OnePlus has already released its first Nord series smartphone earlier this year. Specifically, this was the first mid-range phone from OnePlus. Though the Snapdragon 765G-based OnePlus Nord didn’t debut in the US, now OnePlus is going to launch the new Nord N10 5G in that country. From a couple of days, it was just a rumor, but recently, OnePlus has clarified that the company is planning to release a new model in the Nord series in the US, which is dubbed as the OnePlus Nord N10 5G (its internal codename is Billie).
Leaked Specification of OnePlus Nord N10
Now let’s get into the specifications of this upcoming phone. According to reports, this will be the first OnePlus smartphone to sport a 64MP camera at the back. By its name, we can easily assume that the upcoming phone will support the latest 5G connectivity. Regarding the display, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G will feature a 6.49-inch (FHD+ resolution) display with the refresh rate of 90Hz. As OnePlus every time provides a refresh rate greater or equal to 90Hz, it is that’s why expected that the upcoming phone will have a minimum refresh rate of 90Hz.
This phone will run on the Oxygen UI based on Android 10 OS and will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 processor. Most importantly, it will be the first Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 series chipset to support 5G connectivity. The 690 chipsets are built on the 8nm node and feature the latest Cortex A77 cores. Regarding the RAM/storage variants, this phone will come in a base variant of 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It is not confirmed yet, whether the storage is expandable or not.
Now coming to the camera section. As we said earlier that the OnePlus Nord N10 5G will be the first OnePlus phone to offer a 64MP camera at the back, this phone will feature a rear quad camera module at the back. This module will include a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP wide-angle lens, and two 2MP auxiliary sensors.
After a long time working with those flagships like the OnePlus 8 series and so on, OnePlus needed a mid-range series to continue its sales momentum. That’s why they are working on the Nord series to make it a premium as well as a budget-friendly smartphone from OnePlus.
Launch and Availability
The company hasn’t shared any information when the Nord N10 5G will get launched in the US. But it is expected that the Nord 10 5G likely to debut shortly after the OnePlus 8T. As the company has confirmed that it will be a mid-range phone, then the price tag might be under $400. Now that’s all we’ve got to date. We have to wait for a couple of more days to get clearer information about the upcoming smartphone from OnePlus.
