All this while, we have been waiting patiently for OnePlus to reveal a final release date for its new OnePlus 3 flagship. We expected a launch in May, which didn’t happen and therefore we were almost sure that the OnePlus 3 announcement would be sometime in June. Now, the company has made the date official, as OnePlus revealed via its official weibo page that the OnePlus 3 flagship will be announced on June 15. So, it looks like the rumored June 14 release date wasn’t too far off.
What’s even more interesting is that the company will start selling the new flagship a day after the announcement. So, you can purchase the new phone starting June 16. This is surprising given that OnePlus’s Peer Review Program kicks off from June 13 and continue till June 20, which means the regular customers will be able to purchase the device when this review program is going on.
Design and specs wise, we know almost everything about the new device. The phone will be powered by Snapdragon 820 with 4GB / 6GB RAM options and 64GB of internal storage. There will be a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display on board. At the back, the phone will feature a 16MP Rear camera while up front, you get an 8MP shooter. Under the hood, you have a 3000mAh battery with fast charging. It is said that we could see OPPO’s super fast VOOC fast charging on board the new device, but this feature is yet to be officially confirmed. As for the design, for the first time, the OnePlus 3 will feature an all metal build. There should be 2.5D glass up front as well as an oval-shaped home button enabled fingerprint sensor.
While we know most of the specs of the device, the official announcement will clear out a few things like pricing, camera features and even its fast charging technology.
So, mark your calendars. June 15 is the day we meet the new OnePlus 3 flagship!
