Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus made a spot for itself in the Indian market with the help of the OnePlus One. Launched as the Flagship Killer, the phone found a lot of buyers in the sub 20,000 rupee segment it was pushed in. While the successor OnePlus 2 didn’t take the market by storm OnePlus it seems is working on the follow-up model already.
As reported by GizmoChina a recent benchmark result on popular tool Antutu has revealed quite a lot of details about the phone. The OnePlus 3 is said to sport a Snapdragon 820 processor along with 4GB of RAM. OnePlus is known to plonk in the latest processor in their smartphones so as to take on flagships that launch during the same time. This isn’t the first time we are looking at such processor and RAM combination as most of the 2016 flagships run the same specifications.
The LG G5 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 are the flagships devices from mainstream manufacturers to sport the 820 chipset. While the G5 sports the chip globally, the Galaxy S7 in some countries uses an Exynos chipset made by Samsung. The Snapdragon 820 is a Quad Core chipset which on paper may seem like a downgrade compared to the Snapdragon 810 in the Nexus 6P. Qualcomm has worked on the chipset along with Samsung and the cores on the 820 are called Kryo Cores which actually outperforms all existing Android smartphones.
As per Antutu, the OnePlus 3 seems to be sporting a 1920×1080 pixel resolution with unknown screen size. While phones are now moving to a Quad HD resolution setup it is surprising to see OnePlus still sticking to this resolution. OnePlus isn’t the only manufacturer though, Xiaomi is doing the same thing with the Mi 5 which also has a Snapdragon 820 Processor.
The benchmark also hints at the camera setup of the OnePlus 3, a 16-megapixel camera at the back bundled with an 8-megapixel camera on the front. The benchmark also points to a 32GB variant which was never the case for a OnePlus phone and it looks like the base variant is now 32GB instead of 16GB that is currently available. The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and we think it might be running the Hydrogen OS.
