OnePlus 3 has been making the headlines for the past couple of days, and we have seen some clear renders of the device. Up till now, the renders revealed that OnePlus could be taking some inspiration from other smartphone makers like HTC and Meizu. But now, alleged official renders of the device have been spotted online, revealing a slightly different design.
It is said that the images that were spotted on an online games website, but were soon replaced. So, it looks like the website posted those pictures by mistake. The device in the new images look much better than the previous renders, and this time around it looks the device has taken inspiration from Sony. The phone features a solid rectangular design, which looks a lot like Sony’s Xperia range.
The new renders reveal a glossy metallic frame and a dedicated button which should be for the camera, in addition to the power button and volume buttons. What we can see further is an oval physical home button, similar to the ones we have seen on Meizu’s smartphones. The bezels seem to be super thin as well, but that’s usually the case with all renders, so better wait for some real life images. Unfortunately, these new images do not reveal the back of the device, so we can’t confirm whether it’s similar to HTC’s back.
Also, according to the latest information, the phone will have a 128GB storage variant as well. It is said that the phone will be announced on May 28 and will be released early June. The 4GB RAM version of the phone will reportedly go on sale for 1999 yuan ($308), while the 6GB RAM version is said to retail for 2499 Yuan ($382).
As for the specs, the OnePlus 3 is expected to come with Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset, 5.5-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display, Android 6.0.1 and 3500mAh battery, possibly with OPPO’s low voltage fast charging technology. Read more about the phone’s specs from here.
