OnePlus is popular because of putting a very affordable price tag on its two previous smartphone models, and its upcoming OnePlus 3 model is not going to share any different traits than the rest of them.
According to GizmoChina, the price tag of OnePlus 3 has been rumored to carry a price tag of slightly more than $300, which to be accurate stands in $310, or 1,999 Yuan. This is quite hard to believe, because if we take a look at the price tag of OnePlus 2, its starting model was priced above the $310 mark, and this was just the starting model. OnePlus 3 has already been stated to come with two different variants, with the most expensive one will undoubtedly feature 6GB of RAM.
The smartphone might also feature a 16MP rear camera with a wide aperture because a leaked camera sample shows that the focused image was successfully able to get separated from the background, resulting in a narrow depth of field. Its predecessor, OnePlus 2 has a 13MP front camera with an f/2.0 aperture so if a camera upgrade were to be made on OnePlus 3, it might have its aperture increased to f/1.8.
Right now, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge’s rear cameras have the widest aperture in smartphones at the moment; an f/1.7 aperture. While an aperture of f/1.8 might not be equal to that of Samsung’s phones, it will do a darn fine job of keeping the focused subject away from the background. Additional hardware that we will most likely find in OnePlus 3 range from a Snapdragon 820.
Currently, there is no information if the Kryo processor present inside Snapdragon 820 will be running at top speeds or not, but looking at smartphones like Xiaomi Mi5, it is definitely possible that OnePlus 3 will have two models running varied processor clock speeds. The one featuring the best of the best hardware specifications will feature the processor running at its top speed, while the second model will be running at a much slower speed. While this will not make any real-world difference to the experience of the user, we are hoping this time that OnePlus 3 actually comes with an expandable storage slot.
