Free OnePlus Buds Z in US
The Nord N10 5G is now officially available to buy in the UK, Europe and, finally, the US, where it also serves as the first Nord entrant to release into the market.
US customers can pre-order the N10 5G right now with full sales beginning 15 January. Pre-orders include a free pair of OnePlus Buds Z.
Apart from 5G connectivity, the phone offers features that would appeal to anyone looking for a reliable handset on a budget, such 30W fast charging, Bluetooth 5.1, excellent speakers, and a headphone jack.
In his review, our Consumer Tech Editor Alex Walker-Todd found the N10 5G’s user experience to be its strongest suit, despite some kinks. Here’s where you can buy the OnePlus N10 5G right now.
How much does the OnePlus Nord N10 5G cost?
The N10 5G was unveiled in October 2020 alongside the Nord N100, which went on sale on 16 November at a humble price of just £179. Here’s where to buy the Nord N100 instead.
The N10, in comparison, is slightly pricier at £329/€349/US$299.99 – but it still remains one of the cheapest 5G phones on the market (and prices continue to drop).
We’re comparing the best budget handsets separately if you want to know where the N10 stands against its main competition.
Where to buy the Nord N10 5G
Unlike the Nord N100, the N10 5G is only available SIM-free in the UK. Thankfully, you can find excellent cheap SIM-Only deals with 5G support. Three currently has unlimited data for £10 (for six months) – its cheapest rate yet.
In the UK, the Nord N10 5G was first made available directly from OnePlus. Amazon started selling the N10 5G on 27 November, with pre-orders including a free pair of Bullet Z earphones, worth £49.95. You can also find the N10 5G from the likes of Laptops Direct, John Lewis and Amazon.
Stateside, the N10 5G and N100 hit pre-sale on the same day – 8 January and are available to pre-order until 14 January. Full sales begin 15 January, at 7am PT/10am ET.
Pre-orders include a free pair of OnePlus Buds Z wireless earphones which separately cost £55/$49.99.
The N10 is a carrier-exclusive with network partner T-Mobile (as well as Metro by T-Mobile) and can also be picked up unlocked from OnePlus directly, as well as established retailers Amazon, Best Buy and B&H.
