Here’s everything you need to know about OnePlus 6T
Over the past few years, the word ‘OnePlus’ has become synonymous with the word “flagship killer”. The Chinese mobile manufacturer keeps improvising with every new smartphone that keeps OnePlus at the cutting edge of mobile design.
OnePlus follows a half-yearly cycle for launching smartphones. With OnePlus already releasing OnePlus 6 in May earlier this year, we can expect the company’s next-generation flagship, OnePlus 6T to be tentatively released in October this year.
A general trend from the predecessors suggests that the ‘T’ variant offers incremental upgrade over the previous OnePlus device of that year. The ‘T’ variant can be considered as the upgraded version that offers better internals, slightly improved camera performance, and few changes in the design ergonomics of the smartphone.
Display and Processor
OnePlus 6T may feature a glass front and rear with aluminium frame and could likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
OnePlus 6T may come with a choice of 6GB or 8GB of RAM and around 256GB of storage. Besides this, OnePlus might introduce a 512GB storage variant of the OnePlus 6T similar to the Galaxy Note 9, suggests reliable sources.
If OnePlus doesn’t reserve wireless charging for the OnePlus 7, we can expect OnePlus 6T to offer wireless charging. We all know that dash charging offers the fastest charging speeds. However, this might change with the Voco flash charging that will be integrated with the new OnePlus devices.
OnePlus confirmed that OnePlus 6T will be the first OnePlus device to feature an in-glass fingerprint sensor. The technology by no means is new to the market, but will definitely reach out to masses for the first time. It could also feature a 3D dual-lens camera.
Next major improvement may be in the notch department. OnePlus 6T might feature a water drop style notch, the one similar to Essential Phone. This will help OnePlus to offer one of the best screen-to-body ratio in the market.
OnePlus may adopt the exceptionally pleasing color scheme of Huawei smartphones for the new OnePlus 6T. Also, OnePlus 6T might be the first OnePlus device to get IPS68 water and dust resistant ratings.
We may see OnePlus keep its pricing low for the OnePlus 6T variant so as to compete with the high-end flagships of the competition.
The idea of offering the best flagship internals may not work for OnePlus anymore. The Shenzhen-based manufacturer may have to offer additional features so as to justify the $500 price tag that it may come with.
