The upcoming OnePlus 3T: 5 expected new features that will set it apart from the regular OnePlus 3

For the past few months, we've often mentioned the OnePlus 3 as being one of the very best value-for-money phones out there. Packing top of the line hardware specs with а design that does not lag behind its competitors in any way both make the OnePlus 3 a device that has been often cited as the true "flagship killer of 2016", a reiteration of the mantra that helped the original OnePlus One build a dedicated following. 

Now, the OnePlus 3 is by no means an outdated device, but OnePlus, the manufacturer behind it, obviously desires its flagship phone to remain the best bang-for-buck offering on the shelf. And how does one do that in the technology world? Well, pretty simple - you put the latest bleeding tech in a new device and you're likely good to go.

That's what OnePlus is seemingly doing with its next device -- the rumored OnePlus 3T -- which will reportedly become official in 5 days' time, on November 15.

Now, for the most part, we expect the 3T to be mostly similar to the OnePlus 3 in terms of design and most hardware features. We expect a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED display, 6GB RAM, a 3,000mAh battery, and a front-positioned fingerprint scanner to make the cut.  However, there are a few key areas in which the OnePlus 3T will differ, and we felt obligated to highlight them - check them out below:

They would totally rock if they lower the 3 price tag and release the new one at 399, like the previous.

I may cry if that happens!! I'll still take it at $479. I want a Pixel but I have been tight with my money, This may do the trick, OnePlus 3T for Me.

No, just no. There will much resentment from current OnePlus 3 users if they lower the price.

Why so, if they lower the original one by some $50 and launch the new one for $429. I think that will be a smart move. $50 reduction almost after 6 months will justify as many OEM's do that.

I swore this was supposed to have a bigger battery as well. And don't be surprised if we see an LCD screen...not saying it WILL happen, just saying it could.
