OnePlus is ready to launch the next generation high end device on June 14 after the launch date was confirmed by one of the employees of the company.
The OnePlus 3 is one of the most anticipated devices of 2016. The previous two generations of the device have been the real iPhone killer that the world has been expecting for a long time. OnePlus was able to price their devices like never seen before even while having all the high-end specifications. The trait is expected to be retained on the OnePlus 3, which may be available only through invite system as the predecessors.
The rumored specifications of the upcoming OnePlus 3 hints that the device may be extremely exciting. The main reasons for the excitement is the potential launch of a virtual reality experience associated with the phone. The company recently came out with the virtual reality headset, which was sold in a matter of minutes. The prospect of virtual reality in everyday life may still be some time away, but the focus is primarily on the OnePlus 3.
After manufacturers like Samsung and HTC have come out with high-end android devices to replace last year’s models, OnePlus had to come with a successor. If the upcoming OnePlus 3 is successful, it would mark a hat-trick for the Chinese company. Even though the employee revealed that the phone will be launched on June 14, he did not disclose any other details of the product.
The upcoming OnePlus 3 is expected to come with a 5.5 inch display with full HD resolution. This may be a disappointing aspect since many phones have started going for the QHD resolution as standard on their high-end devices. OnePlus X coming with 1080p resolution may be accepted, but it remains to be seen if the OnePlus 3 can cope with competition that includes phones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the upcoming Apple iPhone 7. In defense of OnePlus, even Apple have resisted the lure to go for higher resolution in the display but they have managed to retain sales figures.
Other aspects of the OnePlus 3 might include a snapdragon 820 processor, 6 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage as standard coupled with a 64 GB optional model, and a battery in excess of 3000 mAh capacity. Leaked pictures of the upcoming OnePlus 3 show that the device may look similar to the HTC One M9.
