Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is said to be working on a new flagship device dubbed OnePlus 3T, the upgraded version of OnePlus 3. The company has not officially revealed specs of the upcoming smartphone, but Qualcomm has clued consumers in on the processor.
Word of the OnePlus 3T has been going around for quite some time, and the handset was also spotted in the wild. The rumor mill has been churning out information on the OnePlus 3T regularly, but this time it seems that Qualcomm has confirmed a vital spec of OnePlus's next device in its tweet.

OnePlus 3T Design
The OnePlus 3T is said to borrow the same design aspects as those on the OnePlus 3. The OnePlus 3T is expected to feature an all-metal design and have the buttons and camera sensors at the same position as found on the OnePlus 3.
Rumored OnePlus 3T Specs
Some rumors point that the OnePlus 3T would feature a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED screen but other rumors suggest that the device could come with an LCD screen.
However, a previous Tech Times report noted that Carl Pei, the cofounder of OnePlus, stated that Optic AMOLED is the preferred screen for the company's smartphones in the near term. Therefore, customers can expect to see an Optic AMOLED screen instead of an LCD screen in the OnePlus 3T.
The rumored phone is said to include 6 GB of RAM and it could be available in 64 GB and 128 GB internal storage options.
A 3,000 mAh battery, fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C support and water resistance are some of the other rumored specs of the OnePlus 3T.
Estimated Launch Date Of The OnePlus 3T
Latest rumors suggest that the OnePlus 3T could launch on Nov. 14. It should be noted that the OnePlus 3T is an upgraded version and not the successor of the OnePlus 3.
OnePlus is expected to launch OnePlus 3's successor, the OnePlus 4,in mid-2017, which means that it will make sense for the company to announce the OnePlus 3T sooner than later.
Speculated Price Of The OnePlus 3T
At a price tag of $399, the OnePlus 3 is currently one of the best smartphones under $500. However, an upgraded device means customers may have to pay extra. Rumors suggest that the OnePlus 3T will cost $479 at launch.
