OnePlus is expected to launch an upgraded variant of its OnePlus 3 smartphone in December this year. The new OnePlus 3T smartphone is likely to sport a new processor and latest version of Android operating system. Now, a new report suggests that the OnePlus 3T will be more expensive than the OnePlus 3.

As per recent reports, the OnePlus 3T will be powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor [OnePlus 3 features Snapdragon 820 SoC]. The new processor is said to offer 10 percent improvement in overall performance. Additionally, it is expected to run the Android 7.0 Nougat with Oxygen OS [OnePlus 3 runs Android 6.0.1 OS]. The OnePlus 3T is likely to sport the same design and build as the OnePlus 3.
