As for the OnePlus Nord 2 5G, it packs a slightly small 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel with a 20:9 aspect ratio, 90Hz refresh rate. The panel has sRGB and P3 support. The Nord employs a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 5G chipset coupled with up to 12GB RAM. On the camera front, the phone gets a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 primary sensor, an 8- megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 2- megapixel mono lens. Upfront, there is a 32-megapixel Sony IMX615 camera with support for up to 1080p video recording. The OnePlus Nord 2 offers a clean user interface with OxygenOS based Android 11.

OnePlus Nord 2

If one is to talk about the design, both devices have near similar dimensions, with a slight ounce tweak in weight. From the front, the two mid-rangers look identical with a punch-hole cutout at the top left corner. The rear panel on OnePlus Nord 2 and Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G is built out of glass, while the mid-frame is made of plastic. The glass back gives a premium appeal to the phones and the unique colorway adds it to the aesthetics. However, one of the differences between both devices is biometrics. While the Xiaomi phone gets a side-mounted fingerprint reader, the Nord on the other hand has an optical fingerprint reader. Moreover, the former has IP53 rated water and splash protection, while the latter doesn’t have any IP certification.

Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G vs OnePlus Nord 2 5G: Which one should you buy?

While the spec sheet of both the devices looks good on paper, Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G grabs up a few points in terms of display, design, and internals. The OnePlus Nord 2, no doubt is a good performer, however, the new Snapdragon SoC on the Xiaomi phone promises a balanced performance- be it multitasking, or camera. However, the OnePlus Nord 2’s slightly big battery, fast charging solution, and oodles of RAM cover up for the missing points. In a nutshell, if you are looking for a well-balanced performer in the sub-Rs 30,000 price segment, you can pick the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G, but if you have extra RAM, faster-charging capability, and a clean UI, then OnePlus Nord 2 would be the right pick.
