A day after its official unveiling in New York, OnePlus has launched its latest flagship - the OnePlus 6T - in India. The latest flagship comes as an incremental update over the OnePlus 6 with key changes in design, display, battery, and an all-new in-display fingerprint sensor. In India, the OnePlus 6T starts at Rs. 37,999 for the 6GB/128GB variant. Here's everything to know.
OnePlus 6T: At a glance
OnePlus 6T features a downsized waterdrop-like notched display with a marginally slimmer bottom bezel as seen on the OnePlus 6, to boast an increased screen-to-body ratio of 86%. With the new notch, the notification LED light has been killed. On the rear, there's a dual-camera setup housed in a glass panel but no dedicated scanner - thanks to the all-new in-display fingerprint sensor.
OnePlus's biggest-ever display protected by Corning's toughest glass available
OnePlus 6T, thanks to the new notch, sports a bigger 6.41-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340pixels) AMOLED display, a taller aspect ratio of 19.5:9 with support for sRGB and DCI-P3 color gamuts. Notably, the display is protected by Corning's toughest-ever Gorilla Glass 6.
Screen Unlock: OnePlus 6T's highlight feature
OnePlus 6T comes with an optical in-display fingerprint scanner - something we've seen on a few smartphones now. The display lights up a section where you position your finger; the optical sensor reads and authenticates your fingerprint from beneath the screen. And while OnePlus claims this feature will unlock the device in 0.35 seconds, you will have a few hits and misses.
For the shutterbugs and selfie lovers
OnePlus 6T sports a dual rear-camera setup comprising a 16-megapixel (f/1.7) main sensor, paired with a 20-megapixel (f/1.7) secondary sensor and LED flash - same as OnePlus 6. However, the company has offered an improved Portrait mode and an all-new Nightscene which offers better images in low-light. Up front, the 6T retains its predecessor's 16MP (f/2.0) RGB camera that assists Face unlock feature.
Under the hood
Internally, the OnePlus 6T is same as the OnePlus, except for a bigger battery and new OS. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of non-expandable storage.
