Champagne OnePlus X Available In North America Next Month






As most of you know, OnePlus has released two smartphones this year, the OnePlus 2 flagship, and their OnePlus X mid-ranger. Both of these devices have been available for purchase for quite some time now, and the OnePlus 2 can even be bought without an invite now. OnePlus still requires you to own an invite if you’d like to purchase the OnePlus X, on every day except Tuesday. Starting last week, OnePlus has allowed consumers to purchase the OnePlus X on Tuesdays without an invite, which certainly is an improvement.


That being said, this China-based company has introduced two OnePlus X variants at launch, the OnePlus X Onyx and OnePlus X Limited Edition Ceramic version. Well, a new variant of the device has been unveiled by OnePlus recently, the Champagne Edition. This handset looks the same as the previously mentioned variants, and it also sports the same set of specs, but it looks differently. It’s white with a champagne-colored frame which goes around the device, and the company said that only 2,500 units will be available. The Champagne Edition of OnePlus X became available in select regions (Europe & Hong Kong) yesterday, and OnePlus has released more info on when will it start selling this phone in the US. The company wasn’t exactly specific, but they did say that this handset will roll out to the US in January, so those of you who are looking to buy one, you’ll need to wait a bit longer in order to do it. The company, however, once again failed to mention when will the Ceramic variant of the device become available in the States, we’ll report back as soon as we get more info regarding that.


The OnePlus X features a 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. This smartphone is fueled by the Snapdragon 801 quad-core SoC along with an Adreno 330 GPU. The 13-megapixel shooter is available on the back of this phone, and an 8-megapixel snapper can be found up front. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed here with OxygenOS available on top of it. The phone ships with a 2,525mAh battery, it measures 140 x 69 x 6.9mm, and it weighs 138 / 160 grams (Onyx & Ceramic variants).

OnePlus may be readying a beefier OnePlus X with Snapdragon 810




It looks like OnePlus is getting ready to launch a beefier variant of the OnePlus X. A device with model number One E1000 has been certified by China's TENAA, giving us a look at the possible hardware on offer.


According to the certification, the phone will feature a 4.99-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 810 SoC clocked at 2GHz, 3GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, microSD slot, 13MP camera, 8MP front shooter, and LTE connectivity. Essentially, the device is identical to the OnePlus X, albeit with the Snapdragon 810.


However, a GFXBench leak from earlier this month suggested that the phone will feature a 4.6-inch FHD screen, 4GB of RAM, 12MP camera and 64GB internal memory. It will certainly be interesting to see a more powerful variant of the OnePlus X, but as of now there's no concrete information regarding the phone. We'll let you know if we hear more.

Why would anyone buy these over say a Nexus 6P or original Nexus 6?

OnePlus One’s Latest Cyanogen OS Update Promotes Microsoft’s Apps





OnePlus has been founded at the end of 2013, and the company has released three smartphones thus far. The OnePlus One was the company’s first handset, and was released back in 2014. This smartphone has managed to create a lot of hype for OnePlus, and was considered to be one of the best devices of 2014. Unlike the OnePlu 2 and OnePlus X which were announced last year, OnePlus One shipped with Cyanogen OS originally. At one point OnePlus and Cyanogen decided not to continue their partnership, and OnePlus developed their very own Android skin, Oxygen OS, which is extremely close to Google’s stock Android offering.


That being said, OnePlus One users could choose whether they want to stick with Cyanogen OS, or update to Oxygen OS. In case you opted to stick with Cyanogen OS, you probably know that Cyanogen OS 12.1.1 update started rolling out to this handset earlier this week. Now, we’ve already reported that Cortana is part of the mix here, but it seems like there’s more to it than we thought. The file opening dialog in Cyanogen OS 12.1.1 actually promotes Microsoft’s applications in a way, even if you don’t have them installed, which is very, very odd. So, for example, if you try to open a .doc file, the file opening dialog will offer you various app options (those that are compatible and can open that file), but the first option you’ll get will be Microsoft Word. Now, some of you might think uninstalling Cortana will solve this ‘problem’, but it does not, even if you deinstall Cortana, you’ll still be getting these suggestions.
This would be very odd even if you had Microsoft’s applications installed, but considering there are not even on the device, we can understand if some users find this annoying. OnePlus did not mention this will be happening when they announced the update is rolling out, which is kind of odd as well. We do hope there are no additional such surprises available here, but in case something pops up, we’ll make sure to let you know, as usual.

OnePlus Releases New Teaser, Is OnePlus 2 Mini On The Way?





