You might have heard about the two latest models released by OnePlus namely Nord N10 5G along with Nord N100. We are here to discuss all about them.
The main point, which is the takeaway from the announcement, OnePlus is mainly focusing its attention on the budget along with the entry level segments with the new devices. The Nord N100 will be debuting for about $200, while Nord N10 5G is set to be one of the most affordable 5G enabled devices.
Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 will now be available in United States, unlike the Snapdragon 765G powered Nord. And that’s the best news for everyone who is looking to buy a phone under budget and mainly considering both the models of OnePlus will be sold through T-Mobile.
OnePlus was the only third-party manufacturer that drops out a public beta program; earlier Android 11 was released over a month ago. Introducing with OxygenOS 11 by Beta, the latest version of OnePlus has a custom skin. With OxygenOS 11, OnePlus entirely changed the design and look, including the UI.
Having Snapdragon 690, Nord N10 5G has 6.49-inch 90Hz panel along with 64 MP camera, and a battery life of 4300mAh battery with a 30 W fast charging. Nord N100 has more modest specs in the form of a 6.52-inch with a HD+ screen, 13MP camera and a Snapdragon 460 chipset, even so you do get a battery life of 5000mAh with a 18W fast charging.
Offering a rear mounted fingerprint sensor, along with the microSD card slots are a few outstanding features, which they end up feeling derivative. This is due to the existing design of OPPO, which OnePlus is reusing and also switching out the branding.
Earlier this month, OnePlus delivered the stable version of OxygenOS 11 to the OnePlus 8 series and its flagship – the OnePlus 8T – runs the Android 11 based OxygenOS 11, which is out of the box.
However, that was not the case with the Nord N10 5G and N100, which was announced two weeks after the introduction of the 8T.
As a fact over the last few years, Samsung’s shortcoming on the software front was what allowed OnePlus to gain a momentum. And thereby OnePlus differentiates itself by two points. The first one is a clean software interface devoid of over-customization and secondly, timely update.
As OnePlus chose to take the easy path, it could have led the way here by offering Android 11 out of the box and thereby maintaining a coherent software strategy across its portfolio.
