The basic specifications of the long rumored OnePlus 3 may have leaked online, via a new AnTuTu benchmark data that was released recently.
According to a report by Giz China, the leaked benchmark data showed that the new OnePlus 3 has a model number of OnePlus A3000 and boots on the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It runs under the new Snapdragon 820 chipset, with an Adreno 530 GPU for the graphics. It sports a 5.5-inch display with a 1080p Full HD resolution. In terms of cameras, the device is equipped with 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel rear and front cameras. The OnePlus 3 packs 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The device, rumor had it, will be launched in a company event on April 7.
However, OnePlus recently confirmed that the April 7 event will have nothing to do with the new flagship.
To recall, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei previously announced via an interview with CNET Spanish that the long rumored new flagship device form the Chinese company would come sometime around by the end of the second quarter of this year.
While Pei was not able to give away any specific details regarding the upcoming flagship release, he did say that with the new flagship coming soon, the company intends to replicate the same captivating feeling that their first smartphone, the OnePlus one, left on its users when it was first releasedor at least something that is even close to it, he said.
With that, Pei hinted on a possible major design overhaul, which possibly means that the upcoming OnePlus 3 would look greatly different from how the most recent releases, OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus X, looked like.
Pei also hinted on the company’s desire to try “more traditional” ways of selling their devices. In the past, OnePlus stuck with an exclusive and elusive invite system, which gave its products an air of exclusivity. Also, Pei said that with the upcoming flagship, the company aims to release the device in even more markets than what they had in the past.
