The current OnePlus 3 is an economical smartphone that has powerful specs. Interestingly, its successor is rumored to offer much better internal hardware. The upcoming OnePlus 4 is said to come with bigger RAM and crazy-fast processor. Now, here's what is currently known about OnePlus 4 release date, specs and rumors.
According to HNGN, OnePlus 4 will have the latest mobile technology. The unannounced handset may come with hefty 8 GB of RAM and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 830 processor. Tech experts say these new components would definitely boost the handset's performance even under heavy usage.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 will be built on the 10nm, making it the first processor for such innovation, as per report from WCCF Tech. Also, Qualcomm is reportedly improving its home grown Kryo cores on the processor for upgraded power consumption.
It is also interesting to note that the latest Apple iPhone 7 only have 2GB of RAM and the Samsung Note 7 have 4GB of RAM. This means the OnePlus 4 will be a better gadget with remarkable processing speed.
On the software side, the next OnePlus smartphone might come with pre-installed Android Nougat right out of the box. The Nougat is Google's latest mobile operating system that features split-screen mode.
In terms of design, we expect the phone will have a light physical rehash to make it more appealing to gadget lovers. The handset may also sport 4K flexible OLED display.
Of course, the standard features of flagship device will be installed in OnePlus 4. It will definitely offer fast-charging technology, NFC for mobile payments and USB-C port.
Rumors around the internet claim the OnePlus 4 will become available in mid-2017, specifically on June. The OnePlus 3 was released on the same month, and the company might repeat that cycle for the phone's successor.
However, it may come earlier as Samsung Galaxy S8 will reportedly launch in the first quarter of 2017. To compete with the Galaxy S8, the OnePlus 4 might be released around April or May.
