After launching their flagship phone OnePlus Nord in July, the company has launched two new phones: OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100. While these two phones have been launched as budget smartphones they give quite a competition to the phones of their own family. Especially, OnePlus Nord N10 5G consists of similar features that are also found in the original OnePlus Nord and OnePlus 8T but at a more affordable price. Even though N100 has taken a step back by being a 4G network phone, N10 still managed to stay as a 5G network phone that OnePlus had promised.
OnePlus Nord N10 5G Overview
OnePlus Nord N10 5G is powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 chipset that also provides a 5G network to the device. It consists of super-fast charging of 30T, 90Hz smooth display, quad camera, and many other exciting features on a budget smartphone.
The new model has a 6.49-inch display with 1080 x 2400 (FHD+), 405 PPI resolution. The corners of the screen are within a standard rectangle. But, measured diagonally, the screen size is 6.49 inches in the full rectangle and 6.25 inches accounting for the rounded corners.
There is one major change from the original Nord – the panel is now an IPS LCD. This display has 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. It has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and a refresh rate of 90Hz. Furthermore, it has the other two modes for phone usage: Reading mode and Night mode.
With a capacity of 4,300mAh (non-removable), it’s a fraction larger than the Nord battery and it charges just as fast with Warp Charge 30T Fast Charging.
The rear camera on the Nord N10 is actually slightly better equipped than that of the original. It features a 64MP sensor inside the main camera maintaining the 119° ultra-wide camera, along with, 8 MP sensor and dedicated two 2MP macro and depth modules.
Although the selfie camera has a single punch hole, the original Nord’s 32MP main camera drops down to 16MP for OnePlus Nord N10 5G. It also has Face Unlock, HDR, Screen Flash, Face Retouching feature.
The N10 5G is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 chipset, which is similar to the S765G chip used in the Oneplus 8 model with several key differences. It combines speed and strength with power efficiency for sustainable, superior connectivity. Hence, the upgraded Qualcomm Kryo 560 CPU and Qualcomm Adreno 619L GPU push performance to the next level, enabling robust, efficient computing and smooth graphics rendering.
