Prolific tipster Roland Quandt has posted OnePlus 6T images front and back confirming the device will have more display real estate compared to the predecessor.
However, if OnePlus is able to bundle some of these accessories with the upcoming flagship, it will make the smartphone deal a whole lot sweeter for a lot of customers. We know what OnePlus is and does at this point.
Some specs for the 6T have already been revealed - besides the in-display fingerprint sensor, we know that the phone will (sadly) have no headphone jack, for example.
While Lau says that OnePlus is investigating the best way to implement wireless charging into its smartphone lineup, it has yet to find a way to get that technology to match the Dash Charging feature. More of a downgrade than upgrade, the trade-off is defended by the company as a must to utilise the space for new hardware, or maybe a bigger battery. "The most hard task in the day-to-day is... finding a balance in what's ultimately going to be part of the end product and what has to be said "No" to". The screen is off, and it's dark, but the text makes reference to the in-screen fingerprint reader.
As part of its marketing program, OnePlus has opened up The Lab - as it has done with previous models of its phones.
"We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action". Notably, these are the same colours in which the OnePlus 6 had debuted.
Elsewhere, not too much is known about the OnePlus 6T. As opposed to the OnePlus 6's longer notch.
Finally, OnePlus will launch the device on 17th October in India and reveal all the specifications and features then.
"We're working hard on this", the exec said.
"This has been one of the most hard decisions for us to make", said Lau.
During an interview with CNET, Lau talked about the OnePlus 6T in detail. That's not necessarily a bad move, considering that the cost would be passed on to the buyer. With that said, the phone should survive a sink drop or some splashing, just don't go swimming with it.
Lau still argued that prices don't dictate the end product, but it's pretty clear that's not entirely so - at least not for a company that's still pricing its flagships at just over half of what the latest iPhone or Galaxy Note phones cost.
Also, OnePlus has confirmed that the upcoming device will not have a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Based on reliable reports we have gathered so far, it is expected to come with Android Oreo OS, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core and come in multiple RAM + storage configuration-6GB RAM+64GB storage, 8GB RAM+128GB storage and 8GB RAM+256GB storage.
OnePlus will launch the new OnePlus 6T smartphone on October 17th.
