OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite: Specs and Features
As revealed earlier, the Nord CE 3 Lite features flat edges, two big rear camera housings, and a punch hole up front. It comes in a refreshing Pastel Lime color, along with the classic Chromatic Gray. The phone has a bigger 6.72-inch LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a screen resolution of 2400×1080 pixels, and a 240Hz touch sampling rate.
Another change is in the camera department. Instead of a 64MP primary shooter, there’s a 108MP main camera with EIS support. It is accompanied by a 2MP macro camera and a 16MP selfie shooter. This is similar to the Nord CE 2 Lite. There are various camera features to try like portrait mode, Nightscape mode, slow-motion videos, dual-view mode, HDR, and time-lapse, among other things.
There’s a 5,000mAh battery on board with support for faster 67W SuperVOOC tech. The Nord CE 2 Lite supports 33W fast charging. The similarity is in the processor. OnePlus uses the Snapdragon 695 SoC, which also powered its successor. The Nord CE 3 Lite is equipped with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. It runs Android 13-based OxygenOS 13. Other details to note are 5G support, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 3.5mm audio jack, dual-band Wi-Fi, USB Type-C, and more.
