As it turns out, OnePlus 3 has cleared TENAA, which is the FCC-equivalent in China. Clearing telecommunication authority hurdle usually implies the release date is approaching. To top it off, the listing also gives away key specifications and features of the device.
According to TENAA listing, the OnePlus 3 will feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, complemented by a full HD screen resolution of 1,080 × 1,920 pixels. Under the hood, it will apparently come powered by a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 820) processor, clocked at 2.15 GHz. The hardware configurations will be backed by a solid 4GB of RAM.
When it comes to internal storage, the OnePlus 3 will come equipped with 64GB of native storage space. Similar to the predecessor OnePlus 2, the successor may not feature a microSD card slot to facilitate expansion.
OnePlus has apparently housed a 3,000 mAh battery cell to keep the lights on. Camera-wise, this handset will sport a 16-megapixel rear-facing shooter, in addition to a generous 8-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies.
Speaking of design, this handset will reportedly come with a full-metal chassis. TENAA says the OnePlus 3 measures 152.6 × 74.6 × 7.3 mm and it weighs 160 g. On the software front, it runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.
It is worth noting that OnePlus 2 made use of OxygenOS UI on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop. It could be the same case in OnePlus 3 as well.
The OnePlus 3 will be released in three colors namely light gray, black and gold. This handset is expected to be unveiled on June 14. Reports also suggest that OnePlus has finally put an end to the invitation-only purchase model.
Readers should note that OnePlus has cut the price of OnePlus 1, OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X permanently, ahead of OnePlus 3 release.
