OnePlus Nord N100 has a 90Hz display after all

After Android Authority purchased a Nord N100 in the United Kingdom and found it to have a 90Hz panel, OnePlus retracted its previous statements about the phone shipping with a 60Hz screen, now saying that "the N100 is equipped with a 90Hz display". With the OnePlus Nord N100, the company advertised at launch that the phone has a standard 60Hz refresh rate.

OnePlus began fitting its phones with high refresh rate displays starting with the OnePlus 7 Pro that launched a year ago.

Since then, OnePlus has continued that tradition ever since. The budget-friendly phone from the company was launched alongside the OnePlus Nord N10 5G (which did come with a 90Hz display) last month.

Turns out, the OnePlus Nord N100 actually does have a 90Hz display - it just needs to be turned on in settings.

According to the spec sheet of the OnePlus Nord N100, the phone uses an HD+ panel with a 60Hz refresh rate.

Manufacturer Gilead said last month that the drug had boosted 2020 third quarter sales by nearly US$900 million (S$1.21 billion). The GDG recommendation is based on a new evidence review comparing the effects of several drug treatments for covid-19.

The reason for this could be the basic specifications of the OnePlus Nord N100 that may not be able to deliver the 90Hz experience across all apps. The smartphone maker later confirmed to the outlet that the N100 does sport a Fluid Display, although the actual user experience may depend on various factors, one of them being its low-end processor.

The refresh rate selector is now available in the Settings, although the phone is set to 60Hz by default.

The mystery has been demystified today by OnePlus itself, with the company confirming that the N100 does indeed have a 90Hz panel.

That final phrase there might hold the clue as to why OnePlus hasn't marketed this feature for this phone - "processing limitations". Out of the two, the OnePlus N100 was the cheaper phone with diluted specs, which included an HD+ punch-hole display, an entry-level Snapdragon 460 SoC, a rather large 5,000mAh battery, and a triple-lens camera setup highlighted by a 12MP primary camera.
