OnePlus. It has been a long story where it all started from a company that came from nowhere and is currently ruling the flagship killer market right now. The OnePlus one grabbed the headlines and the market back in 2013 when it launched its first smart phone. There were a couple of reasons for it to happen: Firstly because of the price at which it delivered and secondly the specs it delivered at that price.
After that, there were a series of the launch of phones which includes the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X.
So here’s OnePlus 3 latest news:
OnePlus 3 leaks: Release date
Unlike other manufacturers like Apple where they launch their products in a specific time, OnePlus doesn’t have a specific period. The release date for OnePlus 3 is not specific, because the OnePlus one launched towards the end of April 2013 and so on.
According to the Co-Founders and the officials of OnePlus, the said OnePlus can be expected by the end of the next quarter which is around June. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 3 release date in India could be different than the global release date, which may take a week or two to release in India.
OnePlus 3 leaks: Specs and design
According to various sources, there’s a chance for OnePlus 3 to pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. The OnePlus 3 specifications are almost similar and competitive against to the Xiaomi MI5.
OnePlus 3 Specs:
As you can see, the specs are as follows:
Snapdragon 820 processor
16MP rear shooter
8MP front shooter
Full metal body
Expandable up to 128GB
1920 X 1080 p display

OnePlus 3 leaked specs
OnePlus 3 Design:
The OnePlus one and OnePlus two were identical in looks and were more similar to each other. But according to OnePlus 3 co-founder Carl Pei, he mentioned the OnePlus 3 will have a NEW DESIGN. Which brings in the question if it is a full metal body and so on.
Comparing to the upgrade in OnePlus one, OnePlus X and OnePlus two, we can see the changes made in them. So we can expect USB type C, fingerprint reader and fast charging capability as seen in their predecessors. But the new features of OnePlus 3 includes iris scanner. Which means if there is iris scanner, there won’t be fingerprint reader and vice-versa.
OnePlus 3 leaks: Display
As we know, Display makes look things crispier and 1080p or FullHD display is more than enough for a 5.5inch display. The OnePlus One and the OnePlus Two offered 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 X 1080 and 441ppi. Which was good looking and of course, the battery also stood accordingly.
But with newer and newer phones releasing, there might be a question whether the OnePlus display will be bumped to Quad-HD display like that of the LG and Samsung.
But according to the leaks, OnePlus 3 will have a Full HD display.
But higher the resolution, higher the price. If OnePlus goes with the Full HD display, there will be a significant price cut when compared to its competitors.
OnePlus 3 leaks: Camera
Here, there will be a huge upgrade (Should be) due to the high competition in the best camera phones. OnePlus one and OnePlus two had pretty good camera. We can expect OnePlus 3 camera to increase the MP on the front camera to 8MP which can be already seen in the OnePlus X’ camera. And the rear camera of the OnePlus 3 won’t have many drastic changes; there might be an increase in 16MP.
OnePlus 3 leaks: Hardware
Hardware is the one area or place where the OnePlus 3 shines. As we know, the OnePlus one and OnePlus two came with the latest gen chipset at that time of launch. And now, Snapdragon 820 is the latest chipset and definitely, OnePlus 3 will be equipped with the latest Snapdragon 820 processor. And apart from it, we can expect the OnePlus 3 to have 4GB of RAM and battery like its predecessor or more than that. Which is more or above 3300mAh.
The highlight of the phone comes here. Neither OnePlus one or OnePlus two offered SD card expandability option. And we can expect a larger internal storage or ROM and that can be around 128GB if there is no SD card expansion option.
