Much awaited OnePlus 3 launched officially for Rs. 27,999


The suspense over the much anticipated OnePlus 3 is finally over with launch of the device in a glittering event at Shenzhen Universiade and a Virtual Reality setting using Loop VR headset. Priced at Rs. 27,999, the device is said to go on sale from tomorrow (12.30 am, June 15) in India. And finally, for once, you don’t have to fret over the one plus invitation system as this device is invitation-free.

Playing spoilt-sport just hours before the event, Amazon India (of course, in a rather glaring glitch on the part of the company which has since removed the listing from its website) released the full specifications on their website. The anodized aluminum gives the device a rather premium look and the device is available in graphite and soft gold colour options.

The OnePlus 3 comes with a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080p and a layer of Gorilla Glass 4 technology on top. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset with a mammoth 6GB of RAM. However, you will have to live with 64GB of internal space without any expandable storage. It runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with a new variant of Oxygen OS on top of it.
On the camera front, there is a 16-megapixel rear camera comprising of the Sony IMX298 sensor with phase detection Autofocus, an LED flash, and 4K video recording. On the front is an 8-megapixel camera housing a Sony IMX179 sensor that can record videos at 1080p videos easily. It also supports electronic image stabilization.

The device also comes with a fingerprint scanner, NFC (unlike its predecessors!), LTE Cat.6, Dual-SIM connectivity, and a 3,000mAh battery with support for Dash Charge, which is a proprietary charging technology. Unlike the rumors, OnePlus is selling the 6GB RAM with 64GB storage option in India.
