The sequel to the OnePlus for the Nord N100 may be one of its best values - if in part to deal with earlier criticisms. The head of the company Pete Lau told PCMag in an interview that the Nord N200 5G (shown below) will be the most affordable 5G phone to date, priced below $ 250 in the US. Plus, you won’t have to settle for a 720p 90Hz screen from the N100. The N200 will accelerate to a 6.5-inch 1080p 90Hz LCD, matching the visuals of the more expensive N10.
The company also provided a teaser image for the N200 5G and you won’t be surprised to hear that the design takes up more than a few replicas of the OnePlus 9 series. The most remarkable thing is that you will see a more noticeable impact on the camera. There are still three sensors for the rear camera (plus a camera for perforation at the front), but there is also no dimple on the back. OnePlus did not say where to expect the reader, but it may be hidden in the power button, not in the display.
OnePlus has not yet provided most of the specifications or release date of the N200 5G. However, this initial wave of information suggests that the company will throw out more details (as it often does) to launch in the near future.
The N200 may be more convincing if the performance otherwise matches the upgrade hardware. However, OnePlus may not have much choice. The new phone will have much fiercer competition around its price point, including Samsung’s A32 5G in North America, as well as international competitors such as Realme 8 5G. OnePlus just can’t afford to slip, especially when its image revolves around delivering powerful hardware for less money.
