OnePlus today unveiled the successor to the OnePlus 2: the OnePlus 3. The 7.3mm thick phone is entirely different with respect to its predecessor in terms of design, departing from the company’s traditional Sandstone texture to a unibody metal construction.
The handset is supposed to be OnePlus’ worst-kept secret of all time since it was exposed in numerous leaks over the last several months.
The OnePlus 3, as expected, is a powerhouse of mobile specs. The handset has a 5.5-inch ‘Optic’ AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 4, and houses a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 820 processor, along Adreno 530 GPU, paired with a massive 6GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage.
Powered by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery, the handset comes with OnePlus’ Dash Charging via USB Type-C. The OnePlus 3 sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and f/2.0 aperture lens, and an 8-megapixel on the front.
The OnePlus 3 is NFC-compatible, something we didn’t see in the previous generation of OnePlus devices; and it does yet come with 3.5mm audio jack.
The pricing for the OnePlus 3 starts at $399 – sans an invite, finally – and comes in ‘Graphite’ and ‘Soft Gold’ variants. It’ll be available to purchase on OnePlus’ website later today, while the attendees to The Loop can buy one right now.
