OnePlus 3T Launched: Price, Release Date, Specifications, and More
Highlights
  • The upgraded variant sports a faster Snapdragon 821 SoC
  • It comes with a larger storage model, at 128GB
  • It bears a larger battery, at 3400mAh

OnePlus on Tuesday unveiled an upgraded version of the OnePlus 3 – the OnePlus 3T. The only differences between the two smartphones are a faster SoC, increased storage, an improved front camera, and a larger battery. The 64GB model has been priced at GBP 399 (roughly Rs. 33,700), EUR 439 (roughly Rs. 31,200), and USD 439 (roughly Rs. 29,800), while the 128GB model has been priced at GBP 439 (roughly Rs. 37,100), EUR 479 (roughly Rs. 34,800), and USD 479 (roughly Rs. 32,500).

The OnePlus 3T will be available in the US from November 22, in Europe from November 26, and in the UK from November 28. To recall, the company had revealed India pricing and availability details at the OnePlus 3 (Review) global launch. However, this time, no India details were revealed alongside. It will be available in Gunmetal (not Graphite) and Soft Gold colour variants, with the latter being made available shortly after launch. The company also announced that a new OxygenOS build based on Android 7.0 Nougat will be released for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T at the same time before the end of this year, and going forward, the two smartphones will receive updates simultaneously.

Getting to the exact differences between the OnePlus 3T and the OnePlus 3 - the newly launched smartphone sports a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC (two cores clocked at 1.6GHz and two cores clocked at 2.35GHz) compared to the Snapdragon 820 SoC on the original. It comes in both 64GB and 128GB storage models, compared to just a 64GB model on the OnePlus 3.

As for the improved front camera, OnePlus has doubled the resolution of the front camera from 8-megapixel on the OnePlus 3 to 16-megapixel on the OnePlus 3T – whilst also switching sensors from the Sony IMX179 with 1.4-micron pixels to the Samsung 3P8SP with 1-micron pixels.

Finally, the OnePlus 3T gets a larger 3400mAh battery compared to the 3000mAh offering on the OnePlus 3. It once again supports Dash Charge (5V 4A) fast charging technology.

Everything else about the two smartphones is identical. The OnePlus 3T bears the same anodised aluminium metal unibody design, the same fingerprint sensor on the home button, and the same Alert Slider apart from capacitive hardware keys. It also comes with the same USB 2.0 Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) Optic AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The SoC is coupled with 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM.

Connectivity options on the OnePlus 3T include 4G LTE (with support for India's LTE bands), Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and GPS/ A-GPS. It bears the same measurements as the OnePlus 3 at 152.7x74.7x7.35mm, and the same weight at 158 grams.
