The OnePlus 3 was launched in back in June. Immediately after, it was lauded by many tech news outlets as OnePlus’ return to form. The follow up to the widely criticized OnePlus 2 has once again found its limelight as the “Flagship Killer”. Aside from its unique approach to a device launch, the OnePlus 3 brings with it a killer specifications list and price point which puts other flagships to shame.
OnePlus 3 Specifications
The OnePlus 3 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Quad-core CPU clocked at 1.6 GHz supported by 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. It also comes with the Adreno 530 graphics processor. The device brings with it a 5.5-inch 1080p Optic AMOLED display with what OnePlus claims to be one of the worlds thinnest bezels. The OnePlus 3 has a 16-Megapixel, f/2.0 main camera with phase detection autofocus and Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS). The front camera has a capable 8-Megapixel, f/2.0 sensor but lacks OIS. The OnePlus 3 is also one of the first Android devices with USB type C.
On the software end of things, the OnePlus 3 comes with the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. However, while the interface is relatively stock, it runs on OnePlus’ own OxygenOS. The operating system has made a name for itself being one of the lightest and smoothest customisations to Android in the market. In addition, the OnePlus 3 comes with Dash Charge. Dash Charge is OnePlus’ proprietary implementation of quick charge technology. The company claims that you’ll be able to get a day’s charge in 30-minutes. Keep in mind, the battery on this device is a 3000mAh slugger.
After a long one and a half month wait, it looks like we finally have word of when the much anticipated device will be making its Malaysian debut. The device’s arrival was first teased by local distributor, Brightstar on their Facebook page a month after the official unveiling. However, we now have confirmation via Lazada Malaysia that the device will be arriving on Malaysia’s shores on the 9th of August. In fact, Lazada has already put up their pre-order pages for the Graphite and Gold editions of the OnePlus 3. The official price of the device comes in at a mere RM1,888 which includes a OnePlus flip case and pre-applied screen protector out of the box. It comes with 1 year OnePlus Limited Warranty.
