OnePlus 6T official with in-screen fingerprint scanner, Android Pie

OnePlus 6T Launch T Mobile US Carrier Partnership Expected to Be Announced

The OnePlus 6T is officially announced and it's essentially an updated bigger brother of the previous OnePlus 6.

First things first, the OnePlus 6T gets a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen, which is bigger than the 6.2-inch dimensions on the OnePlus 6.

Although the OnePlus 6T has suffered - or benefited from, depending on you look at it - multiple leaks to date, we're now getting some new and interesting information about the device from OnePlus's rescheduled hardware announcement.

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. The OnePlus flagship smartphone will be available in two colors or rather texture options: Mirror Black with a glossy finish, and Midnight Black with a sandstone matte finish. "It is a good time for us".

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau opened the event with a speech in full English for the first time. Also, if you finance the device from T-Mobile, you will be unable to unlock the bootloader until you pay off the device. The camera modules on OnePlus 6T are expected to be the same as the OnePlus 6 - a 16MP and a 20MP sensor at the back and a 16MP shooter at the front. There have been some improvements on the software side, though, with OnePlus equipping the handset with souped-up AI features, an enhanced Portrait Mode and better low-light shooting capabilities.

The OnePlus 6T packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor.

The OnePlus 6T has a slightly larger battery than its predecessor, but also includes the same fast-charge system, formerly known as Dash Charge before a trademark dispute, which has proven to be one of the fastest charging systems on the market.

OnePlus is just one of the many smartphone vendors out there committed to launching 5G smartphones next year. The notch has become smaller, the fingerprint sensor has disappeared from the back and has been integrated into the display, and the headphone jack - still desired by some, has been completely removed.

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. OnePlus 6T price and India launch (rumoured) Though a number of specs and features about the OnePlus 6T are already out in open, the price of the commodity still unknown.

OnePlus has also tied up with Reliance Jio to offer instant cashback of Rs 5,400 in the form of 36 vouchers worth Rs 150 each, which can be used on subsequent recharges of Rs 299.

The phone no longer has a headphone socket, instead relying on its USB-C port and the included 3.5mm adapter for headphone support. While the OnePlus 6 is still a great value for money, the OnePlus 6T brings some extras to offer with minor compromises. To compensate for the increase, OnePlus has doubled the non-expandable storage in the cheapest model to 128GB.
