Before you can even buy it, OnePlus’ latest affordable Nord is out of date

The phone features a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner, a Snapdragon 695 chip, 6GB RAM, and 128GB storage. There’s a microSD card slot, too, so you can expand the storage by up to 512GB if needed. A 4,500mAh battery powers the device, coming with 33W fast charging support that’s enough to top up the cell to 50% in just 30 minutes. The phone’s rear houses a triple-camera setup consisting of a 64MP primary sensor, a 2MP macro, and a monochrome lens — there’s no ultra-wide sensor here.

The OnePlus Nord series contains of the company’s cheap and mid-range phones, which are particularly popular in Asia and Europe. In the United States, the business also sells a limited number of Nord cellphones. It introduced the Nord N200 as a low-cost 5G option on T-network Mobile’s last year. OnePlus has unveiled the Nord N20 5G as its affordable option for the US and Canadian markets in 2022, which will be free if you add a line or $282 if you don’t. This year’s phone appears to be a mid-range smartphone rather than a bargain one when compared to prior iterations.


  • The Nord N20 will be available on Metro and T-Mobile’s networks starting April 28 in the US, available free when you add a line (via 24 months of bill credits) or it can be purchased outright for $282 or financed at $11.75 a month (over 24 months). Best Buy, Amazon, and other retailers will also eventually begin selling the phone in the US in the summer.

  • Judging from the specs, it is clear that the Nord N20 is a sister variant of the Nord CE 2 Lite with some minor downgrades. The latter is due to launch in India later this month. The Nord N20 runs the Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 and not Android 12. There’s no word on when an update to Android 12 will arrive, either. Previous Nord phones in the US received only one OS update, so it is possible Android 12 could be the first and last OS update for the N20.
