The OnePlus 3T — at least, that’s what we expect its name to be — will be introduced to us tomorrow at 1pm Eastern. And in time for that, the company (and some of its unofficial tentacles) has made some shifts.
The OnePlus 3 is not on sale today. Its price, for now, remains at $399, though OnePlus claims it to be “out of stock.” For your information, the OnePlus 2 is still on sale at $299.
Unofficial marketplace Oppomart has also brought up a development with a listing of this improved and new-fangled OnePlus 3T on its site. It claims that the phone has a Snapdragon 821 with 6GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of UFS 2.0 storage. The screen, though, is very similar on paper to the OnePlus 3’s, — 5.5 inches in diameter and in full HD resolution — which is a point to ponder with rumors of the screen going from AMOLED to LCD and to quad HD resolution as well. We’re a bit doubtful, too, to hear that Android Marshmallow will ship with the phone.
The kicker is the price: $499. Not $479 as we surmised from an Evan Blass tweet. Hey, anything can happen behind the curtains.
While all this information is likely acting as a placeholder, (there’s mention of the phone “shipping with the energy efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset”) we really shouldn’t get too eager about pre-orders anyways: Oppomart isn’t even offering them.
So our advice to you is to wait. Tomorrow is only a day away.
