OnePlus is gearing up for the launch of its new flagship phone, OnePlus 6T. The phone is expected to come in midnight black and mirror black colour options, and a white and red colour options will be added later. All in all, the OnePlus 6T is an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 6 with its main USP being its on-display fingerprint sensor. Unlike some of its competitors who prefer secrecy leading up to an unveiling, OnePlus has been rather forthcoming with details regarding its new handset.
The latest teaser features the images of two devices which look very similar to the OnePlus 6.
We'll know all about what OnePlus has to offer in the 6T when it's unveiled later this month.
Talking about sizes, the battery is bigger on the OnePlus 6T as well, now boasting a 3700mAh cell. However, while the company is taking measures to ensure proper wireless charging, Lau's response in the CNET article about whether the OnePlus 6T has an official IP rating is a wordier version of "it's good enough now without an official rating". He acknowledged the in-display fingerprint reader and that it might have been partly at fault for the phone not having a headphone jack. Lastly, a USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter commanding a price of €8.95 will also be launched but it will also be shipped along with all the units of the OnePlus 6T. OnePlus' sister company, Vivo, has been offering this technology in some of its premium models, such as the Vivo X21, Vivo Nex and the Vivo V11 Pro.
Given that Lau touched on the phone's only features that OnePlus could reasonably change from OnePlus 6, including the fingerprint sensor, headphone jack, battery charging, and IP rating, we now know nearly everything there is to know about the upcoming OnePlus 6T. Also, on the software front, the OnePlus 6T is expected to boot Android 9 Pie out of the box. Under the hood, the smartphone is expected to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 6GB/8GB RAM and 64GB/256GB of internal storage.
