This is how OnePlus Nord 2 x Pac-Man Edition is made: a tribute to the game inside and out

15 November 2021 5

OnePlus launches a version special of OnePlus Nord 2 dedicated to Pac-Man , the legendary arcade video game Some years 80. The smartphone has been modified in its design and also in the software to become u n real tribute to the ravenous face . We have tried it these days and we can confirm that it is a very nice and fun device, built on the solid foundation of the OnePlus Nord 2 .

THE DESIGN

Right from the packaging of OnePlus Nord 2 X Pac-Man Edition it is understood that this is a special edition (otherwise limited, even if with large numbers), the package is printed with a Pac-Man theme and contains the 65 Watt, the charging cable and one artistic cover drawn on several levels : the background is a 3D labyrinth, while on the surface the original game logo, a revised OnePlus logo, plus of course Pac-Man and colored ghosts.

The same concept of multi-level graphics is used for the glass body of the smartphone , really gorgeous. Below you can glimpse a plot that recalls the walls within which the game levels of Pac-Man unfold in 3 dimensions with also the square logo in OnePlus, more on the surface a chrome dotted texture , the yellow face and the writing ONEPLUS X PAC-MAN next to the photo module.



The original particularity is given by the deeper level with the labyrinth that is phosphorescent and glows in the dark. OnePlus Nord 2 X Pac-Man is produced in the unique pale blue color and incorporates the features and materials of the original OnePlus Nord 2.

The rear body and the front glass are therefore in Gorilla Glass 5, while the frame is in plastic, there is no certification resistance to water and dust.

As already highlighted on the occasion of the OnePlus Nord 2 test, it is one smartphone with right size (especially the width), it is not too heavy and holds very well compared to the average of smartphones that are launched lately. The front glass is flat, while the body is slightly curved at the edges, further facilitating the grip. Certainly worth mentioning is the excellent quality of the cover supplied in the package , which does not is the usual soft TPU destined to yellow in a few weeks.



PHONE HOLDER TO BUILD

By purchasing OnePlus Nord 2 x Pac-Man Edition from the official website of OnePlus, you will have as a gift a nice phone holder to be built with Lego-style bricks.

“GO TO PERFECT” is printed on two of the bricks, a clear clue (along with what is written on the attached instructions) on how to unlock the final easter egg of Pac-Man journey in the OnePlus universe , a 4-stage game hidden within the system.

DATA SHEET

OnePlus Nord 2 X Pac-Man Edition shares the data sheet with the standard version of OnePlus Nord 2, but is marketed in the only memory denomination with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space . The processor is very good Mediatek Dimensity 1200 TO THE, intended exclusively for OnePlus Nord, with a particular customization on performance and consumption management.

    • 32 MP F / 2. 45 Sony IMX 615 – front

We could define it as a mid-range hardware that looks up, not only for the processor but for the general completeness of the entire technical sector. On the special edition dedicated to Pac-Man there is a lot of storage space and an exaggerated amount of RAM , certainly not fundamental characteristics but that go well within a limited series context.

These features are reflected in a user experience that is always pleasant and reliable at 360 degrees , from the never fluctuating performances to the telephone part, passing through a satisfactory multimedia sector. We have defined OnePlus Nord 2 “the right smartphone for many” and here we can only emphasize the concept: it is a product that perfectly covers all needs, thanks to the right specifications in key points and to the OxygenOS, now even richer after the merging with OPPO’s ColorOS.



Also good autonomy , capable of always bringing the user and never in trouble even on the most stressful days, without forgetting the very fast recharge (0 – 100% in 35 minutes) which becomes very useful if necessary. The photographic sector relies on the sensor Sony IMX 766 , which we have already spoken very well in the OnePlus Nord 2 review, is a higher-end sensor and consequently the photos that this device manages to take have always proved to be up to the task, among the best in the mid-range.

THE SOFTWARE DEDICATED TO PACMAN

OnePlus has not limited itself to the aesthetic part of OnePlus Nord 2 X Pac-Man Edition, but has also modified the software by adding numerous elements taken from the game or in honor of the same .

Backgrounds, icons, sounds, animations, notification curtain graphics and other elements to unlock through 4 easter eggs that correspond to the 4 phases of an ideal journey of Pac-Man in the universe of OnePlus. The user is therefore invited from the initial configuration to discover the surprises hidden within the system, the latter is the most complex and refers to a very precise (it’s known) 7-digit number linked to the original Pac-Man game.

Pac-Man game is then pre-installed on the system 256 developed by Bandai Namco, which reinterprets the 8-bit universe of Pac-Man in a three-dimensional key. PS: playing the title you can unlock two of the easter eggs!

PRICE AND CONSIDERATIONS

OnePlus Nord 2 X Pac-Man Edition is proposed in the only memory cut 12 / 256 GB a 529 EUR, 30 more than OnePlus Nord 2 with the same memory size, which we are absolutely considering that it is a limited and very special edition.

The idea is very nice and we liked the smartphone as much as its namesake in the standard version. Of course, if you are not a huge Pac-Man fan and don’t care about having some more decoration on the design, then OnePlus Nord 2 remains a very valid option and allows you to save a lot, especially in the version from 128 GB of internal memory.
