When does the OnePlus Nord N100 launch?
As the rumours predicted, OnePlus announced both the OnePlus Nord N100 and the Nord N10 5G simultaneously on 26 October.
While a release in the US is expected (unlike the original Nord), currently we only know when the phone goes on sale in the UK and Europe, with a promised pre-order date of 4 November and the phone becoming available to buy as of 16 November.
How much does the OnePlus Nord N100 cost?
At £179 in the UK (€199 in Europe and approximately $235 in the US), the Nord N100 undercuts the £200 OnePlus X to land the title of the company’s most affordable phone ever.
As such, it’ll have to face up against the likes of its doppelgänger, the Oppo A53, as well as entries in our Best Budget Phone chart; like the fresh-faced Realme 7 and Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 9.
UK retailers include John Lewis, Amazon, OnePlus.com and Three. We’ll update this feature concerning international pricing and availability when we know more.
What features does the OnePlus Nord N100 offer?
For the price, you forgo 5G, as on its launch sibling, but the phone still packs a promising Snapdragon 400 series processor to keep its big-screened user experience ticking over, as well as a sizeable 5000mAh battery and a triple-camera setup.

No mention of NFC is a bit of a disappointment on first impressions but dual stereo speakers and expandable memory are surprising inclusions for both the price and the brand respectively.
We gave our initial impressions of both the N100 and its N10 sibling on our podcast, Fast Charge, so watch that right here if you want to know what we think:
