At an event in NYC, OnePlus announced its newest smartphone - the OnePlus 6T. Thousands of "fans" of the Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus flocked from across India to witness the launch of OnePlus 6T, the ninth smartphone from its stable. Samsung and Huawei already confirmed they'll have such devices in stores next year, including a Galaxy S10 version and Huawei's foldable phone, respectively.

T-Mobile has a unique model of the OnePlus 6T-its unit has 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a single SIM slot as opposed to the dual SIMs in unlocked 6T phones. The company will be live streaming the event, and you can catch the live stream below. We saw that you can take great low light pictures with the OnePlus 6 but the pros were tweaking with the settings. The OnePlus 6T has been available for pre-order on Amazon India for a while, and the device will go on sale starting November 1 on the e-commerce platform as well as OnePlus.in. With an in-display fingerprint sensor, Android Pie out of the box and a new water-drop notched display, there's a lot to talk about. While the aspect ratio remains 19.5:9, there is more screen area on the newer phone because of the smaller notch. The OnePlus Explorer backpack will be available later on invite basis at Rs 4,990.

OnePlus 6T has a special feature called "NightScape". The cameras remain the same but the company has added a couple of software enhancements to improve low-light and portrait photos.

Much to the dismay of many, the 6T is the first OnePlus handset to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack in favour of audio over USB-Type C. The decision was made to squeeze out extra space within the device to accommodate for the FOD module beneath the display.


To make it even more impressive and more appealing, the OnePlus 6T will also include a biometric fingerprint sensor embedded in the display which replaces the older sensor on the back of the hardware and which will work alongside the facial unlock system.

The display also serves as a home for an in-display fingerprint sensor, which is increasingly becoming popular with flagship Android smartphones. OnePlus 6T has a waterdrop-style notch, with a three-in-one ambient light sensor, distance, and RGB sensor, and front-facing camera. The front lens is 16MP and that comes with an aperture of f2.0. There's a new Smart Boost mode in OxygenOS that improves load times and multitasking performance.

The phone is powered by a 3700mAh battery with OnePlus' proprietary Fast Charging capability. According to OnePlus, it unlocks as quick as 0.34 seconds and the display is protected by the latest Gorilla Glass 6.
