One plus upgraded “Flagship killer’ of the year 2016, now the upgraded version is called OnePlus 3T. However, the 3T has similar designing to the older OnePlus 3. Everyone must be interested to know why 3T, there is no significant meaning of “T”. Unlike most of the competitor who uses “S” OnePlus has opted for “T” just next letter in the alphabet.
The phone comes with 5.5inch AMOLED display with the resolution of 1080×1920 at a PPI of 401 pixels per inch. The newer OnePlus is powered by latest Snapdragon 821 chipset (a faster, 2.35GHz found in Google’s Pixel or the LeEco LePro3) from Qualcomm and comes with 6GB of RAM. The phone comes with a storage option of 64GB and 128GB and no slot for expandable storage. Keeping customer feedback, the company has improved the battery with 3,400mAh. Though with improvement in processor and battery power, the phone isn’t any thicker or heavier than before. It still supports the company’s proprietary Dash Charge fast charging system that is designed to stay cooler than other fast charging technologies.
The phone comes in two new colors, “Soft Gold” similar to that 3 and a new “Gunmetal” color. The rear camera of 3T is the same 16-megapixel with optical stabilizer, similar to that found on 3, but with a more scratch-resistant sapphire lens cover and improved electronic image stabilization for shooting video. Whereas, the front facing camera is bumped from 8-megapixel to 16-megapixel with an improved low-light performance.
The 3T is coming with an updated version of Oxygen OS based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The company has said it will roll the update to Android 7.0 Nougat by the end of the year. Both the 3T and 3 will receive an update at the same time in future.
The OnePlus 3T will be available for purchase from November 22nd for US customers and for European customer it will start for November 28th. The price of a 64GB model will start at $439 and 128GB model will cost $479, an increment of $40 to $80 over the OnePlus. We are hopeful, we will see this phone soon in the Nepali market. The price of the device can be between Rs.55000 to Rs60000 depending upon the storage option.
