The OnePlus 3 is finally here after numerous leaks, getting launched aboard a virtual reality space station dubbed the Loop. As leaked in a premature ad listing, the phone is priced at Rs 27999 in India and is now available invite-free via Amazon.
The OnePlus 3 marks a big departure for the company when compared against its predecessor. First-off, the company has opted to carve the phone out of an aluminum alloy for a more premium look.

The latter can be powered up to 60% within 30 minutes courtesy Dash Charge technology without any excess heat. The phone’s 16MP rear camera additionally boasts of both Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) to reduce blur and a Smart Capture tool.