As most of you know, OnePlus has introduced three smartphones thus far, and two of them were announced last year. This China-based company has unveiled their new flagship, OnePlus 2 first in 2015, and the OnePlus X followed later in the year. The OnePlus One, the company’s first flagship, was introduced back in 2014. That being said, many people were expecting the company to introduce the OnePlus 2 Mini before the end of 2015 (despite the fact OnePlus X arrived), but that didn’t happen despite a ton of leaks and rumors we’ve seen. Well, Xiaomi’s latest teaser might hint the OnePlus 2 Mini launch is coming, read on.
This new teaser appeared on OnePlus’ official Facebook page, as it did on other social media outlets. Looking at the image itself, you can see there are two smartphones on that image, and one is smaller than the other. Now, the teaser is quite cryptic, but this could be related to the OnePlus 2 Mini, even though some reports were suggesting OnePlus 2 Mini wasn’t going to happen considering the company introduced the OnePlus X, which is essentially OnePlus’ smaller handset. Keep in mind that this is only a guess on our part, we can’t confirm that OnePlus 2 Mini will launch at all, but if it is on the way, we’ll definitely see more similar teasers in the coming weeks. This teaser, as far as we know it, might even be related to OnePlus’ Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, only time will tell.
Now, thanks to an earlier listing on GFXBench, we can even talk about OnePlus 2 Mini’s alleged specifications. The listing on GFXBench reported that the device will ship with a 4.6-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The device is expected to be fueled by the Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 13-megapixel shooter is said to be available on the back of this smartphone. The 5-megapixel front-facing camera has also been mentioned, and the device won’t sport NFC according to GFXBench’s listing. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop was reported as OnePlus’ OS variant of choice, and the company will, of course, include their Oxygen OS on top of Google’s Android operating system. That is pretty much it, stay tuned for additional news.

OnePlus 3 will launch in late Q2 2016





OnePlus launched its second flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 2, back in July 2015, and it’s looking like we won’t have to wait an entire year to get our hands on the OnePlus 3. In an interview with CNET, OnePlus co-founder and CEO Carl Pei announced that the OnePlus 3 is slated to arrive at the end of the second quarter. This means we can expect the device to launch by June, which really isn’t too far away.

Mr. Pei also commented that the OnePlus 3 will have a “new design,” though he remained rather vague in his comments. No other details were given regarding the smartphone’s design, though the founder did say he hopes the OP3 will captivate users as much as the OnePlus One did back in 2014.

He went on to say that the United States market will be very important to the company this year, and that they’re planning on using more “traditional marketing” strategies to promote the upcoming handset. OnePlus currently doesn’t purchase any advertising on mainstream media, and instead relies on a strong social networking presence to spread the word. The device will still arrive to the U.S. as an unlocked phone sold directly by the company. Pei also says users can expect a better buying process, though he didn’t reveal if that would mean getting rid of the frustrating invite system or not.




We’ll definitely find out more in the coming weeks about OnePlus and the new OnePlus 3, so stay tuned for more details.

OnePlus Smartphones Spotted in House of Cards Season 4




Netflix has, undeniably, changed the way a lot of people watch TV online. Sure, it often gets panned for not having the latest series of some shows, and the rate at which shows and films exit each month can be a little annoying. However, before Netflix came along, the idea of “binge watching” an entire show came only to those willing to spend the money on a DVD/Blu-Ray boxset or those willing to sit through marathon re-run sessions. Netflix has also had some pretty stellar original shows such as Orange is The New Black, Arrested Development, House of Cards and more recently, Fuller House. The one show that gets everyone hyped up each Spring is House of Cards, and this year, it seems the Underwoods and friends have bought new smartphones; from China’s OnePlus, no less.


The original season of House of Cards saw huge product placement of Apple devices. In every office of Congress there was an iMac, and halfway through the season there was a whole desk littered with iPhones and iPads, for just two people working late at night. Still, Frank stuck with his beloved Government-issue BlackBerry in the first season, at least. Now though, in its fourth season, the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X have been spotted in a number of different scenes throughout the latest series. This is an interesting approach for the producers of the show, as the OnePlus brand and device design might just go unnoticed by many users, but it definitely sticks out a little bit if you know what you’re looking for. Besides, we’re not so sure that the US Government would be all that happy with Chinese devices being used like this, given not-too-distant history.
According to one report, it appears as though OnePlus themselves might have paid as much as $300,000 to have these devices featured in the latest raft of episodes. This wouldn’t be too surprising, as House of Cards is a big, big deal for not just Netflix, but the TV landscape overall. Around this time of year, everyone is talking about the new season, and having your device featured in such a popular series will no doubt do wonders for your brand.

Nice-Looking OnePlus 3 Concept Images Surface




OnePlus has managed to become a very respected company in a really short period of time. This China-based smartphone manufacturer has been founded back in December 2013, and in April 2014 they’ve released their first smartphone, the OnePlus One. That device has actually managed to surprise quite a few people, and was regarded to be one of the best smartphones of the year. Well, OnePlus has introduced two additional phones last year, the OnePlus 2 flagship, and the OnePlus X mid-ranger. That being said, this company is going to release their third-gen flagship in a couple of months, the company’s co-founder said that we can expect the device to arrive at the end of Q2 this year.


