OnePlus 3 rumored to be unveiled on April 7th; specs leak from AnTuTu

Alleged specs of the OnePlus 3, rumored to be unveiled on April 7th

You might recall the big deal made last year by OnePlus when it unveiled the OnePlus 2 in VR. We don't expect anything like that this year when the company unveils the OnePlus 3. The latest rumor has the phone being officially introduced on April 7th during a OnePlus event in Beijing. And thanks to a trip through the AnTuTu benchmark site, we have an idea of what to expect from the phone in the way of specs.

The OnePlus 3, model number A3000, features a 5.5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 820 chipset carrying a quad-core CPU (offering Qualcomm's home made Kryo cores), and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. A 16MP camera adorns the back of the device, and an 8MP front-facing camera is used to shoot selfies and video chats. OxygenOS, based on Android 6.0.1, is pre-installed.

OnePlus had positioned the OnePlus 2 as the 2016 Flagship Killer, but that turned out to be false bravado on the part of the manufacturer. Perhaps that is why OnePlus is being low key with the OnePlus 3.

For now, you can use a pencil to draw a circle around the rumored April 7th date. Once we see more evidence that the OnePlus 3 will be introduced on that date, you can draw another circle using a pen.


Thanks for the tip!

I hope this one turns out good for them cause a device, anything, like last year's OP2 will be a failure!
On second though, there's not much that can go wrong this time. If they learned their lesson.

I just hope they don't use that "Magnesium" body thing again. :-/

The display on Oneplus One and Two are very much washed out, just painful to look at. One of my main reasons to get rid of that phone. Hope they'll use an AMOLED panel in the Three, as in Oneplus X.

I never had any complaints about my OnePlus One's screen until I got my Nexus 6. Wow, what a difference.

I just went from OPO to s7 edge, the difference is huge...

To the contrary, I dislike AMOLED displays and love what I have on my OPO.

And why exactly is that you dislike AMOLED displays?

Most the AMOLED displays I've seen have the weird rainbow shade when on an angle, and I'm not a huge fan of the colours on a lot of AMOLED screens I've laid eyes on so far. Not to say all are bad though, seeing the S6/7 made me pretty happy to see it's colour balance. However something like the 6P I didn't enjoy and turned me away from that phone.

LG G3 has a quite low contrast too, so it's not much of a difference i think.

It had better viewing angles though

Ya the screen is dull, until you root it and mess with hugh, contrast and saturation. Then the screen is beautiful - it just needs to be tuned. And thats the beauty in the devices - easy to work on with top notch parts for half the price.

1080p scares me a bit. Hopefully it will be 5.2" or less to keep the screen sharp.

Hoping it to be like the oneplus one and not a fail like the two.

326 ppi and higher is sharp 1080p on 5.5 is no big deal bruh.

326 PPI looks like poop unless you have big fat spectacles. Look at the notification shade on the iPhone. The text looks heavily pixelated.

Yeah but 1080p at 5.5in is 401 ppi which is plenty sharp I promise. A new 1080p panel will be better than panels from 2013-2014 that's for sure.

im currently looking at my iPhone 5s and i still can't see that heavily pixelated text you were talking about. i mean i know 326ppi is nothing to write home about but its noooooo way near being "poop".

i'm confused, like i'm actually using the smallest font available. what even---????? over exaggerated much maybe? lmao.

IDK man. Good for you. I honestly see that. It's not apparent on the plus variants though. But 327 PPI looks like poop to me.

Maybe you're old with spectacles. Maybe I'm just spoiled. My word against yours. But a 1080p screen looks way shaper than a 327 PPI one.

I think you're spoiled. Perception is big. Distance you view these things at is important. Panel quality is key. I rather a really high quality 350ppi panel than a so-so 441ppi.

IPhone screens look good. Most screens today, w/o regards to color metrics, are sharp enough

i can't see any pixelation(tried with same viewing distance) on my iPad Mini 2 too, despite it's 326 ppi screen.
i thought it's easier to see pixelation on bigger display?
it's just as sharp as my 441 ppi 5" 1080p phone.

I have an air 2 which is pretty pixelated while displaying text.

Still have a OnePlus One as a spare phone, still looks good and not pixelated at all compared to my Galaxy S6.

401ppi wouldn't put me off buying a OnePlus 3.

My Pixel C has 308 ppi display and that seems fine as well.

Just because you can't see pixelation doesn't mean no one can.

I wouldn't exactly say 326 ppi looks like poop, it is not bad.. i can absolutely see pixels though... espcially in the cell service bar area on iOS on iOS devices that have this PPI(6,6s,5s, etc)... I can't really see pixels when you are higher resolution but I can still see the difference between 1080p at 5.5 inches and quad HD at 5.5 inches

1080p on a 5.5" screen is plenty sharp, 2k on a screen that size is just a numbers game. If you can't get past that, you're deluding yourself, and sacrificing battery life.

"1080p on a 5.5" screen is plenty sharp, 2k on a screen that size is just a numbers game." Hahahaha. NO!

Maybe QHD(2.5K) is useless on a 5" screen. But on a 5.5", 1080p gets pretty thin. I definitely am not buying a phone below 424 PPI ( which my G2 has, and it isn't so sharp).

Also QHD allows you to watch 1440p videos on Youtube(higher bitrate makes it look better), and QHD screenshots look real nice.Also DPI allows you to fit much more on a QHD screen.

Yeah well the display panel on the G2 is from 2013 it wasn't to sharp to begin with. I can tell you now, my 5.5in 1080p iPhone 6s plus looks way sharper and better than my grandmothers new nexus 5 which has a 5in 1080p screen it even looks better than my old 5in one M8.

That's true, but oneplus isn't known for high quality panels to begin with.

And the 6s plus screen isn't sharper than nexus 5. It just looks better because of much better saturation and color grading.
