It looks like OnePlus is about to enter a busy period as not only will the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite land on April 4, but it looks like we’ll be seeing the OnePlus Nord 3 soon as well.
While OnePlus hasn’t confirmed anything about the latter phone yet, it has been spotted on various certification sites (via My smart price (opens in a new tab)), implying that it exists and will be landing soon, as well as revealing some details about the phone.
Certifications for the phone have so far been spotted in China, India, Singapore and Germany, and in each case, these are official organizations that access the devices before they go live. Therefore, the information they store should be accurate.
From these you can see that the OnePlus Nord 3 apparently has the model number CPH2493 and has 80W fast charging. Unsurprisingly, it is also listed as having 5G, WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC.
The most notable detail, then, is the charging speed, which is an improvement over the 65W OnePlus Nord 2, which is quite fast for a mid-range phone.
It is also worth noting that the presence of the phone in these certification databases suggests that it will appear on the market soon, as phones usually appear in these places within a few months of launch.
This is in line with what we’ve already heard, as previous leaks have suggested that the OnePlus Nord 3 will launch in late June or early July, so it could be around three months at the time of writing.
There is no need to wait
If you want to know more about the OnePlus Nord 3, you may not need to wait for its official unveiling as a leak Max Jambor (opens in a new tab) previously said it would be a global version of the China-only OnePlus Ace 2V.
This phone has already appeared, so we know everything about it. Specs include 6.74-inch 1240 x 2772 AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate, MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset, up to 512GB storage, up to 16GB RAM, 64MP sensor-guided triple-lens camera, 5000mAh battery and charging 80W
So the charging speed matches what the certifications we’ll get suggest, adding credence to the idea that it’s really a OnePlus Nord 3. Let’s hope so, as that’s an impressive assortment of specs for a mid-range phone.
That said, the Global version might as well run with less RAM and storage than the OnePlus Ace 2V. There is also the question of whether this is what we will really get from the Nord 3, as a leak @Gadgetsdata (opens in a new tab) previously revealed various specifications.
Either way, if the OnePlus Nord 3 is priced right, it has a good chance of claiming a spot among the best OnePlus phones.
