It is quite surprising that OnePlus has released a successor or we can say an upgraded variant to the OnePlus 3 just months after its launch which might make the people who have purchased the OnePlus 3 a bit disappointed due to this recent upgrade. But with only slight differences between the two having similar design and display resolution it will not matter much. While OnePlus has announced earlier this week that both their devices the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 2 will be getting Android Nougat update before the end of this year we can expect the OnePlus 3T to be getting it shortly as well.
OnePlus has priced the OnePlus 3T at US$ 439 for the 64GB variant and US$479 for teh 128GB variant. The device will be available in Graphite and Soft Gold colors and will be available through OnePlus.net starting from November 22 in the US and November 28th in Europe. The details about the availability in India is not yet announced.
