    So this is how the Oneplus 3 will look like.

    could we just stop with the unimaginative iPhone clones? 🙁

      Not really, camera placement and fingerprint sensor are both different than iPhone. Looks like any number of metal phones.

        it’s all the same rounded soap bar design to me with the horizontal lines, and whatnot :/

          HTC had those lines and that shape before Apple.

            dude.. 1) let me hate, it’s my passion 2) don’t pretend it’s not “the Apple design” most companies try to steal for some reason 🙁

              Except HTC has the design first, Apple copied them…

    If Oppo deliver these specs, with their newest fast charge and OIS, I guess I’ll have my new phone lol But not before seeing the design, Find 7 was a lot cool for its time, at least for me, currently expecting something less generic than those renders.

    Hope those renders are for the R9. It matches the R series too.
    The Find 5 and Find 7 had diff design. Hope they follow the same design for the Find Series. Find 7 was one of the Best looking phones IMO.

    I’m interested on the software side because Oppo is not developing so much Color OS but at the same time Project Spectrum doesn’t seems ready to replace it.

    Claimed renders. That home button would be less hideous than most but the front and the back just don’t fit together. The back is spartan and rudimentary while the front is futuristic ,or could be with a smaller upper bezel.
