Two Nord products have gone official worldwide recently and are scheduled to go on open sale in the Philippines soon.
The OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G and OnePlus Nord Buds 2 will become available in the country on April 21, a few days after they are set to roll out to stores in India, Singapore, and Malaysia, but a week before they are released in Thailand. In fact, two unnamed OnePlus devices are already listed on the OPPO sub-brand’s official stores on Lazada and Shopee.
OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G
The successor to the Nord CE 2 Lite 5G brings a sharper camera, support for faster charging, and a larger display this time around.
Instead of 64 megapixels, the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G’s main sensor on the back is already at 108 megapixels, complemented with a 9-in-1 pixel-binning technology for absorbing more light and thus resulting in brighter, more colorful images.
The battery capacity is still 5,000mAh, but wired-charging support is now up from 33 watts to 67 watts. And with SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition charging and Battery Health Engine tech, you should be able to get a longer battery lifespan as well as prevent overcharging.
The OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G also has the biggest screen of any Nord series smartphone thus far at 6.72 inches. The panel’s adaptive and can automatically go from as low as 30Hz to as high as 120Hz. It boasts a 240Hz touch-sampling rate for better touch response, too.
In India, the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage model is priced at ₹19,999 (roughly P13,319 or $244), while the unit with double the storage costs ₹21,999 (P14,649 or $269).
