OnePlus 6T Specs, Price, Release Date Is Official, Here Are The Details

OnePlus has unveiled its latest smartphone, the 6T, at an event on October 29 in NY. Similar to the Vivo V11 Pro and the OPPO R17, the OnePlus 6T now flaunts a larger 6.41-inch display with a screen-to-body ratio of 86 per cent - thanks to the tiny water drop style notch, and nearly non-existing bezels, making it feel slightly taller and wider.

But, just what will those users be getting if they do opt to purchase OnePlus 6T from T-Mobile - or, on any other network for that matter? For example, the fingerprint sensor in the display.

OnePlus is affiliated with OPPO, a Chinese smartphone-maker and a major force in mid-end phones, which are sold globally and cost about $300. It sounds simple, but it also requires that you have to reorganize the speaker, the front camera and the sensors for ambient light and proximity detection more cleverly in the tightest of spaces.

The OnePlus 6T has a slightly bigger 6.41-inch full HD OLED display than the OnePlus 6.

On the camera front, the OnePlus 6T shares the identical sensors as featured in the OnePlus 6 - 20MP+16MP cameras on the rear and a 16MP selfie camera sensor.

Due to the new fingerprint sensor and the display, OnePlus has also rearranged the internal components in the lower part of the smartphone.

The incremental T update brings no changes inside the hood and packs the same Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 6GB/ 8GB of RAM. Soon after the OnePlus 3 launch, the company has been following a six-month cycle for every phone launch after.

While Malaysia might not be chosen as one of the pop-up store locations for the launch of OnePlus 6T, our market did receive the closest thing to it: a pre-order program.

Among the most interesting new camera software feature is a capture mode called "Nightscape.' Like Google's upcoming 'Night Sight" feature, this mode promises to help 6T owners capture better photos at night.

The phone itself is a refinement of the OnePlus 6 which was launched back in May.

The overall shape of the OnePlus 6T is familiar with its rounded corners but it's much thinner and lighter than you might expect.

OnePlus said it needed to free up the space for the battery, which is why the jack is gone.

OnePlus announced the Bullets headphones with USB Type-C variant at $20.

The OnePlus 6T will be available in Blighty on 6 November, and will be available in three variations; 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB.

What about the glass on the back?

Prices start at $549 for the mirror black and midnight black editions in the USA, or £499 directly from OnePlus in the United Kingdom, shipping on November 6th.
