Rumors indicate that the OnePlus Nord N100 is powered by a Snapdragon 460 SoC with a 6.52-inch screen at HD+ resolution. According to rumors, it will receive a standard 60 Hz display, although the company had previously promised to equip all smartphones with screens with a frequency of at least 90 Hz.
Also, the OnePlus Nord N100 smartphone is credited with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory, a 5000 mAh battery and a 13-megapixel camera. There will be three camera sensors, judging by the render. The rear panel also houses a fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus will introduce the OnePlus 9 much earlier than expected
A number of online sources have suggested that Samsung is preparing to announce the flagship Galaxy S21 series about a month earlier than usual. Now a message has come that OnePlus intends to follow the same path. In particular, the premiere of the OnePlus 9 may take place as early as March 2021. As a rule, the company previously preferred to show its flagships in May or June. But in the case of the OnePlus 8, it moved away from that tradition and premiered it in mid-April. And if the latest predictions come true, then the OnePlus 9 will appears even earlier.
Why is the company in a hurry with the announcement? There may be several reasons. One of them is to participate in the leveraging of the share of Huawei, whose influence and presence in the market will weaken. There is also speculation that the company itself is aware that with the OnePlus 8T it offered a weak upgrade and that the smartphone is unlikely to get big sales. So, they need to hurry up with the release of a new generation of flagships so as not to lose potential buyers.
What the company will do with the release of the OnePlus 9, we will find out next year. And this month we can see two more new smartphones: OnePlus N10 and OnePlus N100. The first model should be the version of OnePlus Nord for the US market with the Snapdragon 690 chip, while the second will take the place of the company’s most affordable device and offer the Snapdragon 460 processor.
