No dates yet, but it’s coming very soon!
A few weeks after its Indian release, the Nord CE 3 Lite has been confirmed to us by OnePlus that it will be arriving in the Philippines soon! There’s also a teaser on their Facebook that also shows the Nord Buds 2 which was released alongside the phone. By the way, this pair of earbuds is optional, as the phone is equipped with a headphone jack but it’s nice to have options.
In summary, the Nord CE 3 Lite’s main features are its camera and battery. Both of which are “core” features of any smartphone. The Core Edition series emphasizes only the most important non-gimmicky features that a non-techy user might need and that continues here. The phone has a 6.72″ IPS LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. It also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset in it (big surprise, we know), a 108MP Samsung ISOCELL HM6 primary camera, and a 5000mAh battery with a very fast 67W USB-C charging.
As for the Nord Buds 2, shown above, its main feature is the inclusion of Active Noise Cancellation which was not present in the previous iteration. It also has a more premium matte design and includes OnePlus’ BassWave technology that increases bass while also making sounds and music sound the way they are supposed to sound.
This active noise cancellation can filter out up to 25dB of noise. In theory, this would significantly reduce or even completely remove outdoor ambiences such as car honks, people talking, construction sounds, and trains roaring as it passes the station nearby.
These buds are controllable through the HeyMelody app. Just pair these earbuds through the app and you will get customizable controls and an equalizer.
The Nord CE 3 Lite would be available in Pastel LIme (our favourite) and Chromatic Grey. Meanwhile, the TWS earbuds come in Lightning White and Thunder Grey.
Stay tuned and we’ll let you know when the phone is released. Expect that its price will not be above or equal to Php 25K.
