OnePlus Nord 3: Next-gen premium mid-range Android smartphone launch teased in new community post
OnePlus has announced that "the Next Nord" is the subject of its latest crowd-sourced product-testing program. Therefore, the mid-range line's next flagship might be up for grabs for a handful of lucky would-be citizen reviewers.
The OEM's Lab initiative offers a small number of lucky OnePlus Community members the chance to get their hands on a potentially in-demand device in advance, so long as they commit to the production of a review on the product in question.
Accordingly, it has come to form a final phase in such a product's pre-launch hype campaign. The Nord 3's ostensible Lab application process runs from now until June 25, 2023, culminating in the selection of 6 reviewers in either Europe, India or APAC who will have from June 28 until an undisclosed date in July to post their content.
Therefore, as the Lab's results are often published in sync with the launch of the device in question, this is a strong enough indication that the Nord 3 will indeed debut in July 2023 and is, unlike its N30 sibling, not intended for the North American market.
