OnePlus 3 to Launch in June 2016
It has been three months into 2016 and we have heard very little about OnePlus’ next flagship killer. We’ve so far received small hints that the company is working on a OnePlus 3 device, but now we have some more to add to that. According to co-founder and CEO Pete Lau, the OnePlus 3 will be ready and available by June this year. This he said during the SURGE tech conference in Bangalore, India.
Add to this, the other co-founder of OnePlus, Carl Pei has confirmed that the OnePlus 3 will sport a whole new design. Though nothing more has been said on the design front and we’ll just have to wait for leaked images to have a better idea of what OnePlus plans to offer.
What we can definitely take away from this is that the OnePlus 3 will stay away from the OnePlus One and 2. The OnePlus 2, much like its predecessor, received very positive reviews and fans found very few faults with the handset. The OnePlus 2 mainly found criticism regarding overheating issues, thanks to the Snapdragon 810 processor.
From what we’ve heard so far, the new OnePlus device will sport a 5.5-inch Quad HD display and will come in two variants – one with 3GB of RAM and 16GB storage and the other being 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Rumours also reveal that the handset will arrive with the Snapdragon 820 chipset as most flagship devices this year.
On the camera front, the OnePlus 3 is said to sport a 13MP rear-facing shooter while its front would be of 5MP. The handset is also rumoured to include a removable battery pack MicroSD card support. Early leaked renders of the OnePlus 3 show that the device could feature front speakers and sport a glass back, like the OnePlus X.
So far, the rumoured specifications don’t really offer anything noteworthy. Some of the rumoured specs are similar to the ones found in the OnePlus 2. Seeing as how some of this year’s flagship devices already unveiled feature, at least, one new technology, OnePlus may just have something special for the OnePlus 3. Of course, it’s still early in the day to know anything for sure.
