Smartphone exclusivity deals with telecom providers may be good for the companies involved, but not so good for the average consumer.
for example? The OnePlus Nord N20 5G launched in April as a T-Mobile exclusive, putting it off for those bundled with other providers. Fortunately, as announced in an email to Lifewire, OnePlus has just corrected the issue, finally unlocking the phone so it can work with most telecom carriers.
OnePlus notes that the new unlocked version of the phone is compatible with many of the major players in the space, including Mint Mobile, GoogleFi, Metro, Simple Mobile, and more. The phone is available to AT&T users, but you can only connect to 4G, eliminating a key feature of the device.
As for other key features, this is a budget-friendly phone with a surprisingly strong list of specs. There’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset, 6GB of RAM, a fast-charging 4,500 mAh battery, a 64 MP primary camera, and a 6.43-inch AMOLED Full HD display.
The phone also boasts some gaming-centric features like an Andreo 619 GPU for stable graphics, a chipset that prioritizes low latency, and a gaming mode that’s included in the OS for further enhancement. Not bad for a $300 phone.
The unlocked version of the Nord N20 is now available at Best Buy, Amazon, Mint Mobile and online through OnePlus.
