The OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G and OnePlus Nord Buds 2 TWS earphones are now official in the Philippines, with both devices going live for preorders beginning tomorrow, April 21.
Locally, the Nord CE 3 Lite 5G, OnePlus‘ latest affordable 5G smartphone, is priced at P14,990 (about $267 converted). It will be available in Pastel Lime and Chromatic Gray colors. The OnePlus Nord Buds 2, on the other hand, costs P3,990 ($71) and will arrive in Lightning White and Thunder Gray colorways. Both will be out in stores starting May 5.
You may also get any of the two products on Lazada beginning April 21 and opt for 0% interest installment for 45 days via LazPayLater.
Want to buy on Shopee instead? The duo will go up for sale on the platform starting April 26, where you can avail yourself of 0% interest installment for three months via SPayLater.
As a special offer, in-store customers who purchase the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G from April 21 to May 4 will get to take home a free pair of OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z2 earbuds. Lazada and Shopee customers from the 21st to April 30 will receive the said earbuds as freebies, too.
The OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G pairs a 6nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G chipset with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. The screen measures 6.72 inches and offers a 120Hz refresh rate, 680 nits of peak brightness, and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The battery is rated at 5,000mAh and supports quick charging up to 67 watts. The OPPO sub-brand says the phone should be able to hit 80% battery capacity after just 30 minutes plugged in.
Another attraction here is the 108-megapixel camera paired with a pair of 2-megapixel sensors for portrait and macro shots. For selfies, you get a 16-megapixel camera. It’s the same large sensor found on the back of the realme 10 Pro 5G, which is also equipped with a Snapdragon 695 processor and a 5,000mAh cell, just like the Nord CE 3 Lite 5G.
Meanwhile, the OnePlus Nord Buds 2 promises usable ANC and good performance for the price. The earbuds are pretty lightweight, too, at just 4.7 grams per bud. On paper, it looks like a decent choice for users who are after ANC in their wireless earbuds but don’t want to spend a lot for noise cancellation.
