New OnePlus Nord brings 108MP camera and a juicy battery under $400
- OnePlus has launched the Nord CE 3 Lite.
- The phone is the most affordable handset in OnePlus’ portfolio.
- It brings camera and charging upgrades over its predecessor.
OnePlus has officially launched the Nord CE 3 Lite after weeks of leaks that revealed everything about the phone. The phone replaces the Nord CE 2 Lite to become the most affordable handset in the company’s portfolio.
The Nord CE 3 Lite gets some welcome upgrades over its predecessor. The FHD display is a tad bigger at 6.72 inches, featuring a 120Hz refresh rate. The biggest upgrade comes to the triple-camera setup, which comprises a 108MP primary sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro sensor. This is different from the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G, which had a 64MP main camera and an ultrawide sensor instead of a depth sensor. A 16MP selfie shooter rests upfront.
Under the hood, the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite is powered by the Snapdragon 695 5G chip and offers 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage.
A 5,000mAh battery with 67W charging completes the setup. While the battery size remains the same this year, the upgrade from 33W fast charging ensures you get 80% charge in only 30 minutes. The phone also features a 3.5mm headphone jack and can boost the speaker volume by 200%.
The Nord CE 3 Lite comes in at £299 (~$371). It’s available in two colorways — Pastel Lime and Chromatic Grey. Pre-orders for the phone start today. Open sales will follow on April 20.
