Let us dig deep into the details of the device.
OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite Price & Availability
There is no word on the pricing of the device by the company. However, OnePlus has announced a launch event on April 4th. It is difficult to say if the phone will go on sale on the same day. The company’s first tablet the OnePlus Pad is also available for Pre-Orders. It’s possible that OnePlus could announce the same sale date for Nord CE 3 Lite, OnePlus Nord Buds 2, and the OnePlus Pad.
The leaks suggest a price tag of ₹27,999 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage variant. The actual selling price could be lower than this and we expect it to target the sub-25k price category.
OnePlus is currently running the 5G Upgrade Days. Other benefits of buying a phone from Oneplus’s official website include Free YouTube Premium for 2 months, Exchange programs, an extended warranty, 6 months of Spotify Premium, and more.
Another leak by tipster Abhishek Yadav suggested that the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite base variant could cost around ₹21,999.
OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G Design
OnePlus has recently released a promo video of the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite. The first thing to notice is the Pastel Lime colour. The other thing we can see is that the Alert slider is missing. At the back, there is a left-aligned circular camera module with an LED Flash. Just below that, there is a OnePlus logo. There is a power button on the right edge which probably doubles as a fingerprint sensor, and the volume rockers lie on the left edge.
The smartphone will be available in two colour variants: Pastel Lime and Chromatic Gray.
