When Will The Cheap 5G Phones from OnePlus Become Available in The US

As 2021 began, more and more phones will be joining the ‘5G devices club’. The most recent proof comes from OnePlus, one of the Chinese phone manufacturers that proved a lot of exciting stuff in recent years. 2020 marked the first surge in 5G devices, and 2021 will perhaps consolidate the new technology as a standard.

If you remember the Nord N10 5G and N100 phones created by OnePlus, it means that you have decent tastes in smartphones. The two devices are far from landing into the high-end category, but they can still get the job done if you don’t have high expectations from a 5G phone.

Nord N10 5G and N100 arrive in the US on January 15

OnePlus brought the big news of the arrival of its cheap 5G phones on the American market. While the N10 5G model costs $299, the N100 phone is worth $179. Those willing to get their hands on any of the two OnePlus models will have that chance at 10 a.m. Eastern on January 15. T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile will also be offering both phones, and there’s even the chance of getting the devices from OnePlus directly.

Pete Lau, the CEO of OnePlus, declared:

The OnePlus Nord N Series represents the next step in our strategy to expand our smartphone offerings to more price points,

Now even more users can get a burdenless experience without sacrificing quality.

Specs for N10 5G and N100

Nord N10 features the Snapdragon 690 chipset, 6GB of RAM, a 64 MP main camera, and a 6.49-inch Full HD display with a refresh rate of 90Hz for the highlights.

N100 is the weaker model, as it packs the Snapdragon 460 chipset, 4GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel main camera on the rear, and a 6.52-inch HD+ display as the most important specs.
