OnePlus 6T launched: Specifications, features, and price
OnePlus has officially unveiled its most-advanced smartphone yet - the OnePlus 6T.
In the US, OnePlus 6T starts at $549 for the 6GB/128GB base model. Notably, India pricing will be disclosed today.
Here's our roundup of OnePlus 6T.
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.
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.
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.
Connectivity options and sensors onboard OnePlus 6T
The OnePlus 6T supports dual-SIM cards (Nano), 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11a/c (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, GPS/A-GPS, and a USB Type-C (v2.0) port.
Notably, there's no headphone jack - blame the bigger battery and in-display fingerprint sensor.
The waterdrop notch houses a three-in-one ambient light, proximity, and RGB sensor
Further, the phone also supports DiracHD Sound and DiracPower Sound.
Pricing and Availability
In the US, OnePlus 6T costs $549 for 6GB RAM/128GB storage model, $579 for the 8GB/128GB variant and $629 for the 8GB/256GB option.
