OnePlus may soon release a new device in the company’s mid-range Nord series. The new phone isn’t a variant of the Nord 2 but is said to be the third phone in the series, possibly dubbed the OnePlus Nord 3.
Tipster Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings) recently spotted a mention of the OnePlus Nord 3 on the brand’s official website earlier this week. Sharma took to Twitter to announce the same. Interestingly, the Nord 3 mention was first spotted on the Indian website, suggesting we might see a launch in India elsewhere before then.
Check out the tweet below.

OnePlus Nord 3: What we know so far
While this looks like the first official reference to the OnePlus Nord 3, this isn’t the first we’ve heard of the device. Weibo Tipster Digital Chat Station previously suggested that the Nord 3 will feature the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chipset and will also come with other upper-mid-range specs, including a 6.7-inch display and a 120Hz refresh rate .
The phone is also expected to share some specs with the recently launched OnePlus 10R. This includes a 50 MP main camera on the back, as well as an 8 MP ultrawide and a 2 MP depth sensor. The phone is also expected to come with a 16-megapixel front camera.
Other expected specs include a 4,500mAh battery and support for 150W fast charging, something we also saw on the OnePlus 10R.
We wouldn’t fully rely on those specs just yet, as they seem too similar to the OnePlus 10R save for the chipset. The phone may launch with a lower chipset compared to the Dimensity 8100, as the Nord series is expected to be a watered-down version of the brand’s number series. However, other specs like the camera setup could be similar to the 10R.
Either way, with the first official mention already on the site and with us approaching the one-year mark since the launch of the OnePlus Nord 2, more official details on the phone, as well as leaks, should be emerging soon.
