#OnePlus3T #Snapdragon – OnePlus 3T launches 15 November and packs a Snapdragon 821 processor : From what we know so far, the upcoming phone will be named the OnePlus 3T and will be more powerful than the existing OnePlus 3 flagship phone.
It’s pricing may cross the £350 mark thanks to several modifications which include the new Snapdragon 821 processor and a new LCD display instead of an AMOLED one. As for the Snapdragon 821, it is a successor of the Snapdragon 820 launched earlier this year and already powers Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL handsets.
In terms of performance, it features thrice as fast peak upload speeds and 33% faster peak download speeds compared to the Snapdragon 810 thanks to a X12 LTE modem that offers download speeds of up to 600 Mbps.
At the same time, it also brings in 10% increase in performance over the Snapdragon 820 and the new Qualcomm® Hexagon™ 680 DSP facilitates improved performance and battery life. An exhaustive AnTuTu examination of Pixel or Pixel XL phones will reveal the real-life performance scores of the new processor.

The DSP, says Qualcomm, is “capable of generating photorealistic graphics for console-quality gaming and next-generation virtual reality apps.” Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 is, however, quite similar to the Snapdragon 820 in many respects.
