OnePlus 3 incoming, and it looks like this (probably)

This year has seen the arrival of some seriously formidable smartphones, so the pressure is on for the OnePlus 3 to be a real powerhouse. Is this our best look at the phone yet?

New images supposedly depicting the OnePlus 3 have been leaked online. The shots come courtesy of Twitter user ‘The Malignant’, who posted two images of the device from the front and bottom. We can’t verify the legitimacy of this leak, but the phone pictured does appear identical to other recent OnePlus 3 leaks.

From the front, there’s little movement from the OnePlus 2 – in fact, it doesn’t appear to have changed at all. The home button is the same shape, and still sits centred on the bottom part of the front-panel bezel.


But the bottom of the phone has been tweaked slightly. While the OnePlus 2 had two speaker grilles positioned either side of the USB-C port, the supposed OnePlus 3 has just one grille to the left of the socket. The right side, meanwhile, is now occupied by a 3.5mm headphone jack, which was previously found on top of the OnePlus 2.


The back of the phone isn’t pictured in this latest leak, but previous images have shown a design similar to that of the HTC One M9. The phone will apparently sport a T-shape antenna on the top of the back-panel, connecting downwards to a squared-off camera.

OnePlus is expected to announce its new phone in the coming weeks, although the company hasn’t confirmed any dates just yet. The OnePlus 3 has been rumoured to feature a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB storage, and a 16-megapixel camera. It’s also likely to run on Google’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS, skinned with OnePlus’ custom-built OxygenOS 3.0.
