OnePlus just announced 3T as expected, an upgraded version of the OnePlus 3 which was introduced back in June. OnePlus 3 is a best budget smartphone available in any market of the world and most successful smartphone from the company as well. The new device comes with some minor improvements over its preceder.
Moving to specifications, It has the same 5.5-inch 1080 Optic AMOLED display with 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, runs on Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) with Oxygen OS top and has a 16-megapixel rear camera with LED flash with EIS 2.0, phase-detection auto-focus (PDAF) and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), but this is powered by a faster Snapdragon 821 processor cloaked at 2.3GHz. This time the company, introduced a new 16-megapixel front-facing camera with Samsung 3P8SP sensor and 1.0 µm pixel size and rear camera is same with Sony IMX298 sensor, 1.12 micron pixel size, f/2.0 aperture, EIS 2.0, PDAF, OIS as we have seen on OnePlus 3.
The company increased the battery size from 3000mAh to 3400mAh battery which will surely help to provide boost in battery usage. It still has the same aluminium unibody design. For storage, the OnePlus announced a new variant with 128GB storage option and 64GB storage option will also available. The company says that 3T features the most refined version of OxygenOS yet and software updates will follow the same schedule for both 3 and 3T. The company also specified that Android Nougat is on way and will hit to both phones later this year.
