OnePlus 6T pricing and release date leak ahead of today's big event

OnePlus 6T pricing and release date leak ahead of today's big event

The sensor is graded higher than other smartphones at this price range. It's strategy has worked well in China, India, and many European markets.

The OnePlus 6T just got announced, but we want to take a look at which phone is worth your money. The 6T has a teardrop style notch on the front. For 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB configurations, they are priced at Dollars 579 (~RM 2420) and USD 629 (~RM 2628) respectively.

The device is slightly thicker due to the addition of the in-display fingerprint sensor and the bigger 3,700 mAh batter.

Another significant change to be seen on the new 6T is the missing 3.5mm port, which the company said has been debunked to make space for the in-screen sensor. It has a combination of 16MP+20MP sensors on the back.

OnePlus also partnered with renowned portrait photographer Kevin Abosch to overhaul portrait shots taken with the 6T. OnePlus 6T will ship with OxygenOS 9 which runs on top of Android Pie and will have all the new gestures. The Chinese company promises a lag-free, fluid software experience. After that they can just move the finger over their preferred app and swipe up to launch. "As we continue to grow, we will continue to challenge this industry together".

After achieving notoriety through stunts and jaw-droppingly low pricing, the brand struggled to turn its value proposition into a mass-market deal. If you are within the U.S. and want the best phone for your network coverage, its only up to your personal preference on whether you want the OnePlus 6 or the T. Allow me to explain. The phone packs 128/256GB of internal storage that can not be expanded. That's a major deal for the company, as smartphone popularity in the U.S. is often dictated by availability in carriers' stores. And now it has succeeded. OnePlus 6T's Nightscape feature comprises of three levels of enhanced photography features such as detail optimization, multi-frame stabilization and noise reduction.

T-Mobile is the ideal wireless partner for us in the US.

There is hardly anything that we aren't already aware of the new OnePlus 6T though there is nothing like the real thing. OnePlus will sell the device unlocked for GSM carriers while T-Mobile will also sell the device as well. OnePlus has promised that there will be no carrier bloatware, which could have been a big headache for users. It will also be compatible with Verizon.

Ahead of the launch of the OnePlus 6T in India, there are several offers available on the phone. For better low-light performance, OnePlus 6T comes with Nightscape mode for rear cameras.

Unfortunately, it still won't work with Sprint's CDMA network. Both phones support fast charging though.

As for the rest, OnePlus is including the Android security patch 2018.11, an improvement to the UI in the About phone page, general improvements when taking a screenshot, and a new Google quick search box.

OnePlus has carved out a niche for itself by selling premium devices at mid-range prices. The OnePlus 6T will go on sale in India starting from November 01. But a large number of people don't have the budget for iPhone XS or XS Max, and they end up settling for the outdated iPhones. OnePlus claims to have developed the algorithms behind this new feature.
