OnePlus 3 design and specs confirmed by regulator filing

The final design of the OnePlus 3 and many of its specifications have been confirmed by a filing with Chinese regulator TENAA. We now know for certain that the handset will have a curved metallic back, and 2.5D curved glass on its front.

We already had a good idea what the OnePlus 3 was going to look like, thanks to a leaked press render that was published by the reliable Evan Blass (@evleaks). However, this TENAA filing all but confirms the pretty new look, which — as we’ve noted before — is HTC-esque.

The images also give us a good glimpse at the OnePlus 3’s front, which is covered in glass that’s broken up only by the handset’s front-facing camera and physical home button — which should feature a fingerprint scanner.

The filing also confirms that the OnePlus 3 will offer a 5.5-inch Full HD (1080p) display like its predecessors, plus Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 16-megapixel camera on its back, and an 8-megapixel camera on its front.

Other specifications include a 3,000mAh battery, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

OnePlus will make the OnePlus 3 official on June 14 at an event that will be broadcast in virtual reality. We should find out then when the device will be available, how much it will cost, and whether you’ll need an invite to get one.

In the meantime, OnePlus is looking to shift some of its older devices with a store-wide sale, which sees $50 knocked off the OnePlus One, OnePlus 2, and OnePlus X.
