OnePlus silently released its cheapest smartphone to date, the Nord N20 SE.
As the name suggests, the OnePlus Nord N20 SE is a cheaper version of the already affordable Nord N20. In fact, judging by its processor of choice and price, this one is positioned in the entry-level market — a territory we haven’t seen OnePlus enter before.
That said, the device is powered by a MediaTek Helio G35 octa-core processor. Not the most powerful nor the latest, but it’s been used on a lot of phones by many brands over the last two years of its existence.
This model comes in a single RAM and storage variant: 4GB/64GB, and comes with a microSD card slot so you can expand the memory by up to 1TB.
On the front, we have a 6.56-inch LCD display. The resolution was not mentioned, but we’re betting it’s only HD+.
A waterdrop notch on top of the screen holds the 8-megapixel front camera, while on the back we have a triple camera setup led by a sharp 50-megapixel main shooter joined by a 2-megapixel depth sensor.
Like a lot of phones today, there’s a 5,000mAh battery onboard with a 33W fast charger to juice it up.
From its design and specs, it appears that the Nord N20 SE is a rebranded version of the recently launched A77 4G from OnePlus’s sister company, OPPO.
The OnePlus Nord N20 SE is currently listed at AliExpress with a price of Php8,343.70-Php10,290.70. Its official release details in the Philippines, if it ever makes it here, are yet to be announced.
