If you’re looking for a flagship smartphone and don’t want to spend upwards of $1000, OnePlus is there for you. Its newest flagship, the OnePlus 6T, is available now and costs just $549.
“The OnePlus 6T continues our proud tradition of combining industry-leading specs with Fast and Smooth software for a truly burdenless experience,” a OnePlus announcement notes. “Our mission is to share the best tech with the world.”
And to that end, the OnePlus 6T delivers a set of specifications that matches and often exceeds what’s available in much more expensive devices like the Samsung Galaxy S9+ or the Google Pixel 3 XL. It features a 6.41-inch 2340 x 1080 (402 PPI) Optic AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6 or 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of internal storage, and a dual camera system.
The OnePlus 6T also comes with some truly unique features like its in-display fingerprint reader and its tiny, teardrop-shaped notch, which is about 1/8th the size of the notch on the Apple iPhone XS. OnePlus also carries forward its best-in-market fast charging system, which provides a full day of battery life in just 30 minutes.
The OnePlus 6T is available now from the OnePlus website and, here in the U.S., from T-Mobile. It starts at $549 for versions with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, but there are versions with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage for just $629 as well. And T-Mobile customers can save up to 50 percent if they trade-in a qualifying device.
