OnePlus has officially re-entered the mid-range smartphone race by launching OnePlus Nord in India and Europe. The company is also focusing a lot on entry-level handsets as well as on mid-rangers and wants to pursue this new strategy seriously by making affordable smartphones available in all parts of the world.
The company announced that it’d bring affordable smartphones in the USA, though it didn’t share specifics on the launch date. A few days ago, we reported OnePlus will launch not one but two affordable OnePlus Nord smartphones in the USA by the end of this month. Now, tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer has given us the details that we’re all waiting for — the launch date(via Android Authority).
According to the tipster, the Shenzhen-based tech company is going to release OnePlus N10 and OnePlus N100 smartphones in the USA on October 26 at 8AM EDT.
NORD N10 SPECS
OnePlus Nord N10 5G will be powered by Snapdragon 690 processor, which is Qualcomm’s first 5G-equipped Snapdragon 600 series chipset. For the sake of comparison, the OnePlus Nord is powered by Snapdragon 675, which is not equipped with 5G and is 25% less powerful than the SD 690. The Nord N10 5G will have at least 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage, which also means there will another variant with more RAM and storage.
Talking about the display, the Nord N10 5G will feature a 6.49-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate and an FHD+ resolution. The 90Hz screen refresh rate can also be found in the Nord smartphone and now that it’s also coming to the N10, it seems that however low-cost smartphones the company makes, it wants to offer a 90Hz screen refresh rate as the minimum.
The Nord N10 will feature a decent camera setup. The smartphone will have a 64MP main camera, which will be joined by an 8MP wide-angle lens and two 2MP auxiliary sensors. We don’t have any information on the selfie camera at this moment.
The tipster didn’t mention the price of these two new affordable OnePlus phones, but rumor has it that the N10 will cost under $400. We currently have no information on the specs and pricing of the Nord N100 smartphones. Hopefully, we’ll get to know more about them before the launch.
Nord N100 Specs
The Nord N100 smartphone features a 6.52-inch display with 720p resolution and is rumored to be powered by Snapdragon 460 coupled with 4GB of RAM. The smartphone has a triple camera array with a 13MP primary sensor and a 6,000mAh battery. It’s expected to cost around $200.
