The rounded back and line patterns are reminiscent to the HTC 10 with front and edges not unlike the Galaxy C5.

According to recently emerged photos from Chinese social cite Weibo, the unannounced OnePlus 3 flagship will be taking cues from the HTC 10 and Samsung Galaxy C5 series in terms of exterior design and patterns. The front of the device will incorporate a fingerprint reader with narrow bezels around the edges and rounded sides with 2.5D glass.

The latest rumors claim that the OnePlus 2 successor will carry a 5-inch 1080p display with the possibility for a second larger SKU. The flagship smartphone is expected to run on a Snapdragon 820 SoC with 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM. Very recent flagships from competing manufacturers like the LG G5 and HTC 10 both run on the same Snapdragon 820 SoC from Qualcomm.

The Chinese company is expected to unveil a new OnePlus device for a launch this year sometime before the end of the month. If the $300 to $350 price tag holds, then the supposed OnePlus 3 would be one of the cheapest smartphones available with the high-end Snapdragon 820 SoC. The manufacturer has been quiet on the device except for a recent post from the CEO boasting about the camera quality of an unannounced OnePlus smartphone.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
