The OnePlus 3 might have already been a big hit for OnePlus when it was released this year. However, it looks like the OnePlus 4 would be a bigger hit when it arrives next year. The predecessor boasted of its 6 GB RAM and overall competitive specs.
As a whole, the OnePlus 3 could compete with the Apple iPhone in more ways than one. Now, rumor has it that the OnePlus 4 will do exactly just that by competing with the iPhone 7. Everyone knows that the OnePlus phones are dubbed as the flagship killer, and its next successor in line aims to keep that label.
OnePlus 4 Rumored Specs vs iPhone 7
The current Apple flagship iPhone 7 is quite an improvement over its predecessor. However, OnePlus could beat it in quite a few ways. For one, the iPhone 7's RAM is just 2 GB. The OnePlus 4, on the other hand could come with a RAM size of up to 8 GB. This might still be unverified but it's not impossible at all, considering the OnePlus 3's 6 GB RAM size.
Sure, there's more to a smartphone aside from its RAM size, and the iPhones are known for their speedy processors. This is probably why the OnePlus 4 would go for the Snapdragon 830 processor and Android Nougat OS. If the company wants to compete with the most popular phone brand, it has got to bring in the latest internals.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus brought in good cameras, with the 7 Plus boasting of its dual camera system. Now, rumors suggest that OnePlus would also put focus on improving the OnePlus 4's cameras. It was said that the device will carry either a 21 MP or a 23 MP rear camera that would make use of one of Sony's sensors.
The OnePlus 4's battery is also expected to be boosted and sized way bigger than the iPhone 7's. According to a source, the OnePlus 4 will sport a 4000 mAh battery. It would be way bigger than the iPhone 7's 1960 mAh battery.
OnePlus 4 Release Date
OnePlus 4's predecessor was just released this year, so it's pretty sure that the next flagship killer will be launched 2017. As for the price, Tech Times says it could just be a little over $400, at least when predicting based on history. OnePlus 4 may not be as globally popular as the iPhones, but it does come with specs and price that can doubtlessly beat the Apple flagship.
