The OnePlus 3T is due out on Tuesday with a slight change in specifications and, perhaps, price from the OnePlus 3. The question for the road ahead: will OnePlus deign to iterate early next year or wait with bated breath to grab hold of top-notch components for a little less?

Tech cognoscenti on Chinese microblogging site Weibo are talking about potential specs and design of what could be the OnePlus 4 or, if Asian superstition about the deathly number “4” is to be avoided, the OnePlus 5. Perhaps both will be found in some way next year and this could just be the start of a new release cycle for the company — a main model and a bump-up follow-up shortly after.

Specs could include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 or an iterative “835” with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Two cameras would be on the rear for some sort of augmented or mixed reality use. A glass encasement would hold in the 4,000mAh battery and the rest of it all, including the 5.3-inch quad HD AMOLED screeen.

Keep in mind that OnePlus’s announcements usually come in late spring or early summer and usually pose as a reaction to the traditional OEMs’ flagship launches — that is to say there is road to cover yet.
