Thanks to fast charging feature, we no longer have to wait for hours to charge the smartphone’s battery to full. Qualcomm has Quick Charge, Oppo has VOOC whereas Samsung has a Fast Charge feature. While last year’s OnePlus 2 was powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset, which features Quick Charge 2.0, OnePlus didn’t include it. That may not be the case with the upcoming OnePlus 3 smartphone.
OnePlus recently applied for a trademark at USPTO called ‘Dash Charge,’ which could be a hint at the company’s own charging technology. While there is no concrete information about the same, the term Dash could be used to indicate speed, Ubergizmo reports. With most high-end flagship smartphones supporting fast charging feature, it would come as a surprise if OnePlus misses out on it, this time around.
Recently, the two variants of the OnePlus 3 bearing codename A3000 and A3003 were spotted on GFXBench with 4GB and 6GB of RAM, respectively. The standard variant is expected to come with 5-inch full HD (1080p) display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB or RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. The other is a slightly powerful variant and is likely to pack 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
With 16-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel selfie camera, 4G LTE support and NFC, the OnePlus 3 smartphone is likely to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. While other details are scarce at the moment, we will have to wait until OnePlus makes the smartphone official.
