The OnePlus 3 is slated to comein two variants with speculated pricing putting the 64GB high-end model at CN¥2,499 ($384, £266) while the base 32GB model could be priced at around $314. While the 32GB model will hold a RM of 4GB, the 64GB model will hold 6GB of RAM capacity.

Rest of the features will remain the same like a 5.5in 1080p display panel which will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset, a 16MP camera on the rear and an 8MP front shooter.

Although the device was expected to run on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow based Hydrogen OS 2.0 for the Chinese market and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow based Oxygen OS 3.0 for rest of the regions, a freshly leaked screenshot show otherwise. The OnePlus 3 may just be the first smartphone to come pre-installed with the yet unreleased Android N preview build version. The OS, however, will not be completely stock Android, like other phones running on Android OS and run on the Oxygen OS 3.1.0.
