OnePlus 6T launched with camera, screen, battery upgrades

TODO alt text

After launching the highly-awaited OnePlus 6T in NY on Monday, the Chinese smartphone maker will be introducing its new flagship device today in India.

The company will also be hosting pop-up events across 8 Indian cities, including Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ahmedabad on 2 November 2018 starting 11:00 am.

The new move may be down to the OnePlus 6T's higher price tag, which could mean more customers opt to buy the phone on contract rather than outright as many have previously. Having said that, it's hard to justify or recommend a full-price purchase from T-Mobile given the restrictions, unless customers choose to trade in their old smartphone with the carrier and acquire the newest OnePlus flagship at a discounted price of $279.

OnePlus 6T comes loaded with a 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED display with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

The 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant is priced at Rs 37,999, 8/128 variant for Rs 41,999 and the high-end 8/256 for Rs 45,999. The phone will be available in different memory configurations: 6GB LPDDR4X RAM with 128GB UFS 2.1 storage and 8GB LPDDRX with 256GB UFS 2.1 storage options. The company will be live streaming the event, and you can catch the live stream below. In case you want to know the specifications of the OnePlus 6T, you can scroll on to below to know.

Like the Huawei Mate20 Pro, the new OnePlus 6T has a fingerprint sensor built into the screen - removing the need for a home button and a fingerprint sensor on the back. There is a prominent removal as well - the OnePlus 6T foregoes the headphone jack, with users having to rely on the USB Type-C port or Bluetooth for their audio pairing needs. Further, there's a new Studio Lighting feature developed in collaboration with photographer Kevin Abosch to enhance portraits.

OnePlus 6T has a special feature called "NightScape".

Other changes found in the Open Beta 6 update for the OnePlus 6 include the addition of new navigation gestures, improved UI for About phone, an improved process for taking screenshots, and the November Android security update. The smaller notch still incorporates the front camera and sensors, with the earpiece moved to the top edge of the phone. The front lens is 16MP and that comes with an aperture of f2.0.

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.

The OnePlus 6T sees an upgrade in the battery department, with a larger 3,700mAh battery under the hood.

One side effect of the new sensor is the removal of a conventional 3.5mm port for headphones.

Interestingly, this feature will also be available with the OnePlus 6 soon, thanks to a software update.
