OnePlus 2 was certainly not one of the best looking smartphones out there, that’s for sure, so we have bigger expectations from the OnePlus 3. Meanwhile, the OnePlus X was quite hot, showing that OnePlus still knows how to make sexy phones. Anyway, today we get our hands on the OnePlus 3 concept created by PriceRaja, looking mighty hot.

Since I have a feeling I’ve seen this design before, I apologize in advance to any designer who may feel infringed by this design. The OnePlus 3 render here features a protruding camera area, with dual LED flash and laser autofocus, as well as a slimmer and sleeker body. It has a soft touch back, rounded edges and top, plus a Home button that doesn’t seem to be a touch one, but rather a physical one.

Buttons are more squared and the screen has narrower bezels, plus antenna cutouts at the back. A brushed metal unibody approach is mentioned by the designer, as well as a 5.5 inch Full HD screen, a Snapdragon 820 CPU and 4 GB of RAM. Then there’s a 3500 mAh non removable battery, a 16 megapixel main camera and an 8 megapixel front shooter.

Oxygen OS is the platform of choice and finally we get an USB Type C port and fingerprint scanner. Interestingly, while the specs list of the designer mentions a Full HD screen, the text talks about Quad HD. So, which one is it?

    Yeah… cuz antenna lines are so ‘sexy’… And who doesn’t love a big square camera module that sticks way out the back? The fact alone that these are trends common to phones this year does not mean it’s attractive. The bezels of the OnePlus 2 were no bigger than these and it has USB type C. The differences in design that this concept brings are all negatives in my book. Also, you can’t have a soft-touch back AND a brushed metal unibody design.
