Very similar to the first OnePlus Nord of the name, the Nord N10 5G is built around an 6.49-inch 90Hz FHD + display. The Chinese brand once again opts for a perforated LCD panel, surrounded by thin borders. No AMOLED panel, unlike the OnePlus Nord. Note that the lower border, the chin, is thicker.

The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 SoC, a 5G compatible chipset reserved for mid-range devices, coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable storage up to 512 GB. Autonomy is entrusted to a 4300 mAh battery compatible with fast charging OnePlu Warp Charge 30Ts. Already integrated into the OnePlus Nord and OnePlus 7T, this ultra efficient technology saves 70% of the battery in 30 minutes of recharging.

Finally, the photo part is provided by a device made up of 4 photo sensors : a 64-megapixel main camera, an ultra-wide-angle module, a macro lens and a monochrome lens. OnePlus has these modules in a rectangular photo block similar to that of the OnePlus 8T or the Galaxy S20. In the hole in the screen, OnePlus slips a module for selfies of 16 megapixels.

OnePlus offers the OnePlus Nord N10 5G at the price of 349 €, only € 50 less than the OnePlus Nord, which it is very close to but slightly less premium. In particular, it skips the fingerprint reader under the screen for a classic reader located on the back. Ultimately, one can wonder if the two variants are not likely to self-cannibalize.

Even more affordable, the OnePlus Nord N100 is covered witha 6.52-inch HD + LCD screen. It is limited to 60 Hz, unlike other OnePlus Nord. Like the Nord N10 5G, it does not embed a fingerprint reader under the panel. The sensor is located on the back.

The smartphone is powered by the chipset Snapdragon 460, a mid-range chip that is not compatible with 5G. Users will have to settle for a 4G connection. The SoC is supported by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, expandable up to 512 GB. OnePlus entrusts the autonomy of the terminal to an imposing 5000 mAh battery.

On the other hand, it must be satisfied with a fast recharge of 18W. No Warp Charge for the North N100. On the photo side, the smartphone is equipped with a triple photo sensor consisting of a main 13 megapixel lens, a bokeh lens and a macro module. OnePlus will market the OnePlus Nord N100 at a price of € 199. It is the most affordable smartphone in the catalog of OnePlus.

The Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 will be marketed in France around the middle of November on the brand’s official website, on Amazon and at Fnac. What do you think of OnePlus’ new proposal? We await your opinion in the comments below.
