Many are eagerly awaiting the release of OnePlus 3 and the rumours and speculations out there have only amped up the anticipation.
Its predecessor, the OnePlus 2 has been out and about for sometime now and the company has also gone ahead and slashed down prices on the variant. This clearly indicates that the OnePlus 2 offering will arrive sooner rather than later. There had been rumours about a possible April 7 launch, which obviously weren’t true. In an interview with CNET, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei revealed that the device will be introduced in late Q2. Fans can now expect the device to be launched sometime in June.
He also went on to share some details about the design stating that they hope the “new design” grabs the attention of consumers, as noted by Know Your Mobile. OnePlus felt that the second offering did not fare as well as the OnePus One when compared in terms of the design alone. So, this time around with the flagship launching in 2016, the company would like to ensure that the device doesn’t fall back in terms of design.
As for the specs, a latest AnTuTu benchmarks leak has given fans some idea about what to expect from the upcoming smartphone. The device could well be equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080p HD display and come powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The cameras onboard are expected to be a 16MP primary imager and an 8MP primary one. The handset will obviously be running the OxtgenOS layered with the latest Marshmallow flavour.
It is quite likely that the company will kick-off with its infamous, by invite-only campaign, which requires users to have received an invite in order to get their hands on the new offering.
