The Chinese company has presented on Tuesday its new “smartphone” which is now available at a price of £320. It has a 5.5-inch Amoled screen, 6GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with four cores at 2.2 GHz.


OnePlus always arouses great expectations. And they have yet again achieved it. It couldn’t be less… A new smartphone was about to leave the oven: the OnePlus 3. And if anything if perfectly pictures how China is impressive for its powerful ability to manufacture terminals, with their own high-end performance at a low price in comparison to Apple, Samsung or HTC.

With the OnePlus 3 they have not been disappointing. “It is a device built by technology enthusiasts for technology enthusiasts,” Carl assured Pei, co-founder of the company, in the corporate blog.

To start OnePlus 3 reinvents the rapid charge system Charge Dash, a technology that ensures a full day of battery with only the need of charging for only half an hour. They say it is faster, safer and efficient, since the terminal does not over heat.

The smartphone has a Optic Amoled 5.5-inch screen, that has been equipped with 6GB of RAM, something impressive as it’s surpassing the Samsung Galaxy S7 and iPhone 6S. And mounts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with four cores at 2.2 Ghz.

It operates on the latest version of OxygenOS, a fast, clean and lightweight operating system based on Android Marshmallow. “It integrates several functions that give you more control to customise the experience with your smartphone as gesture recognition with the screen off and customisable buttons,” says the company.

On the other hand, OnePlus were terminals with good technical characteristics but unattractive design. This time, the company has decided to improve the aesthetics and quality of its device which means the metal body of a OnePlus 3 is carved from a single block of aluminium of the highest quality. The result? An ultra-thin and robust safe design.

The camera is another great achievement. With 16 Megapixels, it has an ultra-fast shutter, a fast auto-focus and clean software. In addition, the company has provided the OnePlus 3 with technology that comes with noise reduction, ensuring that every shot is sharp and defined, while two advanced stabilisation methods prevent vibration and unwanted movements.

The OnePlus 3 is now available at a price of £320. The purchase also can be done in virtual reality mode. In fact, fans were able to follow the presentation of the terminal on Google Cardboard and purchase directly.
