OnePlus Nord 3
The OnePlus Nord 3 prices and storage options have been leaked ahead of the expected India launch this month. According to tipster Roland Quandt, who has a decent track record in leaks, the Nord 3 will be offered in two storage variants. The base model is said to be available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage configuration. The top model will likely include 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. If the rumour is accurate, this will be the first Nord phone to include up to 16GB of RAM. In a tweet, Quandt tips the prices as well.
The tweet highlights the price of the base model would be around EUR 449 (Rs 37,800), while the top model may cost EUR 549 (Rs 48,700). The tipster has not shared the India-specific prices of the Nord 3, though we can expect the price to be more competitive (and affordable) for the Indian market. The Nord 2T of last year currently sells for Rs 28,999 (128GB) and Rs 33,999 (256GB).
Since the Nord 3 is expected to include notable upgrades over its predecessors, the India price may start at Rs 31,000 and go up to Rs 38,000 for the top model. By doing this, OnePlus India would not end up competing against its own devices, including OnePlus 11R, which retails at Rs 39,999 (128GB) and Rs 44,999 (256GB).
The information comes days after the “official renders” of Nord 3 were leaked. According to the renders, the phone may have two colour options — black and lime green. The Nord 3 will likely feature a new design for the back to offer a unibody look. The side is expected to include a distinct alert slide to manage loud and silent audio modes.
While the back includes two cutouts, the phone is expected to carry three cameras. The rear camera system will reportedly feature a 50-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The front is expected to feature a 6.74-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2772×1240 pixels and a 120Hz refresh rate. The phone may draw power from the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 octa-core SoC and a 5000mAh battery. The battery may have 80W charging support, which could power up the device from 0 to 100 per cent charge in less than an hour. Other rumoured specifications include Android 13, 5G, and an under-display fingerprint scanner.
Readers must note that OnePlus is yet to confirm the launch of the Nord 3 globally, including in India.
