OnePlus 3T announcement seemingly confirmed by Qualcomm
posted by Florin T. / Nov 07, 2016, 1:32 PM
Current rumors have it that the OnePlus 3T won't be too different from the OnePlus 3 (available to buy around the world since June). The handset will run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, while the Snapdragon 821 processor should allow it to be slightly more powerful than the old model (which uses a Snapdragon 820 chipset). It's not clear what other notable novelties the upcoming phone may bring, as it seems that the rest of its features have remained largely unchanged, including a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of non-expandable storage space, and a 3000 mAh battery.
While the OnePlus 3 currently costs $399, the OnePlus 3T could be sold for $479. Like each and every other smartphone made by OnePlus, the new model will almost certainly be sold unlocked in the US and other markets. Interested?

Xiaomi mi5s+ with SD 821 is a solid performer faster than the iPhone 7 which is only faster launching games one plus 3 could be better performing than Xiaomi mi5s+

not sure about the icrap7, but OP3 is marginally faster than Mi5s Plus, Axon 7, Le Pro 3 and Zenfone 3 Deluxe when it comes to booting up, loading games and launching applications. waiting to get my hands on Pixel XL for another round of comparison.

I would hope that they would throw in something besides a switch in processor from the 820 to the 821, as the performance difference is only about 10% (5% difference to the GPU) which is not enough I think for those to experience a difference in the real world outside of benchmarks. At least it is of my opinion it wouldn't be worth an extra $80 just for a processor upgrade.

I would agree as well. Maybe some new software features or some new accessories already bundled with it. $80 more for a 10% increase in the performance alone is not enough for a $80 jump.

PA is slow to get additional details. Many sites are saying there might be an LCD screen instead, as there is a shortage of AMOLED panels, a 10% bump in battery capacity, the use of the newer "dual-core" focusing 16MP IMX398, and Android Nougat out of the box. Worth the price hike, if I must say so.
