Up until yesterday, the OnePlus 3 was the latest and most current smartphone from OnePlus. While that is still the case if you are planning on buying a OnePlus smartphone today, that will not be the case come next week when the very newest OnePlus smartphone, the OnePlus 3T goes on sale in the US on November 22. The OnePlus 3T was announced yesterday and in most respects seems to be largely the same smartphone as the OnePlus 3. However, they do come with some notable differences. One of those differences being the processor which has been upgraded to the Snapdragon 821 and the other being, the OnePlus 3T comes with a greater mAh capacity, to offer owners a longer-lasting level of battery life.
Although, when it comes to the OnePlus 3 in general, battery life has always been one of the smartphone’s best selling features. Not so much in terms of how long the battery will last you in between charging, but how quickly the OnePlus 3 can be charged thanks to the use of the company’s own fast charging solution, Dash Charge. A feature which is also present with the OnePlus 3T and when coupled with the greater battery capacity of the newer model, should mean the OnePlus 3T is a good device for those who want a long-lasting and quicker-charging smartphone.
To highlight the charging speed of the OnePlus 3T, OnePlus has today released a new comparison video which sees the OnePlus 3T going up against another very popular and new smartphone, the Pixel XL from Google. Which in many respects seems like a fair comparison, as the new OnePlus 3T comes packing a 3,400 mAh battery and the Pixel XL comes packing a slighter greater 3,450 mAh battery. Needless to say, at this is a OnePlus promotional video - it should not be too much of a surprise to learn that the OnePlus 3T proves to be the faster charging device. In terms of the numbers, the OnePlus 3T managed to fully recharge in one hour and thirty minutes, while the Pixel XL only hit a full charge after two hours and one minute.
