10 OnePlus 6T features you should know about

The ‘T’ variant of the OnePlus 6 is about to be revealed next month. The OnePlus 6T features have already appeared online several times. Now, the company has also released its official TV commercial. The TV commercial confirms some features of the new smartphone and shows the back of the phone as well.

The OnePlus 6T will surely come with several improvements over OnePlus 6 just like the previous ‘T’ versions. The company has geared up for the device’s launch and Amazon India has even created a page for the OnePlus 6T. Apart from the TV ad, some features have also been confirmed about it.

Here are 10 features that are being expected on the OnePlus 6T.

No 3.5 mm headphone jack

Type C Bullets

It is confirmed that OnePlus 6T will come without the 3.5mm headphone jack. The company’s CEO Carl Pei has confirmed this in an interview with TechRadar. Also, the company has introduced new USB Type C Bullets headphones that are being expected to be shipped with the initial units of the upcoming device.

In-display fingerprint scanner

IN the TV commercial, Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan talks about “a new way to unlock your smartphone” which indicates that OnePlus 6T will ship with the new in-display fingerprint scanning tech.

OnePlus 6T retail box leaked on Weibo

This is also in-line with the leaks and the ad itself makes this assumption reliable as there’s no visible fingerprint scanner at the back of the device in the ad. It also makes sense as OnePlus’ sister companies Oppo and Vivo have already been using this technology in their phones for a long time now.

Further, it is also expected that OnePlus 6T will feature a slightly bigger display than the OnePlus 6. It is being speculated that OnePlus 6T will come with a 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED display with an FHD+ resolution of 2340×1080 pixels. Whereas OnePlus 6 sports a 6.28-inches display.

There is one more thing that is confirmed about the OnePlus 6T. The phone is expected to come with a new waterdrop notch similar to the Oppo and Vivo’s latest designs. The Oppo F9 Pro and Vivo V11 Pro come with this design. It is a smaller notch than the usual ones found on phones these days and packs front camera in it.

Corning Gorilla Glass 6

There are also speculations about the protection used on OnePlus 6T. It is expected that OnePlus 6T will come with the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection which is an upgraded version of Gorilla Glass 5 that was used on the previous phone. Notably, Oppo F9 series already come with this new protection.

25 MP front camera

OnePlus has been using the same 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera since OnePlus 5 only with some slight improvements. This time, however, it is expected that OnePlus 6T will come with a 25MP selfie camera. It is speculated that this could be the same front camera as used in the Oppo F9.

Variable aperture in rear cameras

One more thing about the OnePlus cameras could change this time. From the teasers and leaks, it is clear now that OnePlus 6T will feature the same 16MP + 20MP dual camera set up at the back, however, it will come with further improvements. It is possible that OnePlus could use the variable aperture feature used in flagships these days. The Oneplus 6T rear camera could come with a variable f/1.5-f/2.4 aperture.

Bigger battery

OnePlus has been using 3300 mAh for its smartphones. Now, it seems like OnePlus 6T will come with a slightly bigger 3700mAh battery. And, of course, this will support the company’s Dash charging technology which is also expected to be improved.

USB 3.1, Type C

OnePlus uses USB Type C port for fast charging and fast data transfer speeds. This is also going to be improved this time most probably. It is expected that OnePlus might use new USB 3.1 internal circuit on 6T which means data transfers could be even faster.

Higher Price

The OnePlus 6T will come with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and similar RAM and storage options. Still, it is expected that OnePlus 6T will be priced higher than the OnePlus 6. This is because of the new technologies they are using in the new flagship. OnePlus 6T price in India is expected to start from Rs. 37,000.
