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

We can hope that globally the price of the OnePlus 6T phone might be a little higher. Most notably, it has a fingerprint reader built into the display glass-a first for the US market-and just a small camera cutout near the top of the 6.41-inch screen.

Coming to what's new with the OnePlus 6T, the device will not have a physical fingerprint reader. The Chinese smartphone maker is touting this feature as the USP of OnePlus 6T, along with improved camera functionality and bigger battery.

The OnePlus 6T will be available in Mirror Black and Mirror Black, from 6 November with prices starting at £499.

OnePlus has made a decision to do away with the 3.5mm audio jack in the OnePlus 6T, and only have a USB Type-C port.

The company says the "T" variant is to make sure that OnePlus phones are at par with the technological trends and in the best possible way. Instead, OnePlus has placed the sensor under the display on the front. Also, if you finance the device from T-Mobile, you will be unable to unlock the bootloader until you pay off the device. But OnePlus said the computational photography algorithms have been tweaked for better colour balance and improved low-light performance using a new multi-frame Nightscape mode.

The incremental T update brings no changes inside the hood and packs the same Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 6GB/ 8GB of RAM. A 3,700mAh battery is expected to show up with the OnePlus 6T. However, the 6T ships with the latest Android 9.0 Pie running OxygenOS on top.

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.

Why it matters: OnePlus continues to demonstrate a winning formula, pairing attractive aesthetics with meaningful features and high-end hardware in a package that's far more affordable than most other flagships on the market. That's big news because it marks the first time that a OnePlus phone will be available from a US carrier.

Due to the new in-display sensor, the OnePlus 6T is 0.4mm thicker than its predecessor.

This OnePlus phone comes with "Screen Unlock", that unlocks the device through the in-display fingerprint sensor, and replaces the conventional rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Because of which, the company announced the USB Type-C version of the Bullets earphones. There's also an enhanced "Do Not Disturb" mode, game mode, smart boost, new shortcuts for toggling between recently used apps and more. On the inside, OnePlus also did a pretty decent job of out doing themselves.
