Since OnePlus isn’t usually very good at keeping secrets, and most of the time it feels like the company isn’t even trying so hard to hide all the important things about its smartphones from the official announcements, you shouldn’t be too surprised hear that the next member of the fast growing Nord family is already an open book.
We talk about everything from battery capacity and charging speed to building materials and detailed camera specifications, and while nothing is set in stone yet, it looks like we have another solid contender for the title of best budget 5G phone in our hands in 2021.
A mix of upgrades and downgrades from the original north
Since you’re pretty sure about what’s going on with this unusually tangled and confusing branding scheme, CE apparently stands for Core Edition. In contrast to the names N10 and N100, that means at least something, but unfortunately it’s not that easy to distinguish this upcoming mid-end model from its aforementioned predecessors.
While there is obviously no real danger of confusing the OnePlus Nord CE 5G with the much more modest 4G LTE-only Nord N100, the previously rumored functions are basically a combination of the first generation Nord and the Nord N10 5G.
This is most likely the OnePlus Nord CE 5G design
The former handset is expected to borrow this undoubtedly affordable mid-range under-display fingerprint sensor, roughly a 6.43-inch AMOLED screen, and the 6 and 8 GB storage configurations with 64 and 128 GB of data, respectively.
But the “Core Edition” phone will likely have a number of things in common with the N10 as well, including an all-plastic construction, a 64MP rear-facing main shooter, a single 16MP selfie camera, a good old-fashioned one Headphone jack and no alarm slider.
That doesn’t include what the OnePlus Nord CE shares with the original North and the N10, like FHD + screen resolution, 90Hz refresh rate technology, Warp Charge 30T Plus support (also known as 30W charging capability), a secondary 8MP ultra-wide angle lens, and a 2MP depth sensor.
Impressively, OnePlus will reportedly increase the battery size from 4,115 and 4,300 mAh on the Nord and Nord N10 to 4,500 mAh while reducing the overall thickness of the device to 7.9 mm. To illustrate this phone’s place on the company’s totem pole, a Snapdragon 750 processor should be in charge of the Raw Power division, from the Nord 765 but from the N10 690.
How deep can the Nord CE 5G go?
As is so often the case with respectable mid-range smartphones, the price recommendation will essentially make or break the fourth member of the previously successful OnePlus Nord family.
Unfortunately, the budget-friendly new phone is not expected to hit the States and, according to its announcement on June 10, will supposedly go exclusively to the old continent and India.
This is the OnePlus Nord N10 5G
In Europe, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G is said to be “slightly lower” than the first-generation Nord, which normally starts at 399 euros in most markets. While we can’t be entirely sure if that means $ 299, $ 349, or something in between, people are at MySmartPrice currently predicts that the 8GB / 128GB storage variant will hit roughly Rs. 25,000 marks in India and thus on par with the OnePlus Nord … in an entry-level configuration with 6/64 GB.
