OnePlus beefs up its budget line-up by introducing a couple of new products under the Nord series. One of them is the all-new OnePlus Nord CE 3.

The OnePlus Nord CE 3 is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G processor that offers higher clock speeds of up to 2.7GHz and up to 10% better GPU performance than its cousins. You can pair it with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage.


There’s a large 6.7-inch AMOLED screen on the front, with an apt FHD+ pixel resolution, and of course, 120Hz refresh rate.

On the back, we have a familiar design for the Nord series. The first lens holds the 50-megapixel main camera that uses an IMX890 sensor, while the second glass is shared by the 8-megapixel ultra-wide and 2-megapixel macro lenses.


Keeping the lights on is a 5,000mAh battery with OPPO’s 80W SUperVOOC fast charging.

Since it’s a global device, it will ship with OxygenOS 13.1 instead of ColorOS found on Chinese OnePlus devices. That’s on top of Android 13.


The new OnePlus Nord CE 3 has a price of INR26,999 (~Php18,200) and INR28,999 (~Php19,500) for the 8GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB models, respectively. They will be available in India in August while release details in the Philippines are yet to be known.
