OnePlus 6T launched: Here are the specifications and price in India

Posted October 31, 2018

The OnePlus 6T has a significantly bigger battery than the OnePlus 6. The cult smartphone brand has fans and a level of loyalty that other Android brands tend to lack, and T-Mobile wants to bring those fans onto its network-hopefully, with the same level of loyalty.

The overall shape of the OnePlus 6T is familiar with its rounded corners but it's much thinner and lighter than you might expect.

The device will ship with a 6.4-inch 2340-by-1080 AMOLED display that is going to offer a stunning and visually attractive experience.

In-display fingerprint reader. In a first for a smartphone sold in the US, the OnePlus 6T features an in-display fingerprint reader that looks fast, secure, and intuitive.

The OnePlus 6T has a single speaker placed at the base, next to the USB Type C connector.

This OnePlus phone comes with "Screen Unlock", that unlocks the device through the in-display fingerprint sensor, and replaces the conventional rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. That's not a bad thing, though, as the OP6 had pretty high-end features.

The device will come in 6GB RAM/128GB storage, 8GB RAM/128GB storage variants along with a top end version of 8GB RAM/256GB storage.

The camera hardware is unchanged - a dual sensor (20MP+16MP) set-up, both with f/1.7 aperture. However, there is a new mode for improving low-light performance when taking photos at night, and an also-new "Studio Lighting" feature works to analyse and attenuate lighting when taking portraits. Which also means that OnePlus 6 might be the last OnePlus phone to have a 3.5mm jack.

The company's spokesperson told me that the predecessor OnePlus 6 sold one million units in just 22 days. It also includes support for features like 256 QAM and 4×4 MIMO.

In terms of connectivity, OnePlus proudly highlights that the OnePlus 6T supports 42 global LTE bands along with 4×4 MIMO and Cat.16 LTE. But this is only valid during the preview sale on November 1 via Amazon India.

When it comes to the burn test, the screen of the OnePlus 6T withstood an open flame for about 30 seconds before the pixels became completely dead. The OnePlus 6T will be available in the United States as a T-Mobile exclusive. OnePlus 6T will ship with OxygenOS 9 which runs on top of Android Pie and will have all the new gestures.

The pricing for the phone starts at £499 for the 6GB/128GB Mirror Black and goes up to £529 for the 8GB/128GB Mirror Black/Midnight Black variations and then £579 for the 8GB/256GB Midnight Black model.

In a press release, T-Mobile called OnePlus' offerings "superphones packed with flagship specs at a fraction of the flagship price".

And the Chinese tech giant emphasised the new feature would be coming to the OnePlus 6 "later this week".
