The OnePlus 3 is the Chinese manufacturer's latest high-end device and, like previous models, offers flagship-level specifications and features at a mid-range price point. The main camera module is centered around a Sony IMX298 16MP sensor with on-sensor phase detection. The chip comes in the 1/2.8" format and has a pixel size of 1.12-micron. The lens has a fast F2.0 aperture and optical image stabilization. The system is capable of recording Raw image data, 4K video and 720p slow-motion footage. At the front an 8MP Sony IMX179 sensor with 1.4-micron pixel size and F2.0 aperture is capable of recording digitally stabilized 1080p Full-HD video in addition to self-portraits.
The rest of the specification reads very nicely as well, especially considering the 3's price point. Images can be viewed and composed on a 5.5" 1080p AMOLED display that is protected by Gorilla Glass 4. Android 6 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and a generous 6GB of RAM. There are 64GB of internal storage which unfortunately is not expandable. A fingerprint reader, dual-SIM connectivity and NFC are on board as well. The 3,000 mAh battery supports quick charging and all the technology is wrapped up in an anodized aluminum body that is available in Graphite and Soft Gold colors.
