OnePlus 3 has already been reported to feature to come with 6GB of RAM, and from what we can tell from the leaked camera sample, the smartphone’s rear camera is going to be quite impressive.
According to My Drivers, OnePlus 3 will have a 16 megapixel rear camera and the leaked camera sample is able to separate the flower away from the background. If you take a look at the background, it has been taken out of focus by a huge margin, while the flower has been focused on extensively. This could mean that the camera of OnePlus 3 could have a fixed wide aperture. 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.
Seeing such crucial features missing from a phone hurts our soul, and while we know that companies remove this feature to retain the build integrity of the smartphone, it becomes more than just a nuisance in maintaining our storage by deleting and replacing older files. Slip in a microSD card and all of those troubles will be a thing of the past.
The camera happens to be one of the most crucial aspects of a smartphone, and if the image is any indication of evidence, it shows that OnePlus 3 could be rocking an impressive shooter.
