While the flagship OnePlus 12 is marching closer, there’s also the much cheaper Nord N30 SE which might have slipped under your radar. And according to rumors, this new smartphone might not be so “new” after all, being a potential rebrand instead. Anyways, in this article, let’s delve into the rumored features, specs, and potential launch date of the OnePlus Nord N30 SE.

OnePlus Nord N30 SE Rumours Roundup

The OnePlus Nord N30 SE is not a “new” phone per se but has been rebranded with a new name. It has identical specs to the OnePlus Nord N30 (US) and Nord CE 3 lite (India).

Model and Marketing Name

The new name is merely updated with “SE” which generally stands for “Special Edition”. The Indian variant carries ‘CE’ in its name too which is an abbreviation for Core Edition. Hence, the distinction between the two. The exact purpose of this rebranding is still unknown, but the internet remarks it is to create a buzz around the market as the launch date of the OnePlus 12 is around the corner.

OnePlus Nord N30 Overview

The Nord N30 SE got its certification from the TDRA in the UAE. The certification confirms the phone’s name and gives us its model number as well: CPH2605.


As per the buzz in the tech market, the upcoming OnePlus Nord N30 SE will have the Snapdragon 695 SoC at the helm just like its Indian and US counterparts. The Snapdragon 695 offers high-bandwidth, low-latency connections that enable seamless productivity and entertainment. And at such an affordable price, it isn’t too bad of a choice.
