OnePlus 3 mobile phone now available in the UK

OnePlus haven’t been around all that long but the Chinese smartphone company have been making the big mobile phone manufacturers a bit uncomfortable since they launched the OnePlus One in 2014.


It was a decent smartphone at a bargain price, they also introduced an invite system so without an invite you couldn’t buy one. This of course made them desirable as we all want what we can’t have!


Since the OnePlus One was released they have also released the OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus X. The next phone is going to be called the OnePlus 3 and it will be available to buy in China on the 16th June and not long after that it will be available worldwide.


There are all sorts of rumours online about the new phone and below are some we have collected.


As the previous models were very similar in size many experts are expecting the same size and shape again. We would agree with that if it wasn’t for a big wig at One Plus hinting very strongly that a new design is coming with the new phone. He is quoted as saying that ‘he hopes the new OnePlus will have that special feeling that new users got when they first saw the OnePlus One’.


The other design chat is of a fingerprint sensor, a square protruding camera and a USB Type C.


Regarding the display - apart from one website that thinks there will be 3 different sizes available, most expect the OnePlus 3 to be a similar in size to the previous models. So it will probably be a 5.5-inch display, 1080 resolution in Full HD.


The cameras on the new mobile phone from OnePlus could be excellent. The talk is that the rear facing camera will be either 15 or 16 megapixel with the front facing camera either 7 or 8 megapixel. Not bad for a phone that might only cost £300. It could also have touch focus, face detection and autofocus.


How to buy the OnePlus 3 is still unknown with previous phones having the new invite only system. Our feeling is that the invite system did a great PR job but OnePlus will now want as many sales as possible without an invite only process getting in the way.
