OnePlus is revelling in the success of the OnePlus 3, but looks like the company may have already started work on next year's flagship. A fresh leak hints that the OnePlus 4 will be powered by the yet-to-be-released Snapdragon 830 processor, and will be launched sometime in June-July.

The timeframe leaked on Weibo is in line with Oneplus' usual flagship announcement period. Notably, the OnePlus 3 was unveiled this year in June as well. The Snapdragon 830 chipset has not been officially announced by Qualcomm, but Samsung last month went ahead and revealed its existence, saying it would be built on its 10nm manufacturing process. The chip is rumoured to have an octa-core setup, support 4K display resolutions, and up to 8GB of RAM. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8, the extraordinary Turing phones, and the Microsoft Surface Phone are also expected to sport this new Snapdragon 830 processor.

Furthermore, the OnePlus 4 is rumoured to have 6GB of RAM, and the processor is expected to be clocked at 3GHz. It will run on Android Nougat-based-OxygenOS out-of-the-box, and may pack a 4000mAh battery. To recall, the OnePlus 3 packs a 3000mAh non-removable battery.

The latest chipset offering from Qualcomm currently is the Snapdragon 821. OnePlus is expected to unveil an upgraded OnePlus 3T variant with this processor sometime in December. It is rumoured to run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat-based Oxygen OS out-of-the-box, and sport a 16-megapixel Sony IMX398 sensor. There's also a rumoured shift to LCD panel instead of the Optic OLED display, and the price is expected to increase to $479 (roughly Rs. 32,100).
