OnePlus’ latest flagship phone, the OnePlus 3T has finally arrived in Australia, albeit through grey import via online reseller Kogan for $699.
The phone which is available in Gunmetal Grey packs a whopping 6GB of RAM and is paired with a QualcommSnapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.35 GHz. The phone also offers 64GB of onboard storage, though unfortunately there’s no microSD card slot on the phone to expand if you need it. The phone packs a 5.5″ FullHD (1920×1080) display and comes with a decently sized 3,400mAh battery to keep you going all day.
OnePlus has done a decent job with the cameras on the phone, including a 16MP sensor on both the front and rear. OnePlus is aiming to do away with shaky cam on the phone with Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) 2.0 included on the cameras, which is augmented on the rear with Optical Image Stabilisation.
Running their own version of Android Nougat (Oxygen OS 3.5), they’ve added their own optimisations on top of the stock Android experience.
As far as Australian support for bands goes, the OnePlus 3T isn’t quite perfect, missing the all important Band 28 (700MHz) support for Optus and Telstra customers that allows for great coverage in buildings. It does cover the Band 3 (1800Mhz) network so 4G is available, it’s just not the optimal experience you’ll get with handsets designed for our market, though Vodafone customers have Band 5 (850MHz) support, so there’s that.
If you’re wanting a OnePlus 3T they’re ready to go for $699 from Kogan, though expect to pay an additional delivery fee of almost $23 on top. It’s over on Kogan now if you want to check it out.
