OnePlus is all set to launch its new OnePlus 3T smartphone which is widely expected to be an upgraded variant of the OnePlus 3.
The upcoming OnePlus 3T smartphone will be unveiled at 1pm ET (11.30pm IST) on Tuesday via a Facebook Live video. Ahead of the official launch, a couple of leaks have made it to the Internet revealing some more details. A tipster on Weibo has posted an image claimed to be of the OnePlus 3T alongside sharing some details of the specifications. As per the leaked image shared by Weibo tipster (first picked up by Trendy Techz), the OnePlus 3T looks identical to the already available OnePlus 3.
The Chinese company has shared some teasers on Twitter for the upcoming OnePlus 3T which claim the handset will sport “more precision”, “more power”, and “more never settle”.
Some of the innards details shared by tipster include Snapdragon 821 processor, which has been already confirmed by the Chinese company. OnePlus, earlier this month, teased that the upcoming OnePlus 3T will be powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.35GHz. In terms of memory, OnePlus 3T is expected to carry the same 6GB of RAM same as the original model.
The handset is also said to come in 64GB and 128GB storage models while will pack 3300mAh battery. It is also said to sport f/1.7 aperture compared to f/2.0 aperture seen on the OnePlus 3.
In a separate leak, the unannounced OnePlus 3T smartphone has been listed by Oppomart. The listing appears to be a placeholder for the online retailer and features specifications that have been rumoured for the handset for weeks. The Oppomart listing pegs a price tag of $499 (roughly Rs. 34,000) which is more than the original OnePlus 3 that was launched at Rs. 27,999 in India.
The handset has already been leaked in several benchmarks suggesting some innards. Based on preliminary leaks, the OnePlus 3T is said to run Android 7.0 Nougat-based OxygenOS which is likely to bring performance improvements.
Another enhancement rumoured is in the display panel, the Chinese company is said to go from the Optic AMOLED of OnePlus 3 to LCD in OnePlus 3T. However, this may not pan out, since CEO Carl Pei recently said that OnePlus will continue to use the Optic AMOLED in the anticipated future.
One the camera front, the OnePlus 3T is rumoured to ship with a 16-megapixel Sony IMX398 sensor on the rear, instead of the 16-megapixel Sony IMX298 sensor present on the OnePlus 3.
