The upcoming OnePlus 3 has been spotted on AnTuTu benchmarking site. It will be launched to replace the OnePlus 2 smartphone that was released in July 2015.

According to Gizmo China, the OnePlus 3 that was found listed on AnTuTu carries a model number of A3000. It has revealed that it will be housing a 5.5-inch screen that will continue to support full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels like its predecessor model.

It will be fueled by Snapdragon 820 chipset that will include a quad-core processor and Adreno 530 graphics. It will be supported by 4 GB of RAM. The inbuilt storage of the device will be 32 GB.

For shooting photos and videos, it will be fitted with a 16-megapixel camera on its rear side. On its front, it will be featuring an 8-megapixel camera. The smartphone will arrive pre-installed with OxygenOS based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS.

As of this writing, it seems that OnePlus 3 will not be sporting flagship specs. According to the rumor mill, the smartphone will be announced on April 7.

However, OnePlus 3 release date has been put off by the manufacturer as it has clarified to Android Authority that it will be holding an event on April 7 for the Chinese audience, but the company will not be announcing OnePlus 3. When the publication enquired on the purported specs of OnePlus 3, the company said “the only thing we can confirm is that it will be an awesome product.”

OnePlus 3 rumors also suggest that Microsoft is already building a Windows 10 Mobile ROM for the smartphone. Previously leaked photos of OnePlus 3 variants will be featuring different rear panels made from sandstone and ceramic. Other rumored features of OnePlus 3 include USB Type-C port, dual-LED flash for the rear camera and a battery of 3500 mAh capacity.
