OnePlus is currently working on a new entry-level 5G smartphone that will replace the OnePlus Nord N200 5G in the US. Reports suggest that the new smartphone is likely to be called the OnePlus Nord N300 5G and will bring some improvements over its predecessor. It has been listed by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) in the US, hinting that its launch is imminent.
The FCC listing says that the OnePlus Nord N300 5G will be available for the North American markets. According to the listing, it will support n2/n25/n41/n66/n71/n77 5G bands along with NFC and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.
The device with model number CPH2389 was spotted earlier in the IMEI database and Bluetooth SIG. The Bluetooth SIG listing reveals that the device will support the latest Bluetooth v5.3, which is unlikely as only the high-end chipsets like the Dimensity 8000/8100 and the Dimensity 9000 come with Bluetooth v5.3. The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 mid-range chipset does offer Bluetooth v5.3, but plonking it in the N300 would make it a lot more expensive than the N200 5G.

The OnePlus Nord N200 5G came with a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel with Full HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The new N300 5G can be expected to carry the same display setup. It could be powered by a Snapdragon 695 5G processor as opposed to the Snapdragon 480 chipset of its predecessor. It will be equipped with at least 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Cameras are expected to remain similar to the N200 5G, which gets a triple rear camera setup comprising a 13MP primary sensor and two 2MP ancillary shooters. It may pack in a 5,000mAh battery as before but an improved 33W fast charging support can’t be ruled out. Another report suggests that OnePlus is currently testing the device in India and might introduce it in the country with different nomenclature. It will come in blue and black colours.
