OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 3T yesterday which is the company’s latest flagship device. With the new phone out, lots of people have been wondering what will become of the OnePlus 3?
Will the company continue to sell it and market it at a cheaper price? Before the OnePlus 3T launched, the OnePlus 3 went out of stock in the official store, but the company commented on Twitter saying the device will be back in stock, eventually.
However, according to Android Authority which reached out to OnePlus for clarification, the OnePlus 3 will no longer be sold in the US and Europe. The company said it has no plans of bringing it back in these markets.
Even so, there’s still a chance the OnePlus 3 will be made available again in other markets, so it won’t disappear from the face of the earth. After all the phone is barely 5 months old.
The OnePlus 3T brings light updates over the OnePlus 3, so it seems the Chinese company doesn’t see a point to keeping both models in the store, at least in the US and Europe.
The OnePlus 3 is $40 cheaper than the OnePlus 3T, but the differences between them aren’t ground shaking. If you haven’t seen the news yet, the OnePlus 3T arrives with the same 5.5-inch display with 1080p resolution, but now packs a newer Snapdragon 821 processor, an advanced selfie snapper of 16MP variety and a chunkier battery.
Check out our complete comparison between the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T to learn about all the differences.
As we told you yesterday, it doesn’t really make a lot of sense to upgrade to the OnePlus 3T if you already own an OnePlus 3.
But those looking to jump onboard with OnePlus for the first time, will most likely go for the OnePlus 3T directly, although the phone is a $40 more expensive. So OnePlus probably doesn’t see a point in keeping both models in stock. Especially since the company is plagued by AMOLED display supply issues.
