We’re still expecting the OnePlus 3 in Q2 of this year, so you should definitely expect the rumor mill to start churning things out as we get closer to the middle of the year. The newest rumor about the device suggests that we might see two different variants of the device, and one of the might have an insane amount of RAM.
Some new benchmarks have cropped up of the A3000 and the A3003, both of which are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 CPU, but there are some confusing facts surrounding the model numbers and code names.
First off, we have two benchmarks for two phones, both with the model number A3000. One device is codenamed “Rain” and sports a 5-inch, 1080p screen with 4 GB of RAM, and the other device is called “Rain Rain” (not a typo) and also has a 5-inch, 1080p screen but with 6 GB of RAM.
There’s also a third benchmark for the A3003 Rain Rain that only has 4 GB of RAM, which means OnePlus is going to launch a weird lineup of phones, or someone royally screwed up on internal names for test devices. Maybe both?
Other hardware here includes 64 GB of internal storage, 16 megapixel/8 megapixel cameras, and your standard suite of WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity radios. NFC is also making a comeback, so OnePlus isn’t sticking to their guns about dropping it from the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X.
It’s also worth mentioning that a 5-inch screen seems like it would be below the norm for the OnePlus 3 and might end up being the successor to the smaller OnePlus X. There’s really no telling at this point since we’re trying to piece together rumors that might just end up being typos.
However you slice it, OnePlus is expected to launch a new phone in the next few months, so here’s hoping that we get some real clarification soon.

As 2016 looms, so do rumors about upcoming devices ahead of Mobile World Congress and CES. There’s a new one about a possible 4.6-inch device from OnePlus with the same internals as the OnePlus 2.
