The flagship killer is back with its 4th title, the OnePlus 3. There has been major updates to the new OnePlus 3 handset, the whole design language has changed and some very impressive hardware and software changes have taken their place. On the pleasant side, the OnePlus 3 now sells directly off the company’s shelves and there’s no annoying invite system any more. It’s available on the OnePlus website, and anyone can buy OnePlus 3 for $399.
Apparently, the 6 GB RAM makes the biggest wow factor for OnePlus 3 this year. People had expected bigger from OnePlus, but a 6GB RAM module has surpassed all expectations. The body is now full metallic jacketed, along with a camera bump in the rear which hadn’t ever been seen on an OnePlus handset before. The fingerprint sensor is much faster, in fact it could well compete with the fastest fingerprint sensors in the market right now – iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S7 generations. NFC makes a return on the 4th title of OnePlus, now users can experience Android Pay and other connectivity features on their OnePlus handset like they could on the first OnePlus handset.
The display is 5.5 inches with 1080×1920 pixels resolution. OnePlus calls the display an ‘Optic AMOLED’ panel, which appears to be a regular Samsung AMOLED display with manufacturer-specified modifications. The camera is 16 megapixels with f/2.0 aperture, the front shooter is 8 MP with similar aperture. Low-light photographing capabilities have been improved on this handset.
The reversible USB-C connector stays, with fast charging what OnePlus calls the ‘Dash Charge’.
