However, the rumor mill has been churning out some speculations surrounding the OnePlus Meili lately. The smartphone is currently under the testing phase in India and will go official in the country soon. Despite the lack of an official confirmation, the word on the street is that the handset will debut as the OnePlus Nord 3 smartphone.
