While OnePlus seems to be giving buyers a reason to buy its OnePlus 2 smartphone, by even putting it up on open sale in India, it now seems that smartphone may soon become obsolete. This is because fresh news from China points out that OnePlus will be holding an event on 7 April to launch the successor of its current flagship tagged as the OnePlus 3.

The news about the launch comes from GizmoChina that has also leaked out an AnTuTu benchmark revealing the hardware specifications of the upcoming smartphone that is tagged as the OnePlus A3000.

Oddly, there is nothing exciting here as it packs in the usual flagship hardware that we have now gotten used to. This would include a Full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The handset that seems to be going through some testing runs Oxygen OS with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

As for the cameras the benchmark reveals a 16MP primary camera while a front-facing 8MP camera is in charge of selfie duties.

While the hardware details seem pretty standard, OnePlus seems to have upped its base storage capacity to 32GB instead of the usual 16GB.

Not much is known about what the OnePlus 3 will look like. Recently we did get an idea thanks to some leaked renders from Taiwan.The leaked images that show concept renders of the OnePlus 3 reveal a slimmer design. The front is made of glass while the back appears to be a textured material (which will probably be replaceable). The rest is familiar; a metal frame seems to hold the front and back in place.
