OnePlus 3 to Continue with AMOLED Panels, Confirms OnePlus

OnePlus 3 AMOLED Panels

OnePlus has confirmed that the company has no plans to stop production of the OnePlus 3 and bring in a slightly improved model in order to overcome the production constraints.

At the moment, the OnePlus 3 has an extremely long waiting period of more than two weeks. Since there are several other capable smartphones that could potentially take up its place, it is thought that OnePlus was concerned about the long waiting periods. As a result, recent rumors suggested that the company was considering on changing the OnePlus 3’s display primarily to overcome the shortage of AMOLED screens.

The 5.5 inch AMOLED display on the OnePlus 3 initially drew criticism for the oversaturated colors, but the company quickly fixed the issue with a simple update. The panels for the OnePlus 3 are being sourced from Samsung, who is one of the world’s largest AMOLED display makers. Slow availability of the new display panels has meant that the production capacity has struggled to meet with the demand. It has led to OnePlus 3 models facing a waiting period of almost 2 weeks. Hence, it was rumored that OnePlus 3 would be relaunched with a LCD panel and a couple of other features to overcome for the loss of the AMOLED screen.

Therumored model would either be called as the OnePlus 3 Plus or even the OnePlus 4 according to reports. Company co-founder Carl Pei, though, has just dismissed those rumors once and for all by claiming that the company does not plan a shift from the AMOLED technology at least in the foreseeable future. It means that the OnePlus 3 will continue to be available and the rumors of a new version may just die down.

Launched at a price of $399, the OnePlus 3 has been one of the biggest hits of 2016. It has been branded as the true iPhone killer in every sense. Apart from supporting this large display, the phone also comes with one of the fastest fingerprint sensors around. It is also fairly accurate and can open the phone in less than 0.2 seconds. Once into the fresh android marshmallow operating system, it is refreshing to witness that OnePlus has not come up with a lot of bloatware on the device. The stock android-like feel on the Oxygen OS is only enhanced by the couple of customization options available.

The dash charging, though, remains as the highlight feature on the OnePlus 3.
