OnePlus released its flagship smartphone in June 2016 named OnePlus 3 and now the company is all set to release an upgrade which will be called OnePlus 3T and is expected to have improved features. The rumours claim that the company has started the production of the new variant with latest Snapdragon 821 SoC. The device is expected to have an impressive specification and offers great functionality. There is a huge possibility that the OnePlus 3T can be launched by the end of 2016 near charismas. In case, if the launched gets delayed, then it will affect the release of upcoming OnePlus 4 as well, which is expected to come in the summer of 2017.
Alike the OnePlus 3 the upcoming OnePlus 3T is also expected to come at a reasonable price and hopefully there won't be a noticeable difference in the cost of both smartphones. The phone can give a tough competition to Google Pixel because it will have similar specifications and will run on the same operating system too. Here we are going to tell you about the expected key features of upcoming OnePlus 3T. Though, the information is accumulated from various sources and are based on speculations so it is advisable to wait till the release of the device to get confirmation.
The company has already confirmed that their new smartphone will continue to exhibit the same Optic AMOLED display as the performance was satisfactory in the previous OnePlus 3. As per the speculations the 3T will feature 1080p Full HD display with 401 ppi pixel density and the front glass will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 which is similar to the OnePlus 3 but meets the expectation of users.
Alike the previous phone, OnePlus 3T will also be made of Anodized aluminium and have an almost similar slim design. Though, the display size can be increased which will eventually affect the dimensions and the weight of the device as well so expect a bit bigger and heavier phone this time. The phone will also have one bottom-facing speaker with Dirac Power Sound technology, dual mic with active noise cancellation and 3.5 mm jack for headset connectivity.
In OnePlus 3, consumers appreciated the cool user interface of the device and the OnePlus 3T is also expected to run the same Oxygen OS with some tweaks. Though, the UI will be based on latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is coming in Google Pixel and Pixel XL and offers tons of great features. Rumours are going on that the upcoming OnePlus 3T will incorporate latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, which is built to increase the performance by 10% and enable fastest data processing.
The OnePlus 3 was launched with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage capacity so you cannot expect anything lesser than that in the new 3T. In fact, there is a possibility that they might increase the storage up to 128GB because this phone will also not support micro SD card for sure to extend the memory. You can expect better graphics, improved audio quality and some new apps in the device as well.
Although there is no official information about the primary and the secondary camera of the upcoming OnePlus 3, rumours claim that it would be better than the OnePlus 3 so we can definitely expect a rear camera with at least 21 or 21 MP rating because the OnePlus 3 had a 16MP rear camera. There are also chances of getting some extra features such as laser autofocus or larger lens aperture.
One thing is sure that there won't be any change in the sensor size and other features like OIS (optical image stabilization) and EIS ( electronic image stabilization) will also remain in the new model. The front facing camera which offers 16MP resolution with 1.0 µm pixel size and takes a nice selfie. Though, if they provide a wide viewing angle which is suitable for group selfies, then users would be most delighted.
Rumours are going on that the OnePlus 3T will come up with a 3,400 mAh battery or may even offer more than that because the previous phone came with a 3,000 mAh battery and that was the only drawback in the phone. Though, power efficient processor enhances the battery life, but still the latest smartphone is expected to have a strong battery. As far as the connectivity options are concerned the T3 will include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/nac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC and will support all network bands including 4G LTE. It would be a dual SIM phone that will accept Nano SIM cards.
