OnePlus has always managed to offer its devices at budget-friendly prices, but the company may outdo itself again with this year’s handset. A new report claims the OnePlus 3 could start at just 1999 yuan (about $310), making it even cheaper than the OnePlus 2 ($329 at launch).
The news comes from GizmoChina via an alleged OnePlus employee. The insider notes that $310 will cover the baseline OnePlus 3, which packs 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a Snapdragon 820 processor. There’s also a premium model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for a presumably higher price.
The OnePlus 3 is also expected to come equipped with a 5-inch 1080p display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter and NFC. It also runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
OnePlus already said it plans to reveal the new phone in the second quarter of 2016, which means it could arrive any day now. Rumor has it the company is planning an event for May 18 before launching the OnePlus 3 in June. So we’ll keep an eye out for any more news as the release draws closer.
