We are busy wrapping up the review of the surprisingly good European OnePlus Nord that is equipped with a Snapdragon 765G processor and a 90Hz AMOLED display, and now there is news about the US variant of the phone. Long story short, the US version looks to offer a lot of value for a sub-$400 price but will make do with the Snapdragon 690 processor instead of the SD765G that is proving so popular in the mid-range segment.
According to Android Central, ‘Billie’ as the US version is called internally, is a bit bigger than the Euro Nord and sports a 6.9-inch display with FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate.
The main differences come in the performance department, with the Snapdragon 765G being replaced by the Snapdragon 690, along with 6GB of RAM instead of the 8GB found on the Euro Nord. It’s not all bad news, though, because even the base model will come with 128GB as standard.
More good news comes in the camera department that receives an upgrade of sorts in the form of a 64GB main sensor that is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a pair of 2MP sensors. This is in contrast to the Euro Nord’s complement of a 48MP camera, an 8MP ultrawide, a 5MP depth sensor, and a dedicated 2MP macro lens.
One further difference comes with the US version being known as the OnePlus N10 5G, instead of ‘Nord’. With many of the affordable 5G handsets in Europe not available in the US, the OnePlus N10 5G will likely be one of the cheaper paths to a 5G future.
