Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus is all set to launch the OnePlus 6T today at an event in New York. After OnePlus is done launching the 6T for global markets today, it will launch the 6T in India tomorrow at an event in New Delhi. Needless to say, OnePlus hasn’t revealed the price of OnePlus 6T in India. That will happen tomorrow. But, once the smartphone is launched in India, you won’t have to wait for weeks to be able to buy it.
The OnePlus 6T will be launched in India tomorrow, i.e., on October 30, and it will go on sale in the country from November 1. As was the case with previous OnePlus smartphones, the OnePlus 6T will also be sold online exclusively through Amazon India. However, it will also be available for purchase through OnePlus India’s official website as well as through Croma stores across the country.
The OnePlus 6T is a mid-cycle refresh to the OnePlus 6 that was launched back in May this year. It will be powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC which will be mated to up to 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. According to the leaked specs, the OnePlus 6T will boast a 6.4-inch Full-HD+ display that will have aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The display will also come with a notch, but it’s different than the iPhone X-like notch we have on the OnePlus 6. The 6T will instead come with a notch having the shape of a waterdrop.
That said, the fingerprint scanner that was present at the back on the OnePlus 6 is now missing from the 6T. Well that’s because the OnePlus 6T will come with in-display fingerprint scanner. While inclusion of in-display fingerprint scanner is definitely appreciated, what’s going to miff a lot many users is the removal of 3.5 mm headphone jack. OnePlus said it removed the 3.5 mm headphone jack from 6T in favor of “improved battery life”. If the leaked specs are to be believed, then the 6T will come with a battery that’s 400 mAh larger than the battery on OnePlus 6.
