- A leak claims OnePlus will be releasing a Nord phone in the US, the N10 5G, by the end of 2020.
- It would be the first OnePlus phone with a 64 megapixel camera and still have a 90 Hz display.
- It would use the slower Snapdragon 690 to go below $ 400.
OnePlus wasn’t shy when it came to bringing future North phones to the US. However, now we might have an idea of what this means. A Android Central Source claims to have details of the first U.S.-bound model, the Nord N10 5G.
Like its international counterpart, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G would have a roughly 6.5-inch display with 1080p and 90 Hz. However, it would make some compromises. You’d get a 64-megapixel main camera on the back – one of the first in a OnePlus phone – but would have to get by with the Snapdragon 690 instead of the 765G in the current Nord.
You will also find an 8MP wide angle rear camera and two 2MP sensors (possibly for macro shots and portraits). The base model will start with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, similar to the existing Nord.

OnePlus code had previously pointed out a Nord with a Snapdragon 690, but did not link it to a US model.
The lower-priced snapdragon can be the key to price. OnePlus is believed to be targeting a price below $ 400 for the Nord N10 5G, which makes it cheaper than the typical price for the phone you can buy today. This could be crucial if OnePlus has to compete against a multitude of key devices in this price range, such as Apple’s iPhone SE and Google’s Pixel 4a.
There is no indication of when the Nord 10 5G might arrive, provided the leak is correct. AC speculated that there might be a release shortly after the OnePlus 8T debuted. Since many assume that the 8T will premiere in late September or early October, a launch in mid-fall could be considered.
