OnePlus 6T: At a glance
To recall, 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 in-display fingerprint sensor.
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.
