OnePlus to discontinue sales of the OnePlus 3T

OnePlus 5
OnePlus are set to end official sales of the highly successful OnePlus 3T, a move that will anger fans of the OEM. The 3T was released in December.

Chinese manufacturers, OnePlus, have rightfully earned a reputation for the ease with which they abandon support for their devices. The company has made no attempts at correcting public perception, with their latest move only serving to reinforce the notion. The company has made known its intentions to discontinue official sales of the OnePlus 3T, a device that was released just six months ago, in November 2016.

"This is the last call to buy the OnePlus 3T before stock runs out,” a staff of the company posted  “Only a few devices are left in our warehouse, so purchase yours before time runs out at onepl.us/3T."

There are precedents for this, with OnePlus dropping the OnePlus 2 after it flopped, and the OnePlus 3 as soon as the 3T was announced. Nonchalant, some would call it.

On the flip side, this move means we’re getting closer to the release of the new OnePlus 5, a device that has generated quite a bit of noise recently.

Specifications of the OnePlus 5 have been all but confirmed at this point, with the device expected to sport a 5.5” AMOLED FHD display, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage memory, Corning Gorilla Glass 4, and a 3400mAh battery.

While OnePlus are discontinuing production and sales of the 3T, there has been no indication that they will be withdrawing development support for the device.
