OnePlus 3 has just come out and it has made fans happy once again with high-end specs and a surprisingly affordable price tag. The new phone is a huge leap from the OnePlus 2 in terms of specs, design, features, etc. and OnePlus has done a really good job on this. But the smartphone industry is evolving very fast and the company can’t rest now. It will have to make sure that the OnePlus 4 turns out much better than the OnePlus 3.

Of course, it may seem too early to talk about the 2017 OnePlus flagship. But even the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 rumors and leaks have started, and it is highly likely that OnePlus already has plans charted out for the OnePlus 4. The OnePlus 3 carries great specs, but more exciting features like modular attachments, 3D Touch-like display, etc. are needed to really make the OnePlus 4 stand out of the crowd.

OnePlus 4 Rumors

With that in mind, let us discuss the OnePlus 4 specs, features, release date, price, and other aspects. Of course, keep in mind that these are just rumors and speculations as of now and are heavily subject to change. But at least we can talk about what we can and what we should be expecting from the OnePlus 4.

OnePlus 4 Release Date

OnePlus 3 was released in the second half of 2016 and in the second quarter. Keeping that in mind, the company will not keep the OnePlus 4 launch date outside Q2 2017. So we should expect the next OnePlus flagship to be launched around May or June next year.

OnePlus 4 Price

Note that the 64GB variant of the OnePlus One was launched for $349, while the OnePlus 2 64GB variant carried a launch price of $389. The OnePlus 3 has been launched at $399 and has surprised us by not getting a major bump in the launch price as compared to its predecessor. So if we were to make a guess about the OnePlus 4 pricing, we would say that the next flagship will start at $419-$429. Of course, costlier variants can be expected.

OnePlus 4 Specifications

Considering the mammoth specs that the OnePlus 3 came with, OnePlus 4 specs can be expected to be a notch higher. OnePlus 4 might come with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage as a minimum. Chances of having an 8GB variant are very less, but it will be exciting to see the massive 8GB RAM. The new smartphone could surely get minimum 128GB internal storage and a 256GB variant. It will be powered by the next-gen Snapdragon 830 processor for sure that will be faster and more efficient than the Snapdragon 820 used in 2016 flagships. Better cameras are obviously expected, and we can guess a 21MP or 23MP rear camera with a similar front camera.

OnePlus 4 Features

Let’s talk about the exciting features that the OnePlus 4 could come with. First of all, we expect dual cameras in the device, as this is a trend that’s catching up fast. The new device might also feature a 21/23-megapixels camera. OnePlus 4 could get an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor that can be embedded inside the display so that there’s no need for an external sensor. A curved Edge screen can be expected, and we could ask for a pressure-sensitive screen, but that would raise the price of the phone. At least OnePlus 4 can be made modular to support modular attachments like the new MotoMods for Moto Z.

Can you think of anymore exciting features that we could see in the OnePlus 4? Do comment below.

    Many people need high quality front and back cameras.
    Many need a good battery.
    and also a very unique and astonishing design. Maybe a curved screen. And also at least battery must be greater than 3500mAh.
    The non physical home button makes it unique in a way and many people likes it.
    One plus 2 had a unique design in the back of the camera and flash but one plus 3 is now kinda common camera placing. But anyways one plus is the best cause for a reasonable prize we get a very good phone.

    Here’s what I expect (hoping) to see:
    Snapdragon 821 2.4GHz
    6GB LPDDR4
    64GB eMMC + microSDXC 256GB slot
    5.5″ 1080p IPS
    Nearly identical design, but fill out the camera bump with a 3600mAh battery like in the 1+2
    Physical home button, not just a biometric fingerprint scanner
    16MP rear camera, f1.8, 4Kp30 or 1080p120, full manual, RAW photo/video
    8MP front camera, display flash, f2.2, 1080p30, full manual, RAW photo/video
    Android Nougat 7.0 with OxygenOS (perhaps an updated version?)
    USB-C Dash Charge 4A
    3.5mm audio/mic jack (since Apple is pulling an Apple), not just an adapter.

    Hopefully I’m not missing anything.

    Alternate “premium” version:
    Snapdragon 830 2.1GHz (8-core?)
    8GB LPDDR4
    128GB eMMC
    5.5″ 1440p IPS
    20MP rear camera
