After a couple of teasers and leaks about it, the OnePlus 3T was finally introduced today, during a special event.
From the very first time we heard its name, we weren’t expecting several changes in terms of design and today, the Chinese manufacturer confirmed our theory. The handset looks exactly like the OnePlus 3, rocking the same dimensions, the only difference being a new color option, presented as “Gunmetal”.
Snapdragon 821? Yes, please!
However, the biggest changes are under the hood, as the OnePlus 3T comes with the Snapdragon 821, instead of the 820, alongside 6 GB of RAM. It’s available in two storage options, 64 or 128 GB, both UFS 2.0, says GSM Arena.
Moving on to the camera, it has also remained unchanged from the previous model. However, it does have a sapphire crystal covering it now, for improved scratch protection. Things change when it comes to the front-facing unit though, which has received a significant boost in resolution.
The OnePlus 3T is using a 16 MP Samsung-made snapper, with a f/2.0 aperture and a 1.0 nm pixel size. The selfie cam also features phase detection autofocus and it’s able to shoot full HD videos, at 30fps.
A bigger batter? Yes again!
The improvements list continues with the battery, as the 3T made the jump to 3400 mAh, a bit bigger unit, compared to the OnePlus 3’s 3000 mAh power pack. This should obviously increase the overall battery life, which is a big plus in our book. Speaking about battery, the phone supports the 20W OnePlus Dash Charge.
Finally, we should mention that the phone is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is a bit disappointing, considering that some rumors were pointing to 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
As mentioned above, the OnePlus 3T will be available in Gunmetal, as well as Soft Gold, starting with November 22 in North America and November 28 in other territories. The 64GB version will set you back of $439, while the 128 GB model has a price tag of $479.