We haven’t exactly seen many leaks / rumors when it comes to the device, but according to the company’s co-founder, we can expect a significantly different design this time around. Speaking of which, a OnePlus 3 concept images surfaced recently, and you can check them out if you take a look in the gallery down below. Keep in mind this is not a leak of the actual device, but just a bunch of concept images for you to check out, though the final product might resemble this in the end, who knows. As you can see, the device pictured here does look quite different than all three OnePlus-branded devices, though the power / lock slider button is back here once again, and so is the Type-C USB port. This device features a metal frame, and has a rather large speaker grill on the top. According to rumors, the OnePlus 3 will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, 4GB of RAM and will sport a fingerprint scanner. The device is said to ship with the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core SoC, along with the Adreno 530 GPU for graphics. The 20-megapixel camera has also been mentioned, and you can expect the device to ship with Android Marshmallow with the company’s OxygenOS installed on top of Google’s OS.
That is pretty much it. You can expect to see a lot more rumors / leaks before this device actually gets launched by the company, so stay tuned for that, of course. We’ll make sure to let you know as soon as some additional info surfaces, as always.

OnePlus kicks off installment plans in the US






Been wanting to get an unlocked device but haven’t really had the cash to make the jump all at once? If you’re in that boat and you’ve been eyeballing the OnePlus 2, then you’re in luck! OnePlus has just announced that they are initiating installment plans that can let you rock a OnePlus 2 for as little as $22.60 per month.
The company claims they are adding this option because buying a phone in the US is unnecessarily complicated. Often times, there’s not a whole lot of transparency with major carriers in regard to how much of your monthly bill goes toward paying for your device. OnePlus doesn’t like the fact that carriers have historically masked the actual cost of phones with confusing terms and conditions, subsidies, and installments. They want to bring a simpler model to the table that lets folks pay for their device over time, plain and simple.
The installment plan that OnePlus has set up is eligible for any order from the company that exceeds $99. Right now, it’s only available in the US, but we can keep our fingers crossed for a European release. The installment plan is totally optional, and if you decide to pay the remaining cost of your phone at any point, you’re free to do so. The main benefit to paying installments through OnePlus rather than your carrier is, of course, that you’re free to hop carriers whenever you would like.
What are your thoughts regarding OnePlus’s new installment plans? Still prefer to buy your phone outright rather than be tied down with recurring payments? Let us know your take in the comments below!

Android Headliner: OnePlus Needs To Now Start Focusing On Updates




OnePlus has had quite the checkered past with the media. Their devices have been big attention-grabbers and more often than not, any OnePlus news is news which generates interest with the Android massive. However, they have also gone through a number of turbulent periods with the media due to their various antics. From publicity stunts that have gone wrong, to their notorious invite system which finally came to an end not too long ago. All of that aside though, there are some more fundamental issues with being a OnePlus device owner. Yes, OnePlus is becoming extremely capable of bringing high-quality devices to market and at affordable prices and this is always something which they deserve credit for. After all, it offers consumers a real way to pick up a decent spec and performing device, without having to pay top-tier prices likes what Samsung, LG and HTC command for their handsets. However, the hardware is only one side of being a device owner and while OnePlus do seem to be getting that side right, they also seem to be a long way off getting the other side right…the software.

For background, for the last two years I have essentially been a sole OnePlus device owner. As early as May 2014, started using the OnePlus One and continued using the One as a daily driver right up until about September/October time when it was put aside in favor of the OnePlus 2. Since then, although different devices have came across my path for testing, I have stuck with the OnePlus 2 as a go-to device. The reason being that it simply is a good device on the whole. That said, as we are now edging towards the middle of March and the fact that the OnePlus 2 is still running Lollipop (Android 5.1.1) is starting to become depressing. Within the last week OnePlus has rolled out a tiny OTA update, but in reality, they should have already rolled out the update to Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). Exactly this time last year, OnePlus One owners (like myself) were keenly waiting for Lollipop to drop. In fact, last year was a pretty good year as we were waiting for two versions of Lollipop to drop, one from Cyanogen (COS12) and one from OnePlus (OxygenOS). So the choice was there. However the wait went on for considerably too long and neither version of Lollipop dropped for the OnePlus One until the first week of April. Conveniently, both pretty much came through the same week. While April is a long time to wait for Lollipop, it was somewhat understandable as OnePlus were (at the time) a relatively new company and OxygenOS was a new operating system. So excusing its rather stock appearance, it was understandable that it took as long as it did with such a big and hefty update such as Lollipop.


