    Ladies and gents,

    The OnePlus 3T has now been revealed (15 November 2016).. is anyone excited?

    The new device will be powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.35GHz.

    The phone will still feature the 5.5-inch Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) Optic AMOLED display and 6GB of RAM along with the same 16-megapixel rear camera but with an all new front facing camera for those selfie lovers!

    There's also larger capacity battery in the mix at 3400mAh.

    Unfortunately there has also been a price bump especially significant for us British folk at £399 up from £329 for the 64gb version!

    Think I'll pass!

    KKH

    Doesn't sound like much of an upgrade from the OP3. I just want nougat.

    That should mean a price drop on the OP3 that may have me pull the trigger on that one. Of course I am eager to read reviews about the upcoming OnePlus, hope it is a winner.

    Agreed. I'd imagine the new OP3T replace the OP3 at $399 USD and the OP3 drop in price somewhat. I just hope they don't make the OP3T more expensive just because it's running the 821.... unless they have new "features" that warrant a price increase.

    Last I read is that the new OP3T is $80 more though so we'll see.

    Thanks. I honestly haven't been following the rumors so I didn't know what to expect. I would just hope it wouldn't be more for just a minor refresh.

    The weakest thing in the OP3 is definitely the camera, namely its low light performance. If they managed to improve that then it seems like a worthy choice for those who don't already own an OP3. Otherwise I don't see much need for it as the OP3 is fast and has a pretty good battery life and charges so fast it doesn't even matter much.

    The cons of OP3 for me were camera and display. So no reason to try again.

    3,400mAh battery size is a GREAT improvement, and 6GB RAM standard, and the SD821 is good too, ( but not a big improvement over the SD820 ) And 64GB option is nice other than 32 or 128 only.

    All of this for almost have the price of the Pixel XL. This is what a Nexus device should be like, and affordable phone, with near flagship specs. I'd take this $439 phone, over the $800 PIXEL XL any day, way more value for your buck, and the custom ROM scene is very good on the OnePlus phones.

    Biggest shortcut they've took to save costs this year. Unfortunately it's the most frequently used aspect as well and very obvious. Pentile AMOLED @ 5.5 inches is too much of a trade off.

    I wonder if they've sorted the camera software out. When I had the OP3 it would blow highlights and get grainy far too easily. Be a shame upgrading the sensor and having iffy processing.

    Maybe the same as the folks owning the first OP who did not feel the OP2 was worth getting.

    Honestly, if you're a OnePlus 3 owner, this isn't that big of a deal.

    Also, it's unclear whether or not the 3 will be cheaper. OnePlus might leave it the same.

    I think they have the right idea. For Android devices, it's all about early-year releases when Qualcomm releases their new SoC's.

    Anything that comes out in the late year is too late since in a couple of months they would be a generation behind.

    I just sold my OPO3. Might look at the OPO3t only if the camera is better. The battery is a lot better also and Nougat roms are already available for the OPO3.

    If they leave the OP3 the same price, I rather get the new one. The price of the OP3 on the preowned market is what I would be monitoring more so though.

    My only beef with the OP3 is its camera performance in low light. Since the OP3T doesn't seem to improve on that, I don't really care. Even if it did I would not bother upgrading. There's always a OP4 coming sometime next year.

    Minimal upgrade for a minimal price change > mediocre upgrade for a higher price change.
