There are numerous reports already that Chinese smartphone company OnePlus will launch another variant of its 2016’s flagship OnePlus 3. Some fresh rumours are here that this new variant might be named OnePlus 3T, featuring a different processor. Earlier, there were speculations that it will be called either OnePlus 3S or OnePlus 3 Plus. A OnePlus device with the model number A3010 has already been certified in China. We expect that it’s the same device that OnePlus is preparing to launch globally very soon.
This rumored OnePlus phone may become official in coming weeks and feature similar or upgraded Optic AMOLED display that was first seen on the OnePlus 3. Last week, there were headlines that the company would opt for a non-AMOLED panel due to the shortage of AMOLED panels. However, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei recently confirmed that the company will stick to Optic AMOLED display for this upcoming OnePlus phone.
OnePlus will be staying with Optic AMOLED displays for the foreseeable future.
