OnePlus has announced the latest entrant in its Nord series, the OnePlus Nord CE3 Lite 5G. While OnePlus 3 Nord is yet to be launched in India, OnePlus has gone ahead with the Lite version first. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 Chipset, the OnePlus Nord CE3 Lite 5G features a 6.7-inch LCD display with a 120Hz refresh rate.
The phone comes with 8GB RAM and two storage options, 128GB and 256GB, with an option to expand storage up to 1TB with the microSD card slot.
In terms of the camera, the Nord CE3 Lite 5G comes with three sensors. The primary one is a Samsung 108-megapixel lens. The camera does not have OIS but comes with EIS. The other two lenses for depth and macro is a 2-megapixel one. The front camera is 16-megapixel. There is no 4K video recording capability; it can record 1080p and 720p video at 30 fps.
The fingerprint sensor is integrated with the power button. It also comes with a 3.5-mm audio port. OnePlus phones are known for their fast charging capability, and this one also comes with a 67W SuperVooc charger. The battery on the phone is 5000mAh, which should last for a day, at least. However, a gripe is that the phone misses on the much-appreciated alert slider.
The phone runs Android 13 on Oxygen OS and will receive two Android OS updates and three years of security updates.
The OnePlus Nord3 CE Lite comes in Lime Green and Chromatic Gray colour. The 128GB version of the phone retails for Rs.19,999 and 256GB for Rs. 21,999. OnePlus is also offering Rs.1000 discount on using ICICI bank payment modes. Additionally, other discounts and offers on other OnePlus products can be availed on oneplus.in. The phone will be available from 11 April 2023.
