Rumor Has It: Is this the new Flash 3 Smartphone?

Flash has been quiet for some time but apparently they are preparing something set to be release for the Christmas Season.

Our friends from GizGuide got some info and leaks and is said that Flash would set to unleash their new Flash 3 with 4 Cameras (2 x 13MP Rear, 8MP 5MP Front) as well as sporting 5.5 inch Full HD Display, Helio X20 Processor, 3GB RAM.

There was said leak benchmark of Flash 3 via which seems to corroborate the new rumors. As per benchmark, it said to carry X20 Mediatek MT6797 Deca-Core Processor with Mali-T880 GPU, 3GB RAM, 32GB Internal Storage. Rear Camera is just 13MP though but Front Camera seems to be the Dual Camera setup with 5MP and 8MP.

Doing some digging the picture resembles of that of a TCL smartphone TCL 598. Sports the Quad Camera setup (13MP + 13MP Rear Camera; 8MP + 5MP Front Camera) and 5.5 inch Full HD IPS Display powered by Mediatek Helio X20 although this one has 4GB RAM and 64GB Internal storage. Has Fingerprint Sensor and carries battery at 3030mAh. Comes in Champagne Gold and Dark Grey.

Look what I have found, said to be leaked firmware of Flash 3! Via Needrom!

Rom 2 Multi-Language
Per Build Prop, CPU check, FUllh HD Check, and it seems Flash 3 will makes use of Sony IMX 258 sensor 13MP rear and Omnivision ov8865 for the 8MP Front Camera.

Oh look more leaks... Got Photos From Siamphone, Flash 3 will come with removable back covers in assorment of colors and texture.

With all info cropping out, we are just missing bits and pieces to get full feature of the phone.

Here is my take on this, Flash may introduce two variants in the market with 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB Models just like they did on Flash Plus 2. With Quad Camera setup, this would be fitting to be the successor of mobigraph-centric Flash 2. I am curious what photography tricks this device would feature. Guessing it will be like that of Huawei P9 with depth of field mode and hopefully full manual camera controls. What you think?
