OnePlus Releases the Device Trees and Kernel Sources for the OnePlus 3T
After all of the rumors about a new version of the OnePlus 3, the company finally made the official announcement about it yesterday. We learned the OnePlus 3T would be using an upgraded SoC, a bigger battery, an improved front-facing camera, sapphire glass protecting the rear camera, and will be available with 128GB of internal storage. That’s a lot different from the rumors we heard about it before launch, and its poised to be the best smartphone of 2016.
Mario published a detailed write-up about the philosophy of the OnePlus 3T, and what it means going forward. While OnePlus believes the OnePlus 3 and the 3T are “two versions of the same phone,” this launch has made some people rather upset. There are some OnePlus 3 owners who feel slighted by OnePlus as they no longer have the best smartphone the company offers. Then there are some developers who feel this will only fragment the development scene even more.
OnePlus released the device trees and kernel sources for the 3 at launch. The company has promised a way to improve camera quality on custom ROMs, and developers are still waiting for this, but OnePlus has been very kind to the developer community when compared to some OEMs out there. So to help developers get a jump on their work for the upcoming OnePlus 3T, they have just released device trees and kernel sources before the smartphone has even been launched.
We’re expecting the OnePlus 3T to launch on November 22nd with a starting price of $440. So if the community developers feel up to the task, they can have their custom ROM or custom kernel released before it is made available to the public. You can find the GitHub page for OnePlus right here, and be sure to check out the XDA forum we created for the new device a few days ago.Source: OnePlus
