OnePlus 6T Launches in New York

Posted on October 29, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Android with 20 Comments

There were no real surprises given all the leaks, but the OnePlus 6T is now available. And it looks amazing. As expected.

As OnePlus’ version of an “S year” release, the OnePlus 6T builds on the excellent OnePlus 6 but includes the following changes:

Tear-drop notch. The already reasonably-sized OnePlus 6 notch has been shrunken down to a very small, tear-drop shape that seems to be the most inoffensive occlusion yet. Also, the small bottom bezel, or chin, is even smaller than before.

In-display fingerprint reader. In a first for a smartphone sold in the U.S., the OnePlus 6T features an in-display fingerprint reader that looks fast, secure, and intuitive. This is a much more acceptable solution than Apple’s camera-only sign-ins.

Taller display. Though the OnePlus 6T display is still 1080p, it’s taller than its predecessor and has a 9.5:9 aspect ratio with a 2340 x 1080 resolution at 402 PPI. It’s also very bright at 600 nits.

Dual camera system. I don’t believe the dual camera system is different from a hardware perspective—it features 16 MP and 20 MP sensors with an f/1.7 aperture. as before—but there’s a new Nightscape mode for low-light conditions and some other software improvements.

Specs. As expected, the 6T is powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6 to 8 GB of RAM, and 128 or 256 GB of storage. It supports 1.2 Gbps 4G LTE connectivity as well.

The OnePlus 6T will be sold at T-Mobile here in the U.S. and via the OnePlus website as before. Prices start at $549 for 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. It’s $579 (8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage) and run to $629 for 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The device becomes available on November 6.
