OnePlus Nord 3 Design: A Sneak Peek

The OnePlus Nord 3 will pack some premium hardware. The device is expected to launch soon in India and Europe in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, the WinFuture report confirms that the Nord 3 will be a rebadged Ace 2V from China. Design renders shared by tipster Quandt reveal that the global variant will launch in Green and Grey colour options.

The design is pretty much the same as the Ace 2V in China. The phone has two circular cutouts on the back for the triple-camera setup. There are also two LED flash modules next to the camera cutouts. The flat frame seems to be made of plastic and houses the power button below the alert slider on the right edge. The volume rocker is on the left edge. At the bottom edge is the USB Type-C port sandwiched between the primary speaker grille and the SIM tray.  The top edge has cutouts for the microphone and possibly an IR blaster.

On the front, the Nord 3 5G has a hole-punch cutout at the top of the display. The screen is flat and sports thin bezels around it.
