The OnePlus 3T just killed the OnePlus 3

Wave goodbye to the cheaper OnePlus

The OnePlus 3T has arrived, but in the process it's managed to kill the original OnePlus 3.

That's not necessarily a bad thing, as the 3T boasts a bigger battery, better selfie snapper and a more powerful processor – that is until you look the price.

At $439 (£399, around AU$580) the OnPlus 3T is $40 (£70) more expensive than its now-discontinued sibling, which was a mere six months into its life. It's not a huge price jump, but it's sure to raise some eyebrows.

Six and out

For those looking to dive into the world of OnePlus, you'll be parting with a little extra cash now – but don't let that get you down too much. 

The OnePlus 3T still looks to be great value for money with a 5.5-inch full HD display, Snapdragon 821 processor, 6GB of RAM, 16MP rear camera, 16MP front snapper and a 3,400mAh battery.
