Tuesday evening, OnePlus pulled back the curtains to reveal its latest device, a successor to the OnePlus 3 and possibly a rival to Google Pixel. OnePlus 3T has come with several notable upgrades but not at the same affordable price. The new OnePlus 3T is expected to cost between $439 – $479 #mobilemagic
Granted, the bigger cost can be explained easily. While the OnePlus 3T looks and feels very similar to the predecessor, its hardware doesn’t lie. Under the hood you have:
- a better processor: Snapdragon 821 (at 2.35GHz), the same one sported by Google Pixel
- a bigger battery: 3400mAh
- a better front shooter: 16MP instead of the 8MP previous offering
- scratch-resistant sapphire lens cover
Besides, the OnePlus 3T has better EIS in video mode and comes with an upgraded OxygenOS, until the Android Nougat update at the end of the year. OnePlus 3T has 6GB of RAM but offers two storage options: 64GB or 128GB for the gunmetal version, the new color option for the device.
The new device is set to launch on November 22 in US and November 28 in Europe, with a gold variant expected soon.
Oh, and did you wonder why the company chose this name for their latest smartphone? Well, it’s pretty obvious: “We went with ‘T’ because a lot of other companies go with ‘S,’ and since we are OnePlus we decided to go with the next letter, read one more.”
