OnePlus 3 Boasts Unibody Design, 6 GB of RAM
OnePlus today announced its third-generation flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 3. The 3 features a sleek, unibody design milled from a single block of aluminum and it measures 7.3mm thick. OnePlus selected a 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display with thin bezels and a dual-polarizing layer to help colors remain vivid under bright light. The phone has a 16-megapixel main camera with a variety of capture modes, such as Smart Capture, Auto HDR, and Dynamic De-noise, which OnePlus claims eliminates noise by merging several images. The camera also includes optical and electronic image stabilization, as well as RAW image capture. The 8-megapixel selfie camera features a Smile Capture function to help ease the process of snagging those self portraits. The OnePlus 3 is powered by a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor with 6 GB of RAM. OnePlus says the ceramic fingerprint sensor can identify prints in 0.2 seconds. The phone adopts OnePlus' Dash Charge technology, which can give the 3,000mAh battery a 60% charge in 30 minutes. The OnePlus 3 runs OxygenOS, which is based on Android 6 Marshmallow. OxygenOS includes off-screen gestures and the ability to customize the hardware and software buttons used to control the user interface. The phone will be sold unlocked with support for a wide number of LTE networks around the world. The OnePlus 3 is available online starting today for $399 — no invitation required.
