After months of speculation and a ton of leaked images, the One Plus 3 has (finally) officially be launched. Through the years, we have seen One Plus come up with really good devices that have been commonly known as “flagship killers” that have all the juice to stand toe to toe with some of the biggest names in the market. As far as hardware is concerned, the One Plus 3 follows in the same footsteps as its two predecessors by offering some pretty powerful specs at an extremely reasonable price.
The device sports a 5.5” Optic AMOLED 1080p Gorilla Glass 4 display with 401 ppi, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, Adreno 530 GPU, 6GB LPDDR4 RAM, a 16MP Sony IMX298 sensor rear camera, an 8MP front shooter, 64GB of on board storage (with no support for an external card slot), 3000mAh battery, a finger print scanner, USB Type-C and Android 6.0 Marshmallow running on the company’s own OxygenOS.
Another noteworthy feature which the company announced was “Dash Charge” that promises to charge your phone from 0-60% in just under 30 minutes that aims at lasting a good 6-7 hours on normal usage. Unlike in the past, when one had to get an invite in order to purchase the devices, the company has decided not to go with that tradition anymore meaning you can easily place your order for the One Plus 3 today from their website. The One Plus 3 is available in two colors Graphite Grey and Soft Gold and is being retailed at $399
