OnePlus 6T is surely one among the most awaited smartphone of the year. Although a few days are still remaining for its launch, we already know about various specifications and features of the smartphone, thanks to the rumours and speculations that have been surfacing online for months now. Here, we list all of them down, along with OnePlus 6T’s expected price. So here’s what you can expect from the upcoming OnePlus 6T smartphone:
OnePlus 6T reportedly got listed on Otto yesterday along with its complete list of specifications. The same report claimed that the smartphone will come with a 6.4-inch (2340x1080p) AMOLED display with 402ppi pixel density. It will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and will have a waterdrop shaped notch on the top which will house the selfie camera of the device.
Indisplay fingerprint sensor
This is something that we know for sure, as OnePlus itself has confirmed it. OnePlus 6T would not have fingerprint sensor on its body. Instead, it is opting for an indisplay fingerprint sensor, much like the ones we have seen in Vivo X21, Vivo Nex and Vivo V11 Pro. OnePlus also revealed that it will be using an optical indisplay fingerprint sensor on the device rather than an ultrasonic one.
A few back, a report in WinFuture.de claimed that OnePlus 6T was spotted on Geekbench under the name FS FS P8801. Having a secret name for their devices is nothing new for OnePlus as OnePlus 6 was also NS NS P7819 on Geekbench prior to its launch. The Geekbench test clearly showed that OnePlus 6T will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoC, which is also the most powerful processor that is available. We were’nt surprised by this as the company’s current flagship, OnePlus 6, is also powered by the same processor.
OnePlus 6T, much like OnePlus 6, would sport a dual rear camera setup with 16MP+20MP sensors. For selfie lovers, there will be a 16MP front facing snapper. We know this from the listing on Otto. However, to know which optics have been used in the sensors, we’ll have to wait a little more. A few days back, the company’s CEO Pete Lau shared a camera sample on Weibo that has been clicked by the upcoming device.
RAM and Storage
The report in WinFuture.de that we mentioned about, also revealed the RAM of the upcoming OnePlus 6T to be 8GB. This isn’t anything new as OnePlus 6 also has a 8GB RAM variant. However, another report claims that in OnePlus 6T, the base variant would pack 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. This is something new as till now, the base variants of OnePlus smartphones usually come with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. But we would have to wait till the device is launched till we know for sure. We are expecting a 6GB and an 8GB RAM variants clubbed with 64GB/128GB/256GB onboard storage.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed on Weibo yesterday that OnePlus 6T will run Android 9.0 Pie. Since OnePlus smartphones don’t come with stock Android experience, the Android 9.0 Pie will have the company’s OxygenOS baked on top. Since, OnePlus 6 got the Android 9.0 Pie update sometime back, this was something we were expecting.
A number speculations suggest that OnePlus 6T will come with a 3,700mAh battery, which is more than the current flagship that houses a 3,300mAh battery. The comany has confirmed that the smartphone will not support wireless charging, but will support fast charging (5V 4A).
It’s disappointing, but OnePlus 6T would come without an IP rating, which basically means that it would not be dust or water resistant. Also, this didn’t surface in a report or a speculation, but was confirmed by the company itself. So, you would need to be extra careful while using the phone if you buy it.
According to the listing on Otto we mentioned earlier, the 8GB RAM/128GB internal storage variant of the device will cost 579 Euros. Once converted, this becomes around Rs 48,871, which is higher than OnePlus 6’s 8GB RAM/128GB storage model. For the price of other RAM/storage variants, we will have to wait for the launch.
In India, the smartphone has been up on pre-orders on Amazon.in, Croma outlets and OnePlus offline stores since October 9. It will be going on sale in starting November 2. Interested customers can also pick it from Reliance Digital Stores.
According to the listing on Otto, OnePlus 6T will be available in Midnight Black and Mirror Black colour options. But if OnePlus follows what it did while launching OnePlus 6, we would get a White and Red colour variants too.
