The FCC has approved the specifications of the upcoming OnePlus 3, signifying that the affordable Snapdragon 820 powered smartphone is finally ready to enter the United States. The smartphone was earlier certified by Chinese regulator TENAA last week, so it is evident that the handset is set for world domination or at least something close to it.
The highest configured model is said to feature 6GB of RAM, which to joggle your memory a bit, is also present in phones like ZUK Z2 and is also said to be present in the upcoming Galaxy Note 7. Like OnePlus 2, OnePlus 3 is said to feature two models, with the one of them coming with 4GB of RAM and perhaps a slightly downclocked quad-core configuration.
It is also a possibility that OnePlus 3 could come with an NFC chip, a chip that was not present in OnePlus 2. While NFC has not adopted well amongst Android smartphone users, it still has its varied form of uses. The battery capacity is said to be 3,500mAh and instead of providing support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology, OnePlus engineers might be working on something that they like to call Dash Charge.
Currently, the details are out of our knowledge banks, but we can hope that it functions similarly to Quick Charge 3.0. One of the things that OnePlus 3 has going completely in its favor is the price tag. Like Xiaomi Mi5, OnePlus 3 will also feature a very affordable price tag in comparison to other flagship phones, and we hope that this time, the annoying invite program has been removed from the company’s list of approaches when customers want to purchase the phone.
It is great that an affordable flagship can be found in the market, but it should be equally easy for consumers to get their hands on it as well.
