Design: From design point of view, the OnePlus 3T and the OnePlus 3 are identical. The company hasn t tweaked a millimeter or shed even a gram of weight on the new smartphone, and that is not necessarily a bad thing. You still get a device with premium build materials like anodized aluminum. OnePlus has however tweaked the colors. While the Soft Gold variant has been retained, the new Gunmetal color is essentially a darker shade of grey when compared to the OnePlus 3 s Graphite variant. Besides the small cosmetic tweaks, most of the changes on the OnePlus 3T are under the hood.

Processor: The OnePlus 3 was powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 820 quad-core (2.2GHz dual-core + 1.6GHz dual-core) paired with Adreno 530 GPU. The OnePlus 3T, on the other hand, is powered by Qualcomm s newer Snapdragon 821 quad-core (2.35GHz dual-core + 1.6GHz dual-core) processor paired with Adreno 530 GPU. While on paper it may not really look like a massive update, Qualcomm s new processor brings in efficiency over of its predecessor. With the 821 running relatively cooler than the 820, it doesn t need to throttle the speeds as much, and can consistently run at full-speed when required. The efficiency also has a positive effect on the overall battery life.

Battery: The OnePlus 3T also features a bigger 3,400mAh battery, when compared to the 3,000mAh unit on the OnePlus 3. Most OnePlus 3 reviews confirmed that the battery was good enough to survive for more than a day. With a bigger battery, we can safely expect better battery life. OnePlus has retained its proprietary Dash Charge feature for quickly charging the battery.

Cameras: On the photography front, OnePlus hasn t tweaked a lot to the primary camera, which is still a 16-megapixel snapper with Sony IMX 298 image sensor, f/2.0 aperture, phase detection auto-focus support (PDAF), and 4K video recording capabilities. But the company has some great news for selfie lovers. In place of the 8-megapixel fixed-focus snapper on the OnePlus 3, the company has now opted for a 16-megapixel snapper with PDAF support. The front-facing camera on the new smartphone comes with Samsung 3P8SP image sensor, f/2.0 aperture and full HD (1080p) video recording capabilities. There s also a feature called smile capture , which lets the camera automatically click a selfie when it detects a grin on your face. With better cameras onboard, OnePlus has added a new 128GB storage variant to accompany the 64GB variant.

Besides these changes, the OnePlus 3T and the OnePlus 3 are identical in all aspects. You get features like 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) Optic AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection, 6GB of RAM, a fingerprint scanner embedded into the home button and an Alert Slider on the side. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth and USB Type-C. Unlike what was rumored, the OnePlus 3T runs on Android Marshmallow-based Oxygen OS.

OnePlus 3T prices

With these improvements, OnePlus has also raised the price tag of the new smartphone. The 64GB OnePlus 3T is priced at Rs 29,999, whereas the 128GB variant is priced at Rs 34,999. To put these prices into perspective, the OnePlus 3 was launched in India earlier this year with a price tag of Rs 27,999. The OnePlus 3T is set to go on sale exclusively via Amazon India on December 14.
