OnePlus’ Nord series is expected to make the brand more accessible to consumers who prefer not to smash hundreds of dollars on a high-end phone. A successor to the Nord N10 5G which launched in October for 350 euros is already on its way, via OnLeaks we already have a first look at the design of ‘Ebba’.
OnePlus Nord N1 5G
The Nord range now consists of three phones, the OnePlus Nord, North N10 5G and the cheapest device, the Nord N100. With this series of products, OnePlus wants to deliver the performance that consumers are accustomed to from the brand, without charging premium prices. OnePlus’ Nord N100, for example, sells for 149 euros, making it the entry-level model. Just above, the Nord N10 5G is priced at 299 euros. For the latter device, OnePlus would run on a successor, as shown last month from a tweet from Max Jambor.
Steve Hemmerstoffer, a trusted rumor maker known as OnLeaks, confirms these rumors of a successor to the Nord N10 5G with four renderings of the alleged OnePlus Ebba. In Hemmerstoffer’s CAD-based renderings, we see a OnePlus phone with a flat screen and a glossy back, which is presumably made of plastic. OnLeaks says about the screen that it’s probably 6.49-inch diagonal and has a hole-punch notch in it.
The 3.5mm port is retained
On the back of the successor to the OnePlus Nord N10 5G, which will likely be sold as the Nord N1 5G, we also see a camera module with three sensors in vertical orientation. In addition to the 3 sensors, we also find space in the module for the LED flash.
From the back, we look to the bottom of the Nord N1 5G, where there’s room for a USB-C port, the speaker, and a 3.5mm audio port. On the sides of the N1 you’ll find the fingerprint reader (right), along with the power button and volume buttons (left). OnePlus would have made the frame of the Ebba in metal, explains OnLeaks.
Launch OnePlus Nord N1 5G
For the design of the successor to the N10 5G, OnePlus seems to be conservative with it. Perhaps the focus is more on the specs of the Nord N1, but given our experience with the Nord N10 5G, it’s doubtful that a spec upgrade is enough to allow the N1 to play in the midrange segment.
It is not known when OnePlus plans to introduce the successor to the Nord N10. Given that the manufacturer will present the Series 9 on March 23, it seems unlikely that another OnePlus event will take place in the “ short term ”. At the same time, it seems unlikely to us that the Nord N1 5G will launch in October, a year after the launch of the Nord N10 5G and N100, given that the first renderings have since leaked and development is now at a stage. advanced. .
