Just a few weeks ago, there were reports saying that OnePlus will be unveiling a new device before the year ends. While most people expected a supposed OnePlus 3 Plus, recent rumors suggest that the upcoming device will be called OnePlus 3T instead. As per the latest news, the said OnePlus 3T device could be launched this November.
OnePlus 3T News
As per a Phone Arena report, the said new OnePlus phone might be launched November 14. It could cost around $480 and come with some relevant improvements. The OnePlus 4 on the other hand, is still expected to be released next year. As per the report, it could be launching summer of 2017. Right now, the nearest thing fans can get to a new OnePlus is probably the supposed OnePlus 3T.
OnePlus 3T Specs
The OnePlus 3T is expected to retain some of OnePlus 3's specs including its 6 GB RAM, 5.5 inch screen, 1080 x 1920 display resolution and 64GB/128GB storage options. The 3000 mAh battery, Dash Charge feature and the phone's overall design should also remain the same. The only expected changes will be its processor which could be upgraded from Snapdragon 820 to Snapdragon 821 and its native OS which could now be Android 7.0. GSM Arena says that OnePlus 3T's rear camera might still be 16MP but it could use a Sony IMX398 sensor instead.
OnePlus 3T Verdict
It's clear that OnePlus is keen in standing by their "flagship killer" motto. Even though the OnePlus 4 is coming in in a few months' time, OnePlus already gives its fans and its competitions an upgraded version of their 2016 flagship. Now that a bunch of new smartphones has already been released before the year ends, OnePlus might not want its flagship device to be considered old. If the OnePlus 3T is indeed coming in with Android Nougat from the box and be powered by a more powerful Snapdragon processor, then it is definitely every other flagship's nightmare.
