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.

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.

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.

Internals

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.

The phone packs 3,700mAh battery with support for 20W Dash Charge and runs Android Pie-based Oxygen OS 9.0.3 that offers revamped gesture-based navigation.
