OnePlus, after numerous leaks and rumours, has finally made the OnePlus 3T official yesterday 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.
There’s no official word on when it’s going to hit the Indian shores but will be available in the US and the UK starting from 22 and 28th of November respectively.
While the smartphone bears the same design language as the original OnePlus 3, the OnePlus 3T brings along quite a few changes. Take a look at all such changes below.
16MP front camera
While the rear has the same 16MP Sony IMX298 sensor, OnePlus has included a 16MP camera at the front. It is a significant upgrade in comparison to the 8MP camera on the OnePlus 3. The company claims that this upgrade allows the camera to capture clearer photos and videos even in low lighting conditions.
Snapdragon 821 SoC under-the-hood
The biggest change comes in the form of SoC. As expected, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset clocked at 2.35GHz as opposed to the Snapdragon 820 chipset clocked at 2.2GHz. According to Qualcomm, the new chipset offers 10% boost in the overall performance.
13% increase in battery size
The 3,000mAh battery on the OnePlus 3 while offering decent battery life, doesn't last beyond a day if you are a power user. Thankfully, OnePlus has improved the battery capacity by 13%. As a result, the smartphone now has a 3,400mAh battery. It also offers support for the Dash Charging technology.
Increased storage space
Earlier, you’d get the OnePlus 3 only in a 64GB variant. But, the OnePlus 3T apart from the 64GB variant is also available in 128GB variant as well.
The smartphone is now available in a new colour called Gunmetal unlike the OnePlus 3 which was available in Graphite. The company said that a Soft Gold colour variant will also made available shortly following the launch.
