With 3cameras, you get to take different types of photos using the same device.
The main 50MP camera on OnePlus Nord 2 5G is the dominant rear camera able to take good pictures in normal light with amazing detailing. Due to the size of the lens, photos taken by the camera contain more pixels bring in the details. This enables you to zoom in and still be able to pick details clearly or crop the images multiple times before you start losing quality. The intelligent camera also removes unwanted noise from your photo so that it looks sharp, clear, and bright. The camera also comes with Nightscape that lets you take bright, clear images at night. Nightscape works by taking 9 different photos at the same time and then combines them to produce the perfect photo.

With an ultrawide camera, you get to take wide photos that fit in more subjects. So when the time comes to take group photos or wide scenic photos, the OnePlus Nord 2 has you covered.
The depth camera blurs out the background, which can be distracting, and makes the subject pop out more. With the subject the main focus of attention, you get to take beautiful portrait photos like a professional.
The 2MP macro camera is for taking close-ups of tiny details. The macro camera lets you move your device up to 2cm of the subject to take clear detailed photos.
