Finally we find out officially OnePlus Nord CE, the new mid-range exponent and to all intents and purposes successor of the North N10 5G, inheriting its target market.

So let's see what are the news of OnePlus, between technical data, price and availability.

The device has a display on its side AMOLED da 6,43 "Full HD + (2400 x 1080 pixels) in 20: 9 with a density of 410 PPI and Ambient mode. This is a big step up from the N10 and N100, both of which have LCD panels. For the refresh rate, it goes up from 60 to 90 Hz, just like the first generation North.
The body measures 159,2 x 73,5 x 7,9 mm for a weight of 170 g and includes a sensor ID under the display (peculiarity for AMOLED) and not lateral as the power button has a standard conformation. OnePlus has decided to continue with the glossy plastic for the back cover and a metal frame.
