OnePlus downgrades the Nord N20 5G’s AMOLED screen


The company had to make a choice


After the original OnePlus Nord skipped North America, the company introduced two cheaper Nord devices — the N10 5G and the N100 — in the US late last year. We saw leaks revealing some specs of a successor to the N10. Now we have even more details from official channels about what to expect.

Previously leaked details for the OnePlus Nord N20 5G suggested the device would have a 6.43-inch AMOLED screen with an in-display fingerprint scanner, but there was no word on the refresh rate. According to an exclusive interview with PCMag, we now have confirmation that the device will have a 60Hz refresh rate instead of 90. OnePlus said it was a choice between 60Hz AMOLED and 90Hz LCD for the price point, and it opted for the former. It’s a shame considering the N10 5G had 90Hz, but we’ll let you decide if you prefer the higher refresh rate over the true blacks of the superior display tech.

The company confirmed that the new Nord device would support SuperVooc fast charging. Exact speed hasn’t been revealed, but 30W seems likely, judging by the N10’s Warp Charge 30T. OnePlus has also released official images for PCMag, and they look very similar to the CAD renders we saw from OnLeaks a while back. The device features a flat back with two large main camera lenses and the OnePlus logo on the back. However, it appears to have a two-tone back.

According to the report, OnePlus hasn’t said whether the Nord N20 5G will actually launch a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G processor, as previous rumors have suggested. Likewise, we’ll have to rely on previous leaks for other details. For example, the camera setup is rumored to use a 48MP main shooter with an 8MP ultrawide lens. The device will also likely get 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and may launch with OxygenOS 11, a full generation behind.

The OnePlus Nord N20 is expected to arrive later this month.
