The Chinese Flagship killer manufacturer, OnePlus, has launched the third generation of its impressive flagship devices in India and we could not be more impressed. This new handset comes with a design like none of its predecessors and also brings back missed features like NFC and fast charging. This time around the handset maker has got rid of the invite system and the device is available to purchase right away on Amazon.in. Here is all that you need to know about the latest flagship killer from the handset maker.
Premium All Metal Design: With the OnePlus 3, the Chinese handset maker is ditching its signature sandstone make. OnePlus 3 has finally put all rumours to the rest as it comes with same metal unibody design that were leaked in the rendered images. This smartphone indeed has a design that looks like a cross between an HTC smartphone and OnePlus X, and we are not one to complain.
Fingerprint Scanner: The newly launched flagship killer retains the front home button from its predecessor. This home button also doubles up as one of the fastest fingerprint scanner to exist in smartphones today.
Oxygen OS: The split of OnePlus with Cyanogenmod saw the handset maker come up with its own custom operating system based on Android. This OS is called Oxygen OS and comes with tons of customisation and performance enhancement features. A good option for those who are looking for a powerful handset.
Dash Charging: OnePlus 3 has been launched with the Dash Charging technology that the handset maker claims to be the fastest and safest in the industry as of now. This technology can charge the handset from 0 to 60% in just 30 minutes, which is a good news.
Might heat up: Being a metal clad smartphone, it is natural for OnePlus 3 to heat up more than the normal handsets. This is because metal disperses heat faster than plastic and feels hotter to touch. However, this is perfectly normal for any Android smartphone.
