All you need to know about the much-awaited One Plus 6T

But not for a sporting event.

The OnePlus 6T got announced yesterday, and it comes with a new set of official wallpapers, of course. The OnePlus 6T offers a striking design and a premium experience for those on a budget. The OnePlus 6T becomes the second smartphone after Oppo R17 to launch with the latest Gorilla Glass 6, and basically, it's the first one to launch globally. To house this sensor under the display, OnePlus said that it led to the removal of the headphone jack and now, there will be either the USB-Type C headphones or the Bluetooth option available for the users for the audio output. When the screen is locked and turned on, a small fingerprint icon appears in the middle of the lower half, illuminating a virtual thumbprint for you to place your physical finger on.

The OnePlus 6T comes with a dual-camera setup featuring 16MP and 20MP sensors.

T-Mobile will carry the new OnePlus 6T, the first time a phone from the popular Chinese manufacturer has been offered by a USA wireless provider. It's a 6.41-inch diagonal OLED (1080 x 2340, c.402ppi, 19.5:9 aspect ratio) with a much less aggressive "teardrop" notch.

The speaker moves to the top of the device. The optical scanner, which sits towards the bottom of the handset's 6.4in FHD+ AMOLED scanner, lets users unlock the 6T by pressing their digits on the screen. At the expense of the rapidly dying headphone jack, we got some minor QoL changes here and there, an on-screen fingerprint scanner and a bigger battery.

And underneath, you'll find Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 845 processor, paired with either 6GB or 8GB RAM. The OnePlus 6T phone runs custom OxygenOS skin on top of Android Pie. OnePlus also claims that in their night-mode, the device will be able to capture a photo in the HDR mode in only 2 seconds as opposed to the 5 seconds that it takes in most Android smartphones. The OnePlus 6T camera also now has the ability to record 4K videos at 60 FPS, and record superslow videos at 480 FPS.

There's then a version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $579 / £519 (roughly AU$825), and a model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $629 / £569 (approximately AU$895). For a limited time (starting Thursday, Nov. 1), T-Mobile is offering a $300 credit when you trade in an eligible phone and purchase a OnePlus 6T.

Availability was a big surprise, as OnePlus teamed up with T-Mobile.

The Chinese giant is allowing customers to trade-in their old devices for either cash back or a voucher that can be used to cut down the OnePlus 6T's price. It was introduced at an in NY, a day ago. Those availing the offer will get the cashback in the form of 36 vouchers worth Rs 150 each in the MyJio app.
