The OnePlus 3T that will be launched in the next few weeks will also feature the same or improved Optic AMOLED display which was first seen on OnePlus 3. There are also few rumors that upcoming OnePlus device is said to opt for a non-AMOLED panel as there is a severe shortage of AMOLED panels.

The device is said to run on Oxygen OS based on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat opt of the box. Under the hood, the Snapdragon 820 processor will be likely replaced with upgraded Snapdragon 821 SoC.
