Updated: It looks certain that this is the OnePlus 3


Update: Photos of the OnePlus 3 have now leaked from a different source and it shows off the design of the new phone.

That rumored metal design is here and it looks much more premium than the OnePlus 2. It also matches a leaked render that was claimed to come from a OnePlus PR, which means this really might be the OnePlus 3.

  • Everything you need to know about the OnePlus 3

Original: The OnePlus 3 may be one of the most exciting phones on the horizon, but even though it’s not set to be officially announced until June 14 we know almost everything about it.

Leaks of the OnePlus 3’s specs have been coming in thick and fast, and the latest by Napidroid – using GFX benchmarking software – only adds to the pile.

Like previous leaks before it, this latest one claims the phone will come with a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 6GB of RAM.

The phone being benchmarked also comes with 53GB of storage – which will probably be 64GB before software. The rumors point to a 32GB version of the phone with 4GB of RAM, and a 64GB model with 6GB of RAM.

No surprises

Camera-wise, the benchmarks suggest a 15MP sensor on the back and a 7MP sensor on the front – those will likely be rounded up to 16MP and 8MP.

It will also come with Android 6.0.1 software, with the OxygenOS overlay sat on top.

All this is much the same as we’ve seen with previous OnePlus 3 leaks, which suggests we’re looking at the real deal.

The launch will be happening in virtual reality, with a space station-themed location called The Loop playing host to the event.

You’ll be able to buy the phone during the press conference in a virtual reality store. OnePlus has now killed its invite-only scheme, so you’ll be able to buy it on day one – rumor has it OnePlus has over a million phones ready to ship.
