Chinese Smartphone manufacturer OnePlus is said to be working on a refreshed variant of its flagship OnePlus 3. Over the past week, the rumor mill has been mulling about its existence but recent developments suggest that OnePlus 3S is already under works. As per the latest report, OnePlus received 3C certification for a new phone with model number A3010.

So how’s OnePlus 3S going to be different from the existing flagship? I am glad you asked. Well, don’t expect a major overhaul. As per initial reports, OnePlus will update the Snapdragon 820 to its latest refreshed version, the Snapdragon 821. Apart from this, rumor has it that the new OnePlus 3 variant could feature an IPS LCD panel instead of AMLOED screen. Apparently, the company is facing supply shortage which is causing delays in meeting demands. However, the company won’t be discontinuing OP3 anytime soon.
