Popular smartphone maker OnePlus has launched their latest flagship called the OnePlus 3. The phone is the successor to the OnePlus 2 which followed the ‘Flagship Killer’ OnePlus One. The OnePlus 3 looks completely different when compared to its siblings. The phone has a metal unibody design unlike any other OnePlus phone.
The OnePlus 3 gets a 5.5 inch Full HD AMOLED display, a first for a OnePlus flagship. The display is protected with Gorilla Glass 4. The internal of the phone mean serious business. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor which is a Quad Core chip with Kryo cores. The phone also gets 6GB of RAM on board. The Snapdragon 820 is known to be a very powerful processor found in most flagships today.
The OnePlus 3 runs on Oxygen OS which is made by OnePlus and is based on Android Marshmallow. OnePlus offers a lot of customization built into the software for users who love to tweak. The phone also has a fingerprint scanner on the front just like the OnePlus 2. The device also gets NFC connectivity and users will be able to access Android Pay to make payments. The phone has a 16 megapixel camera at the back with a single LED flash. The camera has Optical Image Stabilization and Phase Detection Autofocus. The phone has 64GB of internal storage and there is no way of expanding storage on the smartphone. While both the earlier phones had options for storage, the OnePlus 3 is only available in the 64GB variant.
The metal Unibody on the phone encloses the 3000mAh battery inside the phone. OnePlus may have sacrificed battery capacity in order to make the phone slimmer. The device is available in Graphite as of now and a Soft Gold colour will be launched soon. The OnePlus 2 received a mix response when launched and it may be because of the ‘Invite Only’ that OnePlus used to follow. The phone is available in the 64GB variant only and is priced at Rs. 27,999 in India. In an attempt to leave no stone unturned the Chinese manufacturer has kept the OnePlus 3 on open sale. Hence the phone will be available to anyone who wishes to buy the phone without any hassles.
