The wait is over now. OnePlus 3 was officially announced late yesterday night and its sale will start all over the world today. In India, the phone is available in India exclusively through Amazon.in. Also, there is no flash sale, so anyone can purchase the phone without needing any invite or having to wait for the flash sale.
Note that only one model has been launched all over the world. The current model, which has 6 GB LPDDR4 RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, is available at Rs 27,999. Only the graphite colour model is available right now.
The OnePlus 3 has a 5.5 inch Optic AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that has full HD resolution. Just below the screen lies a home button which also acts as a fingerprint sensor. It has Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system based Oxygen OS. The OnePlus 3 has the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad core processor, Adreno 530 GPU and huge 6 GB RAM.
There is a 3000 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery which has state-of-the-art Dash Charge technology that claims to replenish over 60 per cent of the battery within 30 minutes. OnePlus 3 boasts a16 megapixel rear camera with f2.0 aperture, 1.12 µm Pixels, phase detection auto focus feature and Optical Image Stabilisation. An 8 megapixel camera is there in its front for selfies.
The all-metal OnePlus 3 is just 7.3 mm thin and comes with an alert slider key as well. Besides, it has dual SIM, GPS, WiFi, WiFi Hotspot, Bluetooth, Hall sensor, Accelerometor, Gyroscope, Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, and eCompass.
Earlier, six versions of OnePlus 3 were expected of which three were with 4 GB RAM and three others with 6 GB RAM are speculated. However, it seems there would be only this version that people can have.
To choose between these two we surely have to nit-pick.
The regular model of OnePlus X comes in Onyx colour and is priced at Rs 16,999 while the limited edition Ceramic colour variant is priced at Rs 22,999.
