OnePlus 6T Sale Will Happen Almost Immediately After Launch
The OnePlus 6T will have a different design than the OnePlus 6 (review), resulting in a higher starting price than the latter. In a recent benchmarking leak, the upcoming flagship was reported to be faster than the Galaxy Note 9 (review), though it will still ship with a Snapdragon 845. To give potential buyers early access to the device, OnePlus will open up pop-up stores across India, with the official sale starting from November 2.
Instead of relying on a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, the OnePlus 6T will feature an optical in-display scanner. This form of biometrics is cheaper than ultrasonic fingerprint solutions, which is one of the reasons why the company has opted for it. The device will also come with Night Mode, which alters the display parameters, making it less straining for your eyes.
This is the first handset from the company to ship without a 3.5mm audio jack. OnePlus CEO claims that this had to be done to increase the battery capacity, which is reportedly a 3700mAh unit. The OnePlus 6T will also ship with Android 9 Pie right off the bat, giving users access to a slew of gesture-based controls. As a result, future customers might experience better battery as Google’s latest firmware relies on machine learning to improve the OS over time.
