OnePlus 3 launched at Rs 27,999 for 64GB storage

MUMBAI:OnePlus finally launched their latest “flagship killer” today, in a VR broadcast event online.

The OnePlus 3 has been eagerly anticipated, had multiple spec rumours and leaks, and is now finally available to the world.

Most of the specifications leaked were right on the money. The OnePlus 3 features an aluminium unibody, just 7.3mm thick. It packs a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080) AMOLED display at 401ppi with Corning Gorilla Glass 4. It has a 16MP f2.0 rear camera with OIS and 4K video capability, and a 8MP f/2.0 front cam. It also features an Alert Slider on the right spine, to quickly set your phone’s sound profile

The phone has a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with Adreno 530 GPU. It packs 6GB of DDR4 RAM and 64GB internal storage. The OnePlus 3 is powered by a 3000mAh battery with the company’s new Dash Charge technology. Not only does it use a custom charging cable, but OnePlus says the technology can get the phone to 60 percent (a full day’s battery) in 30 minutes.

The device runs the company’s own OxygenOS, out of the box. It has dual nano-SIM and 4G LTE support. As predicted, it also has a fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button.

The OnePlus 3 will be available in Graphite and Soft Gold variants for Rs 27,999. Even better, the company has officially done away with the invite system. All purchase of the phone can be done sans-invite, the minute it goes online in a few hours. And for those of you that participated in the Loop VR launch, you’ve probably already preregistered one.
