OnePlus has confirmed it will launch Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 powered smartphone on 15 November. The company posted a tweet on its official Twitter handle with an official countdown format of “T-7” implying seven days to the launch. The company pointed out that the processor will be clocked at 2.35GHz, up from the factory default 2.15GHz. In contrast, Google Pixel XL comes with Snapdragon 821 clocked at 2.15GHz. It’s likely that the company will post one key component of specs every day heading to the launch to build up the excitement.
The 15-minute video clip posted on Twitter shows a stylised “T”, which could signify the alphabet from “OnePlus 3T”. The announcement will take place on 15 November 2016 at 1 PM EST which translates to 11:30 PM on Wednesday night. The event will be broadcasted live on the official Facebook page of OnePlus.
This comes right after Qualcomm announced that OnePlus is working on a device powered by Snapdragon 821 on its official Twitter handle. According to previous leaks, OnePlus 3T will come with an improved camera module with Sony IMX398, increased battery of 3300mAh and Android Nougat 7.0 out of the box. Also, the smartphone is expected to cost $80 morethan OnePlus 3 and offer a new 128GB storage option along with a black variant. The new smartphone makes sense for the company if it wants to compete with the upcoming smartphones with Snapdragon 821 instead of the ‘old’ and ‘outdated’ Snapdragon 820.
