In what seems to be the quietest launch in the company’s history, OnePlus has today expanded its mid-range Nord lineup to even affordable price segments. The company launched two new (but long-rumored) smartphones, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100, in Europe.

OnePlus Nord N10 5G Specs

OnePlus Nord N10 5G can be view as a younger sibling to the original Nord that was launched back in July earlier this year. It features a 6.49-inch Full-HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 16MP selfie camera housed in the punch-hole at the top left.

Under the hood, the phone is powered by the Snapdragon 690 from Qualcomm. It is an octa-core chipset with Kryo 560 CPU with clock speeds up to 2.0GHz and a new Adreno 619L GPU. You can read how Snapdragon 690 compares to the Snapdragon 765 chipset right here. It is coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage.

The smartphone has a rectangular camera cutout, similar to the OnePlus 8T, housing four sensors on the rear. It is led by a 64MP camera, which is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP monochrome sensor.

Furthermore, the Nord N10 5G also comes equipped with a modest 4,300mAh battery that supports 30W fast-charging via the USB-C port onboard. It runs OxygenOS 10.5 based on Android 10, which means you won’t be able to experience the amazing one-handed stock-like OxygenOS 11 just yet. One of the highlights of this device, as well as the Nord N100 that we talk about below, will have to be the return of the 3.5mm headphone jack.
