OnePlus Nord CE 3, the rumored successor to the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G, could be launched by the company later this year. Previous reports have hinted at details of the alleged mid-range smartphone, while leaked live images have also surfaced online. The full specs and release date of this OnePlus smartphone have been leaked online, and some details contradict previous reports. Meanwhile, the company’s Nord 3 smartphone, which will be the successor to the OnePlus Nord 2 device released in July 2021, is also expected to launch soon.
According to a report by My Smart Price, the OnePlus Nord CE 3 is expected to launch in July. The OnePlus Nord 3 is also scheduled to be launched between mid-June and July.
The report quotes tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer (Twitter: @OnLeaks) as revealing that the OnePlus CE-branded device will come with a 6.72-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. This contradicts previous leaks that suggested the phone will likely have an IPS LCD screen.
According to the report, the OnePlus Nord CE 3 is expected to be powered by an eight-core Snapdragon 782G chipset, paired with 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of onboard storage.
For optics, the upcoming OnePlus Nord CE 3 will reportedly come with three rear cameras, including a 50-megapixel Sony IMX890 primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. For selfies and video chats, a 16-megapixel sensor should be housed in a centrally aligned cutout at the top of the display.
The phone will also likely feature an in-display fingerprint sensor and a 5000mAh battery with 80W fast charging support, according to the report. Dual-band Wi-Fi, 5G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth and a USB Type-C port are also reportedly among the upcoming handset’s connectivity options.
The OnePlus 11 5G was unveiled at the company’s Cloud 11 launch event, which also featured several other devices.
