OnePlus 3: all the official images

OnePlus 3: all the official images
The fine folks from OnePlus jumped on the metal housing bandwagon, and just announced the OnePlus 3 clad in a nice aluminum housing that is all the rage these days. Most of the respondents in our recent poll said that they still consider metal to be a premium material for a smartphone, so no harm, no foul.

The OnePlus 3 has a few antenna strips on the back, resembling very much HTC's or Huawei's metal-clad phones, but, hey, Apple uses such plastic bands, too, and nobody accuses it in lack of premium feel. Is it a unibody design? Well, you be the judge, as according to the OnePlus blurb: "Rather than molding and connecting several pieces, we carve each body out of a single slab of this robust metal for a seamless, resilient build."

The handset is also pretty thin, at just 7.3mm, but, unfortunately, it's housing a relatively mundane sealed 3000 mAh battery, which, coupled with a Snapdragon 820 chipset, is unlikely to produce wonders in terms of longevity. The phone also has a toothed mute switch above the volume rocker, which is a nice touch, and will be available in gold and gray, so take a gander at all the official pics below.
