Last year, the OnePlus Nord N100 was among the cheapest smartphones to have a 90Hz display. Now, the company has replaced it with the new Nord N200. The latest OnePlus phone retains most of N100’s specs while adding features like 5G connectivity. In this post, we will look at the specs, features, expected price in Nepal and availability of the OnePlus Nord N200 5G.
OnePlus Nord N200 5G Overview:
5G and Performance
OnePlus Nord N200 5G replaces Nord 10 5G as the brand’s cheapest 5G offering, all thanks to the Snapdragon 480 SoC. This chipset was launched last year to make 5G more accessible. It comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X51 5G modem, which we can found in the more expensive silicons like Snapdragon 690. The phone will work with T-Mobile’s 5G network in the US.
Manufactured under an 8nm process, it has a dual-cluster CPU arrangement with 2x Cortex-A76 (@2.0GHz) and 6x Cortex-A55 (@1.8GHz) cores. Handling the graphics is Adreno 619. With all this, it boasts 100% improved performance over Snapdragon 460-powered Nord N100.
OnePlus has paired this chipset with 4GB LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB UFS 2.1 storage. The latter is expandable up to 256GB via a MicroSD card. In terms of software, the phone boots on OxygenOS based on Android 11.
Design and Display
OnePlus Nord N200 5G features a 6.49-inch LCD panel. Unlike last year, the 90Hz is explicitly mentioned in the specs sheet. In addition, the resolution has been scaled up to 2400 x 1080 pixels.
Likewise, the phone sports a rectangular camera bump at the back with a OnePlus logo in the center. For biometrics, there’s a fingerprint scanner on the side.

As with the recent affordable 5G phones in the market, OnePlus has not prioritized cameras here. In fact, the company has left the triple camera setup of the N100 untouched. Thus, you get a 13MP primary, accompanied by two 2MP sensors for macro and B&W shots. Plus, there’s a 16MP camera in the front for selfies and video calls.
Rest of the specs
Aside from that, the phone supports dual-band Wi-Fi and pairs with accessories via Bluetooth 5.1. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack as well, like on the new OnePlus Nord CE 5G. Nord N200 gets its fuel from a 5000mAh battery, which supports 18W fast charging via a USB Type-C adapter.
