Amazon’s Fab Phones Fest is back, and with it arrives a slew of discounts and offers on your favorite smartphones. Perhaps the best deal being offered is with the OnePlus 6T (review). The event commences from midnight on April 11 and lasts until 11:59 PM on April 13. During the course of this fest, the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage model of the phone will get a flat INR 3,000 discount, setting its retail price at INR 34,999. On the other hand, the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage models will get an INR 4,000 discount, getting their prices down to INR 37,999 and INR 41,999 respectively. With the use of HDFC credit and debit cards, you can avail an additional INR 1,500 discount on all these models.
Should You Wait For The OnePlus 7?
The new discounts ensure the OnePlus 6T is that much more accessible to consumers. With a potential starting price of INR 33,499, the phone offers a notched 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen, a flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset, a dual 16MP + 20MP rear camera setup, a 16MP selfie shooter, and a large 3700mAh battery. However, the phone misses out on an IP rating and gets rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack. It also uses an in-screen fingerprint sensor which is just a tad bit slower than the capacitive sensor found in the OnePlus 6T.
On its own, the OnePlus 6T is a great handset. However, those few shortcomings are why in our OnePlus 6T review we advised existing OnePlus 6 users to hold on to their smartphone for a bit longer. Considering the OnePlus 7’s launch is just a month away, anyone who has the ability to purchase a OnePlus 6T now is better off holding on to their money for just a bit longer.
What we know so far is that the OnePlus 7 will come powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset. It is also expected to feature a notch-less screen and will probably make use of a pop-up selfie camera. Meanwhile, a triple camera setup will likely be offered on the back of this phone. The in-screen fingerprint sensor might also get reworked on for better speed and accuracy. All of this is expected to cost about the same as the OnePlus 6T’s launch price.
