A mountain of promotional pictures have been leaked, revealing the OnePlus 3 in full glory. 

Next week we will see the unveiling of the much hyped OnePlus 3. The hype train is getting a copious amount of fuel, thanks to these leaked photos (below). The photos reveal the OnePlus 3 will indeed have an all-metal body with a design that strays away from its predecessor, and adopt a more iPhone design.

Interestingly it will weight less than the plastic OnePlus 2, despite having an all-metal body, weighing in at 160g.

Spare a TENNA?

We know pretty much everything about the new smartphone, leaks have been constant for the past two weeks revealing secs and design, even before the confirmation date. China’s regulatory body TENNA revealed a device with a 2.15GHz quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM.

The new device will remain in the phablet territory with a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 screen. The rear-facing camera will be 16-megapixels, 8-megapixels front-facing, 64GB internal memory and 3,000mAh battery. It’s registered to be running Android Marshmallow, likely with OxygenOS overlaid.

The specs match up with what has previously been leaked but there is no mention of the ‘flagship killing’ 6GB of RAM. It will most likely appear in a premium version if it does exist, meaning the spec sheet we see in front of us is for a standard version. A 3,500mAh battery is also rumoured.

The big reveal is happening June 14th for us in the west. The Chinese manufacturer will be doing the unveiling on a virtual reality space station called The Loop. If you join in to watch the press conference, you get priority to buy the new device.

To watch the press conference you’ll need a VR headset and download the app.
