OnePlus 6T launch date, options, specs and rumours

Chinese language producer OnePlus has constructed its status on delivering smartphones which can be practically half the worth of their rivals, however comparable by way of design, options and specs.

OnePlus is getting ready to launch its second telephone of the yr, the OnePlus 6T, and trying to sweep in additional than only a minor tweak over the OnePlus 6. This is every part we all know concerning the new handset.

OnePlus 6T launch date and worth

  • 30 October launch occasion confirmed
  • At the least $529 / £469 

OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 6T occasion shall be held on 30 October in New York. The occasion will happen at 3pm GMT.

It will likely be livestreamed so you may observe the motion and we’ll be internet hosting the video right here on Pocket-lint.

When it comes to worth, we would not anticipate the OnePlus 6T to be cheaper than the OnePlus 6, that means a beginning worth of at the very least £469 or $529. The CNET report claims a $550 beginning worth is being mentioned however nothing is confirmed as but.

OnePlus 6T design

  • Round 155.7 x 75.Four x 7.8mm, 177g seemingly
  • Gorilla Glass 5 back and front seemingly
  • In-display fingerprint sensor confirmed
  • No 3.5mm headphone jack confirmed

The OnePlus 6 switched to a glass design, providing 4 colors that each one differ in finishes and appears. Regardless of the variations in end nevertheless, every has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 safety on the entrance and rear with a steel core, and we might anticipate the OnePlus 6T to proceed down this path.

We might additionally anticipate the identical, or actually an identical, footprint. One leak has advised 157.5 x 75.7 x 8.2mm for the 6T, which might make it the identical width however barely taller and thicker.

There is no such thing as a official IP score for the OnePlus 6, although it does provide a level of waterproofing. Maybe the OnePlus 6T will give us a quantity although, given that is quick turning into the norm.

On the facet of the OnePlus 6, there may be an alert slider, one thing we have now seen on OnePlus units since their starting so we might anticipate this to stay for the OnePlus 6T. The corporate has confirmed the 3.5mm headphone jack won’t be current on the 6T although. Many different flagship smartphones have ditched the headphone jack however OnePlus made some extent of retaining it up till now. The additional house will permit for a much bigger battery although.

We’re additionally anticipating that notched show to take precedent on the entrance and a twin digital camera on the rear. OnePlus launched an official render on Twitter but it surely solely exhibits the facet of the gadget so not one of the leaked design particulars have been confirmed from it. 


There have been rumours to recommend the OnePlus 6T may take a few of its options from the Oppo R17 (OnePlus and Oppo are owned by the identical firm), extra particularly the smaller notch on the show and an embedded fingerprint sensor, the latter of which has now been confirmed by OnePlus itself. The OnePlus 6T may have a characteristic referred to as Display screen Unlock, a know-how that enables the person to press their finger on the display to unlock the gadget, however facial recognition will even be current.

In an interview with Cnet, CEO Pete Lau confirmed that the three.5mm headphone socket needed to be eliminated to accommodate the the in-screen fingerprint scanner.

Supporting the waterdrop notch hearsay is a retail field leak of the OnePlus 6T proven above, in addition to a separate press render leak, a 3D CAD render from OnLeaks and MySmartPrice and one other leak on Weibo, all proven within the gallery assortment beneath.

The retail field exhibits a top level view of what seems to be the OnePlus 6T, that includes a water drop notch just like the Oppo R17, together with a fingerprint on the backside with the tag “Unlock the Pace”. The smaller water drop notch is then very a lot current on the opposite leaked pictures too and there’s no bodily fingerprint seen both, supporting their legitimacy.

That stated, the leak on Weibo exhibits a tool with three digital camera lenses on the rear and we do not assume this would be the case for the OnePlus 6T.

OnePlus 6T show

  • Waterdrop notch?
  • Optic AMOLED seemingly
  • Quad HD decision?
  • 19:9 ratio possible

The OnePlus 6 has a 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED show with a notch on the prime. It provides a facet ratio of 19:9 and a decision of Full HD+, which interprets to 2280 x 1080 for a pixel density of 401ppi.

