OnePlus 3 looks like a loser

Several images of the alleged OnePlus 3 have been leaked on social media and it doesn’t impress. 

We’re expecting OnePlus to announce the OnePlus 3 pretty soon, considering rivals such as HTC, LG and Samsung have already released their flagships. So what better time than now for the “flagship killers” to take aim?

The images we’ve got today are hardly flagship killer and hopefully false. Images of the OnePlus 3 were spotted by @krispitech on social media site Weibo.

The back of the OnePlus 3 is hardly edgy or different, instead it looks like a generic design we’re accustomed to from manufacturers in China. A single LED flash is what we can see on the back, hardly revolutionary and antenna bands running on top of the device, which are reminiscent of the HTC One A9. Sticking with the A9 comparisons is the home button, we see the same oval shape with laser cut edges.

We can understand why many would think this would be the next flagship from OnePlus, the operating system is shown to be Oxygen 3.0.0, OnePlus’ customised Android operating system. But suspicion is still rife. Why is a device that’s meant to be released in the next month or two, unbranded?

All the leaks and rumours are coming out now for the OnePlus 3 so we’re expecting an announcement in the next month or so. Previously OnePlus CEO Pete Lau shared a picture on social media (below), which supposedly came from the OnePlus 3 due to its bokeh (focus) capabilities.

Let’s hope the OnePlus 3 will wow us the same way the picture below did. Today’s latest leak is unlikely to be true, at least we hope so.
