"Flagship killer" OnePlus may be best known for packing premium features into mid-range prices, but its tendency to make good phones affordable isn't limited to the mid-range tier.

The N100 joins the Nord series – along with the Nord N10 5G – as the company's most affordable handset to date. It costs just £179/$179 and is on sale now in the UK and Europe, before arriving in the US on 15 January. Pre-orders in the US have already begun.

While such a tiny price tag obviously limits the phone from top-range features, the Nord N100 still manages to pack a 6.52in HD+ IPS LCD display, 64GB storage, a triple-camera setup, a whopping 5000mAh battery, and 18W fast charging – all powered by a Snapdragon 460.

The N100 also operates on Oxygen OS – OnePlus's unique Android experience that makes its flagships such a pleasure to use. Here's everything there is to know about the N100.

Here, we're keeping track of all retailers offering the Nord N100 on contract and SIM-free.
