We were expecting a OnePlus Nord Lite at one point, to follow the OnePlus Nord, and that was announced – sort of.
Meet the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and the Nord N100, two new affordable phones unveiled by the brand looking to hit new prices and attract new buyers.
These handsets bring in some pretty impressive specs considering the cost – the N10 5G has a screen and camera that sound good for its cost, and the N100 sounds like a real battery beast.
OnePlus Nord N10 5G
Among the new duo, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G is perhaps the most closely tied to the Nord with some impressive features for its price. It’s available for £ 329 (around $ 430, AU $ 600) – we’ll update this article when global prices are released.
The phone has a 6.49-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate and FHD + resolution, and that refresh rate is particularly impressive for a budget phone, but you should be wondering what has been. deleted to achieve this specification for this price.
The chipset used is a Snapdragon 690, a good processor for the price, and it is paired with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
The battery is 4300mAh, smaller than the N100 (as you’ll see in a moment), but the 30W charge should get you going to power the battery really quickly. As the name suggests, there is also 5G compatibility (although OnePlus has confirmed to TechRadar that this is only the widely used sub-6 band, not the mmWave which is used for hyper-speeds. in some parts of the world).
As for the camera, there’s a 64 MP main snapper attached to ultra-wide, macro, and monochrome extras, although the resolutions for the sensors haven’t been detailed. There’s a 16 MP front-facing camera as well, for selfie working, but we haven’t heard of any cool additional features.
OnePlus Nord N100
Then there’s the OnePlus Nord N100, a handset apparently intended for our roundup of the best budget phones. It has a low price of £ 179 in the UK (which converts to around $ 230, AU $ 330) – it’s the cheapest phone OnePlus has released in a long time.
The Nord N100 has a 6.52-inch screen – resolution and refresh rate weren’t detailed, but we would assume they were HD and 60Hz respectively. It is interrupted by a “perforated” cutout at the top left.
The chipset here is the Snapdragon 460, which won’t render incredible processing powers, but it will likely be good for the price. There is also 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM – no 5G according to sounds.
Perhaps the main selling point here is the 5,000mAh battery, and depending on the phone’s display specs (which haven’t been detailed yet), it could power the handset for two full days of use.
The load is 18W, which Okay – these specs are very similar to the Moto G8 Power Lite, which also has a similar price tag.
There’s a 13 MP main camera attached to a bokeh and macro camera on the back, but they, like the selfie camera, have unspecified resolutions.
We need to know a lot more about these phones before we can say that they sound really exciting – we’re waiting for more information from OnePlus for now and we’ll make sure we get full reviews on both as soon as possible.
The Nord N100 goes on sale on November 10, while the Nord N10 5G will be available later in November, so both will be arriving very soon. There is no news on availability in the US, although unlike the original North, it looks like the handsets will eventually go on sale there.
