OnePlus 3 is expected to be unveiled on June 14, but before that, the smartphone has been subjected to a lot of leaks. The latest one comes in the form of a listing on Chinese telecommunications certification authority, Tenaa, revealing key specs of the smartphone – listed as the OnePlus A3000.
The certification website confirms that the OnePlus 3 runs on Android 6.0.1Marshmallow out-of-the-box. It will sport a 5.5-inch full HD display, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor (thought to be the Snapdragon 820) paired with 4GB of RAM. It comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera, accompanied by an 8-megapixel front lens.
The inbuilt storage variant of the OnePlus 3 listed on Tenaa was 64GB, while the battery is at 3000mAh. The weight was touted at 160gms, and the dimensions at 152.6×74.6×7.3mm. The OnePlus 3 images on Tenaa fall in line with previous leaks and shows off the all metal sleek unibody, and a home button that will house the fingerprint sensor. The smartphone is expected to come in Grey, Black, and Gold colour variants.
Past leaks suggest that the OnePlus 3 will run on the latest Snapdragon 820 SoC, and will reintroduce the controversial NFC feature. OnePlus fans had created lot of chatter when OnePlus dropped the feature on its last year’s flagship OnePlus 2.
OnePlus is expected to unveil its upcoming flagship on a virtual space station. It has already distributed 30,000 Loop VR headsets for a nominal fee, and looks to sell them for Rs. 1 on Amazon from June 3 to June 7. Just ahead of the launch, OnePlus has even slashed the prices of its OnePlus 2, OnePlus One, and OnePlus X devices.
