OnePlus 3 will soon meet us, probably at the start of June. But that doesn’t stop the numerous leaks that crop up online. The latest information about the OnePlus flagship comes via the noted leaker, Evan Blass, who revealed a screenshot of the upcoming device along with a few specs details as well.
According to the new screenshot, the OnePlus 3 is seen running on an Android N preview build. The model number is RAIN A3000, the same model that we saw on the benchmarks a few weeks back. The phone seems to be running on the Oxygen version 3.1.0 along with the kernel version 3.10.84. This is clearly a preview build running on the new handset, but expect the Android Marshmallow version out of the box when the phone is released. You will probably get to play around with Android N after it’s released and the phone is updated via OTA.
While evleaks is known to release credible information about upcoming smartphones, some users at XDA claim that the kernel version should be updated, as well as the Oxygen OS version. We aren’t sure whether this is fake or not but the info seems to match with the earlier leaks. He added that the phone will come with Snapdragon 820 with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 64GB storage, 16MP rear camera and for some, the most important feature — NFC.
The screen resolution of 1080p might be great for the battery, but when it comes to things like VR, it falls short of the requirement. We have time and again seen that 2K is the minimum resolution to enjoy VR in good clarity, and when OnePlus is so focused on VR, we wonder whether the new flagship will be limited to Full HD resolution.
Well, there are two variants reported, one with 4GB RAM and another with 6GB RAM. Maybe one of the variants would come with 2K display. We can’t be sure of that at the moment, but let’s wait for more details.
