With the coming of spring and flowers finally blooming, tech companies have taken it upon themselves to celebrate the season with brightly colored phones. Following the launch of the yellow iPhone 14, OnePlus has released a yellow OnePlus Nord C3 Lite 5G. This phone has a reminiscent design as it looks similar to last year’s OnePlus Nord 2T but does not feature the same camera island. Instead, it now has three cameras housed within two circular protrusions.
Of the two protrusions at the rear, the top houses the primary 108MP sensor, and the bottom features two 2MP depth and macro cameras. The primary camera is the phone’s highlight since it is a Samsung sensor using pixel binning to capture 12.5MP images. The camera can also capture images with 3x lossless zoom and 6x digital zoom. However, despite all those pixels, users will be unable to record 4K.
The camera restriction is primarily due to the chip OnePlus decided on, which is an older Snapdragon 695. Due to this, the camera tops out at 1080p with 30fps. On the front of the phone is a large 6.72-inch FHD+ LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate, making it feel snappy and modern. The screen also features a hole punch 16MP selfie camera housed in the center of the display.
Along with the Snapdragon chipset, the CE 3 Lite is available in two configurations with 8GB RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage. There is also expandable UFS 2.2 storage. In terms of battery, the phone comes with a 5000mAh battery that has support for 67W fast charging, which is faster than any budget Android on the market. The phone also supports a headphone jack and dual stereo speakers and will come with Oxygen 13.1 out of the box.
The OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G is expected to cost around €300, with which you can get the 8GB and 128GB configuration phone in either chromatic Gray or Pastel Lime. The Nord Buds 2 will also be launched alongside this phone. These will feature a better sound, ANC, and improved bass.
