New OnePlus 3T teasers suggests the phone’s name will stick


Ahead of its unveiling tomorrow, OnePlus has taken to its Weibo account to share yet another teaser of its first Snapdragon 821-powered smartphone, which is expected to be called the OnePlus 3T.

This latest image, together with its caption (loosely translated from Chinese) — “Another self, may be better for you. ‘T’, coming soon!”– appears to confirm the 3T branding we’ve been hearing about for the past few weeks.


The firm also released two more teasers on Twitter with the captions “T-2: More precision” and “T-3: More power”, corroborating OnePlus’ previous announcement that the handset will sport a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 821 CPU.

If we were to hazard a guess, we’d say that “more precision” could also be referring to the new Sony IMX395 20-megapixel imaging sensor (f/1.7) that the device is rumored to sport. Although there’s no official word on that.

Aside from the new camera and processor, the OnePlus 3T expected to feature almost identical internals to its predecessor; meaning it’ll continue to pack a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 6GB of RAM and a 3,000mAh battery.
