OnePlus’ officially brought the OnePlus 3T to India and will begin selling the handset via Amazon starting from December 14 at 12:01 am. The phone will be available in a 64GB variant at Rs 29999 and 128GB one at Rs 34999.
The price tags easily distinguish the OnePlus 3T as the company’s most costly phone, pushing it towards the premium market sector. The brand had previously confirmed that it would continue selling the original Rs 27999 OnePlus 3 in India. It had notably ended sales of the latter in markets like the US and Europe.
Interestingly, OnePlus plans to manufacture the OnePlus 3T in India starting from January 2017. The new device acts more or less as an enhanced version of its predecessor, sticking to the same overall design philosophy while improving hardware specs on the inside.
The most notable promotions comes in the form of a faster Snapdragon 821 processor and 16MP selfie camera. There’s also a bigger 3400mAh battery equipped with the brand’s Dash Charge technology to keep the phone running for an entire day after just 30 minutes of refueling.
