OnePlus entered the budget smartphone market last October Nord N10 5G and Nord N100. Rumor has it that the former will be replaced soon, and now more information has come about that second-generation device.
The replacement name for Nord N10 5G is Nord CE 5G
It was originally intended to be marketed under the name Nord N1 5G released, tipster Max Jambor has announced that OnePlus has abandoned the brand for something completely different. The successor to the OnePlus Nord N10 5G will be launched under the name Nord CE 5G. Why OnePlus has chosen ‘CE’ is unclear, but perhaps the letters mean something related to prices, such as ‘cheap version’ or ‘cost version’.
Nord CE 5G is expected to be offer a 6.5-inch punch hole and three camera settings. In addition, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and a reliable 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The ‘5G’ in the name also refers to 5G network support, which means it can be one the best budget 5G phones at hand. The current generation Nord N10 5G uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 690 chipset, so there is a good chance that OnePlus will choose the Snapdragon 700 series for this phone.
Of course, the brand can also go the other way and opt for the new Snapdragon 480 5G. That chipset would undoubtedly make more sense within the Nord N100. After all, the current model uses the Snapdragon 460.