Fast forward a year and suddenly things are getting a little less understandable. What is the hold up for this year? A year on and midway through March and once again, OnePlus owners are sitting (patiently) waiting for Marshmallow to drop. And while a number of device owners are in the same position, things are a little different with OnePlus and they cannot make use of the same excuses as they once did. Besides the fact that Oxygen is no longer new or Marshmallow is not as big of an update as Lollipop was, the OnePlus 2 is their flagship device. A flagship from a very small range of devices (three in total) and while it is a flagship, it is being made to wait as long as many other manufacturers second-tier (in updating terms) devices. A wait which is too long for any flagship device. To add, we are talking about OxygenOS here, not TouchWiz or Sense UI, or even Cyanogen OS. For anyone who has used a OnePlus device running OxygenOS, they will be more than aware of how light this OS really is. Although it is not stock, it is very light and most of the time it is often hard to find what additions OnePlus have included to the stock software. There are small tweaks here and there but when you put this up against other manufacturers software, there is no comparison, this is as lightweight as a skinned Android OS can get. So the skinning of the software cannot really be a justifiable reason for the delay in rolling out the update.
Of course with these updates there is a chain of command so to speak. Google releases the code and then manufacturers tweak it before carriers do the same for their variants. So in fairness to manufacturers, carriers always tag on additional time as well. Although, in the case of OnePlus, there are no carrier variants. This is a device sold directly from OnePlus with no carrier affiliation or intervention. So for every carrier-related device that you hear receiving Marshmallow in the news, this is a device which has had to go through an additional stage of testing and tweaking and is still receiving its update before the OnePlus 2. Not to mention, the carrier devices that you are hearing about, are usually one of many devices from a particular manufacturer and likely, heavily skinned. Again, the OnePlus 2 is the only current flagship device from OnePlus and is a very lightweight skinned device and one which bears no carrier intervention. So the carrier logic cannot really be a justifiable reason for the delay in rolling out the update either. Then again, OnePlus is a small company and this must be taken into consideration as well. But the point here is that they do not want to be a small company. In fact, much of the rhetoric of past has been that they can go toe to toe with the big companies and especially when it comes to flagship devices. Although, as time goes on and when taking into account the software and updating, OnePlus is starting to reveal where they are specifically lacking when going toe to toe with the bigger names. This is now starting to become a concern.

OnePlus has prided themselves on bringing good quality devices to the market and at affordable prices. And while they do continue to prove this point, the quality of their devices is becoming less of a selling point as it is now becoming expected that any device they release will be a good device. As a result, in terms of OnePlus maintaining appeal, hardware is quickly becoming the less important half. Not to mention, things have changed massively since OnePlus first came on the scene. Now, there are tons of smartphones available which all come touting great value. In fact, I also have a Nexus 5X here which I use as a secondary daily driver (work phone basically) and this is a smartphone which had been running Marshmallow since the day it arrived. And the truth is that in spite of its lesser RAM and storage, it is a device which in many respects is as (if not, more) capable as the OnePlus 2. I would find it hard to struggle to suggest the OnePlus 2 over the Nexus 5X as it is a good little device for the money. Not to mention, that as of right now and while the OnePlus 2 still sits on Lollipop, the Nexus 5X is already running the developer preview of Android N. Granted, N is not currently in a usable daily driver state, but it will be soon enough and presumably not that long after the OnePlus 2 sees its Marshmallow update. Not to mention, it can only be presumed that N will not reach the OnePlus 2 until early next year, likely April again, as that is starting to look like the OnePlus update cycle.
So here it is. OnePlus has just under a month to roll out Marshmallow to the OnePlus 2 or face being even slower at rolling it out, then they were with Lollipop. If that is the case, then there will be no obviously justifiable reason as to why it has taken this long. This is a close to stock device, one which is not carrier-affiliated and is the current flagship device for the company. Even if they do roll out Marshmallow by the end of this month (the next two to three weeks) which by the way, was when it was promised, then they will have only marginally improved on last year. Which is unfortunately a statement in itself. After the couple of years of OnePlus dominating the headlines, failing to improve their level of major updating could prove to be one of the aspects which stagnates the company’s appeal a little. Especially, if they start to become known for taking crazy long to update their devices to the latest version of Android. A company in their position needs to now begin to focus on the software side of things – both in terms of what it adds to their devices (useful features) as well as the rate of updating. If they do not take a more proactive approach to their software going forward, then they will miss out on a prime opportunity – as it will only become harder for them to provide updates as their catalog of devices continues to grow. More to the point, after two years of waiting for major update releases to come to OnePlus devices, the appeal to get the OnePlus 3 is fading. Simply because of the updating issue and that this lower spec Nexus 5X will likely be running a ‘final release‘ of Android N by about the same time.

OnePlus One Marshmallow Update “Should Be Very Soon”




Like a number of smartphone owners, OnePlus device owners are currently in the waiting wings when it comes to the latest version of Android, Marshmallow. Well, to be clear, OnePlus 2 owners are, as the Marshmallow version of OxygenOS, version 3.0, is already available as a ‘community build‘ for owners to download and check out. While this is a test version and not a final release of Marshmallow for the OnePlus 2, the assumption is that as long as the testing goes well and there are no major issues noted, there should not be any major delays to the rolling out of the update, which is likely to happen soon enough.
However, for the OnePlus X and the OnePlus One, things seem a little less clear. In particular, for the OnePlus One as this was a device which at the time of release came running on Cyanogen OS, in contrast to OxygenOS which comes running on both the OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus X. So technically speaking, the OnePlus One Marshmallow update is not quite in the hands of OnePlus. A sentiment that was voiced earlier today in a tweet sent out by Carl Pei.
The tweet seemed to be providing One owners with an update on the progress with Marshmallow for the OnePlus One and did make it clear that the arrival of the Android 6.0 update “should be very soon”. However, Pei was unable to provide any detailed timings on when the update was likely to arrive, due to its dependency “on other parties.” Which makes the assumption that Pei is referring to the Cyanogen flavor of Marshmallow, instead of the downloadable and flashable version of OxygenOS which was later released for the One. For those anxiously waiting for Marshmallow on their OnePlus One, the Pei tweet did confirm that the update is in the final stages of testing. Which although sometimes can be long, are often good enough indicators that the update is nearing its rolling out stage. Although, until any further announcements or official confirmations come through on this, it remains unclear how close to the rolling out stage the update currently is.

