Hopefully, OnePlus will also invent a better name for its next smartphone.
While we are not still completely over OnePlus 3 smartphone, OnePlus has reportedly started working on its next flagship. And as per reports, the phone will be called as OnePlus 4 (were you guessing otherwise!). Meanwhile, people have started guessing about its specs as well and if those became a reality next year, then the next OnePlus phone will be an awesome one.
As per rumors, OnePlus 4 will come with 8GB of RAM. And it might as well considering 4 GB is quite common now while companies are 6 GB RAM has started featuring in some phones. A 23 megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8 megapixel front camera is expected in OnePlus 4 which is quite likely considering that OnePlus 3 has 16 MP rear camera and 8 MP front shooter.
However, it is hard to believe that the OnePlus 4 will come with an expandable storage slot of 256 GB capacity as we didn't get one in the current OnePlus flagship. Perhaps, OnePlus go Apple's way and bring a 256 GB internal storage variant of its next flagship. Meanwhile, reports claimed that the phone will have an Optic AMOLED display and a Snapdragon 830 processor. Note that Snapdragon 830 is yet to be released and it is expected to be much more powerful than the current Snapdragon 820. Moving forward, with Android Nougat just released, the OnePlus 4 will definitely have the latest Android software unless something dramatic happens.
The alleged OnePlus 4 is expected mid next year but some are assuming an early release at around $400 (approximately Rs 26,809). But dear readers, these are just speculations and the actual product might be way too different. And it won't be the last rumour either; many such speculations and leaks are likely to come with each passing day.
Just to recall, OnePlus 3 which is the 1st smartphone of India with 6 GB RAM was launched for Rs 27,999 in June this year in India. 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, huge 6 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage.
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 a 16 megapixel rear camera with f2.0 aperture, 1.12 Âµm 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.
