OnePlus 3 finally makes its official entry into the mobile world. Presented this Tuesday, June 14 through a full broadcast virtual reality conference, this third installment in the battle of the young Chinese manufacturer for spraying equipment/price tumbles with very serious arguments.
No running to the pixels on the screen to start with a touchscreen of 5.5 inches with Full HD protection Gorilla Glass 4, is a definition of 1920 x 1080 pixels on a diagonal of 14 cm, giving a density of 401 pixels per inch display. A screen similar to that of OnePlus 2, a priori, except that, OnePlus follows in the footsteps of X via an LCD IPS panel with a slab Optic AMOLED. We, therefore, expect an infinite contrast and, hopefully, accurate color, if the manufacturer is able to imitate Samsung’s performance in the field, especially as OnePlus advance have calibrated his gamma with onions and implemented a double polarization for better readability. As expected, this is a quad-core Snapdragon 820 chip from Qualcomm (2 cores Kryo running at 2.2 GHz + 2 cores Kryo at 1.6 GHz) that drives the beast, while the storage capacity is 64 GB, without the possibility of extension, OnePlus is passing once more through a microSD card slot.
But it is especially on the RAM that the Chinese manufacturer surprising, since the 3 embarks nothing less than 6GB of RAM. This is not the first and he joins Vivo X Play 5 Elite presented in February, but remains skeptical before this RAM debauchery in LPDR4 from Samsung, certainly, but that seems a tad exaggerated, however, much OnePlus account even be justified by a loan of 3 mobile for the future. It was probably necessary to add a “wow effect” to the list of features, but we can also say that we put more RAM; the smartphone uses more (and fewer applications will be optimized since sips of RAM). See, so…
Photo side, the OnePlus 3 embeds an optical stabilization module, phase detection and f/2 aperture with a Sony IMX298 sensor 16MP (video capture until UHD/4K), while at the front, the module retains an aperture of f/2 and the sensor passes 8MP (Sony IMX179), no optical stabilization, but with a Full HD video mode.
Connectivity Ray, OnePlus 3 has Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, 4G LTE Category 6 (theoretical maximum throughput of 300 Mbps) and even NFC, conspicuously absent from OnePlus 2. This “3” can also accommodate 2 cards nano-SIM (dual standby). The USB Type-C port, it is still in the game and the fingerprint reader. OnePlus guarantees the latter a release in less than 0.2 seconds and announces a ceramic finish for the home area of the hover button that takes up again in front of the terminal.
The embedded operating system, Oxygen OS in version 3, is based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow base and away little pure Android OS. The power supply is provided by a battery with a capacity of 3000 mAh and equipped with an intelligent charging named Dash load, capable of charging 60% of mobile in 30 minutes, but also to contain the rise in temperature of the phone if the user is engaged, fully loaded, just greedy resource uses. The OnePlus 3 should join the LG G5 or Samsung Galaxy S7 in the sector of full charge in less than 80 minutes. Everything takes place in an anodized aluminum shell declined in 2 colors, gray and gold, and her measurements provide some compactness, since the thickness of only 7.35 mm, the display employing some 73.4% the front surface of the smartphone, is one of the best ratios in the high-end market.
The OnePlus 3 smartphone is available now for € 399 tariff, only in gray, golden model arriving in a few days.
