The technical specifications of the next mid-range smartphone are becoming clearer with the leaks: this time, it is an almost complete technical sheet that is coming, although the leakers do not agree. The OnePlus Nord 3 could well correct some flaws of the Nord 2 released last year.
After a very good OnePlus Nord 2, we expect OnePlus to come back with a new mid-range smartphone – the OnePlus Nord 3. Some leaks reveal the details of this upcoming model, such as that of my smart price in collaboration with the filter On Leaks.
The main defect of the screen would be corrected
Last year we criticized the Nord 2’s display for its 90Hz refresh rate, where we might have been entitled to 120Hz. This would now be the case in this new version. It would be a 6.72-inch Amoled panel in Full HD definition. However, previous leaks indicated that the screen would be IPS LCD and another from a few days ago spoke of a 6.5-inch diagonal. So we’ll have to wait before we have the end of the OnePlus Nord 3 story, but OnLeaks is known for its unwavering reliability.
In the photographic section, we would be entitled to a 50 Mpx main photosensor, an 8 Mpx ultra-wide angle and a 2 Mpx macro. On the other hand, a 16 Mpx sensor would be housed in a punch of this OnePlus smartphone.
The OnePlus Nord 3 would still have more RAM
This leak indicates that the OnePlus Nord 3 will feature an eight-core Dimensity 9000 SoC from MediaTek. However, a previous leak revealed that it would be a Snapdragon 695 SoC. Of the available configurations, there would be two: one with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, the other with 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. On the other hand, the previous revelations leaned more towards 12 GB of RAM.
As for the battery, it would have a capacity of 5000 mAh and could be recharged at a maximum power of 80 W in USB-C: we are far from the 150 W announced by the filter Digital chat station last March. We would find in the OnePlus Nord 3 a fingerprint sensor on the side as well as a 3.5mm audio port.
Another big question that arises: the price. While many manufacturers have increased their prices with new versions of their smartphones, OnePlus could do the same. As a reminder, the OnePlus Nord 2 was launched at 400 euros in July 2021. Although the new technology sector is also going through a period of inflation, the manufacturer could be forced to make some concessions to maintain this price. This could go through the choice of IPS instead of AMOLED for the screen, for example.
