OnePlus could soon be preparing to launch the Nord CE 2 successor, the Nord CE 3. While the company hasn’t announced anything yet, we have a new leak that gives us a glimpse of this phone’s spec sheet. Here’s what you can expect.
The OnePlus Nord CE 3 is rumored to launch with these features.
When OnLeaks partnered with GadgetGang to produce reports about the OnePlus Nord CE 3, it said that the phone would likely have upgraded specifications. For example, the 6.7-inch Full HD+ display might support a higher refresh rate of 120Hz. However, there may be a compromise in this version if the screen is an LCD: AMOLED was used in the Nord CE 2.

The rumor spec sheet suggests a Snapdragon 695 chipset, an upgrade from the MediaTek chipset you typically see in phones. We expect decent performance while not being super fast. The rumored phone is expected to have up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
The camera in the Nord CE 3 is said to get some upgrades. The primary shooter will be 108MP (the Nord CE 2 has a 64MP primary shooter), a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. A 16MP selfie camera is also expected in the phone.
According to the spec sheet, we can expect a 5,000mAh battery with support for fast charging. It’s more powerful than Samsung’s SuperVOOC charging, typically around 65W. The fingerprint sensor is also said to be located on the side phone instead of underneath the display. The specs are expected to be running Android 12-based OxygenOS.
We could look at a sub-Rs 30,000 price tag of the OnePlus Nord CE 3. As for the launch, we’ll only know for sure in December or January. The Nord CE 2 came out in February, so this timeline is possible.
