OnePlus 6T Launched Globally. Almost the Same Phone!

Published

on

Putting a full stop to the mill of leaks and rumors, OnePlus has today launched its next half-yearly flagship i.e. the OnePlus 6T at an event held in New York. The new phone packs in a few major upgrades over its predecessor, while being mostly similar for rest of the part. Let’s see what has changed and what has not!

The OnePlus 6T packs in a glass body design which seems a lot more reminiscent to the OnePlus 6, the back houses similarly stacked dual cameras along with an LED flash. There is no fingerprint at the back due to the in-display implementation, furthermore, as leaked previously, the phone bears a water-drop notch at the front. There are no major changes in terms of design.

As for the specs, the 6T comes with a 6.24-inch Full Optic AMOLED screen with a Full-HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels in a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, protected by the layer of the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on top. Also, it will have five calibration settings including adaptive mode, custom color and more for a better and immersive experience.

Under the hood, it is powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC found on the OnePlus 6, coupled with Adreno 630 GPU, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. It comes in three configurations, namely 6/128GB (yes, no 64GB option), 8/128GB and 8/256GB variants. Interestingly, OnePlus has improved gaming performance with the new Smart Boost feature which uses RAM as storage for an improved gaming performance. Users will experience up to 20% faster loading times with graphics-heavy games like PUBG etc.

In the Optics department, the OnePlus 6T gets the same dual camera setup from the 6, featuring a 16MP (Sony IMX 519) as its primary shooter clubbed with a 20MP (Sony IMX 376K) secondary shooter, both having an aperture of f/1.7. The camera also supports OIS along with EIS and slow-mo video recording at 480fps. The camera app has gone through some major changes with the inclusion of new features like the Studio Lighting mode similar to what we saw in the iPhone X, followed by the Nightscape mode (coming to OnePlus 6 soon) for better low light photography along with HDR, noise reduction, and more. For selfies, we again have the same 16MP f/2.0 shooter housed in the front Notch.

Furthermore, the phone makes the use of an In-Display fingerprint scanner as the unlocking method, it is termed as “Screen Unlock” by the company and is claimed to unlock the phone in just 0.34 seconds which will improve more over the time. Digging into detail, the company said that its compatible with the screen protectors (suggested official screen protectors) and will work even if the display gets small cracks.

On the software front, the new flagship runs on latest Android 9 Pie with Oxygen OS layered on top. It draws its juice from a sufficiently large 3,700mAh battery that as usual supports OnePlus’s Dash Charge. There is no headphone jack, no IP rating and no Wireless charging though.

As far as the pricing and availability is concerned, the OnePlus 6T’s base model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is priced at $549 (roughly Rs. 40,200), while the 8/128GB and 8/256GB versions will retail for $579 (roughly Rs. 42,500) and $629 (roughly Rs. 46,200), respectively. Lastly, it will first go on sale in Mirror Black and Midnight Black color options at T-Mobile Times Square Signature Store starting 5PM on October 29 along with OnePlus Type C Bullets earphones which carry a price tag of $19. The Indian pricing will be revealed during the Indian launch, tomorrow. Stay tuned for that.
