What’s the difference between OnePlus Nord N20 and Nord N10

In terms of pricing, the OnePlus Nord N20 5G is comparable to the 2020 Nord N10 5G but a little more expensive than the Nord N200. The difference between the Nord N10 starts with the display where the refresh rate is reduced to 60Hz from 90Hz while adding an under-display fingerprint sensor. Noticeably, the new device also gets a triple-camera setup compared with the quad-camera of its predecessor.

The rest of the specs of the Nord N20 include a faster Snapdragon 695 chipset, 128 GB on-board storage, 6 GB of RAM, and 4500 mAh battery. Because of the more efficient processor, the OnePlus Nord N20 offers longer battery life than most mid-range smartphones. OnePlus is yet to announce when you should expect an Android 12 update to the Nord N20 as the device still runs on Android 11 OS out-of-the-box.
