The potential OnePlus 3 or OnePlus X successor may launch in multiple variants with a rumored reveal date late next month.

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.

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.
