A few days back, OnePlus officially confirmed that its next flagship smartphone will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. Along with confirming the headline feature of the OnePlus 6T, it also revealed the smartphone’s launch date. Ahead of the smartphone’s launch next month, it has been listed online on Giztop, complete with pricing and other key details.
OnePlus 6T: Giztop Listing Confirms Key Specifications, Features
The Giztop listing reveals the OnePlus 6T will feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a “waterdrop” style notch at the top. As rumored previously, the Optic AMOLED display on the OnePlus 6T will have 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution with an ultra-tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The OnePlus 6T display will also include a “light-sensitive” fingerprint sensor embedded under the panel and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on top for protection.
Moving on to performance, the listing confirms the OnePlus 6T will be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor as the OnePlus 6. The 10nm processor will be clocked at up to 2.8 GHz with an Adreno 630 GPU. Just as we expected, the OnePlus 6T will be available in three memory configurations – 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage. Like all previous OnePlus smartphones, the 6T will not include a microSD card slot for further expansion.
Interestingly, the OnePlus 6T is listed with a triple-camera setup at the rear. The triple-camera setup will comprise of a 20MP primary sensor, 12MP secondary sensor, and a TOF 3D camera. Thanks to a dedicated light sensor, the OnePlus 6T will apparently be capable of capturing more light in dark environments for superior low-light performance. For selfies, the OnePlus 6T will have an impressive 25MP AI front-facing camera. Since the OnePlus 6T will be powered by the exact same chipset as the OnePlus 6, we expect it to be identical to its predecessor in the connectivity department. The smartphone should include support for all the latest standards such as Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, NFC, USB Type-C., and 4G VoLTE. In the battery life department, the OnePlus 6T listing on Giztop suggests that it could be slightly better than its predecessor. While the current OnePlus 6 packs a 3300mAh capacity battery, the OnePlus 6T will include a bigger 3500mAh capacity battery with the manufacturer’s VOOC fast charging support. In terms of software, the smartphone will ship with OxygenOS based on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.
OnePlus 6T: Price, Launch Date
According to the Giztop listing, OnePlus 6T will be priced at $569 (Rs.41,400 approx.). The exact variant, however, has not been listed. Going by the pricing of the current OnePlus 6, it is possible that the 8GB RAM + 128GB variant of the 6T will be priced at $569. As for launch date, the OnePlus 6T is currently listed as being out of stock on Giztop. The listing says the smartphone will not be available until October 16.
OnePlus 6T: Expected Price in India
If the information included in the Giztop listing is accurate, we can expect the OnePlus 6T to carry a slight premium over the current OnePlus 6 in terms of pricing. The current OnePlus 6 starts in India at Rs.34,999 for the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant. OnePlus has priced the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant at Rs.39,999, while the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant is priced at Rs.43,999. The OnePlus 6T might start at Rs.36,000 or higher for the base variant.
