OnePlus 6T

After months of leaks, OnePlus has now officially launched its second flagship smartphone of the year — OnePlus 6T — at an event in New York. The phone matches up with the leaks, offers top-end specs, and has an affordable price tag.

The phone’s specifications haven’t changed much compared to the OnePlus 6 launched earlier this year. It comes with a 6.41-inch OLED display with a screen resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Instead of the regular notch, this one comes with a much smaller “teardrop” notch.

For the first time, the company has opted for an in-display fingerprint sensor. OnePlus calls its version of this technology “Screen Unlock” and claims that it’s the fastest-performing implementation of in-display fingerprint authentication yet.

The device is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that can boost up to 2.8GHz, along with an Adreno 630 GPU. The phone comes in two variations that include either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of built-in storage.

The OnePlus 6T comes with a dual-camera setup featuring 16MP and 20MP sensors. While the main camera utilises OIS and EIS, the secondary sensor is mainly used for the phone’s portrait mode. On the front side, there’s a 16MP snapper for taking selfies and video calling.

The company is also introducing a new Nightscape feature that’s meant to help improve low-light photography. There’s also a new Studio Lighting feature, developed in collaboration with photographer Kevin Abosch, which aims to produce more flattering portraits.

It has some degree of water and dust resistance but there’s no IP-certified ratings. The phone is running Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box with the company’s own OxygenOS on top. It is powered by a 3,700mAh battery that utilizes OnePlus’ Fast Charge technology.

The 6GB + 128GB model costs $549 while the 8GB RAM model with 128GB storage is priced at $579. The top-end model with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage is priced at $629. The phone will be available in Mirror Black and Midnight Black colors and will go on pre-orders from 1st November.
