Design and Display
In comparison with the design/build on the more premium 8T and also the pioneering OnePlus Nord, it’s worthy to note that enthusiasts will be getting plastic on the rear and on the frame on the Nord N10 5G, as opposed to aluminum and glass.
On the rear, we have got a square camera module housing four cameras and an LED flash. Also on the rear is a capacitive fingerprint sensor and the OnePlus mascot and branding, which indicates it’s a OnePlus smartphone.
Making a flip to get the features on the front panel, we discover a 6.49-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 X 2400, a density of 405 PPI, and a 90Hz refresh rate.
Much like it’s less premium sibling, the OnePlus Nord N100, enthusiasts who desire the Nord N10 5G will have just one colour option and that’s Midnight ice.
Despite being a more affordable Android smartphone, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G manages to pull up with an impressive camera setup, so much so that it bears a bigger primary rear camera.
The camera department comprises four cameras on the rear that includes a 64MP primary with an aperture of f/1.79, an 8MP Ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.25, a 2MP macro camera with an aperture of f/2.4, and a 2MP monochrome f/2.4.
This rear camera setup is capable of video maxed out at 4k at 30fps. Please refer to the spec shit below for the other video recording modes.
