OnePlus 3T with 128GB in gunmetal colour option has not been discontinued by the company, even as it is getting ready for the launch of OnePlus 5. OnePlus has given a statement on the 3T stock, even though the website of OnePlus still says ‘Discontinued’ for the 128GB Gunmetal colour option.
The company told us, “We will continue providing OnePlus 3T 128 GB Gunmetal to the market in the future. People who want to get the device can wait for next wave of inventory. Currently for Gunmetal lovers, they can still purchase 64GB variant. And Midnight Black 3T, as a limited edition, has been sold out.”
The soft gold and gunmetal colour in 64GB are still available for purchase on the OnePlus Store. On Amazon India, OnePlus 3T is again available only in 64GB for these two colour options. The OnePlus 3T midnight black edition is no longer listed on the Amazon India website either.
This was a limited edition smartphone and as the company confirmed it is now out of stock. OnePlus 3 is still listed on Amazon India, for the 64GB version which is priced at Rs 27,999.
OnePlus has confirmed that its next flagship smartphone will be launching this summer, and the device is called OnePlus 5. According to a statement from OnePlus, the new phone is inspired by former NBA player Robert Horry, and apparently Horry’s number five jersey is the reason why this phone is called OnePlus 5.
On the specifications front, OnePlus 5 is expected to feature the Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB RAM though some reports claim the company will add 8GB RAM to this phone. The other highlight will be the dual rear camera set up, and some leaks claim at 23MP rear camera might be on the cards, but that looks unlikely. Leaked sample of images from OnePlus 5 were also shared on Weibo earlier.
OnePlus 5 will likely feature a bigger 3600 mAh battery, coupled with Dash Charge 2.0, according to reports. For those looking to buy a OnePlus smartphone, remember that a ‘summer launch’ means OnePlus 5 could be out in India by July or early August. The OnePlus 3T prices might drop just ahead of the new phone’s launch, so it is best to wait if you are planning to get a new device.
