Not so long ago we told you that unable to deal with demand, OnePlus was entertaining the idea of releasing a variant of its new OnePlus 3 smartphone.
OnePlus is plagued by a shortage of AMOLED panels, so the upcoming phone is expected to arrive with an LCD display instead. The company’s SEO Carl Pei said the company will still be pivoting around Optic AMOLED for future products, just not the OnePlus 3T.
Anyway, a new leak coming to us from TechUpdate reveals a partial list of the specifications we can expect to see aboard the upcoming phone.
According to the information, we can expect the new handset to make a debut with a Snapdragon 821 under the hood in combination with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.
So, it appears the OnePlus 3T is getting a bump up in specs, given that the soon to be previous-gen OnePlus 3 launched with a Snapdragon 820.
The rumor also claims the phone will be equipped with a new Sony IMX389 sensor. The technology will power the 16MP main camera.
In case you didn’t know, the new Sony sensor already made a debut with the Oppo R9s and R9s Plus which were recently unveiled. It’s expected the sensor will deliver quicker and more accurate phase-detection autofocus and dual-core AF.
Other specs include an 8MP selfie camera, fingerprint sensor, 4G, USB Type-C and 3,000 maAh battery.
According to @evleaks OnePlus 3T will most likely be marketed for a bit more than the OnePlus 3. The current flagship sells for $400, but the OnePlus 3T will add $80 more.
