There have been reports circulating with claims that OnePlus 3 is running out of supply when it comes to AMOLED display panels.
This came in after some people who had reportedly ordered OnePlus 3 handsets were told the phone will take 3-4 weeks to ship as the company had run out of AMOLED display screens. Well, according to the company’s co-founder Carl Pei, there won’t be any changes to the design materials used on the original OnePlus 3 and the handsets that are still in production.
The tech mogul took to an online forum with a teasing message indicating that AMOLED is much better than LCD panels. The “AMOLED>LCD” post was later on followed by a Twitter post that was aimed at shading more light on the circulating rumors. Pei was clear that the company will be sticking with the Optic AMOLED panels for its foreseeable future.
The company further went on to confirm that OnePlus 3 was still in production and there are still no plans of refreshing the flagship. This is in line with the rumors that there is a OnePlus 3S or OnePlus 3 Plus model in the making. Apparently, the flagship is expected to come with the latest hardware and software, which include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 and Android 7.0 Nougat, just to name but a few.
The contradicting part of the rumor is that this OnePlus 3 successor will carry an LCD screen, which, as the company has confirmed, is not true.
OnePlus 3 was released this year and comes with a price tag of just $399. For this, you get a decent handset that features a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED screen with 1080p resolution and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Under the hood, the phone packs monster specs in the shape of Snapdragon 820, 6GB RAM and 64GB of non-expandable storage. The phone has a decent 16MP snapper on the back with all the camera goodies you can expect, including OIS and HDR. The front sensor has an 8MP sensor with the ability to record 1080p videos.
This OnePlus 3 flagship has a 3000mAh battery that can be fast-charged via a USB Type-C port, runs on Android Marshmallow and has a fingerprint scanner, among other perks.
