OnePlus has managed to become a very respected company in a really short period of time. This China-based smartphone manufacturer has been founded back in December 2013, and in April 2014 they’ve released their first smartphone, the OnePlus One. That device has actually managed to surprise quite a few people, and was regarded to be one of the best smartphones of the year. Well, OnePlus has introduced two additional phones last year, the OnePlus 2 flagship, and the OnePlus X mid-ranger. That being said, this company is going to release their third-gen flagship in a couple of months, the company’s co-founder said that we can expect the device to arrive at the end of Q2 this year.
We haven’t exactly seen many leaks / rumors when it comes to the device, but according to the company’s co-founder, we can expect a significantly different design this time around. Speaking of which, a OnePlus 3 concept images surfaced recently, and you can check them out if you take a look in the gallery down below. Keep in mind this is not a leak of the actual device, but just a bunch of concept images for you to check out, though the final product might resemble this in the end, who knows. As you can see, the device pictured here does look quite different than all three OnePlus-branded devices, though the power / lock slider button is back here once again, and so is the Type-C USB port. This device features a metal frame, and has a rather large speaker grill on the top. According to rumors, the OnePlus 3 will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, 4GB of RAM and will sport a fingerprint scanner. The device is said to ship with the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core SoC, along with the Adreno 530 GPU for graphics. The 20-megapixel camera has also been mentioned, and you can expect the device to ship with Android Marshmallow with the company’s OxygenOS installed on top of Google’s OS.
That is pretty much it. You can expect to see a lot more rumors / leaks before this device actually gets launched by the company, so stay tuned for that, of course. We’ll make sure to let you know as soon as some additional info surfaces, as always.
