OnePlus Nord CE 3 5G: Specifications Leaked So Far

The OnePlus Nord CE 3 5G will launch as a new mid-range smartphone in India. It will likely be a smartphone priced around Rs 25,000 in India. OnePlus has not confirmed any details about the phone’s launch in India. Meanwhile, tipster Sharma claims that the India variant of the Nord CE 3 will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G SoC, which offers some incremental improvements over the much more popular Snapdragon 778G SoC.

The device is said to launch in India with up to 12GB of LPDDR4x RAM. It will also have support for up to 16GB of RAM-vita, which is OnePlus’ way of saying virtual RAM. There will be some gaming-centric features, such as HyperTouch and HyperBoost.

The phone is also said to pack a beefy 5000mAh battery. It will offer support for 80W fast charging out of the box.

The Nord CE 3 5G is also tipped to sport a tall 6.7-inch Fluid AMOLED display. The screen will remain flat and offer up to 950 nits of brightness. Additionally, there will be support for a 120Hz refresh rate as well.

Sharma also revealed the camera specifications of the Nord CE 3 5G. The tipster claims that the phone will feature a triple-camera setup on the back. There will be a 50MP Sony IMX890 main camera with support for optical image stabilisation (OIS). The same sensor is used in the flagship OnePlus 11. However, the camera performance will likely not be similar due to different tuning, including the Hasselblad touch in the OnePlus 11, along with some hardware differences such as an image signal processor, also known as ISP. The Nord CE 3 will also feature an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 112-degree field of view and a 2MP macro sensor. The rear camera is tipped to support 4K 30fps video recording.

The device will feature an IR blaster, X-axis linear motor, NFC support, etc. However, there will not be an alert slider, which has been found in many premium OnePlus phones. 

The Nord CE 3 will also feature a plastic frame. It will launch in two colours, according to Sharma, which will be called Aqua Surge and Grey Shimmer. Lastly, the phone will boot OxygenOS 13.1 out of the box and will get two major Android updates along with security updates for three years.
