Here's your first look at the OnePlus Nord N200 5G

This is OnePlus's cheapest 5G phone yet.

What you need to know

  • OnePlus today shared the first concrete details of the OnePlus Nord N200 5G.
  • It'll come to the U.S. and Canada later this year for $250.
  • With this release, OnePlus will also fix some flaws of the earlier Nord N100, including a better display.

After teasing the phone in late May, the company today announced (via an interview with PCMag), the OnePlus Nord N200 5G. Little is known about the phone at ts stage, what we do know is that it offers 5G, that it has a 90Hz smooth display, and that it'll be pretty cheap at $250. The screen will get slightly smaller at 6.49-inches, but it'll be a lot better in quality with a new 1080p display. The display was one of the weakest points of OnePlus's older Nord N100, so it's great to see it being tackled with this new model.

The company also shared a render showing the camera layout. OnePlus will equip the phone with a hole punch front-facing camera and a triple rear camera layout. While the company did not share the precise specs, we can expect it to be the typical 48MP main camera paired with two weaker cameras ranging between 13 MP to 2MP, as is the custom with phones of this price range.

Speaking to PCMag via email, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said:

From the premium and ultra-premium OnePlus 9 series to the OnePlus Nord N200 5G—our newest and most affordable 5G device ever—we're providing more choices and easier access to 5G for our users.

The Nord N200 5G will find a competitor in Samsung's A22 5G. The company announced its own cheapest 5G phone last week, and it'll be coming to the UK around the summer and the U.S. probably around the same time. OnePlus's phone seems well designed to compete with it on pricing, but the company has yet to share more concrete launch dates.

The OnePlus Nord N100 was one of the best cheap Android phones of last year and sold really well at MetroPCs and T-Mobile. The company is likely hoping to keep some of that momentum going as it continues its journey from a niche enthusiast brand to a more mainstream one that can trade blows with a behemoth like Samsung. If only it could update its phones like one too.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

Review: The Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) is a truly moving Alexa speaker

This new Echo Show is a real head-turner. The smart speaker market has grown quite a bit since Amazon introduced the first Echo in late 2014. However, after introducing the first Echo Show in 2017, the evolution of smart screened devices hasn't progressed nearly so quickly. There have mostly been incremental updates to the devices put out by Amazon, Google, and others like Lenovo, adding bigger screens and (marginally) better speakers, but nothing has really moved the category forward. As it has done several times before, Amazon is poised to usher in the next paradigm shift in smart speaker tech with its latest Echo device, the Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen). I've had the pleasure of using just about every Alexa and Google Assistant-enabled smart speaker over the past few years, so I feel well-suited to write this Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) review based on that background. I'm not going to get too far into the argument of which smart assistant is better — by now, you've

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. Samsung's bes

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.
