During the last couple of years, we have seen new brands coming up with some quality hardware and giving fierce competition to some of the well established brands.
OnePlus is one such name that garnered a lot of attention with the launch of its OnePlus One smartphone. Last year, the company launched its first successor, the OnePlus 2, which was followed by the launch of a slightly affordable OnePlus X.
So far there has not been any information about the launch of OnePlus 3, but a recent report by Cnet which quoted the company's co-founder Carl Pei, revealed that OnePlus 3 can be launched by the end of the second quarter of 2016.
Though not many details have been revealed about the upcoming flagship device yet, the report says the device will feature a new design and will not be on the lines of OnePlus 2.
Pei also stated that OnePlus 3 will be available as an unlocked device in US as well as other markets.
He also said that the company is looking into 'better buying process' but there isn't any clear mention of abandoning invite system. OnePlus will continue to offer free shipping on its devices and will also accept payments with credit card, rather than only via PayPal.
