OnePlus is rumoured to launch an upgraded OnePlus 3 variant sometime in December this year. The upgraded variant will sport a new processor and run on the latest version of Android. Now, a fresh leak reveals the expected price of the smartphone as well.
According to noted tipster Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), the OnePlus 3T will be priced $80 (roughly Rs. 5,400) more than the current OnePlus 3. The tipster claims that the upgraded smartphone will be priced at $479 (roughly Rs. 32,100). Even with this price bump, the smartphone is still reasonable when compared to the other flagships in the market. Both Apple and Google flagships are priced way higher than the OnePlus 3 and the rumoured OnePlus 3T.
The OnePlus 3T is rumoured to be powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor instead of the Snapdragon 820 seen on the OnePlus 3. It is also expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat-based OxygenOS out-of-the-box. The OnePlus 3T is said to sport the same design and build as the current flagship, and even support Dash Charge functionality.
Furthermore, the OnePlus is now reportedly ditching Optic OLED display that was seen on the OnePlus 3 and instead use an LCD panel on the OnePlus 3T. However, CEO Carl Pei had recently said that the company would continue to use the Optic OLED display in foreseeable future. On its own, is the OnePlus 3T worth the price increase with its current upgrade offerings is another debate altogether.
All of this is just mere speculation, and OnePlus could add more meat in the OnePlus 3T to make it worth the price tag. Until then, we recommend you to take all the information with a pinch of salt.
