OnePlus’ most recent modest telephone launching in North America is the “OnePlus Nord N200 5G.” The telephone is a development to the $180 Nord N100 from last year, and with OnePlus’ standard yearly cost increases, the N200 is up to a still-dirt-cheap $240.
Considering the $240 value, it seems as though you’re getting a pretty capable entry-level phone. The telephone has a 6.49-inch, 90 Hz 1080p showcase; 4GB of RAM; 128GB of capacity; and a 5000 mAh battery with 18 W charging. The photos show a side fingerprint reader, a USB-C port, and an earphone jack. The SoC is a Snapdragon 480, a 8 nm, eight-center SoC with four ARM Cortex A76 centers and four A55 centers.
The telephone (and those specs) are true today, however for reasons unknown, OnePlus isn’t releasing a full spec list. For that, leaker Evan Blass fills in the blanks. Blass says the telephone will have a 2400×1080 LCD, NFC, a microSD space, and sub-6 GHz 5G help (not mmWave), which is normal at this value point. Blass’ specs likewise fill in the subtleties on the rear camera lineup, which features a 13MP main camera and two 2MP “Macro” and “Monochrome” cameras that we will call “purely decorative.” Phone manufacturers think various cameras are a significant selling point for telephones, regardless of whether the extra cameras do barely anything.
The leaked specs put the telephone on Android 11. The Nord N100’s update policy was pretty bad; the device got one significant OS update and two years of semi-regular (not month to month) updates. OnePlus has not uttered a word about improving that schedule for the N200, so they are probably getting a similar policy here.
To the extent the competition goes, the remove point for any modest telephone is $350, since that is the cost of the excellent Pixel 4a with three years of updates. Beneath that, there is a spot for a decent $240 gadget, yet you get significantly more for $110 more.
The Nord N200 5G goes marked down in the US and Canada on June 25. Other than accessibility on OnePlus.com, T-Mobile is the exclusive wireless partner on the main service and the “Metro” prepaid plans. Best Buy, Amazon, and B&H will likewise carry the phone.
