OnePlus 6T goes official
- After a lot of rumours and leaks, the much-anticipated OnePlus 6T has gone official with a waterdrop notch, no headphone jack, a bigger battery and an in-display fingerprint sensor that unlocks it in just 0.34 seconds.
- The device’s design is exactly what the leaks had suggested. There’s a 6.42-inch AMOLED display with a new notch design. This screen is of FHD+ resolution and has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The rear is identical to the OnePlus 6, albeit the external finger sensor is now missing.
- The primary cameras on the OnePlus 6T consist of a 16MP main module and a 20MP secondary module, both with f/1.7 aperture. The company claims to have improved the phone’s night time photography through ‘Nightscape’, a new HDR algorithm. There’s a 16MP front camera with new portrait model called ‘Studio Lighting’.
- Under the hood, there’s a familiar Snapdragon 845 chipset that’s coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256 GB of in-built storage. The battery on the smartphone is now larger at 3,700mAh, however, there’s still no wireless charging on offer.
- On the software front, the 6T launches with the latest Android 9.0 Pie with gesture-based navigation UI. Prices range between US $549-629 depending on the variant chosen. India prices will be revealed on October 30 evening in New Delhi. Update: Rs 37,999 for 6GB/ 128GB, Rs 41,999 for 8GB/ 128GB and Rs 45,999 for 8GB/ 265GB.
