OnePlus 6T, the latest flagship smartphone from the company has been launched in India. This device is definitely a major improvement in comparison to its predecessor. It comes with several interesting features that are seen on a OnePlus device for the first time. In terms of design, it is a refined version of the OnePlus 6.
OnePlus 6T specifications and features
OnePlus 6T adorns a relatively larger 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display with a FHD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. It has an in-display fingerprint sensor called Screen Unlock and it unlocks the device in 0.34 seconds. There is a teardrop notch and Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. The tiny notch houses the earpiece, selfie camera and sensors under it. At its heart, this smartphone makes use of a 2.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 845 SoC based on the 10nm process paired with Adreno 630 GPU, 6GB/8GB RAM and 128G/256GB UFS 2.1 storage space.
Running Android 9.0 Pie topped with OxygenOS 9.0 out of the box, this new OnePlus smartphone supports two nano SIM cards. The OxygenOS 9.0 comes with full screen gestures, Smart Boost technology, which will reduce the app loading speed by storing data from frequently used apps in the RAM and more.
The imaging aspects include a dual-camera setup at its rear with a 16MP primary Sony IMX519 sensor with f/1.7 aperture, OIS and EIS and a 20MP secondary Sony IMX376K sensor with the same aperture, slow-mo video recording support at 480 fps and dual LED flash. There is a 16MP selfie camera with Sony IMX371 sensor and f/2.0 aperture. The camera comes with Nightscape mode for better low-light photos and Studio Lighting feature. Both these features will be rolled out to the OnePlus 6 via an update starting tomorrow.
The device is not official IP certified but it is water resistant. There is a USB Type-C port and no 3.5mm headphone jack. There are bottom-facing speakers with Dirac HD Sound.
