The OnePlus Nord‘s reign as the most affordable 5G phone from OnePlus has come to an end. The company today unveiled two new devices for its Nord series — both of which are cheaper than the OnePlus Nord, and one of them offers 5G connectivity.

(Update, January 6: For Philippine-based readers: OnePlus Nord N10 5G now cheapest 5G phone in PH.)

There’s the OnePlus Nord N10 5G, which is priced at £329 (around P20,735 or $428) for the model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage in the United Kingdom. Meanwhile, the entry-level OnePlus Nord N100 costs £179 (P11,281 or $233) in the same country and is limited to 4G LTE data. Both will eventually launch in the United States following their European release next month.

The Nord N100 will hit stores in the U.K. November 10, and the Nord N10 5G is expected to arrive late November. We are not sure if they will ever be available in the Philippines.

Launched: OnePlus Nord N10 5G and OnePlus N100. The latter is the brand’s cheapest smartphone thus far

OnePlus Nord N10 5G

An upper-midrange phone like the original Nord before, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G is equipped with a 5G-capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 chipset with an Adreno 619L GPU, which is downgraded from the graphics chip in the Snapdragon 765G-based Nord.

Compared with the regular model, though, it has a slightly larger 6.49-inch screen with a single punch hole for the selfie camera and the same 90Hz refresh rate. More importantly, it’s an LCD affair, not OLED, so there’s no under-display fingerprint sensor here. You’ll find the scanner for biometric authentication on the back of the handset.

The main rear camera is 64 megapixels, and sits alongside an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera and dedicated macro and depth sensors in a rectangular module. The front-facing camera has a 16-megapixel sensor, down from the Nord’s 32-megapixel selfie shooter.

The battery is 4,300mAh and supports 30-watt fast wired charging. Unsurprisingly, wireless charging is not an option, but you do get stereo speakers for better audio playback. Both the Nord N10 5G and N100 arrive with OnePlus’ OxygenOS 10.5 based on Android 10.

OnePlus Nord N100

As for the OnePlus Nord N100, you’re looking at a budget phone — the lowest-priced so far — powered by an 11nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB of UFS 2.1 storage. If the chip sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the same spec inside the Vivo Y20i and OPPO A53, which will launch in the Philippines soon.
