OnePlus has already begun teasing the launch of its upcoming smartphone, with a giveaway of VR headsets and the promise of a virtual reality shopping experience.

The company hasn’t announced a launch date, but you can now get a closer look at what the OnePlus 3 will look like, thanks to Chinese wireless regulator TENAA.

Images from the handset’s certification documents show a central home button on the front that’s likely to double as a fingerprint reader.

The device will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED screen, a 2.15GHz processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB of onboard storage and a 3,000mAh battery. It’ll run Android 6.0 and weigh in at 160g, a significant chunk (15g) lighter than last year’s OnePlus 2.

Of course, it’s worth noting that this is the version that will become available in China and there may well be other variants for different regions.

It’ll be interesting to see how OnePlus prices this, given that rival ZTE has just launched its Axon 7 with seemingly more powerful specifications like 6GB RAM and a 2K screen for $450.
