OnePlus one has easily built up its reputation with bang for the buck offerings starting with its first flagship, the One. Since then, the Chinese handset manufacturer has been designing devices with flagship-grade hardware coupled in with lower price. Now that the whole world is now ready for what’s next in the line-up, it looks like the OnePlus 3 will once again take over the world by storm. If the latest benchmark tests are accurate, that is.
A new listing found on AnTuTu benchmark, as reported by 9to5google, details what seems to be the OnePlus A3000, which could also be the purported OnePlus 3. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, which is found on today’s flagship offering such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge and the LG G5. What’s more, it also features 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage to match up the competition.
However, the details on the display are somewhat sparse. It only denotes the resolution, which is 1920 x 1080 full HD, but no word as to how big the screen size will be. Moreover, there’s an
8MP + 16MP info on the list, but it’s unclear if it will be a dual camera combination or just a standard front and back setup.
As far as the operating system goes, the listing shows that the OnePlus 3 will feature Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. Presumably, Oxygen OS, which we’ve also seen on past OnePlus device, will also arrive on top of it.
It’s speculated that OnePlus will be officially unveiling its upcoming flagship on an April 7 event. According to a report from Android Authority however, the company’s event on that date will focus on the Chinese market rather than a new product announcement. OnePlus hasn’t been consistent in releasing its flagship handsets. The One was released on April 23, 2014, while the OnePlus 2 was launched on July 28, 2015. It seems we just have to wait until the company announces themselves when the upcoming flagship will launch.
