After much anticipation and leaks, OnePlus launched the budget 5G smartphones N10 and N100 under its Nord line of devices. Now, we have words about the successor to the Nord N10 hitting the market later this year.
Proposed by trusted insider Max Jambor, the next Nord device will be called the Nord N1 and will succeed the Nord N10, which is currently available in the US and UK. Jambor says that China-based smartphone makers will launch the device this year, but not in the next few months.
Looking at the launch timeline of the previous Nord 10 and N100 devices, the insider said that the Nord N1 will launch in the second half of 2021. There are no details on its specifications or price, however.
Previously, Jambor also said that the company will launch another device under the Nord series called Nord SE this year. We also saw a report late last year that claimed the same thing and added that the device will come with a 65W charger.
For now, OnePlus is said to be focusing more on the launch of its OnePlus 9 series of smartphones. Based on previous rumors and leaks, the company is surprisingly looking to launch three new devices this year. These include the regular OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, which we’ve already seen in numerous renders and supposed hands-on images, and a budget OnePlus 9 Lite or 9E, probably with a low-end processor.
According to previous reports, OnePlus is aiming to launch the upcoming OnePlus 9 series as soon as possible this year. A report stated that the company will announce the devices sometime in mid-March 2021. However, there are no official words from the company regarding the launch event, as of now.