Cyanogen 13 OTA Now Available for OnePlus One




Back when OnePlus were a company that didn’t even have a tangible product for people to purchase, the Chinese upstart was busy dripfeeding the community itsy, bitsy pieces of news drop-by-drop. One of the more popular pieces of news the firm dropped back then was the fact that the OnePlus One would be powered by the then-new Cyanogen OS, a version of the open source custom ROM. Since then of course, we know that things went South between Cyanogen and OnePlus, but the original OnePlus One is still very much supported by Cyanogen and now Cyanogen 13 is available for the original phone that put the Chinese firm on the map. This brings the OnePlus One up to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the OTA files can be found online for download.


Many avid users will probably have updated their device by now, but for those that haven’t, the OTA files can be found for download directly from Cyanogen’s website. The new version of Cyanogen, Cyanogen 13, can only be flashed if users still have the stock recovery on their device, which means those that moved onto something like multiROM will be out of luck. There may well be customized version available that will flash through TWRP or even CWM available, but as always users go that route knowing that there are some risks involved. Kondik himself even posted on the OnePlus forums with some good news for those holding on to the venerable OnePlus One saying that “much of our focus was on eliminating technical debt and refactoring stuff so we can go faster when N drops.”


Those that are running OxygenOS on their OnePlus One won’t be able to flash this, as this update is solely the Cyanogen side of things. However, given that the Marshmallow update to OxygenOS is just around the corner for OnePlus 2 users, and OnePlus have some time before the OP3 will be released, an OxygenOS update running Android 6.0 for the original OnePlus shouldn’t be too far away. For now though, those interested in updating their OnePlus One to Marshmallow can do so by downloading the Cyanogen 13 OTA link from Cyanogen here.

OnePlus 3 looks ready to obliterate competition – 6GB of RAM, Snapdragon 820 and more













The OnePlus 3 is set to arrive within the next few months and, while we don’t have any official news on it yet, the device is already popping up all over the place online. A couple of recent benchmarks reveal that the new “flagship killer” could offer 6GB of RAM, NFC and plenty of other cutting edge hardware.
The OnePlus 3 was spotted on both Geekbench and GFXBench under the codename Rain A3000. The specs don’t line up perfectly, suggesting the company could offer multiple versions of the upcoming device.
According to Geekbench the OnePlus 3 will offer 5739 MB of RAM (likely rounded up to 6GB). It also packs a Snapdragon 820 chip and runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. GFXBench reveals a bit more information, promising a 5-inch 1080p display, NFC, a 15-megapixel rear camera, a 7-megapixel front-facing shooter and just 4GB of RAM.
It’s possible OnePlus could offer two distinct models of the new phone, one with 4GB of RAM and one with 6GB. It’s a popular strategy in China, allowing companies to market the pricier handset as a premium variant. It’s possible one (or both) of the benchmarks could simply be wrong.
The OnePlus 3 is set to make its debut sometime in the second quarter of 2016, which means we should get an official look at the device by the end of June. It could also arrive a lot earlier, so check back soon for more news on the device

Alleged OnePlus 3 Pictures Appear On Twitter, Front And Rear Of Device Shown Off

Third time lucky? The OnePlus 3 is right around the corner and as if on cue, leaked images of the phone have appeared on Twitter, courtesy of @krispitech (although they appeared on the Chinese social network 'Weibo' first). It unfortunately has a case disguising the looks of the phone, but there's still a fair bit on show. Most noticeable is a hardware home button, probably hiding a fingerprint sensor, similar to those on the original OnePlus One and the OnePlus 2, although this button looks chunkier.
The device looks reasonably large - it's quite possible that OnePlus has kept the same screen size and resolution - 1080p - from their previous two flagships for the third time running.

It’s only been a few days since we first caught a glimpse of what was allegedly the upcoming OnePlus 3. Although not your typical blurry cam photos, view of the phone itself was largely obstructed by an odd case, hiding most of the phone’s design. Today, a new leak is giving us a much better look at the phone and it’s sporting a design that looks strangely familiar with HTC’s One line…

With the front and back in plain view, you can see the OnePlus 3’s rumored all-metal body, sectioned off by the same antenna bands you find on most metal phones these days. It’s not that it looks bad, mind you. It’s just that the design is so tired and played out, we’re actually crossing our fingers this is merely a prototype and that OnePlus is actually planning for something much more original than what this leak is showing us. Even after you take a good look, it’s hard to tell if we’re looking at a new phone or the HTC One M9.


