OnePlus is all set to reveal the OnePlus 3 most probably next month, however, like always we’re already getting leaks and reports about regarding the upcoming flagship. Not a long ago, Evan Blass posted a render that pointed at a metal chassis and a fingerprint scanner. Although, today he leaked some basic hardware details on his Twitter profile. Other than the usual price benefit, we really wish OnePlus adds a unique ability to impress the followers they mostly disappointed with the OnePlus 2.

According to the tweet, OnePlus 3 will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 and 64GB internal storage. While RAM details are unknown as of now, it will obviously sport at least 4GB. Additionally, there’s a 16MP rear camera. Thankfully, OnePlus has realized the growth of mobile payment solutions like Android Pay and will include NFC in their upcoming flagship. Evan also attached a screenshot revealing the phone running Android N Preview Build which is quite astonishing to see. It’s equally possible OnePlus 2 will be getting Android N experience very soon. Moreover, the phone is expected to flaunt a 5.5-inches Full HD front AMOLED panel and 3000mAh battery underneath. Carl Pei, Co-Founder – OnePlus, recently tweeted about the return of invite system with OnePlus 3 which could disappoint some potential customers looking for an upgrade.
Another aspect that has been already established is the fact that viewers will be able to watch the launch event in Virtual Reality. OnePlus itself is selling a VR handset for free in the US and Europe, although in India, it will cost you Re 1 with additional shipping charges on Amazon. Sales are declared to happen on June 3rd and 7th in India. OnePlus is definitely one of those companies who always manage to create the necessary hype before their events but this time, they really need to get the OnePlus 3 right as they aren’t the only “flagship-killer” in the market anymore.
