The device, which is rumored to be a replacement for the OnePlus 3, was earlier called the OnePlus 3S. Now the name OnePlus 3T has surfaced on Chinese social network Weibo. The “T” is rumored to stand for "Turbo."
The revelation came after a OnePlus designer leaked the information on Weibo in a post Friday, which has since been deleted.
The rumored device with model number A3010 received a 3C certification in China last week.
The company’s CEO Carl Pei tweeted on Oct. 13 that the company will retain the optic AMOLED technology instead of LCD. The smartphone is expected to come with a Snapdragon 821 processor instead of the Snapdragon 820 processor on the current flagship.
Other rumored specifications include:
- 6GB LPDDR4 RAM
- 64GB built-in memory
- Sony IMX298 sensor
- 8-megapixel rear camera
- Fingerprint sensor
- 4G VoLTE
- USB-Type C
- 3000 mAh battery
- Dash Charge
- Android 7.0 — Nougat OS
The company told Android Authority last week that it is still producing the OnePlus 3 due to heavy demand. The company in fact suspended its sales in Europe and Hong Kong for the August-September period as it said it needed to “give inventory time to replenish.” The OnePlus 3 launched in the U.S. in June.