Unlike the last time we saw the phone, this leakster goes the full mile, powering on the phone. It’s here we get a look at the software it’s running, with OxygenOS prominently displayed along with the OnePlus 3’s rumored codename (RAIN). So far, we don’t know what the phone will feature as far as hardware specs are concerned, with leaked benchmarks showing a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 16/8MP cameras.
Metal unibodies don’t come cheap, so if OnePlus wants to hit the same price point as the previous year’s model, they’ll need to skimp out in some areas (we just hope NFC is left in this time around).

OnePlus 3 allegedly spotted in leaked pics









Back in February OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei announced that the OnePlus 3 would officially debut sometime at the end of the second quarter of 2016, pegging its release for sometimes around June. Now that we are pretty close to that time frame, it’s no surprise to see the amount of leaks related to this device increasing. This time around we have leaked images giving us a solid look at what may be the anticipated next-gen ‘flagship killer’.


To be fair, this isn’t the first time there have been photos leaked purporting to be the OnePlus 3, but we previously ignored covering such rumors due to the photos appearing a bit suspicious — odd looking back, no pics of the screen running, etc. Now we can’t speak for certain on the validity of this latest batch of photos but they certainly look a bit more convincing then anything we’ve seen to date. Of course, we’d still take them with a pitch of salt.


If the images are correct, the new OnePlus 3 ditches its Sandstone Black finish in favor of an all-metal design. Overall the design is more than a little different than its predecessor, though the front-facing fingerprint scanner can be clearly seen in the images and it’s really no surprise to see this feature making a return.


That’s about all we can glean from the OnePlus 3 leaks, though we can turn to the rumor mill for a few other alleged specs. Rumors claim we’ll be seeing two versions of the OnePlus 3, one with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage and the other with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. Pricing is expected to be aggressive as seen with its predecessor. There aren’t too many solid rumors about the rest of the specs, though a Snapdragon 820 is pretty likely.


What do you think of the OnePlus 3’s design, provided these images are accurate? Share your thoughts down in the comments.

OnePlus 3 images leak yet again, this time showing USB Type-C port




So all it took was one leak that started it all, and now OnePlus can’t seem to stop the gushing flood of leaks coming out about its upcoming flagship, the OnePlus 3. We have new images of the prototype, and by our reckoning the build quality seems to be getting better from the first leak up to this point. This time, we’re treated to the features around the sides and bottom of the purported new flagship killer.


The OnePlus 3 looks to be made out of metal, and some of us think they may have gotten cues from the HTC 10. The front shows the shiny protective glass screen, plus what is probably a fingerprint sensor on the home button. These new images actually give us a view of the bottom of the phone, where a USB Type-C port resides.

Apart from that, there is still no clarity on the other specs. Rumors talk of at least a 5-inch screen or bigger, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, and as much as 6GB RAM. What’s new is that some people are saying OnePlus might actually bring back NFC capability, which they skipped on the OnePlus 2.



This is looking good. We’re excited about when this would become official. Would you consider the OnePlus 3 as your upgrade this year?

Oh, hi there, OnePlus 3!





OnePlus 3. Click to expand.

Here it is folks. The OnePlus 3 just leaked in a glorious press render, courtesy of Evan Blass.
The high resolution image reveals an attractive metallic device that takes design cues from competitors like the HTC One and Huawei Mate series.
According to Evan Blass, the metallic unibody isn’t the only major upgrade the OnePlus 3 is receiving. While the OnePlus One and the OnePlus 2 featured IPS LCD panels, the OnePlus 3 is moving on to AMOLED, the technology that most consumers and experts recognize as superior. If that turns out to be true, the OnePlus 3 will join the ranks of a growing cadre of devices equipped with OLED panels, supplied in large part by Samsung. It’s a shift that we expect more manufacturers to make, as OLEDs become cheaper than LCDs, and the influential Apple adopts OLED for the 2018 iPhone.


The OnePlus 3 will be equipped with a 3,000 mAh battery, according to @evleaks. The OnePlus 3 is actually a downgrade in this regard – the OnePlus One rocked a 3,100 mAh unit, while the OnePlus 2 moved to 3,300 mAh. Looking at the press render, it looks like the device will be super thin, which explains, at least in part, the decreased capacity. But OnePlus may have a hard time selling this compromise.
Like a lot of other devices from the past year, the OnePlus 3 will feature a raised camera, and, judging from the apparent size of the lens, the sensor could be quite large.
The press render closely matches the leaked hands-on photos that we spotted last week. Those images, which showed a stealthy black version, gave us a better look at the phone’s slim sides. As it often happens, the OnePlus 3 looks much better in the press render, making us wonder if it’s some sort of damage control by the company.


The OnePlus 3 will probably feature a Snapdragon 820 processor, coupled with 32GB or 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. The frontal fingerprint reader and the USB Type C charging port are making a return, but the presence of NFC is still up in the air.
OnePlus has been pretty quiet over the past few months and that makes us hopeful that the company is done with attention-grabbing stunts, including the dreaded invite system. When will the OnePlus 3 arrive? We don’t know, but given the fact that press renders are already popping up, it shouldn’t be too long.

