OnePlus 6T Review – Full Specifications, Price, Latest News & More
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus stuns its competitors to keep dream run alive by launching OnePlus 6T. Known for its good specs in a cheap package keeps its momentum high.
The successor of OnePlus 6 will surely break the ice with many more record-breaking sales. The tweaked version of OnePlus 6 with a bigger battery and a couple of new features makes the new OnePlus 6T the most advanced phone to date.
Before you purchase the newly launched OnePlus 6T, make sure to read the latest news and everything about OnePlus 6T!
OnePlus 6T Specifications:
In terms of design and specs, OnePlus 6 T keeps on updating with latest and greatest specs on the board. The in-display fingerprint sensor, smaller notch at the top, and bigger battery make it a worthy flagship handset.
The OnePlus 6T doesn’t have any big difference when compared to its predecessor. It sports a 6.41-inch AMOLED display with 1080x2340 pixel resolution with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio (86% screen-to-body ratio).
Powered by the powerful Snapdragon 845 chipset and 6GB/8GB LPDDR4X RAM, OnePlus 6 T comes in 128GB/256GB storage with no option of expandable storage via microSD card.
Not a Game Changer Camera for OnePlus 6T:
For the protection of screen, it has Corning Gorilla Glass on its top. It has got “waterdrop” style for its notch. Coming to the cameras, OnePlus 6T sports a 16MP f/1.7 Sony IMX 519 w/EIS, OIS primary and 20-mp f/1.7 Sony IMX 376K portrait camera. The front camera is equipped with 16-mp f/2.0 Sony IMX 371 w/EIS lens for better handling of selfies.
With improved nightscape mode, OnePlus 6T boasts to process low-light pics. However, one can’t compare it with Google’s Night Sight for sure. However, the comparison at a greater cost will not do proper justice. For the given price, the OnePlus 6T camera is worth enough.
Decent Battery with Fast Charge Support:
The 20% improvement in battery life through 3700mAh battery will definitely better it chances against the competition. With GPS on and a lot of Youtubin’, OnePlus 6T was able to provide 6 hours of screen on time. The fast charge support (5V, 4A) makes it a reliable smartphone to deliver a day’s battery juice within 30 minutes of power.
For the die-hard fans of a 3.5mm headphone jack, OnePlus 6T has got the bad news. The company will no longer provide the 3.5mm jack support. However, the addition of the in-display fingerprint sensor by removing it from the backside will make the new OnePlus 6T more secure and faster to unlock.
The Android 9 Pie with Oxygen OS makes it near perfect with own set of options to customize the look and feel.
OnePlus Getting Aggressive with Online & Offline Presence:
Starting November 1st, the OnePlus 6T will be up for sale on the e-commerce portal Amazon India, OnePlus official website, Croma and Reliance Digital stores across the nation. Apart from its online presence, OnePlus is making efforts to boost its offline visibility and thus getting aggressive in the Indian market.
Apart from the two colour variants Midnight Black and Mirror Black, the company is set to launch the third colour variant Thunder Purple. It looks as if the company is following the same strategy of OnePlus 6 with respect to the colours.
Regarding the pricing, OnePlus 6T Mirror Black base variant 6GB RAM/128GB ROM will cost ₹37,999. The next higher variant 8GB RAM+128GB ROM version will retail for ₹41,999. The premium variant (8GB RAM+ 128GB ROM) will cost ₹44,999.
As part of the launch, OnePlus has tied up with Amazon India, and Indian Banks such as ICICI, Kotak and Citibank to offer cashback discounts. On the purchase of OnePlus 6T handset during the offer duration (Nov 1-5th, 2018), Amazon India offers extra ₹1000 cashback in the form of Amazon Pay Balance. For Amazon Prime customers, you get extra ₹500.
OnePlus 6T Latest News: No Notification LED & More
A series of threads in the OnePlus official forums started popping up regarding notification LED. The company officially confirmed that notification LED was removed as an attempt to replace it for ambient display features.
Though the handset is water-resistant, the product page doesn’t specify any IP rating. The news has gone viral and an official IP certification is yet to prove the claim.
Should You Purchase OnePlus 6T?
If you purchase through HDFC Credit/Debit Card, you get 10% instant discount up to ₹1500. That translates to ₹3000 instant discount if you happen to use Amazon Pay Balance and HDFC card for the purchase transaction.
In short, the latest OnePlus 6T is an excellent flagship smartphone with a little compromise on camera. If you are a OnePlus flagship hardware lover and got vexed up with the ridiculous pricing of Google Pixel, then OnePlus 6T is for you.
However, if you are a camera lover and don’t want to compromise with loads of cash then OnePlus 6T is certainly not for you. Otherwise, the new OnePlus 6T is the real flagship killer.
