We are just a few days away from the official launch of the OnePlus 3 flagship. The company is already hyping the device, even selling limited 1000 units of the new device earlier today for 2999 Yuan ($456) in China. Unsurprisingly, the limited units were reportedly sold out in a just a matter of a second. Now, the next option for fans is to wait for the official launch of the device, on June 14 (June 15 in China). The company has confirmed that the phone will go on sale the very next day in China (i.e. June 16). And guess what, the company is said to have stocked millions of units for the sale day. The CEO also reaffirmed today that the stock will be adequate.
OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 had very good cameras, so we naturally expect the new generation OnePlus 3 to keep up the tradition of coming with a powerful rear snapper. From the previous TENAA listing, we saw that the phone came with a 16MP sensor at the back. We have also seen a couple of camera samples revealed directly from the company’s CEO. Now, CEO Pete Lau has just revealed three more pictures taken from the OnePlus 3 and they all look quite good. You can check them out from down below. The color reproduction looks really good, and there’s a good amount of detail as well. What do you think?
For the first time, OnePlus is going to release a phone with a metal body. TENAA pictures as well as earlier leaks have pretty much confirmed the metal design on the device. As for the specs, the phone is expected to come with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, powered by the mighty Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor. For memory, you can expect 4GB /6GB RAM versions with 64GB of inbuilt storage. At the back, the phone is said to come with a 16MP camera while up front you will find an 8MP shooter. The battery is going to be of decent capacity — 3000mAh but the highlight is most likely going to be the VOOC fast charging technology (still unconfirmed). As for software, the phone should run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow based on OxygenOS (HydrogenOS in China).
As the release is nearing, expect more details about the phone soon.
