The OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite smartphone boasts a 6.71-inch FHD+ resolution screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and a punch-hole design placed at the center. It is equipped with dual stereo speakers for superior audio output, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that also serves as the power button.
Under the hood, the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite is fueled by the Snapdragon 695 chipset and boasts 8GB of RAM, which is supplemented by 8GB of virtual RAM technology. The device offers 128GB and 256GB storage options, and houses a large 5,000mAh battery that supports blazing-fast 67W charging. The smartphone boots on OxygenOS 13.1, which is based on Android 13, and the company has promised to provide two years of OS and three years of security updates to users. The device comes with a range of connectivity options, including 5G, WiFi, Bluetooth 5.3, a USB-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The rear camera system of the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite comprises three lenses, where the primary camera stands out with a massive 108MP resolution. The camera unit is based on the 1/1.67” ISOCELL HM6 sensor, which is capable of producing highly detailed images. The camera has small 0.64µm pixels, which can be binned together at 9-to-1 to create 12MP output, providing a pixel size of 1.92µm, resulting in sharper and more vibrant images compared to its predecessor, the Nord CE 2 Lite, which had a 64MP/0.7µm sensor.
The primary camera also supports up to 3x lossless zoom and up to 6x digital zoom. The other two lenses on the rear camera are a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. It’s important to note that despite being labeled as CE and Lite, the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite’s 108MP camera is a noteworthy addition, and there is no other significant camera on the back of the device.
