Nord N100 Display
Though the company committed to baking high refresh rate displays into all its new phones going forward, that does not seem to be the case with the Nord N100. This is the company’s first entry-level device and includes a 6.52-inch HD+ LCD display with a standard 60Hz refresh rate. You have a bigger chin at the bottom and a punch-hole cutout with an 8MP selfie camera at the top left onboard here.
Under the hood, OnePlus Nord N100 is powered by the Snapdragon 460 chipset. It is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage (expandable up to 256GB via a dedicated microSD card slot). You will also find a massive 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast-charging support. It runs Android 10-based OxygenOS 10.5 as well. We will have to get our hands on the device to know if there’s any bloatware on board to offset the price or not.
As for the triple rear-camera array, you have a 13MP primary camera (as opposed to 48MP or 64MP sensors), a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro lens. It would have been great if the company included an ultra-wide sensor onboard. Then, Nord N100 would have brought some versatility on the photography front for entry-level users.