Likelihood is, the OnePlus 6T will proceed down the identical path although if the field leak, press render and CAD render are something to go by, that notch shall be lowered and the display measurement could enhance to six.4-inches. We might like to see it ditch the notch on the prime utterly like some others have executed, however decreasing it will nonetheless be welcomed.

We’re anticipating the OnePlus 6T to stay with AMOLED too, although it will be nice to see the decision enhance to Quad HD. OnePlus has historically averted growing the decision as a way to maintain prices down, however Full HD+ is beginning to really feel very dated and even Sony switched issues up in its newest gadget – the Xperia XZ3 – regardless of additionally being a Full HD+ fan up to now.

We might additionally prefer to see HDR help added to the 6T however whether or not it will occur or not is unclear for now.

OnePlus 6T {hardware} and specs

  • Snapdragon 845 processor
  • 6GB or 8GB RAM
  • 64/128/256 GB storage choices seemingly
  • Greater battery
  • Wi-fi charging?

OnePlus is one in every of Qualcomm’s most loyal followers. The corporate usually makes use of Qualcomm’s flagship processor inside its units, which for the OnePlus 6 was the Snapdragon 845. This chipset is not due an replace till 2019 so we might anticipate the SD845 to be contained in the OnePlus 6T too.

There are three fashions of the OnePlus 6 obtainable: 64GB with 6GB of RAM, 128GB with 8GB of RAM or 256GB with 8GB of RAM. None provide microSD help so we do not anticipate to see a slot on the OnePlus 6T both.

It may very well be believable to recommend the OnePlus 6T may ditch the 64GB/6GB mannequin altogether and probably add a dearer 512GB storage choice however for now, we might say at the very least a 128GB/8GB and 256GB/8GB are protected bets for the subsequent gadget.

The OnePlus 6 supplied the identical 3300mAh battery capability because the OnePlus 5T however with the removing of the headphone jack confirmed, the corporate has stated there may be extra space contained in the chassis of the telephone for options like a much bigger battery. Sprint Cost will even be on board little question, providing 60 per cent battery in 30 minutes however we might hope to see wi-fi charging too, one thing the OnePlus 6 does not provide regardless of its glass rear.

OnePlus 6T digital camera

  • 16MP + 20MP twin rear digital camera
  • OIS on each cameras
  • 16MP entrance digital camera

The OnePlus 6 encompasses a twin digital camera system made up of a 16-megapixel major sensor with a 20-megapixel secondary sensor. Each have a f/1.7 aperture and each are optically stabilised.

On the entrance of the OnePlus 6, there’s a 16-megapixel snapper that options Qualcomm’s AI engine for portrait mode selfies, permitting for background blur.

We might anticipate the identical digital camera {hardware} on board the OnePlus 6T, even when some enhancements are made right here and there by way of processing. As we talked about above, a few picture leaks on Weibo present a 3rd digital camera lens on the rear of the OnePlus 6T, just like the Huawei P20 Professional provides, however we might be very stunned to see this seem on this mannequin. Maybe the OnePlus 7 as a substitute.

OnePlus 6T software program

  • OxygenOS
  • Android Pie seemingly

The OnePlus 6 runs on the OxygenOS, primarily based on Android Oreo. You get Android on the core, however a number of extra options like the choice of gestures for going again, house and up to date apps instead of navigation buttons.

There may be additionally Gaming mode, which boosts app loading speeds for video games and don’t disturb whereas gaming.

The OnePlus 6T will little question characteristic an identical software program expertise to the 6, although we anticipate it to launch on OxygenOS primarily based on Android Pie. Android Pie is now obtainable for the OnePlus 6 so it will be unusual for the 6T to not launch on the brand new software program.

We are going to proceed to replace this characteristic as extra rumours surrounding the OnePlus 6T seem so keep tuned.
