The OnePlus 3 is expected to debut in June, but ahead of its official debut, we’ve gotten a few unofficial looks at the device.
The latest OnePlus 3 image leak comes to us courtesy of TENAA, a Chinese regulatory agency. TENAA has posted images of unannounced smartphones in the past, and that’s precisely what it’s done with the OnePlus 3.
The device shown by TENAA looks largely similar to the one that leaked out earlier this month. It’s got what appears to be a metal body, antenna bands at the top and bottom of its rear, and a rear camera that protrudes from its body. There are volume buttons as well as a mute switch on one side and a power/lock key on the other, and on the front is what appears to be a fingerprint reader.
In addition to sharing these images of the OnePlus 3, TENAA has included several of the phone’s specs in its filing. Those specs include a 5.5-inch 1920x1080 AMOLED display, 16-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front cameras, a quad-core processor (rumored to be a Snapdragon 820), 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 3000mAh battery. On the software side, the OnePlus 3 is said to include Android 6.0.1. The OP3’s model number is listed as A3000.
Most of those specs have been rumored before, but today’s TENAA leak adds to their credibility. While still unofficial, they line up with what you’d expect from a new Android flagship in 2016. OnePlus also appears to be adopting metal for its flagship, something that we’ve seen from several other flagship smartphones lately. What will be interesting is seeing if OnePlus can also price the OP3 as competitively as its past phones. With a debut expected for June, we may not have to wait long to find out.
