Official One Plus 3T teaser appears as November 15th unveiling is within sight

The OnePlus 3T is a refreshed version of the current OnePlus 3 handset. It is expected to come with an LCD screen as opposed to the Super AMOLED panel on the OnePlus 3. Other changes include the use of a slightly zippier Snapdragon 821 chipset, an enhanced 16MP rear camera with a Sony IMX398 sensor and a wider f/1.7 aperture (an improvement from the f/2.0 aperture on the OnePlus 3). There is a 10% hike in battery capacity from 3000mAh to 3300 mAh.

Tonight, a teaser from the verified OnePlus weibo page shows a drawing of the back of the OnePlus 3T as the device looks into the mirror. As we would expect for a refreshed model, there aren't any changes made to the outside of the device. The image in the mirror looks exactly like a photograph of the OnePlus 3, with a "T" badge spotted on the screen.

The wording on the teaser says "To Be a Better Me #NeverSettle & NeverStop. The OnePlus 3T is rumored to be unveiled on November 15th, so stay tuned.

They could wait a few months instead and come with s830/better specd oneplus 4.. Oneplus 3 is still very capable, not outdated.. They're becoming like sony.. Two flagships in a year(flagship in the end of q1 and a refreshed flagship in q3).. Atleast sony gave 6 months gap.. This op3 released at the end of june and is hardly 5 months old! And already people started complaining about no updates for op2 and this one will make it even more worse..!

Consider Sony make the X, XZ, E, XA, Z, M an C series throughout the entire company, I am sure enough to be ok with OnePlus giving us ONE new product every 6 months IF that's the route they are truly going with OnePlus One released in June 2014 OnePlus 2 releasted in August 2015 OnePlus X released in November 2015 OnePlus 3 released in June 2016 Within 3 years with 4 products, I got nothing to complain. All that quality in SUCH an affordable price, I can't complain

But well, consider this too.. Sony has a much bigger workspace and they will provide updates at some point to all their mid and high end devices.. Mid end devices get atleast one and high end are on par with other manufacturers since the original xperia Z! Whereas oneplus is a much smaller company striving to update even one device! Oneplus one is carried by cyanogen Oneplus 2 was getting timely updates till june and after op3 released, it barely got an update or two..(I'm a op2 user, switched to halogen OS) Oneplus X got updated to Marshmallow and that is it(well they have a valid reason - outdated chipset, so no complaints) Op3 is getting good support as of now.. P.S. sony has already pushed beta nougat for xperia x performance users which has been ported to xz too! Oneplus is yet to release such software.. You can see oneplus forums if you don't believe me how people using oneplus 2/X got fedup after oneplus 3 released!

it`s nothing bad to be competitive during whole year...but problem is that it will cost 80€ more, just for having little better procesor (less than 10% better), little stronger battery(if LCD screen don't spoils that advantage) and camera... well, for a 20€ more i can buy SGS7 and for 570€, unlocked S7 Edge... yes, 3T would look better on papir, but then...there is something in brand trust, warranty, local servis centres...

With that sensor and little bit of optimization it can have equal if not better camera than S7, equal battery life. Of course worse screen. But usb-c. 3.0 quick charge. It might be getting closer to S7 price but it still has benefits over it. Not to mention the OP3 performance which is godlike compared to lagwiz.

Well it would worth 80$ bump in the price only if 10% bump in battery capacity is true AND DISPLAY STAYS AMOLED. Give me an LCD panel and sure i'll settle for original Oneplus 3.

...and 128GB storage, but 10% of battery capacity more is not good enough. smaller phones from rivals have more...

What happened to all the talk of 1 device per year?

Let's hope it won't be significantly heavier than earlier OnePlus phones. I see a worrying trend here with phones getting heavier and heavier. The ZTE Axon 7 is 175 grams while the much earlier LG G3 was only 149 grams. The Xiaomi Mi 5S is heavier than the Mi 5, their Redmi 4 is heavier than the Redmi 3 series phones. Where will this end? As phones get heavier, they are less comfortable to hold in one hand for extended periods of time. My benchmark among today's phones is the Xiaomi Mi 5 which is only 129 grams. OK, its a smaller phone than the common 5.5 incher of today but it is sooo comfortable to hold in one hand when reading for an hour or two that I would find it hard to buy something much heavier.
