OnePlus has officially launched the OnePlus Nord 3 5G and the OnePlus Nord Buds 2r to the global market. The former is a midrange phone packed with top-of-the-range technology which gives its users pretty much everything they could ask for, while the latter is designed to revolutionize the true wireless stereo (TWS) market as it is designed to deliver extreme bass performance with burdenless durability, all at an incredibly affordable price.
OnePlus Nord 3 5G
“OnePlus Nord products are all about combining industry-leading features with industry-challenging prices, so I’m excited people will be able to experience OnePlus Nord 3 5G very soon,” said Kinder Liu, OnePlus President and COO. “With its combination of powerful performance, beautiful design, fast and smooth software and attractive price, OnePlus Nord 3 5G truly embodies our commitment to give our users the best possible experience.”
OnePlus Nord 3 5G is the most powerful OnePlus Nord phone ever, combining blazing-fast performance with dazzling photography and a beautiful and timeless OnePlus design.
An elegant and understated work of art
OnePlus Nord 3 5G is designed to stand out and features a pure, eye-catching design complete with an IP54 rating. It packs a flat 6.74-inch 120Hz Super Fluid AMOLED display with 450 pixels per inch and up to 1450 nits of brightness. The screen is surrounded by some of the smallest bezels on any smartphone, measuring just 1.46mm on each side of the screen and 2.31mm below it, and without the black plastic surround often seen on mid-range smartphones. This gives OnePlus Nord 3 5G a seamless feel and a screen-to-body ratio of 93.5%.
The sides of the phone, measuring just 8.15mm in thickness, features the legendary OnePlus Alert Slider as well as dual stereo speakers that feature Dirac drivers and are Hi-Res Audio and Dolby Atmos certified equipped. At the rear of the OnePlus Nord 3 is its flagship-level camera, encased in a timeless design which looks spectacular in 1 available colourway. Misty Green feels flawlessly smooth in the hand and comes with a glossy glass texture.
Flagship level hardware
OnePlus Nord 3 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset, chosen for its combination of superior speed and brilliant battery life management. Thanks to MediaTek’s power and energy efficiency technology and OnePlus’s own GPA Frame Rate Stabiliser and HyperTouch engine, OnePlus Nord 3 5G gives a smooth gaming experience while responding instantly to your commands. Packing along with the 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM which, combined with OnePlus’s RAM-Vita software, means the phone can keep up to 44 apps alive at the same time.
Nord 3 5G is packing with a 5000 mAh battery and also comes with Battery Health Engine to give an expected lifecycle of up to 1600 charging cycles, the equivalent of fully charging – and fully discharging – the phone’s battery every single day for more than four years. The device also features 80W SUPERVOOC charging, taking the battery from 1-100% in half an hour, and has a bespoke charging management chip to ensure that your phone charges superfast while remaining super safe and super cool.
The phone cool also has a flagship-level cooling system, measuring 4129.88mm2, featuring high-performance graphite technology and a large vapour chamber.
Perfect imaging in any situation
OnePlus Nord 3 5G offers a great photography experience and features some of the same imaging hardware and software seen in the smash hit OnePlus 11 5G flagship device launched earlier this year.
The main camera sensor on OnePlus Nord 3 5G is the OnePlus 11 5G’s 50-megapixel Sony IMX890, complete with optical image stabilisation, tuned to give great imaging results every time. And when the light level gets low, OnePlus Nord 3 5G also comes complete with TurboRAW Night, a OnePlus-developed algorithm which makes for stunning nighttime photography by taking multiple photos in an instant and using AI to reduce noise, increase brightness and combine them into one amazing shot.
OnePlus Nord 3 5G doesn’t just steal its photography smarts from the OnePlus 11 5G. It also uses its MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset to work its own wonders, including having a fast camera start-up and reducing the time from turning on to taking your first shot. The Dimensity 9000 chipset combined with OnePlus’s OxygenOS software also results in a reduced delay in previewing photos and even allows OnePlus Nord 3 5G to support 4K 60 frames per second videography, a first for the OnePlus Nord range.
Legendary Fast and Smooth user experience, for longer
The phone launches with OxygenOS 13.1, the latest version of OnePlus’s operating system, which gives a 40% reduction in application power consumption and 15% faster app installation than OxygenOS 12. OnePlus has also listened to its community and will ensure Nord 3 5G will also receive three major Android software updates and a full four years of security updates which, when combined with the TÜV SÜD 48-Month Fluency A rating, means that OnePlus Nord 3 5G will be just as good to use in four years as it is today.
