It’s been a long time since the OnePlus Nord 3 datasheet was leaked, and since then, the industry’s tippers and media outlets have lost sight of Pete Lau’s “flagship killer.” The OnePlus Nord 3 did, however, surface on the company’s official website just today.
The well-known and renowned Mukul Sharma or @stufflistings, who, as is his habit, shared a screenshot of the OnePlus Nord 3 with the international public via Twitter, was the first to notice the product dedicated to the medium-high-end handset. Currently, only this tiny note appears on the OnePlus India website, with no extra images or pages, suggesting that it is simply a beginning to its eventual entrance on the Indian national market, followed by the worldwide market.

Surprisingly, MySmartPrice exclusively reported the start of “OnePlus Meili” tests in India at the end of April 2022, likely the same successor to the OnePlus Nord 2 with a different code name. Some essential technical details would have been taken up by the people they contacted, such as rapid charging at 80W – if not 150W –, the MediaTek Dimensity 8000 chipset, and a 6.7″ FullHD + AMOLED display at 120Hz.
Our recommendation is the same as always: proceed with care and wait for the first official data from OnePlus. In the meantime, the OnePlus Nord Buds earphones have been released in India.
