Possible OnePlus 3 spotted on AnTuTu Benchmark


Chinese company OnePlus has been pretty tight-lipped surrounding their third flagship device, which will more than likely be the OnePlus 3. We have heard minor hints here and there regarding build and other unlikely rumors swirling around, but nothing concrete. Today that may have changed with a possible AnTuTu Benchmark listing of the OnePlus 3.

OnePlus 3 AnTuTu Benchmark

The AnTuTu Benchmark spotting shares with us what the OnePlus 3 will consist of on the inside. Not surprisingly, the 3 will sport the latest and most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor that features the Adreno 530 GPU. OnePlus and Qualcomm made a big deal with their partnership as of late, so this will continue. Backing up the CPU and GPU will be 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32 GB of ROM. It seems as if OnePlus isn’t going for the all out “spec-war”, but are refining their product.

Another important feature to note is the fact that it will still ship with a FHD display, meaning no QHD. Some may argue that a phone in 2016 should have a QHD display, but others will claim it isn’t worth the strain on battery and performance, so we’ll leave that up to you.

While the processor will be updated to the latest hardware, so will the camera. On top of featuring an 8 megapixel front-facing camera, the OnePlus 3 will employ a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera. This was the other area OnePlus focused heavily on with the OnePlus 2, so it looks as if that will continue. The camera is a pivotal selling point of smartphones today, so it makes sense.+

An interesting thing to look at is the choice for the OnePlus 3 to only come with 32 GB of ROM. The most likely reason is that it will feature a microSD card slot and use Android Marshmallow’s adoptable storage. Just to refresh, adoptable storage is a feature added in Android 6.0 which allows a microSD card to act as internal storage. This isn’t confirmed, just purely my speculation.

Now that we have the first details of the OnePlus 3, what are your thoughts? Are you glad to see that OnePlus is pulling back on the “specs are everything” movement and moving towards refinement? Let us know!

    I personally have the 1+2, and my biggest gripe has nothing to do with the performance, so oneplus not pushing for an all-out performance war has no qualms with me.
    My two big issues are that even with a 3300 MH battery, most other phones that I’ve seen seem to outlast mine (among my friends phones, that is). On top of that, Oxygen OS is horrendously stable, and my phone crashes constantly. I think that if they go for the same, high-end-of-the-middle specs, include one or two really new, good features and HEAVILY polish the software the oneplus 3 could make the same “splash” among flagships as the oneplus 1 did.

    I have the 1+2 as well and the battery life is just decent, nothing spectacular at all! I have hopes that Marshmallow will make it a bit better. I still enjoy using my OnePlus 2 though and it’s still the best phone I’ve had so far, it’s just that the software sometimes can’t keep up.
