So far, OnePlus has launched quite a few devices in the Nord lineup and all of it have rather been popular in their respective price segments. The last numbered launch in the Nord series was the OnePlus Nord 2T which was announced in July 2022, followed up by the launch of the OnePlus Nord 20 SE although the latter did not officially launch in India. These were essentially launches to target the various segments and with some spec improvements.

And now reputed sources speaking to MySmartPrice confirmed that the OnePlus Nord 3 has not only been developed but is under testing in India.
