After many rumors and leaks, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G went officially in India. The device is an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and is marginally below the OnePlus Nord due to an inferior Snapdragon 750G. Apparently, it will not be the last OnePlus Nord smartphone coming this month. According to recent reports, OnePlus will introduce the OnePlus Nord N200 in the US and Canada on June 15. The device will come to succeed the budget-oriented OnePlus N100. However, this time around, it will pack 5G capabilities.
Today, the OnePlus Nord N200 had some of its schematics revealed by the US FCC website. The device has two variants with model numbers DE2117 and DE2118. The listing reveals the various bands and connectivity options these two variants will support. Both devices are OnePlus Nord N200 5G, however, each one will go for a specific country. Interestingly, a device with these characteristics already visited the Bluetooth SIG certification. So its release seems to be imminent at this point.
OnePlus Nord N200 alleged specifications
According to previously leaked specifications, the OnePlus Nord N200 5G will flaunt a 6.49-inch IPS LCD with a Full HD+ resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels. Interestingly, the resolution is a major upgrade in comparison to the Nord N100 that only had an HD+ screen. Another curious fact about this handset was the fact that it secretly came with a 90Hz refresh rate. OnePlus didn’t make any buzz when the Nord N100 was released and made us believe that it had only a 60Hz refresh rate, but the first tests proved it had a 90Hz screen. The Nord N200 will follow in the high-refresh-rate terrain with the very same 90Hz.
The OnePlus Nord N200 will carry a side-mounted fingerprint scanner which is a major change in comparison to its predecessor. We expect OnePlus entry-level smartphone to carry a huge battery like its predecessor. Perhaps something bigger than 5,000mAh and with 18W charging at the very least. The device may come in variants with 4GB and 6GB of RAM with 64GB and 128GB of Internal Storage. It may also come with a microSD card slot for further memory expansion. The chipset giving 5G capabilities remains a mystery right now. The last year’s model had the Snapdragon 460 at the helm, and OnePlus can keep its partnership with Qualcomm bringing a Snapdragon 480 5G this time around. However, it may also surprise us with a Dimensity 700 chip.
