We reported in March about a possible OnePlus 3 reveal coming in April, but this proved to be completely false. Now, new entries in the GFXBench and Geekbench databases are suggesting that a new OnePlus smartphone is still in the works. Listed as "RAIN A3000" in both databases, the device shows slightly different specifications depending on the source. GFXBench shows it to be a 5-inch smartphone with a FHD panel, Snapdragon 820 SoC, 32 GB eMMC, and 4 GB RAM. On the other hand, Geekbench claims it to be a smartphone with 6 GB RAM with a second "RAIN A3003" SKU carrying 4 GB RAM. Both smartphones will carry a slower unspecified 1.59 GHz Snapdragon SoC compared to the Snapdragon 820 as claimed by GFXBench.
Looking deeper into the GFXBench database reveals even more details about the unnamed OnePlus device including a rear 16 MP camera with 4K recording and a front-facing 8 MP camera. PhoneArena is speculating that this may be a direct successor to the OnePlus X based on the 5-inch screen size as a hypothetical OnePlus 3 would likely have a 5.5-inch screen size instead to be more in line with the OnePlus 2.
Finally, a Chinese tech portal is predicting a May 28th reveal date for the next OnePlus device, though this should be taken with a grain of salt. The current OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X launched with little fanfare due to their middle-of-the-road hardware features and universally disliked "Invite" system that was eventually lifted in the months to follow.
