The thumbnail you see is the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite, not the CE 3. We expect them to have a similar design.

Pricebaba has posted live images of the Nord CE 3, showing only a few parts: the cameras on the back, the sides (volume and lock buttons) and a small part of the display.
There's also an Indian Amazon and OnePlus page for the Nord 3 launch. On both the Amazon and OnePlus sites we can only read information about the potential Nord 3, but Pricebaba claims that the CE 3 will also be announced along with the Nord 3.
It has been more than a year ago since OnePlus announced the OnePlus Nord CE 2, a budget phone in the Nord-lineup. Today, on the 4th of March, MySmartPrice in collaboration with OnLeaks has revealed the specifications of its successor: the OnePlus Nord CE 3. According to the leak, the CE 3 should come with a Snapdragon 782G, 8 to 12 GB of RAM and 128 to 256GB of storage. Previously (in the CE 2), OnePlus used a MediaTek Dimensity 900. The display of the CE 3 is a 6.72" full HD+ AMOLED one running at 120Hz. Fortunately, it's an upgrade, going from an LCD to an AMOLED display.
It has three cameras on the back: a 50MP (IMX890) primary sensor and two 2MP sensors, one of which is a 2MP macro camera and the other one is an 8MP ultra-wide camera. In our opinion, and we've seen this in reviews in the past, these 2MP cameras are pretty useless due to their low resolution. The front camera is a 16MP one.
The battery is a large 5000mAh one and can be charged at a whopping 80W, which is 500mAh more than the CE 2 and charging is 15W higher. There is a fingerprint scanner built into the display. The phone is expected to be unveiled in mid-June or early July 2023.
We've reproduced the specs table below, comparing the Nord CE 2 with the CE 3.
