As per the advertisement, the OnePlus 3 variant with 6GB RAM will retail for Rs. 27,999 in India and it will be an Amazon exclusive. The image published in Advertisement proves that the leaked design and speculated specifications were absolutely true.
As far as specifications go, the OnePlus 3 is powered by Snapdragon 820 coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB on-board storage. Like its predecessor, it also comes with a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home screen. According to company claims, it is super-fast and can unlock the phone in just 0.2 seconds. The OnePlus 3 features a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED display with 1080p running resolution. Oneplus has never been a fan of microSD cards, so if you don’t find microSD card support in OnePlus, don’t be surprised.
In the advertisement, OnePlus 3 cameras were marked as 8-megapixel primary and 16-megapxiel secondary camera which appears to be a typographical error. We expect it to bear a 16-megapixel primary camera and 8-megapixel front camera. The size of the battery still remains in the dark but it will support OnePlus proprietary Dash Charge technology for fast charging.
The one also comes with several introductory offers including a yearlong subscription of Saavn Pro, idea’s 12-month double data offer, One-year damage protection from OnePlus Care and Amazon e-book credit worth Rs. 500. At today’s VR launch, OnePlus might also introduced a few other OnePlus 3 variants, including the one with 4GB RAM.
OnePlus 3 is likely to spark a new war of high-end specification and competitive pricing among Chinese smartphone manufacturers. It will lock horns with the likes of LeEco Le Max2 and Xiaomi Mi 5 which have almost a similar specification. OnePlus’ last flagship device received mixed bag reviews and didn’t set the stage on fire like OnePlus One. We have to wait for few more hours to witness how the OnePlus 3 complete story unfolds and to know if it will be able to replicate OnePlus One success story in India.
