OnePlus 3 launched with Snapdragon 820 chipset, 6GB RAM: Price, specifications, features

The new OnePlus 3 is official, and it is all set to go on sale in India tonight.


OnePlus is conducting a launch event in virtual reality, and has finally taken the wraps off its OnePlus 3 smartphone. The successor to the OnePlus 2 brings with it a new design, as well as upgrades on the specifications and features front. The OnePlus 3 is priced at Rs 27,999 in India, and is all set to go on sale later tonight exclusively via Amazon India. OnePlus 3 buyers will also be entitled to a year’s subscription of Saavn Pro, double data offer for Idea users, damage protection via OnePlus Care, and Rs 500 credit on the Amazon Kindle app.

With the OnePlus 3, the company is going beyond the Sandstone finished devices and has instead opted for an anodized aluminum unibody design. OnePlus has also managed to keep the new smartphone slim with dimensions of 152.7×74.7×7.35mm. To put this into perspective, the OnePlus 2 had dimensions of 151.8×74.9×9.9mm. The front is dominated by the 5.5-inch screen, with the fingerprint scanner embedded home button below it. On the sides are the power button, volume rocker, dual-SIM card tray and the Alert Slider.

OnePlus 3 specifications, features: Not surprisingly, the OnePlus 3 boasts top-of-the-line specifications and features. That said, where most flagship smartphones are opting for 2K resolution displays, the OnePlus 3 flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) Optic AMOLED display. The screen is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4.

On the photography front, the OnePlus 3 is equipped with a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, Phase Detection Auto-focus (PDAF), Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), and 4K video recording capabilities.

Up front, there is an 8-megapixel fixed focus selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and 1080p video recording capabilities. The selfie camera also includes a new Smile Capture feature, which as the name suggests, will click a photo as soon as it detects a smile on the subject’s face.

The OnePlus 3 also features a 3,000mAh battery the company claims is good enough to survive the day on a single charge. The battery also supports Dash Charge, which promises up to 60 percent charge in only 30 minutes.

Connectivity options include dual-SIM card (nano) slots, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and GPS. On the software front, it runs on OxygenOS based on Android Marshmallow 6.1. OnePlus says its latest OS is relatively bloatfree and focuses on speed and stability. It also includes the OnePlus Shelf feature, along with default Marshmallow features like Doze mode, app permissions and now on tap to name a few.

The OnePlus 3 then brings in a host of improvements over last year’s OnePlus 2. At Rs 27,999, the smartphone is being placed in a very competitive segment. It will face competition from the likes of the Xiaomi Mi 5 and the LeEco LeMax2 to name a few.
