We are expecting many more tease before it’s mid-2017 release and hope the specs can match those of Samsung and OnePlus.
The device will be Andy’s flagship phone under his company, Essential. Essential target the smartphone and tablet market and will be looking to get their name out there with this product.
OnePlus are at it again. The flagship killer is back with the OnePlus 3: by far the best phone this year. Of course I only talk by what’s on paper. The OnePlus 3 boasts hardware like no other.
I recently purchased the OnePlus 2. I have never held a phone like it. A phone so well designed. A phone that has everything. I thought to myself, how can they make this better? Not only did they manage to do so, but this phone will still be the best going into 2017.
OnePlus have boasts 6GB LPDDR4 RAM, Snapdragon 820 processor (dual core 2.15GHz and dual core 1.6GHz), Adreno 530 GPU and a 5.5 inch Optic AMOLED display.
The OnePlus 3 packs a 16MP rear camera and an 8MP front. The battery is a 3000 mAh that can give you over 60% in 30 minuets thanks to it’s dash charge technology. The body is made from 100% aluminium, giving it a premium feel and the premium finish a phone like this deserves.
OnePlus is hailed as the flagship killer. With it’s high end specs and mid ranged pricing, OnePlus has become increasingly popular.
The OnePlus One was released in April 2014 for under £200, and was in the spotlight very quickly and it’s specs are high end despite the low cost. With its 5.5 inch (1080×1920) screen, 3GB RAM, 2.5GHz Quad-core (Snapdragon 801) processor, 13MP rear and 5MP front camera and a large 3100mAh battery, this really is the flagship killer.
In July 2015 OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 2. Again keeping up with the latest technologies OnePlus packed this full of high-end hardware, with it coming with 3GB or 4GB options, the Octa-core snapdragon 810 and USB type C, this is the phone of the future. One that should worry the likes of Samsung, Apple and HTC.
Wileyfox, a UK based manufacturer, has come up with 2 of its own phones. The First of these phones is £129 and is the Wileyfox Swift. It’s not as high-end as OnePlus, but it does support 4G LTE with dual-SIM, 720p 5 inch display 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 2GB RAM, Snapdragon 410 processor, and 16GB internal storage.
The higher end phone is the Wileyfox Storm. At £199, the Storm is a 5.5 inch 1080p screen, 3GB RAM, Snapdragon 615 processor and has a 20MP rear camera with a 8MP front camera. It also comes with 32GB internal storage. Both allow for expandable storage, with the Swift allowing up to 32GB and the Storm allowing up to 128GB and both run CyanogenOS.
