Have you been trying to get your hands on the OnePlus 3 but you are finding it hard to do so? For those unfamiliar, it turns out that OnePlus might be having a hard time trying to keep up with demand, with the soft gold OnePlus 3 being out of stock and the Graphite model being several weeks back ordered.
Now according to a report from GizmoChina, it seems that OnePlus could be considering putting an end to the production of the OnePlus 3. Wait, isn’t that a bit too early? Yes it would, but fret not because apparently in place of the OnePlus 3, the company could be planning an upgraded model in the form of the OnePlus 3S or the OnePlus 3 Plus.
So what’s the difference between the OnePlus 3 and this alleged new model? According to GizmoChina’s sources, the difference would be OnePlus shifting from the use of AMOLED display panels to that of LCD. Apparently OnePlus is having trouble with production because of the screens.
Another rumored change is that the phone will be upgraded to a Snapdragon 821 chipset, a chipset which is currently in use by Google’s new Pixel phones. Of course this should be taken with a grain of salt as it is rather unprecedented as far as OnePlus’ habits are concerned, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled all the same.
