If you’re looking for the latest OnePlus Nord N30 release date, OnePlus Nord N30 specs, and OnePlus Nord N30 price info (or those of the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G as it is known across much of the world) then look no further.

OnePlus is having a blast in 2024. The company started the year with the OnePlus 11 series, considered the best OnePlus device in the last few years, and won back some of the fans who were partially disappointed in the brand.

Now, the company is back with a budget smartphone, which is predicted to become one of the best budget smartphones of the year.

OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G release date

The OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G was launched on the first week of April (April 4th) in multiple regions (including India and Europe), but the smartphone skipped one of the most lucrative markets, North America. However, we hear rumors about the possibility of the Nord CE 3 Lite 5G launch in the United States, although under a different name.

OnePlus Nord N30 release date estimate (US release)

A member of the OnePlus community has claimed in the forum that the company is gearing up to launch the budget phone in the US under a different name. So, you may see it named as the OnePlus Nord N30 in the states, or OnePlus Nord N30 5G. An upgrade to the previous Nord N20.

The string shared by the community member shows a string that shows a device with the name OnePlus Nord N30 5G, below the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G. But both devices have the same project ID, indicating the same devices with two different names. The community users have also speculated the device will be sold via T-Mobile or Metro by T-Mobile in the US, which makes sense as the carrier and the brand have a past relationship.

Sadly, the actual release date isn’t clear at all at the moment for this OnePlus phone re-brand. We’d say that it’s likely you can look forward to both 128GB and 256GB options for the OnePlus Nord N30, as it may be known in the US.

The OnePlus Nord N30 re-brand should be retailing at a similar level in the US, unless we encounter any unexpected changes to the specs.
