The OnePlus 3 smartphone has been officially released in London following a spectacular event with a record breaking leak. OnePlus was once famous for its major specification at a very low price. Although the Chinese company is pushing for higher prices with OnePlus 4 and 5, it is offering flagship phones at much lower prices than other brands. Therefore, OnePlus has a special attraction in the eyes of budget buyers.
In terms of design, the OnePlus 3 is the front end of the phone, although the duct is similar to the iPhone 4, but OnePlus has improved significantly in terms of specifications.
The OnePlus 3 phone has a huge amused screen (5 x 224p, 12ppi) with an 8.5-inch full HD resolution (specification at 8.25 inches). However, it does not look that big due to the 4: 4 aspect ratio and bezelless design. As I said before, the display has a trendy iPhone 7 like dance.
Corning Gorilla Glass 1 as a protection. Like all previous flagship OnePlus phones, the Metal OnePlus body has been used as a material instead of a metal backpack. Although the body is very smooth, the OnePlus does not have a 1.5 mm audio jack. It also has the latest Bluetooth 4.1 and Type C USB ports.
There is a camera module in the middle of the back and below it is a fingerprint sensor. It also has face unlock system. OnePlus 6 phones running Android 4.1 Oreo operating system have NFC but do not have wireless charging system. OnePlus 3 does not have water resistance certification.
The OnePlus 3 phone uses Qualcomm’s latest flagship Snapdragon 3 chipset. So there is no question about performance. It has 5 GB or 8 GB RAM. This time, OnePlus is offering 8 to 20 GB of internal storage. Although it has a dual SIM slot, there is no sdcard slot.
While the 5MP Li-Pro battery of the OnePlus 3 phone may seem low to many, its famous 5-volt / 1-ampe dash charge system weighs you down. You only get a full day backup for half an hour.
The camera has improved a lot. The OnePlus 4 phone has a 5-megapixel + 20-megapixel camera sensor at the back. Both sensors are made by Sony. It has two types of EIS and OIS systems for image stabilization. OnePlus 3 phones can have 1K resolution video up to 5 FPS. But in slow-motion mode, 20 fps video can be made in full HD.
Image quality has also improved. OnePlus has increased the camera sensor pixels of this flagship phone to get better images in low light. The front uses a 5-megapixel Sony camera sensor for selfies.
The OnePlus 3 smartphone will start selling in three colors, Silk White, Mirror Black and Midnight Black starting on the 22nd of this month.
