Smartphone manufacturer OnePlus to replace Nord N10 to this upgraded smartphone: Read here

OnePlus Nord CE 5G could be the successor to the OnePlus Nord N10 5G. The upcoming phone was previously believed to be called OnePlus Nord N1 5G. A tipster has shared the development on Twitter without any details about the smartphone itself. While the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and OnePlus Nord N100 that launched in the European and US market did not come to India, the OnePlus Nord N1 was reportedly spotted in a Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) listing.

Tipster Max Jambor shared on Twitter a post that shows the “Nord N1 5G” text stricken and an image that just says “Nord CE 5G.” This indicates the rumoured upcoming OnePlus budget phone believed to be the successor to the OnePlus Nord N10 5G will be called OnePlus Nord CE 5G instead of OnePlus Nord N1 5G. This phone is expected to launch this year and could make its way to the Indian market as well. Back in March, the phone believed to be the OnePlus Nord N1 5G was spotted in a BIS listing hinting at an imminent Indian launch.

In the same month, the design and specifications of the OnePlus Nord CE 5G aka OnePlus Nord N1 5G were tipped as well. It is said to carry the same design as the OnePlus Nord N10, at least for the front with a hole-punch cutout located at the top left corner of the display. Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks) had shared renders that showed a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a triple rear camera setup, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

In terms of specifications, the tipster said that the OnePlus Nord CE 5G will come with the same 6.49-inch flat display as the Nord N10, a glossy plastic rear panel, metal frame, and thick bezels. The rumoured phone is said to measure 162.9×74.7×8.4mm.

Amid reduction in sales, Apple iPhone 12 mini production to be stopped permanently

Published

Apple iPhone 12 mini arrived last year as the most affordable phone that dared to resize flagship-level phones. But it failed to perform in terms of sales, and now a report has said Apple has stopped the production of the iPhone 12 mini. The smallest phone in last year’s iPhone series brought a welcome change in the iPhone upgrade cycle, but, while some people loved the idea of a small yet powerful iPhone, most customers did not find value in it. What followed was lacklustre sales of the iPhone 12 mini, with Apple ultimately deciding that it is done with it.

That is an interesting move though, especially at a time when a huge round of rumours have unanimously pointed out there is going to be an iPhone 13 mini this year — as a successor to the iPhone 12 mini. The sales of the iPhone 12 mini were never great. In fact, Apple had previously downscaled the production of the smallest iPhone because of negligible interest in the smaller iPhone. A report by TrendForce has now claimed that the iPhone 12 mini reached “End-of-Life” status earlier this quarter because of weak sales. This means no further production of the iPhone 12 mini. This is in line with the prediction of JP Morgan analyst, William Yang who, in February, said the iPhone 12 mini production will end soon.

Apple is likely to still have a good inventory of iPhone 12 mini units that it will continue to sell across the globe, but that is it. Apple will not ask its manufacturers to replug the production roll for the iPhone 12 mini. The iPhone 12 mini is available to buy from the Apple Store, as well, in India, without any delays in shipment. And if you check other websites, such as Amazon, you will see big discounts on the iPhone 12 mini. To make sense of it, those discounts may be a way to clear the inventory, but nothing is official about it.

But the stocks are not likely to last as long as September when Apple will launch the new iPhone models. There is an iPhone 13 mini in the pipeline, according to rumours, and Apple will have to promote that phone as a priority then. This year’s iPhones will also mark the death of the production of the iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the three-year-old iPhone XR, which is among the best-selling iPhone models right now. The vanilla iPhone 12 may still continue to sell, unsurprisingly, because it topped the sales charts for the iPhone 12 series altogether.
