OnePlus has launched OnePlus 3T globally. It is an upgraded variant of the popular OnePlus 3. OP3 is one of the best value for money Android smartphones you can buy today in India. It is selling for Rs 27,999 MRP. For that price you are getting a mobile powered by one of the best processors – Snapdragon 820 and comes with 6GB of ram. There are hardly any other smartphone in this price range with these good specs.
Instead of launching a new completely new flagship mobile, OnePlus has chosen to just improve it’s already best selling flagship. Both OP3 and OP3T are identical in looks. Many of the internal specs also remain the same. Check out the main differences between OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 below.
Processor : OP3T is powered by Snapdragon 821 chipset while the older OP3 had Snapdragon 820. The performance difference between these two high end processors are not going to be that noticeable in day to day regular tasks. However, it’s a welcome boost. Google Pixel phones are powered by this same processor.
Memory , Storage : RAM remains the same at 6GB. ( that’s still a lot ). In addition to 64GB variant ( Graphite Black color ), OnePlus 3T will be available in a 128GB model ( Soft Gold color ).
Camera : OnePlus chose to stick with the same Rear camera as the OP3 in OP3T – Sony IMX298 sensor. This is an above average sensor, and can give really good images in good lightning conditions. Don’t expect it to give exceptional images like Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge or Google Pixel Phones. OnePlus has upgraded the front camera sensor with a Samsung 16MP sensor.
Battery Boost : Like it’s predecessor, OnePlus 3T supports super fast charging aka Dash charging. It also has a bigger battery at 3400mAh.
All other specs remain the same as OP3. It has the same 1080P display, design, build quality, operating system, software features etc.
Expected OnePlus 3T price in India : 32,999 for the base model ( 64GB ). 128GB variant will cost probably around Rs 35K.

Which one should i buy ? OnePlus 3 or OnePlus 3T ? If money is not an issue go grab the OP3T. Performance-wise both will perform almost identical in day to day tasks. The Rear camera is still the exact same one seen on OP3. So the older OnePlus 3 is still a great device to buy. ( Check out the Current lowest price here ). If you already own a OnePlus 3, it is not a worthy upgrade to OP3 Turbo.
