OnePlus has announced two new smartphones in its Nord range: the N10 5G, and the N100.

The Nord N10 5G, which OnePlus touts as the “most accessible premium 5G experience”, comes with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, as well as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 690 chipset.

It also has a 6.49-inch FHD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate, and a 4300mAh battery equipped with fast-charging capabilities.

While the original Nord had an in-screen fingerprint scanner, the Nord N10 5G has one on the back of the device similar to the Pixel 5.

It also has dual stereo speakers, which the original Nord lacked.

With regards to the camera, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G comes with a 64MP main lens, an 8MP 119-degree ultra-wide lens, a 2MP macro lens for small-scale detail and a 2MP monochrome lens for depth.

The selfie camera, meanwhile, has a 16MP resolution, housed in a holepunch notch.

The N100, meanwhile, is the lowest-priced Nord device, but is better than its siblings in some respects.

It comes with a 6.52-inch display, larger than the N10 5G, and has a bigger batter at 5000mAh (albeit one that charges more slowly, with only an 18W fast-charge capability compared to the 30W on the N10 5G).

Inside, the N100 uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 chipset, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, expandable via a MicroSD card.

It has a 13MP main camera, a 2MP macro lens, and another 2MP bokeh lens for depth. The front-facing camera has an 8MP resolution.

Both devices charge via USB-C, have 3.5mm headphone jacks, and run Android 10 with OxygenOS – OnePlus’ Android skin - layered over the top.

The OnePlus Nord N100 will be available for £179 from 10 November, while OnePlus Nord N10 5G will cost £329, with a release date later in November.

Notably, both devices will also eventually hit North America, although OnePlus did not say when they would be making their debut.