OnePlus 3 crazy-fast charging detailed in Oppo leak








Earlier this month we learned that the OnePlus 3 could feature insanely fast charging thanks to some new technology from Oppo. Now a fresh leak reveals more info on the Chinese company’s VOOC Charging.
Press renders of Oppo’s upcoming Find 9 smartphone (via GizmoChina) offer some details on the technology. The alleged advertisement notes that the device can get a full charge in just 15 minutes. The company adds that this is five times faster that “conventional chargers.”
Oppo previously said the 15-minute charge time applied to a 2500mAh battery. So it should take a little longer to power up most flagship phones. Even so, it could be significantly faster than competing fast-charging technology.
The OnePlus 3 is also expected to pack a 5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 820 chip, a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The company could also offer a cheaper model with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for about $310.
The OnePlus 3 is rumored to debut later this month before launching this spring. As for the Oppo Find 9, it’s expected to arrive in June and pack a similar lineup of flagship hardware, though it’s unclear when (or if) that device will arrive in the U.S.

OnePlus 3 launches Loop VR headset, and is giving it away for free









OnePlus is “upping the ante” when it comes to VR product launches.
Because launching new devices in virtual reality events is already passé (Samsung did it, and so did Google), OnePlus now wants to offer the “world’s first global shopping experience in VR.”
The company has teamed up with Ant VR to offer a headset called Loop VR. Pairing it with any device (“most 5-6-inch phones”) will allow you to explore the Loop, OnePlus’ own little virtual space station, complete with a section where you can purchase the OnePlus 3 ahead of everyone else.
That’s right, OnePlus wants you to buy the OnePlus 3 in virtual reality, and to ensure that you can explore its virtual store front, the company is giving away 30,000 Loop VR units.
You can claim yours right now – the device is free, but you will need to pay for shipping. Claim yours here.

Carl Pei Hints At No Invite System For OnePlus 3





OnePlus 3 is OnePlus’ upcoming third-generation flagship smartphone. The company has introduced three smartphones thus far, the first and second-gen flagship, and the OnePlus X mid-range which arrived last year. That being said, a number of OnePlus 3 leaks and rumors surfaced in the last couple of weeks, including a number of alleged OnePlus 3 images. The latest image that surfaced was a render which shown off the alleged OnePlus 3 smartphone. Based on that image, the OnePlus 3 will resemble the HTC One M9 when it comes to the device’s back, and the front side of the phone actually resembles the OnePlus 2 and a number of Meizu-branded handsets. The OnePlus 3 will be made out of metal, and based on what we’ve seen thus far, the front-facing fingerprint scanner will be back, though we still don’t know if that is a touchpad or a physical button.

OnePlus’ CEO, Peter Lau, said recently that the OnePlus 3 feels great in the hand, and by doing that he basically kicked off a series of OnePlus 3 teasers we can expect in the coming weeks. Well, a new OnePlus 3-related rumor surfaced in China quite recently. As most of you know, OnePlus’ past flagships were not all that easy to purchase soon after their release, mostly because OnePlus uses the so-called ‘invitation system’. You basically need an invitation in order to buy the product, which makes it easier for the company to control sales, and that was necessary mostly because the company was not able to meet the demand so quickly (production capacity). OnePlus tends to remove the invite-only policy months after the device gets released, and based on the newest rumor from China, the invite-only policy might not be in use this year. About four months ago, Carl Pei, OnePlus’ CEO, said that the buyers will be treated to a ‘better buying process’. Many of us instantly assumed that this means the invite-only policy will be gone in 2016, and based on his recently Twitter post, that might be true. Mr. Pei posted the following sentence to Twitter recently: ‘Who’s looking forward to invites making a comeback?”. This is a rhetorical question considering nobody wants that, and this might be Carl Pei’s way of teasing the no invite policy this time around.

That is more or less it, all that remains now, is to wait for OnePlus to unveil their new flagship, and see what we’re dealing with this time around. Chances are we won’t be seeing the invite-only policy this year, but let’s wait and see what happens, the phone will probably arrive in the next month or two.

OnePlus 3 specs leak: 5.5-inch 1080p, SD 820, 64GB, 16MP









OnePlus has begun teasing its new smartphone ahead of its expected launch by the end of next month and today, we’re hearing some concrete information on the specs from perennial tipster Evan Blass (aka @evleaks). In a tweet, Evan posted a screenshot from an Android N preview build on the OnePlus 3, which suggests that OnePlus’ new smartphone will either run Android N at launch, or be updated soon after Google releases the update this summer.
OnePlus 3 basics: 5.5-inch 1080p, Snapdragon 820, 64GB storage, 16MP rear camera, NFC. SS from an N preview build. pic.twitter.com/u1a0hQoEIP
— Evan Blass (@evleaks) May 24, 2016
What are the specs of the OnePlus 3? According to Blass, the handset will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display, which a previous leak suggests could be of the AMOLED variety. That previous leak also gave us our first look at a render of the new device, which should see OnePlus switch from the glass and plastic materials of the OnePlus X and OnePlus 2 respectively, to a more premium metal build. Indeed, OnePlus CEO Peter Lau recently teased the OnePlus 3, when he said it feels “good to hold”.
What about the rest of the specs? Whereas Full HD might be somewhat disappointing for users (like myself) who were hoping for Quad HD, the rest of the specs list is most definitely flagship-worthy. Blass suggests the OnePlus 3 will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor with 64GB storage, a 16MP rear camera and NFC. A previous leak suggests we’ll see two versions of the OnePlus 3, one with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage and the other with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage with a price point for both expected to be in the $300-$400 price range.

