Flagship Killer? Purported OnePlus 3 benchmarks suggest a version with 6GB RAM
posted by Ben R. / Apr 25, 2016, 2:10 PM
According to the new findings, models A3000 and A3003 will pack Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor, which isn't too much of a surprise. What is rather eye-opening, however, is the indication that model 'Rain Rain A3000' could house a whopping 6 GB of RAM, as shown in the following Geekbench screenshot
It should be noted that both the AnTuTu and GFXBench have the 'Rain A3000' instead running on 4 gigs of RAM, which could indicate that 'Rain Rain A3000' is a different, potentially stronger version. With quite a few bits of scattered information currently doing the rounds, though, we're keeping a very open mind with regards to what's in store.
These apparent OnePlus 3 variants could bundle 64 GB of internal memory along with NFC. Each may include a front 8-megapixel shooter for selfies, and a 16-megapixel snapper to the rear complete with 4K video capture. The specs also round up the usual connectivity suspects, including NFC, Bluetooth and GPS.
(right) suggest the Rain A3000 may include a 5-inch panel. If true, it's possible that this device will be a successor to the OnePlus X, rather than being the enigmatic OnePlus 3.
OnePlus has risen to prominence and forged a cult following in the crowded smartphone business, though its announcements and launches haven't always gone too swimmingly. The invitation system has proved arduous and frustrating at times for fans, and despite a fair amount of hype, the OnePlus 2 didn't exactly live up to its quizzical 'Flagship Killer' billing.
It seems that the company is taking its time to ensure that every meticulous detail is catered to this time around, and with these specs popping up all over the place, an official unveiling could be just around the corner. Speaking of which, Chinese site ifeng believes that the OnePlus 3 will be showcased next month on May 28, and could make retail by June 6th.

Let's hope they don't try and use the 'flagship killer' slogan again. The only area the OnePlus 2 was a truly a flagship killer, was pricing.

Well when you get about same hardware for almost half the price for me its a flagship killer. Problem with today market is ppl buy for brand recognition and marketing instead of quality..

And costumer service... I had a OPO that broke, sent it in for repair 4 weeks ago, and I haven't heard from them since... And that's not even mentioning the 6 weeks it took before I even got to send the device. I am done with that bulls**t company. All the horror stories you can read online are true... The best one is from fortheloveoftech.com.

I guess you never bought a htc or Samsung then. If you have a problem with a htc you call them they send you a prepaid stamp and you get you device back within 10days. If it happens 3 times they give you a brand new device. Have you seen the build quality of the latest Samsung phones? Do you know any other brand that matches this quality? No This is why you pay the premium and avoid Chinese companies.

But the price one plus is charging, is way lower than Samsung and HTC. So I cannot expect same level of customer service from them... If One Plus is going to put 12mp imx377+OIS with same quality of Nexus 6p then I will go for it... I want 5.5inch FHD display with extremely small bezel, sd820, 4 or 6GB ram, 3500mah battery and no invite system for purchase...

Amen. They have to understand by now, that the invite system actually kept a crap load of people from buying it. Good phones. Worst marketing & sales team, ever.

It better include NFC this time around or else it's a non-starter for me.

If you want NFC and want to use it for mobile payments, get a Samsung that has Samsung Pay. There have been many instances where I get, "you can't use that here" and 5 seconds later it goes through and I leave with them scratching their head, wondering what wizardry I just pulled off. It's quite entertaining.

I mean mobile payment isn't the only use for NFC and I'd say the usefulness of Samsung pay all depends on where you live, it's not even out yet in all of Europe despite promises of it coming with the S6 and even when it does come out it seems my bank won't support it. Samsung pay is great for the people who can use it.

What's all this sudden craze with 6 GB ram for smartphones? Have we used 4 GB ram to its potential already?
