The OnePlus 3 features a new metal back design, similar to that of an HTC M9 or later, with anodised aluminium and curved edges. The device is available in two colours, Graphite (black/grey) and Soft Gold (white/gold, available soon globally). Additionally, users can purchase protective covers in Kevlar or black apricot wood,bamboo, rosewood, and sandstone which takes care of the camera hump and evens it with the phone.
The device is slightly smaller than its predecessor, the OnePlus 2. It’s 2.5mm thinner, 0.9mm shorter, and 0.2mm narrower, but still has the same screen size, at 5.5in (139.7mm) across diagonally. The display is still 1920x1080p, comparable to that of the previous two models, but the 3 is the first flagship OnePlus to have an optic AMOLED display. As is typical for most smartphones, the OnePlus 3 features Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.
