OnePlus reveals the Nord CE 3 Lite


The newest Nord CE 3 Lite, one of OnePlus’ Core Edition products, reveals that this doesn’t equal “no frills” because it has a 108-megapixel primary camera. The company also introduced a Nord Buds follow-up that now includes ANC.

The 1/1.67″ ISOCELL HM6 sensor is the basis for the 108MP camera in the OnePlus North CE 3 Lite. In comparison to the Nord CE 2 Lite’s 64MP (0.7 mm) pixels, its 0.64m pixels may be binned 9-to-1 for 12MP output with a 1.92m effective pixel size. Besides, 3x Lossless zoom is possible (and up to 6x digital zoom). The fact that this is the only true camera on the back—the other two modules are a 2MP macro and a 2MP depth sensor—should not come as a surprise considering the CE and Lite certifications.


The Snapdragon 695 used in the Nord CE 3 Lite also powers the 2022 version. Although this 6nm processor performs rather well for its class, it cannot compete with Snapdragon chips from the 7-series or the newest Dimensity chips. The video recording resolution limitation of 1080p At 30fps, which seems out of place for a 108MP camera, is one of its main drawbacks.

The OxygenOS 13.1 (Android 13) operating system allows users to add 8GB of virtual RAM on top of the 8GB of basic RAM that OnePlus increased at least this year. One may choose between 128GB and 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage, and there is also a hybrid microSD slot that can accommodate a second SIM or a memory card up to 1TB.



The Nord CE 3 Lite’s screen was also replaced by OnePlus additional the camera. A 6.72″ LCD with FHD+ resolution (20:9, 8-bit) and refresh rates of 120Hz and 240Hz are included. Its max brightness is 680 nits, with a usual brightness of 550 nits. A Gorilla Glass layer shields the display (version unknown).


The thickness of the phone has decreased somewhat to 8.3mm (down from 8.5mm). It continues to weigh 195g. Pastel Lime and Chromatic Gray are the two colors that are available at launch.

The battery still has a 5,000mAh capacity after being reduced by 0.2mm. The battery has seen the most improvement since the camera because it now supports 67W SuperVOOC. So that a flat battery may be charged to 80% in 30 minutes (as opposed to 50% with the 33W technology of the previous model). The battery should last you four years of daily charging thanks to the SuperVOOC Endurance Edition, which prevents overcharging and slows down battery ageing.
