OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition is here and it is going be available in India soon
The OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition is 2021’s limited edition device from the house of OnePlus. After weeks of speculations, the company finally revealed details about the all-new PAC-MAN Edition device that has been developed in partnership with Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc.
As always, the new limited edition model from OnePlus isn’t just a device with cosmetic changes but integrates some deeper aspects of what it is representing. For example, in the PAC-Man edition, the Nord 2 software incorporates the iconic game’s elements in the user interface.
Apart from announcing the launch of the phone, OnePlus also recently announced that it would offer users a chance to get OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition for free by participating in the PAC-MAN contest running on its website.
OnePlus as a brand, is known for launching special edition devices. The first special edition device was the OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition, built in partnership with Disney in 2018. The company then launched the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition in the same year in partnership with McLaren. In 2019, the company launched the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition, again with a partnership with McLaren. Last year, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition in China. In 2021, the company has partnered with Bandai Namco to launch OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition.
But, first, let’s closely look at how different is the new OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition from the original Nord 2.
OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition: What’s special
Much like other special edition devices from OnePlus, the OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition packs enough bells and whistles to make it look unique both software and physical appearance-wise.
The new Nord 2 comes with a back panel that has been redesigned, featuring a dual-film with phosphorescent ink applied to its innermost film that OnePlus says allows the device to glow in the dark. OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition comes with a maze inspired by the classic game that glows in the dark. Well, that will surely stand out for OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition users.
Apart from the back panel, OnePlus has also integrated software tweaks in OxygenOS UI that’s full of PAC-MAN elements. The phone packs games, challenges, and some exclusive (of course, hidden) PAC-MAN content that users will have to unlock.
OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition will be available in India at Rs 37,999, featuring 12GB of RAM and a 256GB storage model.
OnePlus had earlier also announced a contest wherein participants could win the PAC-MAN edition phone. The company was giving away three OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition devices along with a free pair of OnePlus Buds Z worth Rs 2,999.
Apart from free phones and OnePlus Buds Z, OnePlus was also giving away many early access codes for interested buyers. It’s worth mentioning that users from either Europe or India could participate in the PAC-MAN game contest. The contest is now over. But the company will be announcing the winners on the OnePlus community forum soon.
