The OnePlus 3 is set to launch in the second quarter of 2016, but we may already know what to expect from the company’s next flagship phone. A leaked AnTuTu benchmark reveals the specs for what’s shaping up to be a powerhouse of a device.
According to the leaked screenshot, it looks like the internal hardware of the device is going to be quite competitive. The smartphone allegedly packs a Snapdragon 820 chip, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter and runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow – Google’s latest version of Android.
Earlier this year, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei had promised that the upcoming flagship device will have a fresher and more promising design. He also revealed that the OnePlus 3 would arrive near the end of Q2 2016. According to GizmoChina, the device could actually be unveiled at an event on April 7, though in that case it probably won’t ship for at least another month afterwards.
Moreover, the phone will be pitted against the Xiaomi Mi5, which is also expected to release sometime next month.
Here is a configuration overview for the device, based on the data we currently have in hand.
It supports a 5.15 inches wide display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (~428 ppi pixel density). It is powered by a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 processor along with 4GB of RAM in the pro edition and 3GB of RAM in other editions. The Pro edition comes with 128GB internal memory, whereas the other versions come in two variants of 32 and 64GB of internal memory. In the camera department, the device sports a 16 MP rear-facing and a 4MP front-facing camera. Moreover, a 3,000mAh battery will most likely keep the juice running.
