OnePlus enthusiasts in India have reason to rejoice as the company has officially confirmed the launch of its highly anticipated Nord series smartphone, the OnePlus Nord 3. The mid-range device is expected to succeed the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G, which made waves in the Indian market last year. While unofficial reports had been circulating about a July release, OnePlus’s recent post on its community forum has finally put all speculations to rest.
The revelation came in the form of a post about OnePlus’ renowned “The Lab” campaign, where tech enthusiasts get the opportunity to review the company’s handsets before their official launch. In this post, OnePlus not only confirmed the upcoming phone’s name as the OnePlus Nord 3 but also outlined the requirements for participants in the program. The selected reviewers will have to submit their comprehensive reviews of the shared handsets by July, with the reviews subsequently being published. However, the specific launch date was not disclosed in the post. Only six fortunate users will be chosen to review the much-anticipated Nord product.
Earlier rumors had suggested a June release for the OnePlus Nord 3, and leaked images of the alleged smartphone and its packaging added fuel to the speculation. However, with the official confirmation of a July launch, OnePlus fans can now eagerly await the unveiling of this exciting device.

Rumors Suggest iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max to Feature 5x Optical Zoom
As we already know the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s tetraprism camera comes with 5x optical zoom. But now, Apple is planning to add it in both Pro models of iPhone 16 i.e. iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max.
This is a rumor that we have already heard from many big sources such as MacRumors, Taiwanese research firm Trendforce, and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In today’s press release, Taiwanese research firm Trendforce has adverted regarding this.
Following the successful launch of the iPhone 15 Pro Max with its exclusive Tetraprism telephoto zoom lens, the industry is expected to see an increase in the adoption of periscopic lens modules. Apple plans to bring this advanced hardware upgrade to the iPhone 16 Pro, making it accessible to more users in the Pro series.
The design of the tetraprism camera system in the iPhone 15 Pro Max is folded due to which it can be easily fitted into the smartphone. This tetraprism camera system enables 5x optical zoom and 25x digital zoom. The Pro Max models of iPhones i.e. iPhone 15 Pro Max have a bigger display size i.e. 6.7 inches.
But, on the other hand, if we talk about the Pro models i.e. iPhone 15 Pro, then the display is 6.1 inches as like the iPhone 15 which is small if we compare it with Pro Max. So, as per rumors, Apple will increase the size of the iPhone 16 Pro from 6.1 inches to 6.3 inches to fit the tetraprism camera system in the Pro model of the iPhone 16.
