We had expected OnePlus Nord Lite at some point to follow OnePlus NorthAnd it was announced – sort of.
Meet the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100, two affordable new phones that the brand has revealed that are looking to hit some new prices and attract new buyers.
These phones bring some impressive specs considering the cost – the N10 5G has a display and camera that looks great for its cost, and the N100 looks like a real battery beast.
OnePlus Nord N10 5G
Among the new duo, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G is perhaps the one most associated with the Nord with very few great features for its price. It’s available for £ 329 (around $ 430, AU $ 600) – we’ll update this article as we reveal global pricing.
The phone has a 6.49-inch screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and FHD + resolution, and this refresh speed is particularly impressive for a low-cost phone, but you have to wonder what has been removed to achieve these specifications for this price.
The chipset used is the Snapdragon 690, which is a good processor for the price, which is paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The battery is 4,300 mAh, smaller than the N100 (as you’ll see shortly), but a 30W charging should allow you to run the battery very quickly. As the name suggests, there is also 5G compatibility (although OnePlus confirmed to TechRadar that it is the sub-band 6 widely used, not the mmWave which is used for the blazing speeds in some parts of the world).
When it comes to the camera, there is a 64MP final major associated with Ultra Wide, Macro and Monochrome additions, although the resolution of the sensors has not been detailed. There’s also a 16MP front camera, for making selfies, but we haven’t heard of any interesting additional features there.
OnePlus Nord N100
Then there’s the OnePlus Nord N100, a phone apparently built for our collection of The best cheap phones. Its low price of £ 179 in the UK (which turns out to be around $ 230, AU $ 330) – this is the cheapest phone OnePlus has launched in a long time.
The Nord N100 has a 6.52 inch screen – the resolution and refresh rate are not detailed, but we think they were HD and 60Hz respectively. It’s broken with a “punch” hole in the upper left.
The chipset here is the Snapdragon 460, which will not bring back incredible processing powers but will likely be good for the price. There’s also 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM – no 5G in terms of sounds.
Probably the biggest selling point here is the 5000 mAh battery, and depending on the phone’s display specifications (which have not been detailed yet) it can run the phone for a full two days of use.
The charging is 18 watts and it is OK This specification is very similar to a Moto G8 Power Lite, Which has a similar price as well.
There’s a 13-megapixel main camera associated with a bokeh camera and a macro camera on the back, but, like the selfie camera, it has an indefinite resolution.
We need to know more about these phones before we say they look really exciting – we are awaiting more information from OnePlus at the moment and will make sure to get full reviews of both of them as soon as possible.
The Nord N100 will go on sale on November 10, while the Nord N10 5G will be available later in November, so both will be released soon. There is no news of its availability in the US, although unlike the original Nord phone, it looks like the phones will eventually go on sale there.
