Moroever, the OnePlus 6T is already up for pre-ordering on Amazon.in. For the ones, who have their hearts set on this upcoming flagship, they can book it on Amazon by paying INR 1,000. The OnePlus 6T is an upgrade over the OnePlus 6. Buyers who pre-book the phone on Amazon, will also be get OnePlus Type-C Bullets Earphone and INR 500 cashback in the form of Amazon Pay balance.
One of the biggest changes that it brings over its predecessor is that it will come with an In-display fingerprint scanner instead of a physical one. Besides, it’s worth noting that the phone will not feature a 3.5mm audio jack. Of course, the company will be providing a USB Type-C to 3.5mm audio adapter to make up for the lack of it. Design-wise, we will get a teardrop notch on the phone.
