OnePlus Nord 3 gets a massive discount, available for under ₹20,000 during Amazon sale. Should you buy?

OnePlus Nord 3 is available for a price of ₹19,999 during the Amazon Monsoon Mobile Mania sale, making it a compelling deal for anyone looking to buy a new device under the ₹25,000 price bracket.

OnePlus is all set to launch its Nord CE 4 Lite smartphone in India at an event on June 24. However, prior to that event, last year's OnePlus Nord 3 has now received a massive discount on Amazon which takes the price of smartphone to below 20,000.

OnePlus Nord 3 price in India:

During the Amazon Monsoon Mobile Mania sale, the OnePlus Nord 3 with 8GB RAM/128GB storage is listed at a price of 19,999. Moreover, the price goes down even further for users who can pay using Amazon Pay ICICI Bank or DBS Bank cards.

To recap, the OnePlus Nord 3 was launched in July 2023 at a price of 33,999. Now, with the discounted price, the Nord 3 may end up undercutting the recently launched Nord CE 4 and the upcoming Nord CE 4 Lite.

OnePlus Nord 3 specifications:

The OnePlus Nord 3 sports a 6.74-inch AMOLED display with a 1080p resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. The panel is capable of supporting HDR10+ and is safeguarded by Dragontrail glass for added protection.

The mid-range smartphone is powered by the MediaTek's Dimensity 9000 chipset, coupled with a maximum of 16GB LPDDR5X RAM and up to 256GB UFS3.1 storage. The device runs on OxygenOS 13.1, built on the Android 13 platform and comes with promised 3 years of operating system updates and 4 years of security updates.

The OnePlus Nord 3 is available in two color options: Tempest Gray and Misty Green. The Tempest Gray variant features a textured matte finish, while the Misty Green version has a slightly glossy appearance. The phone is constructed with a flat chassis made of Corning Gorilla Glass 5, and its outer frame is composed of plastic material. Notably, the Nord 3 includes convenient features such as an alert slider and an IR blaster. Additionally, the device is IP54 certified, providing a certain level of protection against dust and water.

In terms of photography capabilities, the Nord 3 is equipped with a triple camera system consisting of a 50MP wide lens (Sony IMX890/OIS), an 8MP ultrawide lens, and a 2MP macro lens. On the front, there is a 16MP camera for capturing selfies and video calls.

Should you buy OnePlus Nord 3 at 19,999?

The OnePlus Nord 3 was probably a bit overpriced at 33,999, but with a price tag of under 20,000, it's a must-buy. Although the Dimensity 9000 chipset that powers the Nord 3 is almost 3 years old, it is still better than most of the SoC's found under the 25,000 price segment.

In fact, the Nord 3 is more powerful than the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 that powers the Nord CE 4, which was launched just 2 months ago. With a reported Antutu score of over ten lakh, the Nord 3 comfortably beats its newly launched sibling, which can only manage scores in the eight lakh range.

There are some other obvious advantages here too, including a glass sandwich design, a better camera, faster RAM and storage, and the presence of the alert slider (absent from the CE lineup). Beyond the OnePlus lineup, the Nord 3 at this price should be a compelling device for anyone looking to buy a smartphone for under 25,000 right now.
