OnePlus 3T Tipped to Sport the Brand New Sony IMX398 Sensor
  • The OnePlus 3T will have the latest Sony camera sensor
  • It will be powered by the Snapdragon 821 processor
  • It is expected to be unveiled in December

OnePlus is expected to launch the OnePlus 3T variant sometime in December, and the smartphone is pegged to sport an upgraded processor and run on Android 7.0 Nougat. Now, the latest leak hints that the OnePlus 3T will also sport the brand new Sony IMX398 rear sensor.

According to TechUpdate3, the upcoming OnePlus 3T will come with a 16-megapixel Sony IMX398 sensor, instead of the 16-megapixel Sony IMX298 sensor seen on the OnePlus 3. Just to recall, the OnePlus 3 sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with PDAF, OIS, EIS, f/2.0 aperture, 4k video recording, and RAW image support.

For those unaware, the Sony IMX398 sensor is the latest from the company released first on the Oppo R9s. The OnePlus 3T is set to be the next smartphone to sport this sensor.

Apart from this, OnePlus 3T is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 821 processor and run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat-based Oxygen OS out-of-the-box. It will sport the same build design as the OnePlus 3, and will also embed Dash Charge support. There's also a rumoured shift to LCD panel instead of the Optic OLED display, and the price is expected to increase by $80. The shift to LCD panel rumour could just be false, as CEO Carl Pei had recently confirmed that the company would continue to use Optic OLED panels in the anticipated future.

OnePlus is expected to offer all of these upgrades (and maybe more) for an increased price of $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.
