The OnePlus Nord N20, the sequel to the 2020 Nord N10, is official. The new budget phone offers some features usually seen on flagships at a more affordable price.

So, without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about the OnePlus Nord N20.

OnePlus has announced that T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile will be the exclusive carrier partners for the Nord N20. Both phones will be available for purchase from both suppliers starting April 28.

You can buy the Nord N20 later from retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and more. According to T-Mobile, you can get 24 months of the Nord N20 for $11.75 a month, which works out to $282.

The two big camera lenses on the OnePlus Nord N20 look gorgeous. Blue is impressive in photos and renderings. The front of the phone also looks modern, with a punch-hole camera and a flat screen on the front. The chin is huge, but after all this is a cheap phone.

Specifically, that’s what you get with the Nord N20.

Many people will rave about the 6.43-inch AMOLED display, but one of the things we’re most excited about is the 33W fast charging. Other affordable phones like the iPhone SE (2022), Pixel 5a and Galaxy A53 will charge faster than the North N20; the fastest is the 25W A53. The Nord N20 should replenish its 4,500 mAh battery soon.

We haven’t tested a Snapdragon 695-powered phone, so we’re curious to see what the chip can do. It’s an octa-core SoC with a maximum frequency of 2.2 GHz with an X51 5G modem that supports sub-6 GHz and mmWave. You don’t get Wi-Fi 6 on this chip, so it’s still the connection standard reserved for more expensive phones.

The OnePlus Nord N20 also features an in-display fingerprint sensor, further adding to its sleek look. The technology has improved a lot in recent years, but we’re still curious about how fast and accurate the Nord N20’s sensor will be. There’s also a 64MP main, monochrome, and macro lens; there’s no OnePlus 10 Pro-style telephoto option here.

One worrying thing we noticed is that OnePlus says the Nord N20 will launch with Android 11. If this were true, it would be a huge mistake. Android 12 is half a year old, so we think it’s pretty unforgivable that OnePlus will launch a phone in 2022 that’s been a year and a half old with the OS.

The OnePlus Nord N20 looks great on paper and in photos, especially at $282. We’re concerned about the Android 11 issue, especially since the Nord N-series hasn’t gotten as many updates during its lifetime.

Still, the Nord N20 looks set to offer premium looks and some decent specs. We’re curious to see how the Nord N20 stacks up against last year’s $239 OnePlus Nord N200, which is this year’s budget OnePlus phone.

The OnePlus Nord N20 looks quite striking with its two over-sized camera lenses. The blue color is stunning in photos and renders. The front of the phone looks quite modern, too, with a hole-punch front camera and a flat display. There is a sizable chin, but this is a budget phone after all.
As for specs, here’s what you get with the Nord N20.

A lot of people will be excited about the 6.43-inch AMOLED display, but one of the things we’re most excited for is the fast 33W charging. Other affordable phones such as the iPhone SE (2022), Pixel 5a, and Galaxy A53 all charge at speeds less than the Nord N20 — the fastest is the A53 at 25W. The Nord N20 should top off its 4,500 mAh battery pretty quickly.

We haven’t gotten a phone with the Snapdragon 695 in for testing yet, so we’re definitely curious to see what this chip can do. This is an octa-core system-on-chip with a max frequency of 2.2GHz and a X51 5G modem, which supports sub-6GHz and mmWave. You don’t get Wi-Fi 6 on this chip, so that’s a connectivity standard still reserved for the more expensive phones.
The OnePlus Nord N20 also has an in-display fingerprint sensor, further adding to the clean look. This technology has vastly improved in recent years, but we’re nonetheless curious to see how fast and accurate the Nord N20’s sensor will be. There’s also a 64MP main camera, monochrome lens, and macro lens; no OnePlus 10 Pro-style telephoto option here.
One concerning thing we noted is that OnePlus says that the Nord N20 will launch with Android 11. If true, that’s a gross oversight. Android 12 is six months old, so we think it’s pretty inexcusable for OnePlus to launch a phone this far into 2022 with a year-and-a-half old operating system.

The OnePlus Nord N20 looks pretty nice on paper and in photos, especially for $282. We’re worried about the Android 11 thing, especially since the Nord N series doesn’t get that many updates across its lifespan. 
Still, it looks like the Nord N20 will offer a premium look and some decent specs. We’re curious how the Nord N20 will sit compared to the $239 OnePlus Nord N200 from last year, of the Nord N20 is the budget OnePlus phone this year.
