OnePlus Nord 3: Major Updates and Superior Specs for the Midrange Market.
OnePlus has just revealed its latest smartphone, the OnePlus Nord 3. This is a new model in their popular Nord range, replacing the OnePlus Nord 2T. The company has committed to longer support for this model, promising three major Android updates and four years of security updates.
The Nord 3 comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chip, and you can choose to get it with up to 16GB RAM and 256GB storage. The phone has a bigger and better screen than before, featuring a 120Hz refresh rate and a 6.74-inch flat display with a resolution of 2772 x 1240.
Battery life should be excellent with a large 5,000mAh battery that can fast charge at 80W, going from 1% to 60% in just 15 minutes. The Nord 3 runs the Android 13-based OxygenOS 13.1, and will be available in either green or gray.
The camera is high-quality too, with a 50-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 16-megapixel selfie camera.
The Nord 3 is available for pre-order now and will go on sale on July 12th. Prices start at €449 (around $490) for the version with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, or €549 (around $598) for the version with 16GB RAM and 256GB storage. The phone will be sold in 16 European markets and India, but won’t initially be available in the U.S. or the UK.
In addition, OnePlus has announced a cheaper model, the OnePlus Nord CE3, which will be released in India in August.
