Last month, OnePlus made the big league by getting the OnePlus 3 sold on the high-street. Today, O2 has announced it will be exclusively stocking the upgraded OnePlus 3T.

3t_front_facing_forwardThe phone, which looks essentially identical, has a few key upgrades that include;

  • 3,400mAh battery (a 13% increase).
  • New 128GB storage option.
  • Upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC.
  • Upgraded selfie-camera, up from 8 to 16-megapixels, while the rear camera has upgraded electronic image stabilisation.
  • Latest version of Oxygen OS (sadly, still based on Android Marshmallow for now).

Perhaps not a great deal, but let’s not forget just how powerful the original OnePlus 3 was. Think of it more like a mid-life refresh that’s commonplace in the motor industry.

The handset, also available to buy directly from OnePlus on a SIM-free basis, comes in two colours and two storage capacities; 64GB and 128GB.

The SIM-free prices will be £399 for the 64GB model and £439 for the 128GB model (making the latter almost a no-brainer for twice the storage).

O2 customers will be able to pre-order the OnePlus 3T from tomorrow, 17th November. In addition, ahead of the release date, O2 will have a pop-up event at its (134) Oxford Street store at 3.02 on Thursday 24th November.

Plans on O2 start at £31 per month, offering between 500MB and 20GB data.

OnePlus fans can also go along to the official website to see a load of new OnePlus branded gear (including bags and T-shirts) and accessories, including the OnePlus Bullets Earphones (V2).

  1. Looks like a good phone, as long as you don’t want to use it N America. According to the specs, the Europe/Asia model (which is presumably why will be available in the UK) will only support LTE bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, & 20. Of those, I think only band 5 is in use in N America (850 Mhz).

    Why do these manufacturers do this? – the iPhone 7 and the Galaxy S7, to take a couple of premium examples, cover pretty much all bands worldwide. But not these phones from other manufacturers. At least, not as far as I can see.
