We have repeatedly been saying that OnePlus 3 could be upgraded with a new model soon. Now, it is the popular leakster, Evan Blass aka evleaks who revealed some vital details about the OnePlus 3T pricing. If you remember, unlike earlier rumors, recent Weibo posts made by an unknown smartphone revealed that the upgraded OnePlus smartphone could be called as the OnePlus 3T.

Now, evleaks reveals that the OnePlus 3T could be priced $80 more than the current OnePlus 3 pricing. This puts the device close to the $480 mark, which sounds decent enough, provided there are some good upgrades. Also, the Chinese pricing could be lower, somewhere around 2999 Yuan ($442) sounds more realistic as the current gen OnePlus 3 retails for just around $369 in the domestic market.
First of all, we expect the OnePlus 3T to feature the faster Snapdragon 821 chipset. While the 6GB RAM is expected to be the same, we could see a 128GB ROM version. Another possible upgrade could be in the display department, with the company opting for better resolution LCD panels to combat the shortage faced by AMOLED panels used on the current OnePlus. However, it’s worth noting that OnePlus CEO said that the company plans to continue using AMOLED panels on its devices, so we will have to wait and see what happens.
Considering all these rumors and leaks, there is a good reason to believe that the OnePlus 3T model exists. So, it will probably be just a matter of time until the flagship is unveiled.
