Other rumoured specifications include, Snapdragon 821 SoC, instead of the Snapdragon 820 seen on the OnePlus 3. It is also expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat-based OxygenOS out-of-the-box. The OnePlus 3T is said to sport the same design and build as the current flagship, and even support Dash Charge functionality.
According to some fresh rumours, the OnePlus 3T might come with LCD panel instead of the optic AMOLED display used in OnePlus 3. Now, looking at the price bump, we can expect this rumour to be true indeed. However, OnePlus CEO, Carl Pei recently tweeted out saying that “OnePlus will be staying with Optic AMOLED displays for the foreseeable future.”
However, there is no official word from the company yet. So, you are advised to take this report with a pinch of salt. Stay tuned for more updates!
