There is however a new detail leaked by a source on Weibo. The acoount @Reviewer_Well says the OnePlus 3T will launch with a new camera, the Sony IMX398. Sounds familiar right, yes it does and that is because it is the same sensor on the recently announced OPPO R9s and R9s Plus.

The 16MP shooter has a f/1.7 aperture and dual-core autofocus. It will replace the IMX298 on the original OnePlus 3 and should come with OIS like its sibling.
