The ‘detailed’ OnePlus Nord 3 5G specs are (probably) here
OnePlus doesn’t really seem like a serious global challenger for Apple and Samsung in the high-end smartphone market segment anymore, but when it comes to inexpensive mid-rangers, the “never-settling” brand has never looked quite as competitive as it does right now.
That’s primarily thanks to the Nord family, which was established less than two years ago, rapidly expanding (both numerically and as far as its mainstream popularity goes) around the world.
So… much… speed
While Digital Chat Station avoids naming the “new OnePlus phone” whose “detailed parameters” he’s sharing here presumably based on credible inside information, we really don’t see what other device this could be.
That’s because the insanely fast 150-watt charging technology is apparently set to be paired with a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 processor, which shouldn’t deliver a comparable level of raw power as Qualcomm’s state-of-the-art Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC… in theory.
OnePlus Nord 3 price and other specifications
The Nord 2 (pictured here) is a very good mid-range phone, but the Nord 3 could be even better.
The Nord 3 could even go so far as to retain the IMX766 sensor of its predecessor’s main 50MP rear-facing camera in addition to that megapixel count, as well as an 8MP secondary shooter presumably in charge of ultra-wide-angle tasks and a tertiary 2MP sensor. Oddly enough, the 4,500mAh battery capacity is also expected to go unchanged even though the Full HD display will purportedly go up from a 6.43-inch diagonal to a much more generous 6.7 inches.
Meanwhile, the single selfie shooter could be housed in a centered hole punch this time around rather than a small screen cutout positioned in the top left corner, and instead of rocking 32 megapixels, a 16MP downgrade is rumored.
All in all, this sounds like a budget-friendly slam dunk, cutting a few unimportant corners while preparing to crush many costlier devices where it matters most, at least for some people.
