OnePlus has announced the launch of its latest flagship smartphone – the OnePlus 3T.
The device looks identical to its predecessor the OnePlus 3, which launched earlier this year, however the new model includes a number of improvements both in terms of hardware and software.
It includes Snapdragon’s powerful 821 Processor, with 6GB of RAM, the most found in any smartphone currently available, which should mean the 3T can handle gaming, multitasking and just about anything else you throw at it with relative ease.
The OnePlus 3T is made from premium space grade aluminium and includes chamfered edges around the speaker grill and USB-C port.
According to OnePlus, the 3T offers excellent battery life thanks to its new 3,400mAh battery which is an improvement from the 3,000mAh battery in the OnePlus 3.
The Dash Charge feature found on the OnePlus 3T can give you enough power for a full day of use from just 30 mins of charging, the company claims.
The improvement in battery life comes despite the 5.5 inch 1080p optic AMOLED display, which One Plus says out performs regular AMOLED displays, offering more vivid colours and visibility in all manner of lighting conditions.
The 3T now includes a 16 megapixel front facing shooter, up from the 8 megapixels offered on the OnePlus 3. While the rear facing camera, which also has 16 megapixels, includes a Sony IMX 298 Sensor, f/2.0 aperture, with optical image stabilization, and can also shoot 4k video at 30fps.
The OnePlus 3T will be available in December and will ship with Android Nougat, powered by its Oxygen operating system, which delivers an almost stock Android like experience.
The OnePlus 3 enjoyed enormous success worldwide, and despite not being officially launched in Thailand is available from online retailers or from other countries in Southeast Asia including Malaysia, Vietnam and Singapore.
As with all of its phones, Chinese startup OnePlus will market the 3T as a more affordable flagship smartphone to rival the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7, iPhone 7 and Google’s new Pixel smartphone.
