Availability was a big surprise, as OnePlus teamed up with T-Mobile. Moreover, the OnePlus 6 was available in Midnight Black, Mirror Black, Silk White, Amber Red while the 6T will be available in Midnight Black and Mirror Black options. There are three major visible changes - the missing 3.5mm headphone jack, missing fingerprint sensor from the back (which is now under the screen) and a larger screen with smaller notch and chin.
Just a day after launching its new flagship, OnePlus is already making good on its promises. We spent some time with the smartphone and have given our initial impressions as well. The phone also comes with a 16MP front camera, that enables Face Unlock. But OnePlus said the computational photography algorithms have been tweaked for better colour balance and improved low-light performance using a new multi-frame Nightscape mode. Based on OxygenOS over and above Android 9 Pie, OnePlus 6T runs the Snapdragon 845 processor, and is backed by a 3700mAh battery. The device comes in a 6GB RAM + 64GB storage and a 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant. OnePlus, by contrast, only sells premium phones that cost $400 or more and nearly exclusively online except in India.
Incidentally, the AMOLED panel has grown and is now a 6.41-inch screen, thereby resolving 60 pixels higher than the OnePlus and it is now protected by Gorilla Glass 6. Notably, you have to place your finger in a specific position on the screen; the entire screen isn't a giant fingerprint reader, as some might assume. Those who still prefer cable headphones would have to go for the new USB type-C earbuds, which come with their own DAC from Cirrus Logic and will cost around 20 euros in Europe, or 20 dollars in the US.
On Monday, T-Mobile's flagship store in Times Square saw a larger crowd of people waiting to buy the OnePlus 6T than it did for the new iPhones, a T-Mobile employee told me at the store on Monday.
OnePlus 6T features a vertically stacked 16MP+20MP dual rear camera configuration. As OnePlus product manager Szymon Kopec detailed every feature and specification in the all-new OnePlus 6T, Pei gave away the pricing and the availability of the Oneplus 6T in India. This particular improvement will also be available on the OnePlus 6. There's also an enhanced "Do Not Disturb" mode, game mode, smart boost, new shortcuts for toggling between recently used apps and more.
