After building some hype around the device with the teaser campaign and ofcoz the leaks and rumors we saw, OnePlus has unveiled a beefier flagship called the OnePlus 3T. Just like the name suggests, the device is a moderate upgrade over the already available OnePlus 3.
In a flash, It looks exactly like the OnePlus 3 with the same dimensions, but there’s a new color option called “Gunmetal”. The OnePlus 3T will come equipped with a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD display just like the OnePlus 3. The device comes packing whopping 6GB of Ram as well just like the OnePlus 3 did. What’s changed is the SoC packing inside the device, and it is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821, replacing the SD820 in the older OnePlus handset. The OnePlus 3T has two UFS 2.0 storage capacity versions, 64 and 128GB respectively.
The new phone’s rear camera has remained unchanged from the OnePlus 3, with only a sapphire crystal cover added for improved scratch protection. The selfie shooter has received a huge boost in resolution; where the OnePlus 3 has an 8 MP Sony sensor, the 3T comes with a 16 MP Samsung-made sensor. The selfie camera has phase detection autofocus and support for capturing 1080p video at 30fps. It sounds pretty good!
Finally, the last improved spec might prove to be the most important one for many people – we’re talking about the battery capacity. The OnePlus 3T has a 3,400 mAh cell, which is 400 mAh more than the OnePlus 3. That should obviously ensure better overall battery life. The 20W OnePlus Dash Charge is still available, and this should translate into very fast charging times.
Talking about the software, The OnePlus 3T still runs Android Marshmallow, despite some rumors claiming it would launch with Nougat on board.
The OnePlus 3T will be out in “Gunmetal” and “Soft Gold” on November 22 in North America and November 28 in other regions. It will start at $439 (with 64GB of storage), which is $40 more than the OnePlus 3. The 128GB variant will go for $479.
