Recently, some official-looking press renders of the OnePlus Nord 3 appeared online, hinting at an imminent launch. In these images, we get a glimpse of two eye-catching color options. The signature OnePlus blue/green/teal hue that we’ve come to know and love, as well as a more timeless dark gray/black variant.
According to rumors, the Nord 3 could be a better version of the OnePlus Ace 2V, a phone that entered the Chinese market back in March. If this turns out to be true, we can expect some impressive specs from the Nord 3.
It has a sizable 6.74-inch display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate. It also has a sharp 1240×2772 resolution, protected by Asahi Glass. The camera setup supposedly has a triple rear camera system, featuring a 64MP main sensor. It also has an 8MP ultra wide lens, and a 2MP macro shooter. For stunning selfies, there’s a 16MP front-facing camera.
Performance and battery
Under the hood, the OnePlus Nord 3 will likely use a MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 chipset, which promises powerful performance. It will likely come with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, if it turns out to be a rebranded Ace 2V.
On the software front, you can expect the Nord 3 to run Android 13 with OxygenOS 13. It will deliver a smooth and customized user experience. For the battery, the Nord 3 will probably have a 5,000mAh battery with support for blazing-fast 80W wired charging.
Now, here’s a little hiccup. Due to an ongoing patent dispute between Oppo and Nokia, the OnePlus Nord 3 won’t be available in Germany. However, for our friends in other European countries, you can expect the Nord 3 to hit store shelves “in the coming days,” as per a reliable source behind this leak.
