Rumor has it that OnePlus is working on a new mid-range Nord phone and that the device will arrive in the US later this year. The Nord N10 5G will be powered by the Snapdragon 690 chipset, have a 64MP rear-facing camera and will cost less than $400, an insider source told Android Central.

Initially, OnePlus focused solely on flagship phones, like the OnePlus 8, but with the recent $500 Nord, the company dipped its toes into the mid-range. Nord phones are meant to offer flagship features for less money, and as Engadget’s Mat Smith wrote before, the compromises are almost invisible. While the original Nord was never meant for the US, the company said it planned to eventually sell a mid-range device in the States.

The OnePlus Nord N10 5G (apparently called Billie internally) will have a 6.49-inch display, a 90Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution, Android Central reports. The base variant will ship with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. In addition to the 64MP camera, the N10 5G will have an 8MP wide-angle lens and two 2MP auxiliary sensors.

We’re not sure exactly when the Nord N10 5G will launch, but it should arrive this year. Supposedly, OnePlus is also working on a new flagship model, the OnePlus 8T, and a $200 entry-level phone, the Clover, that could also land in the US.
