OnePlus 3T specs outed ahead of launch on OnePlus's official website

After much anticipation and waiting, today is finally launch day for the OnePlus 3T. We've been hearing a lot of talk about this upcoming handset, and OnePlus has announced that they'll be holding a live stream on their Facebook page to officially take the wraps off of the device. That live stream is set to take place at 1:00 PM EST, but just ahead of that stream, specs for the upcoming successor to the OnePlus 3 have been prematurely posted on the company's official website.

According to the OnePlus site, the 3T will be available in two main color options - Gunmetal and Soft Gold. The Gunmetal color looks very similar to the Graphite color option that's available with the OnePlus 3, but just ever-so-slightly darker. The processor for the phone is set to be a quad-core Kryo one with the Adreno 530 GPU, meaning that this is likely the Snapdragon 821 that we've been expecting to see in the phone for what seems like months at this point. Storage options include 64GB and 128GB, and the 3T will feature 6GB of RAM. We had heard rumors that the phone would ship with a whopping 8GB of RAM, but 6GB is certainly nothing to scoff at. Dash Charge makes its return here with a 3,400 mAh battery, and USB Type-C 2.0 and a dual nano SIM card slot also make an appearance.

In regards to the display, the 3T will be sticking a 5.5-inch size and a 1920 x 1080 Optic AMOLED panel. We also heard murmurings of an all-new rear camera, but it looks like OnePlus is sticking with a 16MP Sony IMX 298 sensor on the back. However, the selfie camera has received a major upgrade. Instead of the 8MP Sony IMX179 sensor found on the OnePlus 3, the front facing camera on the OnePlus 3T is a 16MP Samsung 3P8SP unit. 

The page with these specs has since been removed, and visiting the source link below now returns with a 404 error. Thankfully we have just about 3 hours to go before OnePlus makes the 3T officially official, but until then, let us know down in the comments what you think about the 3T's specs.

So it's a Oneplus 3 with larger battery. I can live with that since this means both can run on the same firmware and hence software development will not slow down for the OG model.

So, just the battery, processor and front camera...not worthy of an upgrade from OnePlus 3.

Wasn't the OnePlus having shortage of AMOLED panels, which slowed down it's production and couldn't keep up with demand? How come does this OnePlus 3T still feature an AMOLED panel instead of LCD? I don't understand this.

I'm glad they managed to keep the AMOLED screen but now it seems like a kinda pointless upgrade although the added specs make it slightly more viable than the OG OP3

They were planning the 3T all along, and the 3T was cannibalizing the original OP3's screens. That's why there was a shortage, and likely why they'll continue to have "shortages" of screens for the OP3

Only 5.5 inches and just 1080P screen? Also no mention of memory card slot. I think I made the right decision to go with the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. I just got it yesterday but really liking it so far. This OnePlus 3T is more equivalent to my 2 year old Sony Xperia Z 5 Premium. And I really wonder if there is proof that Android does noticeably better with 4+ GB RAM?

Quote: "This OnePlus 3T is more equivalent to my 2 year old Xperia Z 5 Premium" The Xperia Z5 Premium was launched on November 2015... That isn't 2 years ago.

You are correct it just seems like I have had it that long. I tend to buy multiple phones in any given year.

How did you manage to buy a Z5 Premium a full year before it was actually released?

Not a full year but I did get an early pre-order from expansys

They just copy Apple in everything that they can, without to violate some patent. Apple shows black color, they show gunmetal. I didn't bought OnePlus 3, because of lack of black color option and camera hump. Will not buy 3T for the same reasons. My opinion.

"They just copy Apple in everything that they can..." Did I see wrong? "Apple shows black colour, they show gunmetal." So can I just said: Qualcomn announced big.LITTLE processor, Apple announced A10 Fusion, Qualcomn copy Apple? Your comments don't make sense.

(I hate that mobile version can't edit comments...) Oops, looks like my comments don't make sense. :P By the way, black and gunmetal are different colours and you said Oneplus copied Apple?Go check your dictionary find what's the true meaning of "copy". Does gunmetal are the new black? This is my first time heard that Oneplus copied Apple.

mute button, black version AFTER Apple do it again... And I'm not Apple fan.

If anything, this is copying HTC One M8. Apple fanboys will always see it as Apple's copy. Also, Apple didn't invent black color. Plenty of phones have black color option for decades now.

Yes, Apple didn't invent black color, but after stopped producing black phones, almost all other companies stops too. Why? OnePlus is one of them. And I'm not saying that Apple didn't copy. Just they lead the industry in mobile and I do not like it. Can you remember how many OEM's produced pink phones before Apple "rose gold" - ZERO. Not an Apple fan.

Oneplus never made the Oneplus 3 black. No company made a black metal phone ever. "Can you remember how many OEM's produced pink phones before Apple "rose gold" " Quite a few of them. Xperia Z1 or Z2 compact had a pink option, Samsung Note 3 and note 4 had pink options and so on...

Seriously, why do these people make statements on things they know nothing about?

Nobody stopped making black phones because of Apple. What is this psychological need some people have to believe the world orbits Apple?

As one that is without a OnePlus 3, I think it is great.... Not worth the cost of admission if you already have the OnePlus 3.

I'm hoping the front camera will be be better than the previous one, but it's likely it'll be a bit worse in lowlight. I have to weight my options. This looks good, but you can buy a 128GB ceramic Xiaomi Mi 5 for just about $20 more than the original OP3. And that thing has notably better battery than the OP3, despite being smaller. There's also a flood of high quality Chinese phones coming out with 600-series SoCs that will be less expensive and more efficiently than this. Choices, choices, choices...

It's a great buy if you dont already have One Plus 3. I am using Galaxy S7 and I would prefer OP3T's lower resolution for the extra performance and battery life.

Nougat increases the battery life of s7 and u can switch between HD to FHD to QHD without affecting its performance
