The upcoming successor to the OnePlus Nord N10 Mid-range from 2020 was shown in all its glory through some CAD-based renderings. Months have passed and the North N20 is not official yet, but that will change soon.
Today gave OnePlus PCMag The image you can see below is an official render of the device. As usual, the leaks turns out to be spot on – the design here is the same.
Alongside the image, the Chinese company also revealed that the handset would feature SuperVOOC fast charging and released the specs of the Nord N20’s screen. It will be a 60Hz AMOLED panel with an in-display fingerprint sensor. It’s a 6.43-inch screen with FHD+ resolution. Although OnePlus COO Kinder Liu didn’t say it directly, PCMag speculated that it would instead be either that 60Hz AMOLED or a 90Hz LCD panel, and the company opted for the former over the latter.
The Nord N20 seems heavily geared towards the North American market, with Liu saying the screen offers “lower power consumption, as well as better contrast, more vivid colors and a wider color gamut than what’s currently available in the affordable North American market.” .
This focus is no accident: the OnePlus Nord line has been a bestseller since the N10 and at T-Mobile and MetroPCS N100 hit shelves in February last year. OnePlus sold more than 2.5 million Nord phones in the US last year.
Other rumored specs for the Nord N20 that OnePlus would not officially confirm at this point include the Snapdragon 695 SoC, a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, and oddly OxygenOS 11-based on Android 11 on board, although it’s already 2022. In any case, the phone should be available in the US before the end of this month.
