The OnePlus 6T has a 6.41-inch (2340 x 1080) 19.5:9 Full HD+ Optic AMOLED 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 6 display with 86% screen-to-body ratio, sRGB and DCI-P3 color coverage and is powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with 6GB or 8GB of RAM.
It has a tiny notch on the top that houses the 16-megapixel front camera with Sony IMX371 sensor, 1.0μm pixel size and f/2.0 aperture, earpiece and also houses the usual set of proximity and ambient light sensors. It also comes with face unlock feature that can unlock the phone in 0.4 seconds.
It runs on the latest Android 9.0 (Pie) with Oxygen OS 9.0 on top. It also has an option to hide the notch, but a lot of space around it is wasted.
The in-display fingerprint scanner unlocks the phone quickly, but not as quick as the fingerprint sensor or the face unlock. It also works with banking apps and password managers like Lastpass!
It has a small bezel below the display. On the left there is a dual SIM slot and the volume rockers. The company retains the altert slider, which is present on the right side, above the power button. The phone doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack, so you have to the USB Type-C port on the bottom for audio. The loudspeaker grill is present on the bottom.
It has dual rear camera arrangement with 16-megapixel primary rear camera with Sony IMX519 sensor, wide-angle lens, large f/1.7 aperture along with a 20-megapixel secondary camera with f/1.7 aperture and Sony IMX367K sensor, same as the OnePlus 6. This can capture depth information for bokeh effect that blurs backdrops in portrait mode. It comes with a new Nightscape mode for better low-light images.
It has the same 3D glass back as the predecessor, but this is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6, similar to the screen. It has a thin layer of film underneath the glass to create a sense of depth as light and shadow move on the device. It has a metal frame, support for dual nano SIM cards and dual 4G VoLTE. It has 6GB / 8GB LPDDR4X RAM with 128GB / 256GB storage based on UFS 2.1.
It packs a 3700mAh built-in battery with support for Dash Charge fast charging tech, so it should offer a better battery life compared . Since it has a bigger battery, it is 8.2mm thick and weighs 185 grams. It starts at $549 (Rs. 40,290 approx.) for the base 6GB + 128GB version and goes up to $629 (Rs. 46,160 approx.) for the 8GB + 256GB version. We will know the price when the phone is launched in India tomorrw. It goes on sale in India exclsuively on Amazon.in from November 1st.
