While OnePlus hasn’t gone on record with confirming the imminent release of the Nord CE 3, a new report from MySmartPrice suggests that the release may happen as early as this summer. As if that wasn’t enough, they’ve also come forward with a slew of leaked photos, courtesy of a reputable, but anonymous tipster.

From the shared images, we can see pretty much all there is to see of the Nord CE 3 on a surface level. The phone has been captured from all sides, revealing all of its ports, buttons and its camera setup.

No point in hiding it: this is quite the glossy phone! It’ll be a fingerprint magnet for sure, as long as this doesn’t turn out to be a pre-production unit. The sides of the Nord CE 3 are matte green, which is suspected to be one of the color options available at launch.

OnePlus Nord CE 3 specs — what can we expect?


A quick overview of the leaked photos of the Nord CE 3.

On the phone’s backside there are two large circular protrusions, which house its triple camera setup. There is a third, smaller one too, but that is for the LED flash unit. Rumors say that the array is composed of a 108MP main camera and two 2MP cameras for depth-perception and macro shots. The leaker hasn’t confirmed this info, but has stated that the phone lacks an ultra-wide camera.

The power button of the Nord CE 3 will be able to act as a fingerprint sensor, positioned on the right. The bottom side of the phone offers not only a USB-C charging port, but also a 3,5mm audio jack. Nice! To the left, the phone has a typical SIM tray, seemingly accessible through a SIM-ejector tool, and volume buttons. And, that’s about it. Meaning — no alert slider possibly confirmed. Boo! But, to be frank, it wasn’t there on the Nord CE 2 either.

As a successor to the Nord CE 2 — which surprised us with its snappy performance — the Nord CE 3 is expected to be a midrange entry into the OnePlus lineup of smartphones. While we still don’t have any confirmed specs, here’s a recap of what the latest rumors suggest:

  • A Full HD IPS LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate
  • Equipped with the Snapdragon 695 SoC
  • A 5,000mAh battery with 67W fast charging
  • 8GB of RAM
  • 256GB of internal storage

Only time will tell if any of these turn out to be true. And if the leaker is correct, and the Nord CE 3 is coming to users around July, then we’re surely to see more details surface as the summer draws near.
