OnePlus has just unveiled their flagship handset for 2016: the OnePlus 3. Thankfully, unlike the last two years, the company did not unnecessarily hype the phone before its release and has let the product do the talking. The OnePlus 3 does seem like an impressive handset on paper, with its anodised aluminium body giving it a very premium look and feel.
The OnePlus 3 has leaked plenty of times over the last one month and the full specifications of the handset are also widely known at this point. It is only the pricing of the handset that has remained unknown so far. With less than 24 hours to go for its official unveiling, the final price of the OnePlus 3 for India has leaked through an ad in a daily newspaper no less.
Just as OnePlus 3 launch date was confirmed as June 14th, there is now more news about the device flooding into the techno-sphere, with industry insider Mocha RQ, stating that the company has been stocking almost 1 million units to prepare for it’s launch. This does make sense since the device is reportedly going to be available without the need for invites.
OnePlus today announced that it will be unveiling the OnePlus 3 on June 14, with the handset going on sale on the very day. For the first couple of hours, the company’s upcoming handset will be available exclusively in the Loop, the VR platform on which the OnePlus 3 will be unveiled. It will be the first time that a company will be using VR to offering a unique shopping experience.
At this point, there is little left to be known about the OnePlus 3. The full specs of the handset has already leaked, and so has its press render revealing its beautiful design. OnePlus has also already announced that it will once again be holding a VR launch event for the OnePlus 3, and going a step further, it will also be selling the phone in VR this time around.
We have already seen the OnePlus 3 leak in some blurry cam photos and in a press render that revealed its gorgeous design. Oddly enough though, aside from rumors, the final specs of the handset have not yet been verified by a trusted source – until today, that is. @evleaks has just posted a screenshot of the OnePlus 3 running a preview build of Android N and confirmed the final specifications of the handset to go with it.
