Orders for the newly announced OnePlus 3T are shipping
The OnePlus 3 made quite an impression with all of us at PhoneArena, surpassing all-comers to the flagship segment in 2016. Even among the latest crop of devices to come to market in the latter part of the year, the OnePlus 3 is still no slouch, especially when its price tag was only $399.

More than that however, OnePlus managed a near perfect launch of the device this past summer, without the need for that dreaded invitation system from days’ past.

Now, just a couple days after OnePlus started taking orders for the same-but-different OnePlus 3T, those that ponied up a small premium to get enhanced cameras, a slightly larger battery, a newer chipset, and a new color, should start receiving emails that their orders have shipped.

This time around, it looks like orders are being fulfilled directly out of Shenzhen, China. As for when your shiny new OnePlus 3T will be delivered, you will need to follow the tracking provided in the order section of your OnePlus account. Assuming these shipments are not being sent the fastest express method possible, deliveries should be made within the week.

What do you have to look forward to for a small-ish 10% price bump? The specifications are a subtle, but worthwhile refresh to a near-perfect form factor that landed barely 5 months ago. Those that hooked up with a OnePlus 3 a few months ago should not feel left in the cold, the company is promising big system updates to Android 7 Nougat before the end of the year for both devices.

Did you order a OnePlus 3T? Have you received a shipping confirmation yet? Let us know, and let us all hope the packaging does not look like it was put through the wringer en route again.

I may want to get one but it seems OnePlus phones support less 4G LTE bands than Samsung and Apple... Also the battery optimization isn't on par with the top manugacturers.

That may very well be the exact opposite of how it works. Optimization for bands is better when it's fine tuned for a few select bands. Covering all bands typically leads to less efficient reception on a given band versus a device that is dedicated to that band. If by battery optimization you mean the usage time, then perhaps. OnePlus optimizes for performance first before battery. Samsung snapdragon phones are notorious for lag as has been demonstrated by xda time and time again. I had a phone of theirs as well. As for OnePlus, you can get better usage time just by underclocking since it uses a FHD setup, without performance suffering. The only thing you need to worry about is whether or not they have the bands YOUR carrier uses.

Is it just me or the gunmetal grey color of OP 3t looks kind of like copper color in their official photos.
