OnePlus still making OnePlus 3, but soon it might come with an LCD panel

OnePlus today rubbished reports that it has discontinued its latest flagship, the OnePlus 3. The rumour was first popped up in Gizmo China which reported that OnePlus is facing supply shortage for the AMOLED panels so it is working on a new variant which will come with an LCD panel.

Also, this would make it a good competitor against devices such as Pixel and Pixel XL.

Not only this, reports also suggested that OnePlus has already stopped the production of the current OnePlus 3. However, earlier today a OnePlus spokesperson told Android Authority that the company is still producing and selling OnePlus 3.

In India, the device comes with 64GB internal storage which is not expandable. It is a Dual SIM device and also sports a fingerprint scanner at the Home button. A 3000 mAh battery powers this device.
