OnePlus 3 smiles for the camera once again
posted by Paul K. / May 13, 2016, 5:09 AM
Now, we get another photo session of the upcoming handset in all of its metal glory. That's right, it seems Sandstone Black will be gone for good, at least from the flagship's body. In fact, OnePlus seems to have given up on a lot of the design elements that made its previous flagships recognizable. Is this in response to the critique that the OnePlus 2 looked too similar to the OnePlus One? Or is it just in effort to keep up with market trends?
Leaked benchmarks hint that we may get two versions of the OnePlus 3 – one with 4 GB RAM and 32 GB of storage, and one with 6 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of Storage. The “base model” OnePlus 3 is rumored to don a $310 price-tag, while the “premium” version's pricing is still a complete mystery. Reports say that we should expect a mid-May unveiling, with a launch coming in June. Well, it's almost time, then!

It actually looks decent, small side bezels. Nice metallic back, and a homebutton which actually looks better than Samsung.

people actually liked these rectangular home button? i can't never see how it fits, it's just out of place, and ruins the overall design of the phone, looks like a cheap chinese phone trying-hard to mimic iPhone, it's like "because they can't use circular one they use rectangular instead". better to use Google's language, on-screen buttons or capacitive ones.

No dual flash? I wouldn't say that this is the real thing.

Was really hoping they went back towards the OPO design language, rather then steering away from it. I personally prefer the rounded top/bottom look. Just more aesthetically pleasing, along with much more ergonomic in terms of "landscape" gaming.

So Oneplus lost their way. They were one of the two (the other being Huawei) Chinese phone OEMs that had their distinct design language going on. Now they decided to copy just like the millions of cheap Chinese phone OEMs out there. Good job guys..

Yup the designs gone all mainstream but i dont mind it. One plus makes hella good phones and i wouldnt mind this over similar looking phones like the mi5 and the galaxy S7. Ofcourse i havmt used it and this is based on my past experience with the op1 and op2. If this turns out not to be 'one plus 3' its gonna be interesting to know whovh phone it actually is.
