OnePlus, after numerous leaks and rumors, has finally made the OnePlus 3T official at an event in London. The smartphone is priced at USD 439 (roughly Rs. 29,800) for the 64GB variant and USD 479 for the (roughly Rs. 32,500) 128GB variant.
The company hasn't revealed any information whether the smartphone will hit the Indian shores or not. The OnePlus 3T is touted as a minor upgrade over the OnePlus 3 with powerful hardware and it is equally competitive to the Google Pixel XL.
Here's how the OnePlus 3T stands against the Google Pixel XL.
In terms of design, the OnePlus 3T has the same design as its predecessor, OnePlus 3 with all metal body. On the other hand, the Pixel XL comes with a unique design of metal uni-body and a piece of glass on the back for the fingerprint and camera sensor.
QHD Display on the Google Pixel XL
The Google Pixel XL comes with a 5.5-inch display with a QHD resolution and the display is pretty much decent. The OnePlus 3T also comes with the same display size, however, has an only 1080p resolution. So, the display section belongs to the Google phone.
OnePlus 3T has 6GB of RAM
Hardware wise, both the OnePlus 3T and Google Pixel XL comes with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset, but the Pixel XL has only 4GB of RAM, which is a bit of a letdown when compared to the OnePlus 3T's 6GB of RAM.
Both the smartphones come in different storage variants starting from 32GB. The latest addition to the OnePlus 3T is the 128GB storage variant.
Better Front-Facing Camera on OnePlus 3T
One of the biggest upgrade over the OnePlus 3 in the OnePlus 3T is the 16MP front-facing camera, which is way higher than the Pixel's 8MP front-facing camera. The Google Pixel XL's camera is rated as the best smartphone's camera and the results are pretty amazing as well.
Battery and Software
In terms of battery size, the OnePlus 3T comes with a 3400mAh battery and the Google Pixel XL comes with 3450mAh battery. Software wise, you get the latest Android experience on Pixel XL with the Android 7.1 Nougat and it has some unique features such as the Google Assistant. The OnePlus 3T comes with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow based Oxygen OS and the Chinese firm has already promised an upgrade to Android Nougat by the end of this year.
