The capable OnePlus Nord 2T was replaced by the OnePlus Nord 3 today, the newest model in OnePlus’ midrange Nord family. The duration of support that OnePlus is providing, including three significant Android releases and four years of security updates, is one noticeable increase compared to last year’s phone. Although it falls short of the up to five years of support the firm offers for its top-of-the-line OnePlus 11, it is an improvement for both over the Nord 2T.
What does the Nord 3 offer?
The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 CPU inside the OnePlus Nord 3 can support up to 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Instead of the 90Hz panel seen on its predecessor, it features a 120Hz refresh rate screen this time, and the 6.74-inch flat display has a resolution of 2772 x 1240.
The Nord 3’s highest fast-charging speed is 80W, which, like the Nord 2T, OnePlus claims will charge the phone’s 5,000mAh battery from 0% to 60% in 15 minutes. As is customary with OnePlus, the Nord 3 also comes with a physical alert slider. It will be offered in either green or grey, and it will run OxygenOS 13.1, which is based on Android 13.
The OnePlus Nord 3’s main camera has a 50-megapixel resolution and optical image stabilisation. It’s the same sensor that OnePlus utilised in its most recent flagship model, the OnePlus 11, which had a respectable but not necessarily industry-leading camera system. An 8-megapixel ultrawide, 2-megapixel macro, and 16-megapixel selfie camera are available as extra lenses.
OnePlus Nord 3 Unboxing & Quick Look ! *Flagship Killer?*
The OnePlus Nord 3 is now available for preorder; the device will go on general sale on July 12th. Retail prices for the device range from €449 (about $490) for an 8GB/128GB model to €549 (roughly $598) for a 16GB/256GB variant. A OnePlus representative previously announced that the phone would be sold in 16 European markets in addition to other international markets like India. Given that OnePlus maintains a separate portfolio of Nord products domestically, the lack of a US availability for the gadget is not surprising. More unexpected is the Nord 3’s current lack of availability in the UK.
A OnePlus representative previously told Tech Advisor that “Nord 3 is not scheduled to go on sale in the UK at all, but it’s possible that changes in the future.” A spokesman for the company said that “logistical challenges around customs” were to reason for the lack of a UK launch and stated that the company had “temporarily put the sales of our smartphones on hold.”
