OnePlus 3 coming this summer

OnePlus 2 flagship killer to get a successor with new design this summer

Company founder Carl Pei unveiled that OnePlus' next-gen flagship killer will feature a new design and is expected to launch by the end of July.

Although OnePlus 2 has not been around for long, the Chinese phone maker behind it already has clear plans for a successor. OnePlus launched two flagship killers so far, as well as the mid-range OnePlus X handset. While OnePlus 2 did not bring any major changes compared to its predecessor, the OnePlus 3 promises to offer a whole new design, says Carl Pei.

OnePlus' co-founder talked to CNET and mentioned that OnePlus 3 will arrive "at the end of the second quarter." Unfortunately, he refused to mention any detailed specs and features, only revealing rather general things. He said the upcoming flagship killer will adopt a new design, and he hopes the handset will charm users at least as much as the notorious OnePlus One managed to.

OnePlus 3 is expected to hit the US and other markets as an unlocked device and, according to Pei, the company will sell it directly and will offer a "better buying process" - most likely finally pushing the invitations system aside. At last, it should also be remembered that OnePlus' co-founder says they will begin to use "traditional marketing" strategies as well, and the US is a key market for them this year.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
