OnePlus is set to launch the OnePlus 8T smartphone and the OnePlus Buds Z TWS earbuds on October 14. According to the famed leakster @Onleaks, the company is reportedly planning to debut two new smartphones under the Nord series by the end of this month. The all-new OnePlus Nord N10 5G & Nord N100 smartphones will officially launch on October 26.
This new leak comes just a week after the company teased the launch of a new Nord smartphone with the hashtag #ComingSoon. As per the leaks, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G will be the first affordable OnePlus smartphone to launch in the US. The previously launched OnePlus Nord, powered by snapdragon 765G, is only available in Europe and India.

Notably, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G will also be one of the first smartphones to sport the newly announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 mobile platform. If you didn't know, the Snapdragon 690 is the first Snapdragon 6-series chipset with a built-in 5G modem. It is rumored to sport a 6.49-inch display with Full HD+ resolution and 90Hz high refresh rate.
On the rear, it will feature a 64MP primary camera. The Nord N10 5G will at least come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It is also rumored to cost under $400 in the US. At that price, the device might miss out on the mmWave support for using it with Verizon's ultra-fast 5G network.
Coming to the OnePlus Nord N100, it will be a sub-$200 smartphone with entry-level specifications. It will likely come with a 6.52-inch waterdrop notch display with HD+ resolution. Under the hood, it includes Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz.

The main highlight of the device will be its huge 6,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. The triple camera setup on the rear will include a 13-megapixel primary sensor and two 2-megapixel sensors. Like the original OnePlus Nord, the low-cost Nord N100 might be limited to India and Europe.
Also, the company has officially confirmed to launch the OnePlus 8T with Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 out of the box. While there is no confirmation, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G & Nord N100 launching at a later date could also come with Android 11 out of the box.
During the OnePlus 8T launch on October 14, the company might officially announce the launch date of these smartphones. Since the launch date is just a couple of weeks away, there should be more leaks popping out in the coming days. Stay tuned!
