OnePlus 3T with Snapdragon 821 SoC launched in India, prices start at Rs 29,999 – Full Specs, features, and More
OnePlus have been successful with the OnePlus 3 which is currently one of the best smartphones to buy in the range of Rs 30,000. The Chinese smartphone maker announced an upgraded version of its flagship smartphone in India – the OnePlus 3T.
The OnePlus 3T is going on sale in India in two variants, differentiated by storage. The 64GB variant is priced at Rs 29,999, while the 128GB variant is priced at Rs 34,999. Both variants of the OnePlus 3T will be exclusively available from the company’s online retail partner in the country – Amazon India – from 12.01am IST on December 14.
The OnePlus 3T was unveiled globally last month and has since gone on sale in the US, Europe, and the UK.
The differences between the two smartphones are the inclusion of a faster SoC, a higher resolution front camera, a larger capacity battery, and increased inbuilt storage. The new smartphone also comes in a Gunmetal color variant and foregoes the Graphite color variant of the original.
The OnePlus 3T features a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) Optic AMOLED display protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4. The new features of the OnePlus 3T include the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 (with two 1.6GHz Kyro cores and two 2.35GHz Kryo cores), Adreno 530 with 6GB RAM. It is powered by a 3400mAh battery with support for the company’s Dash Charge (5V 4A) fast charging technology.
On the photography front, OnePlus hasn’t tweaked a lot to the primary camera, which is still a 16-megapixel snapper with Sony IMX 298 image sensor, f/2.0 aperture, PDAF support, and 4K video recording capabilities. Up front, though, instead of an 8-megapixel snapper, the OnePlus 3T features a 16-megapixel fixed-focus selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and 1080p video recording capabilities.
The OnePlus 3T also features a fingerprint scanner embedded into the home button up front, an Alert Slider on the side, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card (nano) slots, 4G LTE (with support for India’s LTE bands), Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, USB 2.0 Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, and GPS/ A-GPS. The OnePlus 3T runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based Oxygen OS and will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat later this year. It measures 152.7×74.7×7.35mm and weighs 158 grams.
