The OnePlus Nord N300 5G is headed to the US next month
The OnePlus Nord N300 5G release date is just around the corner, but will it continue to be a good value for money? The OnePlus is usually associated with smartphones that offer much more than their price suggests, and the Nord N series is no different. Priced at just $240, the Nord N200 5G offered decent specs with a few compromises. Its features include a 6.49-inch FHD+ 90Hz display, Snapdragon 480 5G processor, triple rear camera with 13MP main shooter, 16MP selfie camera, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage,

and a quick charger in the box. The 5,000 mAh battery capacity is more than what the iPhone 14 offers and will keep the phone going all day. Now, it seems that its successor, the OnePlus Nord N300 5G, aims to increase those numbers a bit while keeping its price to a minimum. OnePlus announced via a press release that Nord N300 5G specs will include a slightly larger 6.56-inch HD+ 90Hz display, a more capable MediaTek 2.4GHz Dimensity 810 chip, a dual rear camera setup with a taller 48MP main lens, and come with a much faster 33W fast charger. However, it still retains some of its predecessor’s compromises; that means the same memory, storage, battery capacity, and still no mmWave support for 5G. Does this still mean a better overall package considering the low cost of the OnePlus Nord N300 5G?
How do Nord N300 5G prices compare?
OnePlus Nord N300 5G price starts at $228. Compared to the more expensive Google Pixel 6a, the Nord N300 5G has a bigger display, better battery, and camera hardware to make its prices sound like a steal. Of course, this price also puts it in direct competition with the surprisingly cheap Samsung Galaxy F23, which offers similar battery, memory, and storage options for almost the same price. Despite its outdated 2.2GHz Snapdragon 750G processor, the Galaxy F23 features a more powerful triple camera setup with a 50MP primary shooter, as well as a larger, sharper, and smoother
6.6-inch FHD+ 120Hz display.
However, the Galaxy F23’s downside is its limited availability, while the Nord N300 5G will be available in the US through T-Mobile or T-Mobile’s Metro. The N200 successor is only offered in one color – Midnight Jade – and it’s unclear if more options will be available upon release. Perhaps the bigger concern is whether or not OnePlus’ new budget smartphone will improve on the gimmicky promises of its predecessor. Consumers will soon find out when the OnePlus Nord N300 5G drops on November 3rd from 9 am EST onwards.
