If you have been waiting for a long for the release of OnePlus 3T’s replacement version with 128 GB if only so that you could buy it then you are late. The thing is that the online store of the manufacturer has already hung the poster of the mobile with the largest storage capacity, a version that’s stock has been very irregular since its launch. What are the reasons behind this sudden drop you ask? Or are you also left wondering on whether or not the imminent presentation of the OnePlus 5 has anything to do with this decision?
OnePlus is one of those companies that share the philosophy of Google, which provides that their smartphones do not have a slot for external microSD memory cards. Remember that Mountain View does not include support for this type of memory arguing that the experience of using the system is compromised. For this reason, OnePlus put in its most basic version of the OnePlus 3T an internal memory chip with 64 GB capacity. Additionally, it also launched a second version, the OnePlus 3T with 128 GB, especially indicated for those that could demand superior storage capacity.
No Trace of 128GB OnePlus 3T
In fact, OnePlus 3T was placed as an extremely interesting purchase since its price was only an increase of around $ 45 or around 40 Euros compared to the $ 480 or 439 Euros of OnePlus 3T with 64 GB. However, since its launch the stock of the larger capacity version has been very scarce and so it has been unavailable for long periods of time.
OnePlus 3T with 128 GB discontinued in the OnePlus store
If you had followed closely the availability of OnePlus 3T with 128 GB for your future acquisition then you will verify to what we subscribe as well. However, today there is worse news for you as this version will not return to the online store of the manufacturer. You can verify this by selecting it on the web and see how it is not possible to continue with the purchase process and now there also appears a section which specifies that the product has been discontinued, discontinued.
At the moment, there is no official statement that allows us to clarify the reason why the OnePlus 3T 128 GB is no longer available permanently. In the first instance, the rumors have pointed to the next presentation of the OnePlus 5. This has been confirmed by the CEO himself. However, everything points to other reasons and the main focus is on the unavailability of the memory module used to manufacture the OnePlus 3T 128 GB.
OnePlus 3T 128GB UFS 2.0 memory technology
The thing is that the memory chip used with Samsung UFS 2.0 technology now appears on the website of the semiconductor manufacturer with an EOL reference. The initials that correspond to End-of-life or, what is the same as saying that it is no longer manufactured in Samsung’s production chain.
So, in the absence of an official statement from the company, the main reason for the non-availability of OnePlus 3T 128GB points directly to this decline made by Samsung.
