It's also the first OnePlus phone to have an in-display fingerprint sensor touted as the "Screen Unlock".
The device comes with premium features like in-display fingerprint scanner, 6.41-inch AMOLED display, 2340 x 1080 px screen resolution, and 3,700 mAh battery.
At an event that took place in NY on 29 October, OnePlus took to the stage to show off a fingerprint sensor built in to the 6T's display and a teeny tiny notch to allow more room for the screen.
The phone adds an under-glass fingerprint sensor, the second to reach the United Kingdom market after the (much more expensive) Huawei Mate 20 Pro. While the OnePlus 6 ships with a smaller 3300mAh battery, the OnePlus 6T now thrives on a 3700mAh unit. For better and worse, the OnePlus 6T - just like the OnePlus 6 - doesn't include wireless charging.
And the processor is still the superfast Snapdragon 845 chipset, but the OS will be the latest Android 9 Pie. For selfies, it gets a similar 16MP f/2.0 front facing camera that supports Portrait Mode. It also comes with a 16+20MP f/1.7 dual rear camera, which is not an improvement over the OnePlus 6.
Following the footsteps of Apple, OnePlus too has eliminated the 3.5mm headphone jack, which may put off enthusiasts. There are also more than 500 targeted optimizations made in this new version of OxygenOS to help make things smoother and faster.
T-Mobile said the OnePlus 6T smartphone would launch exclusively at the carrier's stores on November 1 with a starting price of $549, the first time a OnePlus handset has been sold through a U.S. wireless provider - and a deal that the firm's larger rivals such as Huawei could not pull off. There's also 802.11ac 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 support, as befits any self-respecting flagship phone these days. While the launch is slated on 30th Oct in India, here's the first look on the new OnePlus 6T.
What's the price of a OnePlus 6T phone? Here is how to do the pre-booking of the smartphone on Amazon India The major brand, OnePlus has already started taking pre-orders for the upcoming OnePlus 6T on Amazon India.
Prices are €549 for the 6GB/128GB model, €579 for the 8GB/128GB model and €629 for the 8GB/256GB model. Just like the OnePlus 6, you can buy the OnePlus 6T straight from OnePlus.com if you're in the United States.
In terms of colours, there's a choice of either Mirror Black or Midnight Black - basically shiny or matte. However, this exclusive deal doesn't seem to come without compromises and USA customers who might want to use the latest flagship on other networks besides T-Mobile's one are still left with only one option - buying the unlocked variant outright at the price of $549, $579, or $629, depending on their desired memory configuration.
Sort of. There's a significant list of smartphones users can trade in for approximately $300 in credit toward a OnePlus 6T.
