OnePlus has just unveiled its OnePlus Nord N10 and N100, its new entry-level smartphones available from just 199 euros.
Until then used to ” flagships killers “, OnePlus decides to expand its catalog this year with the North range. After a first model this summer, two new smartphones have just been presented: the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100. They have been designed by selecting the features most requested by the community while reducing costs.
Like an Oppo A53 tune
The first rumors foreshadowed it, the OnePlus Nord N100 looks a lot like the Oppo A53, with barely thinner edges. It’s hard not to see an even more tenuous rapprochement between the two brands which already share a lot, starting with their R&D center.
This design is nevertheless fairly standard in 2020 with a “domino” photo module on the back and a bubble in the upper left corner of the screen. As for the Pixel 5, we nevertheless return to a fingerprint sensor on the back, which was now rather rare.
An N100 aimed at entry level
The OnePlus Nord N100 displays a modest technical sheet which shows a desire to drastically lower prices. We find in particular a 6.52-inch IPS HD + LCD screen (1600 x 720 pixels), ie a density of only 269 PPP and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 SoC, which can be found for example on… the Oppo A53.
For the rest of its technical sheet, count on 4 GB of LPDDR4x RAM, 64 GB of storage expandable by microSD, a jack port and a 5000 mAh rechargeable battery at 18 W.
As for the photo, we are on a 3-sensor configuration, but don’t expect enormous versatility. Only one of them is really interesting: the main 13 Megapixel sensor (with f / 2.2 lens). The other two will be used for Macro photos and portrait mode, with 2 MP in both cases.
A more attractive N10
The OnePlus Nord N10 is for its part a little more interesting with a 6.49-inch Full HD + IPS LCD screen (or 405 DPI) with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. It also embeds a Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 chip that promises everything more possibilities, as well as 6 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128 GB of storage, always expandable.
In photos, it is a little better with a 64 Mpx main sensor with f / 1.79 lens and an 8 Mpx ultra wide angle (f / 2.25, 119 °). There is always a macro module and a monochrome sensor of 2 Mpx each.
For autonomy, count on a rechargeable 4300 mAh battery with the Warp Charge 30T that we found on the OnePlus 8T at the beginning of the year.
From 199 euros
Both phones run Android 10 with OxygenOS. Their price is 199 euros for the North N100 and 349 euros for the North N10. They will be available mid-November on the OnePlus site, but also on Amazon and Fnac.
