OnePlus 3T 128GB Variant Discontinued Permanently; OnePlus 5 With Snapdragon 835 Spotted on Geekbench

The internet is abuzz with the leaks and rumours about the OnePlus’s next flagship killer phone, the OnePlus 5. Yesterday, OnePlus officially teased the smartphone as ‘Hello 5,’ and today, the firm has discontinued the 128GB variant of the popular OnePlus 3T.

OnePlus has officially announced that it is discontinuing the product and wants to focus on just ‘one flagship device’ at a time. This suggests that the launch of much-anticipated OnePlus 5 is around the corner.

OnePlus’s decision of pulling out the best selling model may hurt many, but speculations claim that South Korean smartphone giant, Samsung has taken the UFS 2.0 storage with 128GB capacity out of production, which could also be a possible reason for discontinuing the product.

However, OnePlus is still selling the 64GB variant of the OnePlus 3T for the same price tag of Rs. 29,999 in India and $439 in other countries. Interestingly, Amazon India has removed the product listing of 128GB variant as well along with the Matte Black variant. The discontinuation news can only be seen when you try to purchase the phone via OnePlus’s official store in India (and in other countries).

So far, OnePlus has confirmed the name of its upcoming flagship phone which will be called as the OnePlus 5. Going by the launch iteration of the company, the OnePlus 5 launch could happen in June in most of the important countries.

OnePlus has done a tremendous job by not allowing the leaks to reveal about its upcoming phone until now. There are few leaks about the phone which purportedly claim that the OnePlus 5 will come with a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, and Adreno 540 GPU.

As seen on the OnePlus 3T, the upcoming phone will also come in two storage variants – 64GB and 128GB with no support for expandable storage. The device is said to feature dual camera setup at the back, but a recent report claimed it would have four cameras on the whole – two at front and two at the back. The OnePlus 5 could be backed by a 3600mAh battery and will be laden by Android 7.0 Nougat based Oxygen OS with various new features.

Just now, the Geekbench scores of the device have surfaced online, thanks to GSMArena. The OnePlus 5 with the model number A5000 has recorded an insane score of 1963 single-core score and multi-core score of 6687. These scores are more than what Samsung Galaxy S8 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium have achieved considering that the Snapdragon 835 SoC powers both these phones as well.
