OnePlus has announced that it will be making the OnePlus 3 official on June 14, breaking the biggest mystery surrounding the upcoming “flagship killer”. Moreover, the company is doing away with the invite system. The OnePlus 3 will be available for purchase like any other smartphone right from launch day. First sale will begin in China on June 16th, followed by the rest of the world sometime later.
The OnePlus 3 has been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors for quite some time now. We’ve seen its unibody metallic design, and in terms of specs, the device is expected to feature a Full HD display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM (a 6GB RAM variant is also said to in the works), a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, 64GB of internal storage, and a 3,00 mAh battery.
The announcement will take place in virtual reality, similar to the OnePlus 2, and VR users will also be able to buy the handset about an hour before everyone else. The price of the OnePlus 3 is unknown; given how the invite system is going away, it might be possible OnePlus will also do away with its aggressive pricing. Well, unless the company is planning on making such major changes one thing at a time. All will be made clear on June 14.
