There is intense speculation that the OnePlus 3’s reign at the top of the OnePlus range may not last for long, and there may be some truth in the rumors given that the talk about the OnePlus 3T simply does not go away.
The OnePlus 3T is rumored to be the next offering from the Chinese company which has had humongous success in the last two years. It was originally thought that the OnePlus 3T was being planned in order to overcome shortage, which had led to huge waiting periods in major markets like the United States, of the AMOLED panels.
However, it turns out that OnePlus have no intention of switching from the optic AMOLED panels for the time being. The only assumption for the OnePlus 3T would be the need of a device to take advantage of phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 being pulled off from the market. The OnePlus 3 provides a lot of bang for the buck with aspects like a 5.5 inch display, snapdragon 820 processor, and a whopping 6 GB of RAM. All these features are cleverly packaged into a product that can be charged to 60% in just 30 minutes using the proprietary dash charging feature.
Even with all these elements, the OnePlus 3 is not yet perfect and there are issues that leave the phone unable to compete in all regards. As of now, information about the OnePlus 3T is extremely limited although it has been confirmed an officially by one of the company’s employees on the social media site, Weibo. It is rumored that the phone will offer a 6 inch display – an improvement over the 5.5-inch screen – but without any mention about the resolution on offer.
Some of the confirmed elements seem to be the snapdragon 821 processor, a slight improvement over the existing processor. Android Nougat is set to be available out of the box, while existing OnePlus 3 uses will have to wait for an update that may take another couple of months to arrive. A slightly larger battery could also be used in order to eliminate any anxiety about the battery life. Some OnePlus 3 users have complained about less than average battery life, although the dash charging feature more than makes up for it. The new phone is expected to be available at $479, which means a slight increase over the OnePlus 3 in terms of pricing.
