OnePlus is giving out details about the Nord CE 3 Lite, which is expected to be unveiled next week. The phone looks like to be a massive upgrade over the Nord CE 2 Lite
Here’s what the official landing page has to say about the phone. It will be powered by the Snapdragon 695, the same old chip as its predecessor which is quite boring. The chipset will be equipped with 8GB of RAM plus up to 8 extra gigs of virtual RAM, along with 128GB storage.
The CE 3 Lite will also be equipped with a 108MP main camera with native support for 3x zoom (up from a small 64MP sensor with 0.7µm pixels) and on the front, there will be a 6.72” display with 120Hz refresh rate (up from 6.59”). OnePlus fancies this as a gaming phone with a number of software improvements that will be part of the OxygenOS 13.1 experience.

As revealed previously, the phone will be equipped with a 5,000mAh battery with 67W fast charging (up from 33W). OnePlus promises “one day’s power” after 30 minutes of charging.

The OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite will be available in Pastel Lime and Chromatic Gray. OnePlus is keeping silent on the pricing for now, but for comparison, the Nord CE 2 Lite launched at ₹20,000/£280/€310/₱14,590 last year.
The phone will launch alongside the Nord Buds 2, which will feature 12.4mm dual drivers plus the BassWave enhancement algorithm.

Despite the subpar chipset, the phone is really interesting. As soon as the release date gets closer, we’ll share more details about it.
