Pete Lau sat down with PCMag to speak in regards to the subsequent funds telephone within the OnePlus Nord line often known as the OnePlus Nord N200. It might be a direct follow-up to final yr’s OnePlus Nord N100, which was, on the time, the corporate’s most cost-effective and lowest-powered telephone ever.
As one would anticipate, the Nord N200 doesn’t stray too removed from the mould of the N100. However, Lau says it incorporates at the least two options that the N100 lacked: an FHD+ show and 5G help.

At first look, the Nord N200 appears to crib from the Samsung Galaxy S21 in addition to the OnePlus 8T.

Do word that the OnePlus Nord N100 (and its costlier sibling, the Nord N10) was additionally an Oppo rebrand.
As such, this telephone doesn’t function the long-lasting alert slider we affiliate with extra premium OnePlus units. If OnePlus sticks with its straight rebrand technique, the specs of the A93 counsel the Nord N200 would have microSD card help, a headphone jack, a 48MP major digicam sensor supported by two 2MP depth sensors, a big 5,000mAh battery, and a Snapdragon 480 chipset. However, these inner specs is likely to be barely totally different for the OnePlus Nord N200.
