OnePlus has been busy creating a variety of phones in 2022, with handsets available for most people’s budgets. To continue this trend, the company is releasing a successor to its popular OnePlus Nord N10 5G, which first made its debut back in November 2020.
We’ve gathered together all the latest news and rumours about the new budget phone, so here’s our guide to the OnePlus Nord N20 5G.
When will the OnePlus Nord N20 be released?
The OnePlus Nord N20 is now confirmed to launch in the US on 28 April.
The launch has so far only been confirmed for North America though, and it’s possible – perhaps even likely – that the N20 will turn out to be an American exclusive.
How much will the OnePlus Nord N20 5G cost?
That actually comes from the calculation that you can grab it on a plan from $11.75 a month for 24 months, so the retail price may be slightly different if and when the phone arrives at other retailers.
To put it in context, here’s how a few other affordable OnePlus devices line-up:
- OnePlus Nord N100: £179/€199/$179.99 (approx ₹18,165)
- OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G: £299/€349/₹24,999 (approx $395)
- OnePlus Nord 2 5G: £399/€499/₹29,999 (approx $525)
What are the OnePlus Nord N20 specs and features?
OnePlus has now confirmed the full specs of the Nord N20, which offers decent performance for the price – at least on paper.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 695 chipset, along with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Notably, the 695 includes support for 5G connectivity.
A 4500mAh battery is backed up by 33W wired charging.
The 6.4in screen is OLED, which is welcome, but is limited to 60Hz refresh rate. It does offer full HD 1080p resolution at least though, along with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
As for the camera, there’s a 64Mp main lens, backed up by a pair of monochrome and macro sensors.
Probably the biggest downside is that the N20 launches with Android 11. While it will likely be upgraded to Android 12 eventually, it’s launching behind the curve and we’re not sure how many Android version updates the phone will receive across its lifetime.
