[Update: Not really] OnePlus discontinues the OnePlus 3T 128 GB


Update: OnePlus today changed its website to show that the 3T 128 GB is just "sold out," not discontinued. Moreover, according to GSMArena, the company will continue to sell this variant of the phone, at least in some markets (it's not clear if the US is included here).

As of this week, you can no longer buy a OnePlus 3T 128 GB. That's because the handset is officially discontinued, as OnePlus' website itself is showing.

Apparently, a OnePlus rep said that the company stopped selling the OnePlus 3T 128 GB for a good reason: being a rather small company, OnePlus needs to focus its efforts on just "one flagship device" - obviously, the flagship device mentioned here is the upcoming OnePlus 5 that will be officially released sometime this summer.

OnePlus is still selling the OnePlus 3T 64 GB (for $439), likely because it has plenty of inventory, and there are still some months ahead before the OnePlus 5 hits the market.

While OnePlus confirmed the name of its next smartphone, as well as the fact that it's going to be launched this summer, it didn't reveal anything else about it. Anyway, rumors have it that the OnePlus 5 will be quite an attractive handset with features including a Snapdragon 835 processor, dual cameras, up to 8 GB of RAM, and a large battery.

Like the 3T, the OnePlus 5 could have 64 GB and 128 GB (or maybe 128 GB and 256 GB) variants. Hopefully, both will be available to buy from day one - we're saying this because, as you may know, the OnePlus 3T 128 GB was released months after the 64 GB model.

64 GB without expandable memory? Meh.

Well it depends on the person, because that's more than enough for me.

"Up to 8GB of RAM"...just like last year's OnePlus 3 with 6GB of RAM, nothing more than a marketing ploy. I mean, the OnePlus 3 didn't even use all 6GB! It wasn't until users complained, that OnePlus issued an update that made the device capable of using all 6GB that it had.

It isn't a marketing 'ploy' anymore...after all, it is now using all the available RAM on the phone. Except, only power users might fill it up. And I doubt anyone will use all of it when using it normally... Me for one, have the habit of killing off everything once I'm done with it except for messengers that needs constant feed. 4GB is what I need, but it's not the RAM on this phone that made me buy it.

But it worked! Oneplus 3 gained immense popularity just because of it even though most people know that 6GB is overkill for the OS at it is at the moment.

they didnt gain shet imo. im certain theyre numbers are crap. op2 was crap. and opx was crap. 3 was meh, and 3t is not moving. many other great offers today. the opo was a star at its time because they offered good specs for a decent price. today there are many alternatives.

You think oneplus 3(T) isn't a good phone because there are many alternatives? Think about it...it still offers good price/spec ratio over any flagship.

Oneplus's aim is to make the fastest Android phone in a given year. Yes, it's overkill, but that doesn't mean the phone is slow. More RAM has 0 disadvantage, unlike QHD screens or dual cameras.

That is glass. More ram can be a disadvantage, if the device isn't designed to take advantage. It still requires power whether you use it or not, so it's a battery drain. Just b3cause yiubhate QHD displays and dual cameras, doesn't mean they are totally useless. How do you expect tech to evolve if it justvstays th3 same. QHD has a benefit. Sharper text. Vibrant colors and the present displays use less lower than 1080p LCD. Dunno why you claim it has no benefit. All higher resolutions have benefits and they outweigh a y negatives. Seems you are stuck at not looking at the positive just because you don't like it, you think iymts overkill.

QHD AMOLED doesn't drain less power than 1080p LCD lol. Only at low APLs. I never said QHD displays have no benefit. I said it has disadvantages. Learn to comprehend English. The higher battery consumption is negligible in LPDDR RAM, and easily offset by the less number of times you have to relaunch apps.

"More ram can be a disadvantage, if the device isn't designed to take advantage." The device and the OS are designed to take advantage of it, it's not a question of the device taking advantage of it, it's the applications not taking advantage of it. "It still requires power whether you use it or not, so it's a battery drain." It's negligible, Android itself it the biggest battery drain and something Google need to get a handle on. "QHD has a benefit. Sharper text. Vibrant colors and the present displays use less lower than 1080p LCD." What the hell does QHD have to do with vibrant colours? That has nothing to do resolution. I'd prefer accurate to vibrant. Yes. newer displays use less power, such is progress. "Dunno why you claim it has no benefit. All higher resolutions have benefits and they outweigh a y negatives. Seems you are stuck at not looking at the positive just because you don't like it, you think iymts overkill." Reading comprehension is not your strength is it.

That's an understandable reason, but still a bummer though.

If they add micro sd support it'll be awesome.

That will probably come in their next phone. Putting Micro SD support on a phone without an SD card slot is just nonsense. What would you do? Drill holes?

So long it still has 64GB as the base storage that's fine if it's enough to attract more users to OnePlus. Personally, I wouldn't use it even it included it.
