According to previous rumors, the base variant of the smartphone is likely to be priced at $301 (Rs 20,000 approximately).

The OnePlus 3 is being rumored to be launched in as many as six variants including 6GB RAM models as well. According to rumors, the OnePlus 3 will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants with 4GB or 6GB of RAM.
OnePlus 3 specifications and features: Summing up the rumors so far, the OnePlus 3 is likely to come with a 5.5-inch full HD display. It will run Snapdragon 820 processor with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM depending on the variant. It will be powered by a 3,000mAh battery featuring Dash Charge technology for fast charging. OnePlus has just teased some camera samples taken from the OnePlus 3 ahead of the launch. Rumors suggest it will come with 16-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front cameras.
One the software front, the smartphone will run Oxygen OS based on Android Marshmallow, and should be upgradable to Android N. Software has been a weak point for OnePlus, which has struggled ever since its partnership with Cyanogen ended. The OnePlus 2 was let down mostly because of the half-baked software. It remains to be seen whether OnePlus has bridged the gap with the OnePlus 3.
