In mid-2016 OnePlus unveiled its latest flagship, the OnePlus 3, to much fanfare. At just $399 it offered nearly everything you would expect to get from a phone costing several hundred dollars more, while in some cases giving you a better experience than those high-end phones. The OnePlus 3 offered a solid all-aluminum build, Snapdragon 820 processor, a massive 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage with an above-average screen and camera.

Just six months later, OnePlus upped the game by releasing a mid-cycle bump called the OnePlus 3T. The new model completely replaces the original OnePlus 3, as it is near-identical in most ways. It has the same external hardware design (aside from a new color) and core features, but has a new Snapdragon 821 processor, larger 3400 mAh battery and faster software. It is still compatible with previous OnePlus 3 accessories, including Dash Charge chargers.

The original OnePlus 3 will continue to receive software updates at the exact same time as the OnePlus 3T, including a bump to Android 7.0 Nougat by the end of 2016.