The OnePlus 3 will be unveiled on June 14









The OnePlus 3 has been subject to quite a few leaks over the past few days. Renders have been shown off, specs have been outed, and the new handset has even been spotted in the wild. One thing that hasn’t been confirmed yet is the release date, but thanks to a tipster of ours we now have that information.
Talking to a OnePlus representative about the recently-launched (and sold out) Loop VR headset, one of our readers asked the rep when the OnePlus 3 launch will take place. The representative confirmed that the OnePlus 3 will be fully revealed on Tuesday, June 14th through the company’s VR launch experience.
Below you can find a screenshot from that conversation.

So what will the upcoming flagship offer? According to a recent leak, the OnePlus 3 will come with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 64GB of on-board storage and a 16MP rear-facing camera. It will also have NFC on board this time around (thankfully), and will run Android N once Google makes it official.Although the specifications aren’t confirmed yet, it looks like we’re only three weeks away until we know all the details for sure.
Based on the leaked renders and specs, are you looking forward to OnePlus’ next flagship? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Thanks for the tip, Ashi!

OnePlus 2 Now Just $299, OnePlus X Now $199





When the OnePlus name was originally launched, it was clear that the Chinese upstart was in the business of making sure that users can get access to quality experiences without the associated cost. The original OnePlus One was arguably one of the best value devices to be launched back in 2014, and the OnePlus 2 was well-priced when it launched last year, so too was the OnePlus X. With the OnePlus 3 – and possibly another budget offering – on the horizon, it’s no surprise that OnePlus is giving potential customers even less of a price to jump onboard with. Today, the Chinese brand has reduced both the OnePlus 2 as well as the OnePlus X.

The Snapdragon 810-powered 5.5-inch OnePlus 2 is arguably the better option here and has now been lowered to $299, which gives users 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. While it doesn’t feature a Quad HD display, instead sticking with a 1080p panel, it does also offer dual SIM card support and some other extras you won’t find elsewhere. The OnePlus X meanwhile, which debuted last year at a lower price point is getting reduced down to just $199, which makes the OnePlus X one of the best value for money devices in the world, where GSM networks are concerned, of course. This will give users a Snapdragon 801 CPU with 3GB of RAM and a respectable 13-megapixel camera as well. That Snapdragon 801 might not be all too modern, but it’s certainly capable and should give budget-minded consumers a lot for their money.

The news was announced over at the official OnePlus forum earlier today, and those that purchased either a OnePlus 2 or OnePlus X within the last 14 days of today’s price drop will have the difference refunded if they contact customer services. The OnePlus brand might be one that some are unsure of, but with mostly stock Android and quality hardware, they will feel similar to Nexus devices for a lot of users and a great offering to those new to the world of Android. One important thing to note however, is that the OnePlus 2 nor the OnePlus X feature NFC chips, which means that they won’t work with Android Pay or other NFC-powered payment methods.

No surprise: TENAA listing confirms OnePlus 3 specs and design






If you had lingering doubts about the veracity of the OnePlus 3 leaks, you can put them to rest now.
The OnePlus 3 just visited China’s TENAA database and it’s exactly what we expected.
First off, the certification images match to a T the render shared by Evan Blass earlier this month. That’s despite a theory that the render was just a decoy that OnePlus threw out there to ensure the surprise when the real thing launches.
We’re seeing the same metallic unibody with HTC One-style antenna bands, the same camera and flash, and the same rounded fingerprint sensor up front. It looks like the silent mode switch is returning and the side shot also tells us that the rear camera will protrude quite a bit.


The TENAA entry comes with a full set of specs, but there are no surprises here. The details that leaked earlier this week are all confirmed:
  • Snapdragon 820
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB storage
  • 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED
  • 3000 mAh battery
  • 16MP rear camera
  • 6 x 74.7 x 7.3 mm
  • 160 grams
  • Light gray, black or gold
With virtually nothing left to the imagination, OnePlus is betting on virtual reality to spice up the launch of the OnePlus 3. Reportedly slated for June 14, the OnePlus 3 launch event will take place in the virtual environs of a space station dubbed Loop. Moreover, the first place where you’ll be able to buy a OnePlus 3 will be in virtual reality. OnePlus 3 has distributed 30,000 free Loop VR headsets, but you’ll be able to use any VR system to watch the launch.
If the OnePlus 3 doesn’t pique your interest, now it’s a good time to buy one of OnePlus’ other devices – they are now even cheaper.
