Many new images of the OnePlus 3 can be found online. On the front, the smartphone will be very similar to its predecessor, the OnePlus 2. The rounded hardware home button and fingerprint scanner remains, while the shape has changed a little. Besides some small changes, like the selfie camera which has moved to the left side of the speaker, the new model isn’t that different. On the back, the OnePlus 3 has changed a lot with an all-metal body, a larger camera lens and some placement changes.

Just like the company’s older models, the OnePlus 3 will be powered by top-notch internals. The smartphone will have a Snapdragon 820 processor, an Adreno 530 GPU and 32GB of internal storage with 4GB of RAM in the cheaper version and 64GB of internal storage with 6GB of RAM in the more expensive one. The phone will have a 5″ Full HD IPS LCD display. The main camera resolution will be 16 MP an it will feature OIS, laser auto-focus and 4K video. The selfie camera will be an 8 MP shooter capable of 1080p video recording. Also, the device will most probably finally have NFC. As for the software, the phone will be running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with Oxygen OS on top of it.

The OnePlus 3 is rumoured to have VOOC Charging which is 5 times faster than the conventional technology and will charge the device’s 3000mAh battery from 0% to 100% in just 15 minutes. Photos of the new phone also show a USB Type C connector.

In terms of price, the OnePlus 3 will retain the very competitive price point with the cheaper version costing around $310 and the more expensive one around $400.
