OnePlus 3 Likely to Hit the Market by the Second Half of the Year

OnePlus 3

To be released as a successor to the OnePlus 2, the OnePlus Three or OnePlus 3 is expected to overcome all the drawbacks of the earlier model.

Slated for a second quarter release in June 2016, the manufacturer has claimed that the smartphone would in all ways be a true flagship killer. In an interview hosted by CNET, co-founder Carl Pei stated that the fourth smartphone from the company would sport a new design, which in turn would make it look unique and give the device a luxurious feel. While Pei refused to indulge in further details, there are various leaked reports or rumors about the captivating specs of this device.Based on Gizmo China’s report from Antutu, a benchmarking software tool, these specs are not only more enhanced but also enhanced when compared to the predecessor. The following are some indications on some features that are anticipated to be encapsulated by OnePlus 3 under its hood.

One of the key attributes that is projected to be the reason for the smartphone’s classy look is its all metal chassis. Added to this, there are statements that OnePlus 3 is going to be water resistant. This can be a great blessing if the handset accidentally comes in contact with water. According to certain reports, the manufacturer will give users the option of choosing from three finishes. Two of these are simple and result in the overall cost of the device being in the mid to high range price tag. The third choice is a more premium variation, which in turn will bump up the price a little. However, there is absolutely no clue on what the three finishes are, although one of them could be a ceramic finish. This is because this finish was a big hit on the company’s OnePlus One. Moreover, unlike almost all other trending handsets, this smartphone will come with a 3,300 mAh battery that is removable.


The OnePlus Three is rumored to feature a 5.5-inch screen with either an AMOLED or an OLED QuadHD screen. It is quite surprising that the manufacturer has not come to a conclusion on the display technology to be used in spite of the release date drawing closer. Either way, the screen will incorporate a fingerprint sensor, a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, and a 401ppi pixel density like its earlier models. Additionally, the handsetwill demonstrate better viewing angles and make use of a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 to protect the screen from scratches.

If the talks going round are true, another vital highlight isthat the company has embraced a really boosted chipset because of the more powerful processor. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset is essentially a quad core processor formed from two dual core Kyro CPU processors that clock at 2.15GHz and 1.6GHz respectively. The Adreno 530 graphics card also ensures smooth performance which makes activities like video viewing a seamless experience. Just like for the finish, it is estimated that OnePlus Three will give you two choices of RAM, based on which the storage space also differs. If you opt for a 4GB handset, you can avail 32GB for internal storage. The 6GB option gives you 64GB inbuilt storage for a higher price. The downside is that the manufacturer is not going to give way to accommodating a memory card. So, if you do not rely on cloud storage, you will have to make do with the limited memory that is featured in your device. There is good news on the operating system used in the sense that the company is all set to release its flagship handset with the latest Android Marshmallow already installed along with its very own OxygenOS. This UI helps you to customize the smartphone the way you wish to.

Per the leaked reports, the handset has portrayed good improvement as far as both its shooters are concerned. It will have a 16MP camera that is an excellent raise over that in the OnePlus 2 counterpart. Noteworthy attributes include dual LED flash, laser focus, and optical image stabilization. The front 8MP snapper has its fair share of interesting features like a front facing flash, a wide angle lens, and better aperture. Going by some rumors, the smartphone will finduse for an iris scanner to make the photography and videography experiences even better.
