$30 to $50 e-GiftCards with pre-orders of new OnePlus Nord smartphones ($180 and $300)

The tech world works in mysterious ways. While the most recent OnePlus flagship series was not greeted as a liberator, OnePlus had a surprise hit with their Nord affordable line. And they have revealed two new models in the Nord line at Diet CES 2021…

For a limited time, if you pre-order them during this window, B&H Photo will include a $30 or $50 (depending on model) B&H Photo e-gift card. The offer is good while you see it mentioned at the B&H product page, look for something like this: “Includes Free: 1 item ($30.00 value)”

The Nord N100 (64GB) goes for $180 with the $30 B&H e-gift card included automatically by B&H. This phone has 4G LTE (no 5G, so you won’t regrow a tail), with 4GB RAM, SnapDrogon 460 with Adreno 610, 6.52″ (1600×720, 90Hz, IPS-type LCD, Gorilla 3) screen, USB-C, headphone jack, microSD slot, Wifi 5, Bluetooth 5, fingerprint, etc.

If you want higher specs, the 5G Nord N10 (128GB) goes for $300 with a $50 B&H e-gift card included automatically by B&H while this promotion is running. This has 6GB of RAM, SnapDrogon 690 with Adreno 619L, 6.49″ (2400×1080, 90Hz, 405ppi, Gorilla 3, IPS-type LCD) screen, USB-C, headphone jack, microSD, Wifi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, etc…

NOTE: I don’t see NFC in the B&H specs of either at their aforelinked product pages, so this is something you may want to further look into if you want to use it for contactless payments and such… Under Q&A, for the Nord N10, a B&H staff member answered a customer-question saying this has NFC… But to be certain, be sure to google around multiple places, including the usually-reliable “phone arenas” and such…
