Life with the OnePlus 6T: A better phone with less compromise

Life with the OnePlus 6T: A better phone with less compromise

What's the price of a OnePlus 6T phone? Most notably, it has a fingerprint reader built into the display glass-a first for the US market-and just a small camera cutout near the top of the 6.41-inch screen.

OnePlus has unveiled its new smartphone, the OnePlus 6T.

Oneplus introduced new technology in 6T, called Screen Unlock, which they claim is the fastest in-display fingerprint scanner yet.The smartphone is available in two variants - Mirror Black with a glossy finish and Midnight Black with matte finish.

OnePlus has chose to do away with the 3.5mm audio jack in the OnePlus 6T, and only have a USB Type-C port.

As the crowd went cheering on all the information that was revealed about the 6T in India, there was exciting news for potential buyers. This the first time OnePlus has ditched the fingerprint sensor on a smartphone.

While the size of the screen on the 6T has increased, albeit slightly, the size of the notch has done the opposite. Underlining the overall design of the smartphone is the all-new Waterdrop Notch on the top, housing sensors and all-new 20MP front camera.

The OnePlus 6 arrived on the market back in March and boasted a number of incredible features. However, there is a new mode for improving low-light performance when taking photos at night, and an also-new "Studio Lighting" feature works to analyse and attenuate lighting when taking portraits. In terms of technical specifications, it looks like OnePlus has retained nearly everything from the 6, except for a larger battery, which is up to 3,700mAh. But, there is one major caveat that doesn't allow the launcher to run on any device that isn't running OxygenOS 9 based on Android Pie. OnePlus, by contrast, only sells premium phones that cost $400 or more and nearly exclusively online except in India. "OnePlus has a sterling reputation, and we've researched the device and vetted it thoroughly", Freier said. The display itself is a 6.4" wide-gamut AMOLED job with a resolution of 2280x1080, and it hides a secret underneath: "an embedded fingerprint reader.

And naturally, you can put USB-C headphones into the port if you desperately want a wired connection. On the storage front, the OnePlus 6T comes with 128GB and 256GB storage models. So, OnePlus 6T has been launched in three models - 6GB RAM/128GB, 8GB RAM/128GB and lastly 8GB RAM/256GB. There's also an enhanced "Do Not Disturb" mode, game mode, smart boost, new shortcuts for toggling between recently used apps and more. For those of you who rely on device financing, trade-ins, or T-Mobile Jump!, you may have found it hard to switch over to a OnePlus device. Oddly enough, although the handset has a glass back, there's no wireless charging available.
