OnePlus 3 leaked before tomorrow's unveiling

The OnePlus 3 is the upcoming new flagship by up-and-growing company OnePlus, known for making phones that offer great value for the money and for being sold in a frustrating invitation-based system.

The OnePlus 3 is expected to break one of these two rules: it is said to launch with none of the invitation shenanigans that consumers had to deal with for previous OnePlus phones, but luckily, it's still expected to be quite the deal.

The phone will be officially unveiled tomorrow in a big event (stay tuned, as we'll cover it live on PhoneArena!), but already today, two images are making the rounds revealing the beautiful looks of the upcoming phone. Right out the wilderness of Weibo, China's Twitter-like service, we see a OnePlus 3 featuring what appears like a metal build with antenna lines a la HTC and iPhone, as well as a fingerprint scanner up front and a nice-looking screen with tapered side edges.

The OnePlus 3 specs are rumored to be the following:

  • Android 6.0
  • 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920-pixel resolution
  • Snapdragon 820
  • 4GB or 6GB of RAM
  • 32GB / 64GB / 128GB storage versions
  • 16MP main camera, 8MP selfie shooter
  • 3,450mAh battery, USB-C for charging
Not bad for what is rumored to be a phone that could cost less than $400, is it?

So glad the 3000mah battery rumor turned out to be false.

only retina screen is considered as flagship :D

FHD resolution on a 5.5" screen is enough to say it's retina. When iPhone 4 come out it had a pixel density of 326 ppi, while OPO 3 it's supposed to have 401 ppi, so in my opinion OPO 3 is definetely a flagship killer at the price it will be sold!

Since the only thing different about this phone is 4 GB RAM. The now considered old phone I use has 23 MP camera and 4K screen and a physical camera key.

Agree, it's really depend on individual~ for me i just need my phone to have enough juice for my daily usage, i don't need fancy FHD or Superb Camera, Snapdragon 820, 5.5" and 3450mah for under $400 it's consider good enough for me

Really good specs, just waiting for reviews to point out any corner cutting they made this time around (wonder if it has Quick Charge) and a CyanogenMod ROM to become available...

Not been impressed with anything so don't want to spend the usual price premium So this is looking appealing this year.
