A lot of fans know that the recently confirmed and unveiled OnePlus 3T handset from Chinese mobile manufacturer OnePlus is going to be priced a little bit higher compared to its current model handset, the OnePlus 3.

However, it seems like the pricing for it might actually differ in each region as new rumors have suggested that its price tag might be cheaper in China than in the international market.

OnePlus has previously revealed that the OnePlus 3T handset will carry a price tag of $439 for its 64 GB built-in memory variant and a $479 tag for the 128 GB variant, GSM Arena reported.

In Europe, though, the handset is said to be worth €439 and €479 for the 64 GB and 128 GB variants, respectively.

Meanwhile, in China, word has it that the phone will only cost around ¥2,799 for the 64 GB variant while the 128 GB model will be worth ¥3,299, according to the report from GizmoChina. When converted into U.S. dollars, the price for the 64 GB is $406 while the bigger variant is priced at $478. There is a circulating rumor in the region saying that the latter version's price could still go down to ¥3,199 ($464).

It should be noted that this is just based on pure rumors and that the OnePlus has yet to officially release the final pricing for the OnePlus 3T handset in China. 

As for its specifications, the OnePlus 3T is confirmed to come with a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen capable of producing Full HD, 1080p, display resolution. Under its hood, fans can see an upgraded Qualcomm System on Chip (SoC), the Snapdragon 821, and it will be supported by 6 GB of RAM.

In terms of the operating system, though, some thought that the OnePlus 3T would run Google's latest OS version — the Android 7.0 Nougat — right out of the box. But as it turns out, it will only come with the 6.0 Marshmallow build. However, the beta for its next-generation upgrade is now set to roll out sometime in December.
