OnePlus 3 with Snapdragon 820 and 4GB RAM to Launch on 7 April
BENGALURU: OnePlus, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, will be holding an event on 7 April to launch the successor of its current flagship tagged as the OnePlus 3. The Chinese website GizmoChina, has posted what seems to be the Antutu benchmark listing of OnePlus 3. This leak indicates that the smartphone runs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. The smartphone will come with 32GB on-board storage and will feature a 16MP rear camera along with an 8MP front shooter. The display will boast a 1080p resolution and Android 6.0 Marshmallow will handle the software side of the new handset.
While the hardware details seem pretty standard, OnePlus seems to have upped its base storage capacity to 32GB instead of the usual 16GB.
Not much is known about what the OnePlus 3 will look like. Some leaked images of the OnePlus 3 reveal a slimmer design. The front is made of glass while the back appears to be a textured material (which will probably be replaceable). The rest is familiar; a metal frame seems to hold the front and back in place.
In an earlier leak, Chinese social network Weibo mentioned in a report that OnePlus 3 will feature a new design, NFC, fast-charging and will also come equipped with wireless charging.
As noted, OnePlus has successfully managed to establish itself in the Indian market with its previous smartphones and there's a whole lot riding on the next offering from the manufacturer. The smartphone will fight the likes of Xiaomi Mi 5, Moto X Play, Nexus 5X, Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) and Yu Youtopia.
