OnePlus 3T to become official on November 14th?
Last month, we told you about an unknown OnePlus handset with the model number A3010 that had received its CCC certification in China. At the time, it seemed that this could be the rumored OnePlus 3 Plus. The name later became the OnePlus 3T, and the device is reportedly about to be unveiled very soon.

According to some fresh rumors that have surfaced today, the OnePlus 3T will be unveiled on November 14th. The device is expected to be priced at $480, or $80 more than the price of the OnePlus 3. There was some talk that the handset would carry an LCD display due to a shortage of AMOLED screens, but that report was shot down by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei.

The OnePlus 3T will feature most of the same specs seen on the OnePlus 3, such as a 5.5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. 6GB of RAM remains on board along with 64GB/128GB of native storage. The camera combo won't be changed (16MP back/8MP front) and the fingerprint scanner is also staying put. Also hanging around on the OnePlus 3T is the USB Type-C port, the 3000mAh battery and Dash Charge. Even the design will be staying the same.

The only changes that we can find appear to be the Snapdragon 821 SoC taking over for the Snapdragon 820 chipset. This should bring a 10% boost in performance and a 5% savings in battery power expended. And Android 7.0 will be loaded on the model right out of the box.

As for the OnePlus 4, a recent rumor suggested that the device will launch next summer with a Snapdragon 830 SoC running the show.

UPDATE: OnePlus refused to comment on the rumors about a possible release of an upgraded OnePlus 3 model.

OnePlus needs to make more than one phone a year, give us options. Three would be glorious.

Don't make much sense to do such a small update mid cycle of the phone idk maybe they will change more than the processor

Would've preferred an LCD screen and a bigger battery, over the sd821 SoC.

A little thicker like 8mm and 4000 mAh battery would be great

I agree but they need to figure out why the battery life on the OnePlus 3 is so inconsistent first. The screen on time is a bit random, anywhere from 3-6 hours with the same usage.

This makes no sense... I just bought the LeEco Pro3 yesterday for $300, and it packs an SD821, 4GB RAM, 64GB of storage, a 4070mah battery, stereo speakers, and yes it's an American variant that fully supports 4G LTE on T-Mobile and AT&T... I also bought my OnePlus 3 back in June for $400 and it was worth it then, but you can't charge essentially $500 half a year later for an SOC update... It should cost $400 still even if all the rumors were true.

A side by side comparison would be nice. I am eyeing for LePro3 as well but the OS (and assurance of future upgrade) is a letdown.

Well it is LeEco's first phone for the US market along with the smaller and cheaper S3. I would think that it's in their best interest to support their phones to build their reputation. I am using my OnePlus 3 right now and I should receive the Pro3 in the mail hopefully before the weekend so I'll see how smooth or clunky their OS is. You can also unlock the Pro3's bootloader, but we'll see if people are interested in porting ROMs for it.

If OP3 really wants to skyrocket their sales and money they need to bring the OP3 down to about 329$ and price the OP3T at 399$ I would buy one right away.

I thought for sure they would increase the screen resolution.

It makes no sense. If the rumours are true this is just a minor upgrade for extra $. They should have just released OP3 with Nougat this year and gone for a better OP 4 next year.
