Those specs remind us of a familiar real phone we know and love.
Today, (actually, at 12 midnight) OnePlus Philippines officially unveils the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite, a phone with an attractive design (especially the Pastel Lime colour) and 108MP camera. As part of the “Core Edition” subseries, the phone features only the most essential components needed by any user, be it techy or casual. The phones are designed to be all-rounders so they could game, be used for long trips, take great pictures, and watch movies and shows immersively.
To recall, the Nord CE 3 Lite features a 6.72″ FHD+ IPS LCD screen with 120Hz refresh rate. It uses a chipset that is every company’s favourite: The Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 so you could say this one has 5G services embedded. By default, the phone has 8GB RAM and a choice between 128 or 256GB internal storage. MicroSD Card is an option, another “core” feature that is missing in many flagships, just like the headphone jack, which this phone also has.
There is a 108MP camera which allows for 3x lossless zoom without the need for a telephoto sensor. The secondary camera is designed for depth detection only so you could create portrait shots. It features a 16MP camera as well. The battery here has 5000mAh capacity with 67W fast charging included. According to OnePlus, this charges an empty battery to 80% in just 30 minutes. It charges via USB-C.
As mentioned, it has 5G services as well as Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2. It is slightly cheaper than its near-identical counterpart, the Realme 10 Pro 5G (which is why the specs are so familiar). This one is priced at PHP 14,990 (8/128) as opposed to 16,999 for the Realme 10 Pro 5G. However, that phone has double the storage.
It will be available online starting April 26th but you can pre-order it today in any authorized OnePlus and Oppo stores. When you pre-order until May 4th, the phone will also receive a FREE pair of OnePlus Bullets Wireless Earphones Z2. The phone will start regular sales on May 5th.
Home Credit is also an option with installment options between 6 to 18 months.

OnePlus Nord Buds 2
While the Nord CE 3 Lite has a headphone jack, sometimes going wireless may be a better option. Enter the Nord Buds 2, now with Active Noise Cancellation for up to 25dB! This lovely little number is priced only at Php 3,990.
These earbuds deliver superior bass and realistic and accurate sounds, even for music. It integrates OnePlus’ BassWave technology to make that “superior bass” happen.
