OnePlus 4 Release Date, Specs, Features, News & Update: Flagship to Have Snapdragon 831, 4K Display & Better Camera? More Details Revealed!
OnePlus is gearing up for the launch of what is believed to be an improved version of the OnePlus 3, dubbed as OnePlus 3T. However, tech aficionados and fans are also looking forward to the next flagship of the company, the OnePlus 4. The next smartphone in the series is expected to arrive in summer 2017.
OnePlus hasn't explicitly confirmed that there will be a OnePlus 3, but due to the success of the lineup and the 2016 OnePlus 3, it is assumed that the company will release a new iteration. Although OnePlus 3 is already considered a decent smartphone with quality specs, there is still a need to improve the device -- maybe via OnePlus 4.
OnePlus 4 is still in the rumor stage but despite that, it is believed to be a strong rival against Samsung Galaxy S8. Since OnePlus 3T is already confirmed to run on a Snapdragon 821 chipset, there's a big possibility that upcoming flagship will have a Snapdragon 830 on board - the same chipset to be used in the Galaxy S8. The smartphone is also expected to have an AMOLED display, as hinted by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei.
There had been rumors that the Chinese phone manufacturer ditch the AMOLED display for an LCD panel, but in his tweet last month, he confirmed that the company will keep using the former. OnePlus 3's display size will reportedly be carried over to OnePlus 4, but it is unclear if the company will have a 4K or a Quad HD display.
As previously reported by GamenGuide, it's also likely that OnePlus 4 will keep the standard 3.5mm headphone jack instead of following in the footsteps of Apple. Other rumored specs include an 8 GB RAM, a 3,500 to 4,000 mAh battery, and a 23-megapixel main camera. As of the moment, OnePlus hasn't confirmed anything yet so readers should take this report with a pinch of salt and stay tuned to GamenGuide for more updates for OnePlus 4.
