While those of us here in the States await the arrival of the OnePlus 10 Pro, the company is already gearing up for its next phone launch. No, this won’t be the OnePlus 10, but instead, is expected to be the OnePlus Nord 3.

Previously, we’ve seen rumors point to OnePlus adopting some flagship features found in other devices, including an improved main rear camera, and even up to 150W wired charging speeds. But a new leak from Digital Chat Station (via GSMArena) gives us the full picture of what the Nord 3 could bring:

  • Display: 6.7-inch AMOLED FHD+
  • Processor: MediaTek Dimensity 8100
  • RAM: 12GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Front Camera: 16MP
  • Rear Cameras: 50MP IMX766 (Main), 8MP (Ultrawide), 2MP (Monochrome)
  • Battery: 4,500mAh
  • Extras: In-display fingerprint scanner, 120Hz Refresh Rate, 150W charging, X-axis linear haptic motor

Not much else is known about the Nord 3 so far, but we are expecting to see it arrive in different markets sometime this Summer. It also doesn’t seem as though OnePlus will bring its third-generation Nord to the U.S., as OnePlus is content with only making it available in select regions.

It will be interesting to see what the final product looks like, and how well the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 will stand up. We’re also interested in how much the phone will cost and whether OnePlus passes on some of the cost of its faster charging to its potential customers.

Given that there don’t seem to be any plans to launch a “normal” OnePlus 10, the Nord 3 might just end up being the best OnePlus phone for anyone that doesn’t want a flagship experience. But the company has some stiff competition as Realme is performing extremely well, and Xiaomi’s Redmi line is also quite impressive.
