OnePlus could launch a new mid-range smartphone soon. The company is likely to refresh its Nord CE series lineup with the launch of the Nord CE 3. The OnePlus Nord CE series focuses on bringing the core features of the Nord phones at an affordable price. The Nord CE 3 will launch as a successor to the Nord CE 2 5G, which was launched earlier this year in India. OnePlus could launch the Nord CE 3 5G later this year or early next year.
There is no word on the official launch date. While we wait for that, a new leak has revealed the specifications of the Nord CE 3 5G. Tipster OnLeaks has collaborated with the website GadgetGang to reveal more details about the phone. Let’s take a look at the OnePlus Nord CE 3 5G specifications, features and other details known so far.
OnePlus Nord CE 3 5G Specifications Leaked
The OnePlus Nord CE 3 5G could be a new mid-range smartphone offering from the brand. It is expected to launch early next year in India. The exact launch date is unknown. Meanwhile, tipster OnLeaks claims that the upcoming Nord series phone will feature a Snapdragon SoC under the hood. The Nord CE 3 is said to feature a Snapdragon 695 SoC, which is found in the Nord CE 2 Lite 5G. The latter is a smartphone under Rs 20,000 in India.
OnLeaks further claimed that the Nord CE 3 will sport a 6.7-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD. The screen will reportedly be a lot bigger than the outgoing CE 2 5G, which sports a 6.43-inch display. That being said, OnePlus might downgrade the visual experience by offering an IPS LCD over the current model’s AMOLED panel. The CE 3 5G is also said to feature a 120Hz refresh rate panel, which is a bump over the Nord CE 2’s 90Hz support.
The phone will get upgrades in other areas. It will pack a bigger 5000mAh battery under the hood. The Nord CE 3 will also support 67W fast charging. On the back, there will be a triple-camera setup. While the device will not feature an ultrawide camera, it will come with a 108MP main camera sensor along with two 2MP sensors for depth sensing and macro photography.
For selfies, the Nord CE 3 will feature a 16MP front camera. It will come with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner along with AI face unlock support as well. In terms of storage options, the CE 3 will be launched in two configurations. The base model will pack 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There will be a 12GB RAM option as well, which will pack 256GB of internal storage.
Considering OnLeaks has quite good a track record when it comes to leaks, it is safe to say that the Nord CE 3 will pack the set of specifications mentioned above. The company has not confirmed any details officially. The Nord CE 3 could be priced under Rs 25,000 in India, given the incremental upgrades it brings with itself over the Nord CE 2 and Nord CE 2 Lite 5G.
