OnePlus is expanding its Nord series lineup with the launch of the new OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 smartphones. Similar to the OnePlus Nord that was launched in July, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G supports 5G connectivity while the OnePlus Nord N100 has 4G LTE connectivity option. However, both smartphones include a single selfie camera housed inside the hole-punch cutout at the top left corner of the front panel. The new OnePlus phones also have a fingerprint sensor at the back panel.
Prices and availability
The OnePlus Nord N10 5G and the OnePlus Nord N100 will initially rollout in the European markets, and the company is yet to announce their global availability details even for India.

The new OnePlus smartphones are also expected to debut in North America as the OnePlus Nord did not launch there.

The OnePlus Nord N10 5G comes in Midnight Ice finish, and the Nord N100 has a Midnight Frost colour option. Both the smartphones are up for pre-booking via OnePlus UK website.
