OnePlus Nord N20 5G is now available in the US unlocked

Vlad, 27 June 2022

The mid-range smartphone space in the US is a joke compared to the rest of the world, given that brands which are traditionally powerful in this area are simply missing - think Xiaomi/Redmi/Poco, Realme, and so on. Thus, the landscape is pretty barren - and in this barren landscape OnePlus is making a nice buck for itself with the Nord N series.

The Nord N20 5G launched back in April on T-Mobile, and the exclusivity has finally run out. You can now purchase a OnePlus Nord N20 5G in unlocked form from OnePlus itself or Best Buy. Amazon should join the party as well at some point later tonight.

You'll need to pay $299 for the privilege of owning one of these, and that nets you the phone with 6B of RAM and 128GB of storage. Note however that the N20 won't work on Verizon, and if you use it on AT&T you'll get 4G only. On T-Mobile and any MVNOs using its network, you'll be able to access 5G as well.

The OnePlus Nord N20 5G comes with a 6.43-inch 1080x2400 60 Hz AMOLED touchscreen, the Snapdragon 695 chipset, a triple rear camera system (64 MP main, 2 MP macro, 2 MP depth), a 16 MP selfie shooter, and a 4,500 mAh battery with 33W fast charging.

With those specs, at that price, it's a good buy in the US (but much less so anywhere else), if you can get past the fact that it runs Android 11, which, in 2022, is just laughable. Anyway, if you're interested to learn more about this device, don't miss our in-depth review.

I really don't understand the SD 695 not being able to record 4k? My moto x 2nd gen from 2014 can record 4k. Does anyone know what was SD's response as to why they don't have 4k?

695 handles well in gaming? well if you meant kids games like mobile legends, free fire, and roblox. it makes sense. yes the only downside is they cant record 4k or 1080 60fps. while sd 678 and 690 has the ability to do that. like the regular redmi n...
