Sometimes it’s good to take a break from covering new smartphones and tablets and instead take a look at concept designs. These often set our minds racing over future prospects, and today we’re looking at a OnePlus idea. It may not be the much-rumored OnePlus 3, but the OnePlus S is a budget killer phone concept instead.
Some readers may have seen the Lenovo Vibe Alpha concept that we reported on yesterday. It was created by DeviantArt member r4yNTv, who has also envisioned this OnePlus S smartphone. This one also comes with a hugely detailed specs sheet that’s really worth checking out. We’ll outline the key specs here, and if you want the whole caboodle you can see the finer details at the source below.
The designer of the concept has also given a budget price of $199, £169, or €219 for this OnePlus S, so what do you get for the money? Specifications include a Snapdragon 650 hexa-core processor, and a 5.2-inch AMOLED display with Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 featuring 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4. It has 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable), and a 3150 mAh battery.
Further OnePlus S specs include a 13-megapixel rear camera with IMX278 RGBW sensor, f/2.2 aperture, EIS 2.0, laser autofocus, and dual-tone LED flash. There’s also a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper with 88-degree wide-angle lens. Connectivity options include 4G LTE and VoLTE support and it’s a dual SIM dual standby handset.
As far as the design is concerned it’s described as a hybrid of the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X. It has an aluminum frame and chamfered edges, and a removable 2.5D curved sandstone reverse. The phone also features IP65 certification giving it a degree of water-resistance, and a fingerprint sensor. This OnePlus S concept is certainly an interesting idea, and remember, you can see fuller details at the source link.
