As OnePlus 6T comes with a few new features like in-display fingerprint sensor and a base variant with 128GB of storage, the device is expected to have higher price than the OnePlus 6. T-Mobile is also offering a $300 trade-in on other devices when users opt for OnePlus 6T. For example, the fingerprint sensor in the display.
Next is a feature that's pretty simple, but still nice: a new About Phone screen. If you want to get your hands on one, you've come to the right place. This particular improvement will also be available on the OnePlus 6.
The dual-camera setup at the back includes 16-megapixel + 20-megapixel sensors for great photos.
Now that the OnePlus 6T has been introduced, the company is allowing those with the OnePlus 6 to grab some of the features offered on the latest OnePlus model.
On Monday, T-Mobile's flagship store in Times Square saw a larger crowd of people waiting to buy the OnePlus 6T than it did for the new iPhones, a T-Mobile employee told me at the store on Monday.
Cristiano Amon, Qualcomm's president, was also present at the Q&A session, saying that companies like OnePlus will be "leading in bringing 5G technologies", to the market.
The company now provides a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter in the box.
All looks good so far, what about the phone itself-what's so compelling about the OnePlus 6Tto consider it over the OnePlus 6? That's all thanks to a new feature called Smart Boost - long story short, the phone is created to figure out what apps and games you use the most and will load some assets directly into RAM in anticipation of you actually doing your thing. There's also an enhanced "Do Not Disturb" mode, game mode, smart boost, new shortcuts for toggling between recently used apps and more.
To accommodate a bigger battery, OnePlus has ditched the 3.5mm jack this time.
Indeed, the OnePlus 6T is available to buy from T-Mobile stores nationwide and online starting November 1, making it the first smartphone from OnePlus that's sold in a USA carrier store. The company says it's worked hard on the camera software to improve low-light photography and has dubbed the feature Night Mode.
Pricing starts at just $549 for a model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The bottom bezel appears to be smaller as well, but this time around OnePlus chose to ditch the 3.5mm audio jack. And two major tick-list items are absent too, IP67 waterproofing and Qi wireless charging.
The OnePlus 6T comes with a Corning Gorilla Glas 6 protection on top of the display which only sees minor scratch at a level 6 and deeper ones at level 7 of the Mohs' scale.
