In the past few days, OnePlus 3 has been subjected to quite a few leaks. According to the latest renders and specs, the new handset has already been spotted in the wild. The release date is yet to be confirmed but thankfully, a tipster has leaked some new information regarding the device.
The Loop VR headset was recently launched and also sold out and a OnePlus representative was asked about the official launch of OnePlus 3. According to this representative, OnePlus 3 will be launched on 14th June via the company’s VR launch experience.
What are the latest specs in this upcoming flagship device? A recent leak indicates that this device will sport a 5.5inch Full-HD screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. It will have a 16megapixel rear camera and 64 gigabytes of on-board storage. Thankfully, it will support NFC this time and will run on Android N, once it has been made official by Google.
The specifications are yet to be confirmed but we are simply three weeks away from knowing the officially confirmed details. Considering OnePlus’ reputation in the past, this upcoming device should be yet another flagship killer.
According to GizmoChina, the upcoming OnePlus 3 will cost 1999 Yuan which should roughly translate to 211 pounds. A 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage variant will be available, at a slightly higher price. The first phone to receive a VR launch was the OnePlus 2 and the company is planning to up the ante with the upcoming OnePlus 3.
OnePlus wrote on its blog that the tech industry has merely scratched the surface when it comes to Virtual Reality. People should get ready for much more immersive experiences in the future. The company was inspired by a certain fan video and they imagined where the company would be after many years.
In order to view the launch, the company is giving away 3000VR headsets. However, this time, these are proper VR headsets instead of just Cardboard viewers. What you need to pay for, is postage and which starts from 2.99 pounds in the UK.
The most trusted tipster of the internet is Evan Blass (@evleaks) and therefore, you can expect that OnePlus 3 will feature a Snapdragon 820 processor, 6GB RAM, 16MP camera with NFC and 64GB of storage.
A recently discovered AnTuTu benchmark confirmed the presence of 6GB RAM. Reports indicate that the 4GB RAM variant will have 32GB of storage while the 64GB variant runs on 6GB of RAM.
The 64-bit quad-core chip offers great performance along with higher battery efficiency. It will come with Adreno 530 graphics and will support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. Reports indicate that this device will feature a full-HD display.
It makes sense as the devices come with high-end specifications and mid-range prices. Recently, @evleaks also confirmed that OnePlus 3 will feature an AMOLED display. OnePlus 3 could also come with Oppo’s VOOC fast-charge technology and this should recharge its 3500mAh battery in a matter of 15 minutes.
In a recently leaked photograph, it was seen that the OnePlus 3 features an aluminum case with antenna bands on the top and bottom of this device. In the center of the rear case, it has a square camera module and there is an LED flash located below it.
Sadly, it seems like laser autofocus is absent. A USB Type-C port is available and it features a three-stage alert slider along with a front-facing fingerprint reader. The device will run on 3000mAh battery. From the looks of it, the OnePlus 3 seems like a bizarre mix of iPhone 6S and the HTC One M9.
