OnePlus continues its attempt to reach more markets as it launches another Nord smartphone. Here’s the MediaTek-powered OnePlus Nord N300.
The OnePlus Nord N300 is powered by the trusty MediaTek Dimensity 810 processor, a popular CPU choice for capable midrange smartphones that want to have 5G connectivity.
Being a budget device, OnePlus had to make a couple of compromises. For one, its 6.56-inch IPS screen only has an HD+ pixel resolution but does come with a fast 90Hz refresh rate.
It also has a more traditional waterdrop notch instead of a cleaner punch-hole cutout for the 8-megapixel selfie camera. On the back, the handset didn’t get to have an ultra-wide lens but does have a 48-megapixel main shooter joined by a 2-megapixel depth sensor.
For a cleaner look, we have the fingerprint scanner on the side that also works as a lock/power button. As a cherry on top, the Nord N300 managed to have a 33W fast charger for its 5,000mAh battery. What’s more, it ships with the latest Android 13-based OxygenOS.
The OnePlus Nord N300 only comes in a single 4GB/64GB RAM and storage configuration for a price of USD228 (around Php13,400). It will be available in the United States via Metro and T-Mobile come November 3. Release details in the Philippines are yet to be known.
