Update: We’re expecting the OnePlus 4 to launch in the coming months, so you may want to hold off on any potential OnePlus purchase until you’ve checked out what’s rumored to be around the corner.
OnePlus 3T Full Specification, Features, Price, Release Date And Review
The OnePlus 3T has killed off the OnePlus 3 after half a year, and it’s now the only handset you can purchase from the firm.

OS: Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

It’s not like the OnePlus 3 had any major flaws either – it scored a highly respectable 4.5 stars in our in-depth review, and comfortably made it into our list of the top 10 best phones in the world.
So why the new model? OnePlus tells us its engineers found solutions to some nagging issues on the 3, and they didn’t want to wait another six months for the OnePlus 4 launch in 2017.
That means you’re getting slicker performance, longer battery life, a punchier selfie snapper and a new storage option – at a slightly higher price.
All that aside though, the OnePlus 3T is another stellar offering, with super performance, a strong feature set and a still-reasonable price tag.
OnePlus 3T price
- 64GB: $439 (£399, around AU$580)
- 128GB: $479 (£439, around AU$630)
You have to pay more to own a OnePlus handset now. The firm’s cheaper OnePlus X has been dead for a while, and the OnePlus 3T price starts at $439 (£399, around AU$580) for the 64GB model.
That’s up from the $399 (£329, around AU$450) you’d fork out for the OnePlus 3 – but there’s another storage/price option with the OnePlus 3T.
The OnePlus 3T went on sale in the US on November 22, while Europe had to wait a few more days for its OnePlus 3T release date of November 28.
- Premium metal unibody looks and feels great
- Exactly the same design as OnePlus 3
We’re not going to spend too much time talking about the design of the OnePlus 3T. Why? Because it’s identical to the OnePlus 3, and we mean identical.
Same weight (158g), same size (152.7 x 74.7 x 7.35mm), same aluminum uni-body, same rear camera protrusion, same factory fitted (but removable) screen protector…. you get the picture.
OnePlus introduced a limited edition color for the 128GB model more recently, but the Midnight Black hue has sold out is most regions – so you’ll be lucky to get hold of it now.
The OnePlus 3T is still a premium-looking and feeling device, which doesn’t look out of place alongside the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, iPhone 7 Plus and LG G5.
Considering the OnePlus 3T is comfortably cheaper than all of these handsets though, it’s still rather impressive.
- 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display
- Great for everything from emails to gaming
In the run-up to the OnePlus 3T launch there were several reports suggesting the new phone would drop the AMOLED screen technology used on the OnePlus 3 in favor of a LCD screen – luckily that didn’t happen.
What that means is text, images and video are clear and smooth – although the display lacks the supreme clarity of the QHD-toting LG G6 and Galaxy S8.
