The OnePlus team is allegedly working on an upgraded version of OnePlus 3 called "OnePlus 3T", which is expected to be a slightly faster version of its predecessor. The minor hardware revision is estimated to cost OnePlus team roughly around $80 more than the OnePlus 3 production expenses.

The OnePlus 3T is rumoured to incorporate the latest Snapdragon 821 SoC as a minor upgrade over the Snapdragon 820 chip found in the OnePlus 3. It must be noted that the Google Pixel phones are currently running on the same processor chip as the OnePlus 3T.

For a price difference of $80, we could expect a few more enhanced features and improvements for the OnePlus 3T over its predecessor, especially along the lines of full HD (1080p) display support with higher screen resolution than the older OnePlus models.

It is now confirmed that the OnePlus phone with model number A3010 was recently spotted passing through the Chinese regulators for final approval ahead of its release. Although there is no official word on the launch window for the new OnePlus smartphone, it could be announced anytime soon.

As Evan Blass aka @evleaks reports, the OnePlus 3T phone could cost around $479 or Rs. 30,000 especially considering the fact that it costs $80 more than OnePlus 3's current price of $399.
