Given the company’s willingness to reveal precious inside information on the OnePlus 3 ahead of time, we must admit we were surprised to see so many conflicting tipster-based reports regarding screen size and resolution, battery capacity or RAM configurations.
But as we near D-day, pretty much all our lingering questions are answered, with the display almost certainly measuring 5.5 inches in diagonal and capping off at 1080p, the juicer settling for a OnePlus 2-downgrading 3,000 mAh count, and 4 gigs of memory working alongside a top-shelf Snapdragon 820 processor to ensure solid overall performance and smooth multitasking.
“Only” 4GB RAM? Only the one SKU, capable of storing 64GB data internally? No, as it turns out, with Tenaa back to offer its regulatory blessing to an even beefier A3000 model we first heard chatter about a while ago.
Now, it will be interesting to see if both the 4 and 6GB RAM OnePlus 3 variants indeed carry 64 gig ROMs, or perhaps China’s FCC equivalent made a mistake. The starting price could surge from the previously rumored $310 to at least $350 if 16 and 32GB storage options are eschewed, which might make a few of the OEM’s most cash-strapped fans a little unhappy.
Meanwhile, we still hold out hope for a killer tag of around $450, maybe even less, as far as the top-of-the-line OnePlus 3 is concerned. Exactly two weeks to go, everybody, and five days until peer review registration wraps up. Can you contain your excitement much longer?
