200 is a flagship-grade SOC from MediaTek that packs an octa-core CPU with one Cortex-A78 Ultra core that is clocked at 3.0GHz, three Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.6GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. Also, the Sony IMX766 camera sensor on the OnePlus Nord 2 is the same sensor present in the OnePlus 9 series.

Well, we don’t have any word from OnePlus on the launch yet, so nothing can be said at the moment. Stay tuned!
