There were a couple of rumours suggesting that a shortage of AMOLED displays was forcing OnePlus to start producing Oneplus 3 devices using LCD displays, but that was later disproved from a tweet from co-founder Carl Pei saying that they will be sticking to AMOLED screens “for the foreseeable future”.
OnePlus will be staying with Optic AMOLED displays for the foreseeable future.

That being said, a picture recently showed up on chinese site “MyDrivers” showing a new OnePlus model dubbed the “A3010”. Seeing as how the OnePlus 3 has the model name “A3000”, it isn’t unreasonable to assume that this is the upcoming OnePlus 3s.
It’s definitely not the OnePlus 4, as it is only logical that the model would follow the naming convention at “A4000″… and it’s too soon for a launch like that anyway.
This phone should be using a non AMOLED display since there have been limitations set by Samsung (who produces them). Other specs include the Snapdragon 821, Android 7.0, and 6GB of RAM. However, these are all just rumours. We will update you as more information is released.
Oneplus 3s Rumoured Specifications:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 Processor
- 5.5″ IPS LCD Display
- 6GB RAM
- Android 7.0 Nougat
