OnePlus 3 had been rumored to be set for an April 7 release date, however, the company moved in to quash away these rumors.
It has now emerged that the said date will not be used to unveil a new OnePlus 3 smartphone, but still, the Chinese OEM hasn’t mentioned a thing about what to expect from the event. But since it is meant for the Chinese market, chances are that a new HydrogenOS version might be released on this date.
Even though there is still no specific date of when to expect the successor to last year’s OnePlus 2 will be released, a new AnTuTu benchmark leak has something for you. Thanks to the leaked images, we now have a picture of what the OnePlus 3 will pack under the hood, among other specifications.
Leaked OnePlus 3 specs
According to the latest reports coming from China, the rumored OnePlus 3 will come with model number A3000 and as expected, it will be powered by the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software. If all remains true, the flagship will pack the newest Snapdragon 820 chipset under the hood in addition to the latest Adreno 530 GPU as well as a flagship RAM of 4GB. The phone will offer 32GB of onboard storage.
As far as the display is concerned, it seems Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will still lead the way thanks to the fact that OnePlus 3 will reportedly feature a 5.5-inch screen with 1080p resolution and no room for Always-On display. On camera matters, the phone is expected to house a 16MP lens on the rear and another 8MP sensor on the front.
As mentioned earlier, there are no specific release date details about this device, however, the company, through co-founder Carl Pei, has promised that it will deliver a device that is aimed at keeping with the already established standards of the OnePlus smartphone brand, or, at least, something close to it. Samsung came in with devices that resembled last year’s models a lot, maybe this is the same path that OnePlus will take as far as the new OnePlus 3 is concerned. If this is true, then we might see a device that is very similar to last year’s OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X in terms of design but packs slightly different hardware under the hood.
As opposed to earlier cases where one had to buy a OnePlus smartphone through exclusive invitations, the OnePlus 3 will be sold in traditional style as the company looks to expand its market to other parts of the world.
