OnePlus Nord 3 5G was launched as a rebadged version of the OnePlus Ace 2V in India. The Nord 3 5G has a straightforward, minimalist style that appears to belong on far more costly hardware. It comes in two color variants: Misty Green has a subdued glossy celadon glass surface, Tempest Gray has a stormy 2.8D silk glass cover with a frosted texture that is anti-glare and anti-fingerprint. Moreover, the classic OnePlus alert slider is back on the Nord 3 5G.
OnePlus Nord 3 5G Specifications
The LPDDR5X RAM in the Nord 3 5G provides a face-meltingly fast and smooth experience, even though the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 processor delivers flagship-level performance. To keep it cool, a large VC cooling system of 4129.8mm2 that uses high-performance graphite technology is equipped with the flagship.
The super Fluid AMOLED display of the OnePlus Nord 3 5G measures 17.12 cm (6.74 inches) and has a hefty 120 Hz adaptive dynamic frame rate. Talking about its camera, the Nord 3 5G’s 50 MP Sony IMX890 sensor is the same one that is seen in powerful flagships like the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus 11R. While, on the front, it has a 16MP snapper for taking selfies.
The Nord 3 is packed with a 5000 mAh battery with 80-watt SUPERVOOC charging support. Moreover, the battery health engine increases charging cycles from 800 to 1600 by a factor of two. Additionally, the Nord 3 5G comes with OxygenOS 13.1 based on Android 13 out of the box. To remind you, the Nord 3 5G is the first OnePlus Nord device to receive three years of major Android upgrades and four years of security updates.
