INTRO: The OnePlus Nord marked the company’s re-entry into the mid-range market earlier this year. The company is now looking to expand this lineup to cheaper price brackets with the launch of the Nord N10 5G and N100. These phones are alleged to make a politician debut within the US (where the first Nord didn’t launch) on 26th October, i.e next week.
The rumored launch date was shared by reputable tipster OnLeaks earlier last week. And now, the entire specifications sheet of both the Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 has leaked online.
Nord N10 5G
This N10 5G will carry forward the Nord legacy by offering almost the same features set, with minor hardware changes, at an even affordable price tag. We already know that it’ll feature an OnePlus 8T-like design and a blue colorway.
Nord N10 5G will include a 6.49-inch Full-HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The leak doesn’t say LCD or OLED but we suppose it’ll be an equivalent because the original Nord. We just don’t know anything about selfie cameras. You will find a quad-camera setup on the rear, led by a 64MP primary camera. It will be including an 8MP ultra-wide lens and two 2MP cameras, presumably for depth sensing and macro shots.
Under the hood, the Nord N10 are going to be powered by the Snapdragon 765G’s younger sibling, i.e the Snapdragon 690 5G. This is in line with previous rumors and can be including 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. You also find a modest 4,300mAh battery which will be charged via the USB Type-C port on board. We don’t know the charging speeds but since this may be the primary Nord smartphone within the US, we expect 30W Warp Charge support.
Also, OnLeaks has revealed that Nord N10 5G will resurrect the three .5mm headphone jack on OnePlus phones. This is great news for wired headphone users.
Nord N100 are going to be the foremost affordable smartphone within the company’s lineup. It will feature a 6.52-inch HD+ LCD display and an 8MP selfie sensor on the front. We currently do not know whether the selfie camera will be housed in a punch-hole or notch up-top.
As rumored within the past, N100 are going to be powered by the Snapdragon 460 chipset. You will find a minimum of 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage onboard. The device also includes a 5,000mAh battery as opposed to the previously-rumored bigger 6,000mAh pack.
It also includes a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack, as per the leak.
Since this will be an entry-level sub-$150 smartphone, we can’t really expect to have flagship cameras on board. Nord N100 will include a 13MP primary sensor, along side two 2MP sensors for depth sensing and macro shots.
As we had previously mentioned, the Nord N100 will presumably be a rebranded Oppo A53 with minor differences here and there. There’s currently no word on whether OnePlus will be launching these two offerings in India anytime soon.
