OnePlus has announced a special Pac-Man Edition of the Nord 2 camera phone, released in July this year. The new version of the company’s latest mid-range smartphone is sure to appeal to those with fond memories of the 80’s cult classic arcade game. While the special editions fun twists are essentially just design tweaks, users will benefit from what is basically the same hardware as the OnePlus Nord 2 (opens in new tab), which we think is one of the best mid-range smartphones on the market, awarding it four and a half stars in our review.

The Pac-Man Edition of the Nord 2 is undeniably great fun – as well as a small Pac-Man logo, the phone glows in the dark to reveal a Pac-Man maze! The semi-translucent themed case features Pac-Man himself, alongside those pesky ghosts Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde.

Pac-Man-themed phone wallpaper and themed charging animation add to the appeal of this limited edition. Other 8-bit 80s touches include redesigned icons for OnePlus’ stock apps and retro notification alert sounds.

Pac-Man styling aside, the phone is the same as the original Nord 2, that comes with 2015’s free-to-play Pac-Man 256 pre-installed. Features of this remarkably good mid-range camera phone include a 6.43-inch 1080p 90Hz OLED display, MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI processor, large 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast-charging. The triple camera set-up is great too, with a 50MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP monochrome camera.
