The device has quad rear cameras with a 64-megapixel main sensor, 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, a macro camera, and another monochrome camera. Other features include a 4,300mAh battery with 30W fast charging and a rear fingerprint reader.

This device is priced at $300 full price/unlocked and $12.50/month at T-Mobile. Pricing on Metro has not yet been revealed.


Nord N100

The Nord N100 comes with a 6.5-inch display. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor with 4GB of RAM, 64GB onboard storage, and a microSD card slot for memory expansion.

    Waiting patiently for OnePlus 9 Pro with the flat screen…

    • roger shahan

      Yes ! After having cracked my Mclaren by dropping it onto concrete face down from a 1-2 foot drop that’s some BS I will never buy another curved screen phone again

  • Fan_Atl77

    And, it is posted on Tmobile online site, Nord N10 5G with a promotion:

    Get one FREE when, Add a new line to your eligible plan.
    Purchase a new OnePlus Nord N10 5G on a monthly payment plan and pay applicable sales tax on pre-credit price.
    Receive 24 monthly bill credits totaling $299.99.

    • PiCASSiMO

      New line is about $20 + taxes per month. For 24 months, that adds up to $480. You are better off buying the phone for $300 and saving $180. Unless you need that additional line…

      • Fan_Atl77

        Simply said, thank you, I like your numbers and your recommendation…

    The t-mobile OnePlus 8t is receiving today January 5, the update ☝️

  • riverhorse

    Super. Besides only UFS 2.1 and no WiFi 6 has pretty much everything. And if Metro price is lower, booyah.
    It almost seems too good to be true- as if it will more resemble a buggy ZTE.

    • marque2

      WiFi 6 is still pretty rare. Probably not a problem. Most often the wifi issue is in apartments where you might have 20 Wifi routers in contention, and most folks there haven’t moved up to 5g – so 5g isn’t full yet. (Note I have helped several people now who have up to 1ghz internet and wonder why they can’t seem to watch netflix without stutter at the apartment. It is because they have so much contention at 2.4 ghz that the stream is less than 10mb/s. Switching to 5g always solves the problem.

      • riverhorse

        So many great or top features abound that i mentioned the two that weren’t as an fyi.
        Will the recent auction help WiFi more?
        But zero complaints given the price. In fact I’m paranoid there’s something I’m overlooking it’s not such a great phone for some reason & I’m the only one who doesn’t get it.
        It’s either this or the A71 5G.

        • marque2

          Three things I notice, One is the Snapdragon 6xx series CPU, 8xx is top end 7xx is upper middle, 6xx is lower middle, 4xx is cheap. So the phone will be a bit slower – similar speed to a 5 year old high end phone.

          Also the phone says it is FHD and most top end phones are UHD (4k). I would also guess, it has 60 hz refresh instead of 90 or 120

          Also most top end phones have an OLED screen, this seems to be the more traditional LCD so color won’t be as saturated.

          And don’t get me wrong, not bashing the phone, I bet it is a decent phone for most people – but those are the features I see that were cut back to make the phone more affordable. Also others have dropped the UHD, and lowered refresh to save power since 5g increases batter draw considerably – so that isn’t such a bad drop. (Who can really see the difference between 1080p and 4k on a 6ish inch screen anyway)

        • riverhorse

          It is 90hz. Everything else you’re spot on.
          Re the processor, i figure UFS (instead of emm) + plenty of storage & ram is sufficiently compensatory for those who don’t game?
          Re Oled & 4K, they haven’t even given us FHD with the present large screen size… If any, they’ve had severe spec shortcomings in other areas…even for some flagships.
          Correct me if I’m wrong but Metro has never had a non-flagship without some severe spec shortcomings- the steady diet of hyped phones with something substandard- storage type size, ram, screen resolution size, battery charging mode, carrier bands modes, no NFC, no usb c,,,
          Purchasing always was kinda disappointing.
          It’s one of a couple of reasons why i moved some lines out-

        • marque2

          One other thing. The 5g isn’t as fast in certain situations snapdragon 865 has two channels and can do up to 7gbs the 765 can do 3.5gbs and the 690 can only do 2.5gbs. Even at much slower speeds, that could mean the N10 could be slower than the 865 based units. (If 865 can pick up 2 35mbs streams VS N10 only being able to get one as an example)

        • riverhorse

          I can just imagine that potential- I’m getting ½ gig now consistently. Hopefully it helps with Up & maybe ping?

    • James miles

      Highly rated by enthusiast the fantastic phone they didn’t think it was going to come to the states I’m buying two of these very soon

  • Shaun Michalak

    I was kind of excited to see a $180 phone that was 5G.. Then I took a better look and noticed it was not 5G.. That was kind of disappointing.. From what I have seen, I think anyone considering buying one of the 2 of them, to spend the extra and get the N10.. It may be a little more, but you get a more powerful processor, more RAM, 5G capabilities if you want/need them later.. At this point in time, I just do not see the value in spending hundreds of dollars on a phone that is not 5G, and capable of using T-Mobiles full network (not including mmWave) at this point in time.. That is unless you have to buy a new phone every couple months..

    Just got it yesterday. It’s a wee smidgen heavier than expected- say 1-2 oz more, though nothing like that Alcatel brick. Still, likely the upcoming Motos and Samsungs will likely be lighter.
    Things to like:
    paid zero, not even taxes, or sim activation, on the port in special (the $69 add a line different- full taxes on $300, + +).
    audio jack on bottom, power & volume buttons on opposite sides, quality sound, charges very fast even on older, lesser chargers.
    OnePlus transfer app fantastic for transferring over EVERYTHING.
    Speed test: 465 D, 46 U, 22 ping.
    XDA already dev-ing international variant, so there’s root & roms hope for this one.

    This is the first free discounted Metro model in memory that doesn’t require heavily compromising on some spec.
    Don’t wait to compare this with the Motos & Samsungs on the way. This likely won’t last long I doubt they would let this steal the thunder of those releases, or that those $100+ higher retail priced will match these promos.
