OnePlus is not willing to reveal the release date of its upcoming flagship OnePlus 3, but CEO of the company Liu Zuohu aka Pete Lau has been giving information in bits, creating curiosity not only among OnePlus fans but also others. Now, he has posted a selfie taken from the new phone dubbed as the "flagship killer."

The OnePlus 3 is expected to be unveiled on May 28, however, it's not confirmed yet. The OnePlus One was released in June 2014 and the OnePlus 2 in August 2015, so it would come as a surprise if the device is released at around this time, perhaps in June. It was earlier reported that the device might come on May 18, but it didn't happen.

Interestingly, Pete Lau has flaunted the 8MP front camera of the OnePlus 3 by posting a selfie taken from the yet-to-be-released smartphone, according to GizChina. It went on to say that the image measures 2,448x3264 in size. 

Pete Lau had earlier revealed in a post that the OnePlus 3 feels good in hand, and GizmoChina has the screenshot of the post. 

According to AnTuTu benchmarking listing leaked on Weibo (via 9to5Google), the OnePlus 3 will come with a 1,920x1,080p screen resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, an Adreno 530 GPU, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, 32GB internal storage, 4GB RAM, 16MP main camera and an 8MP front-snapper.

Leakster Evan Blass @evleaks has tweeted that the OnePlus 3 would sport an AMOLED display and come powered by a 3,000mAh battery, contradicting earlier report that it could house a 3,500mAh battery with fast charging technology.

According to PhoneArena, the OnePlus 3 could be priced at around $320 for the 4GB model, and $400 for the 6GB variant, compared to $330 for the OnePlus 2 3GB RAM model and $390 for the 4GB RAM. However, the price is not yet final but a projected one, after considering the past trend of the company in pricing its devices and the specifications expected to be seen in the handset.
