    By Sandeep Sarkar

    OnePlus has finally launched the highly anticipated flagship OnePlus 6T in India. The smartphone packs some top of the line features and is an upgrade to the OnePlus 6 which was launched earlier this year. Similar to the company's T line up of devices the new flagship smartphone brings some slight changes over its precursor.

    OnePlus 6T vs OnePlus 6: Key differences detailed


    Let's have a look at the primary upgrades which the OnePlus 6T brings over the OnePlus 6:

    Display: Teardrop notch

    The first noticeable change which the OnePlus 6T brings over the OnePlus 6 is the smaller teardrop notch with a bigger display size. While the OnePlus 6T packs a bigger 6.41-inch teardrop display, the OnePlus 6 packs a smaller 6.28-inch display.

    Both the smartphones have a same 19:5:9 aspect ratio display with the OnePlus 6 offering a screen resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels and the OnePlus 6T offering a screen resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. Both the OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 have a Corning Gorilla Glass on top for added screen protection.

    Fingerprint scanner: In-display fingerprint scanner

    This is the other highlight of the OnePlus 6T. The OnePlus 6T incorporates an in-display fingerprint scanner. The smartphone utilizes a 4th-gen in-display fingerprint scanner from Synaptics. OnePlus has also optimized the scanner for a flawless performance. We will test the performance of the in-display fingerprint scanner and will share the feedback in our comprehensive review.

    Battery: Bigger battery on OnePlus 6T

    The OnePlus 6T packs a bigger 3,700mAh battery. We already have seen the performance of the battery on OnePlus 6 which performed fairly well. Since OnePlus 6T packs a bigger battery, it would be safe to assume that the device will give a longer battery back up.

    Other differences and similarities

    In terms of other specifications, both the smartphones are almost identical. Due to the presence of an in-display fingerprint and a teardrop notch, the 6T has a different design. However, we can claim it to be a refined version of its predecessor as it is not a complete overhaul. 


    On the hardware front, both the smartphones use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC clubbed with 6GB/8GB RAM. But the difference is in the storage aspect. The OnePlus 6 has 64GB/128GB/256GB storage space while the OnePlus 6T comes with 128GB/256GB storage space. It misses out on the 64GB storage, which is impressive.  

    For imaging, both the OnePlus flagship models of this year have similar cameras at the front and rear. But the difference is that the one on the 6T comes with Nightscape and Studio Lighting features. While these aspects are missing in the OnePlus 6, the device has started getting them via the OxygenOS Beta 6 update. 


    With the above-mentioned improvements and upgrades, the OnePlus 6T is priced at Rs. 37,999, Rs. 41,999 and Rs. 45,999 for the three variants. And, the OnePlus 6 is priced at Rs. 34,999, Rs. 39,999 and Rs. 44,999 for the three variants. However, buyers interested in a OnePlus smartphone have no choice now as the OnePlus 6 is out of stock in the country.
