OnePlus 6T Expected Specifications, Features
The OnePlus 6T will be the company’s first flagship smartphone to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor. However, the “Screen Unlock” technology will not be the only highlight of the upcoming flagship smartphone. The device is expected to sport a 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED display with a waterdrop-style notch at the top and 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. With a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, the OnePlus 6T will be capable of delivering a slightly more immersive viewing experience compared to the OnePlus 6 (Review) Another major highlight of the smartphone will be a bigger 3700mAh battery with OnePlus’ popular fast charging technology. The OnePlus 6 is already quite impressive in the battery life department with a 3300mAh capacity battery, so we certainly have high hopes from the OnePlus 6T.
Rest of the key hardware specifications, however, will be largely similar to the OnePlus 6. The OnePlus 6T will be running on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset clocked at 2.8 GHz with an Adreno 630 GPU. In the Indian market, we expect the smartphone to be sold in three variants – 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage. In terms of optics, the OnePlus 6T is rumored to feature a 16MP + 20MP dual-camera setup at the rear and a 25MP selfie camera on the front. As for software, the OnePlus 6T will likely ship with Android 9 Pie-based OxygenOS out of the box.
