OnePlus Nord N10 & Nord N100
The OnePlus Nord N10 5G & Nord N100 have been finally launched after weeks of rumors and spec-leaks. The latest additions would add fuel to the mid-range ride of the company.

The Nord N10 has 5G support and a whooping 90Hz display. On the other hand, the Nord N100, has usual 4G LTE and the standard LCD panel. Both the N10 5G and the N100 boast of octa-core processors and stereo speakers.

Launch in India
Both OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 are set for initial launch across Europe and yet there are no official details confirming launch in India. However, if one analyses the company’s way of dealing with the Indian market and the rise in sales of mid-range phones in India, it is almost sure that these new models would also make their way to the Indian market.
The OnePlus Nord N10 5G is priced at GBP 329 (approx. Rs. 32,000) for the sole 6GB RAM + 128GB storage model. On the other hand, the Nord N100 has a price tag of GBP 179 (approx. Rs. 17,300) for the lone 4GB RAM + 64GB storage model.
As the holiday seasons are about to start across the globe, latest tech-products would storm into markets (do see: PlayStation 5: Gaming Console Fit to Carry on the Legacy and Xbox Series X & Series S: Microsoft’s Coupled Console War). OnePlus would also look to take advantage of the time and make gold of it, with the launch of these models.
OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau stated that, “the OnePlus Nord N Series represents the next step in our strategy to expand our smartphone offerings to more price points. Now even more users can get a burden-less experience without sacrificing quality”.
