OnePlus 6T Set To Launch On 17th October In India
The alleged invite for the upcoming OnePlus 6T launch has surfaced online. The invite suggests that the OnePlus 6T will launch in India on 17th October. This leak seems viable as it matches the previously rumoured launch date.
The same source provides us with 2 other images of the alleged device. The recently leaked poster from OnePlus has already given us a good look at the water drop notch on the device. However, the images point out to a surprising new feature. A triple camera setup on the OnePlus 6T.
Rumours regarding the triple camera were around for a long time but were laid to rest with some renders and a TVC which is being aired regularly. These new images do make us wonder as to whether the advertisement is hiding something. In the ad, brand ambassador Amitabh Bachchan can be seen covering the back of the phone. This is the exact placement of the triple camera in the leaked images. Hence, once can speculate that OnePlus might be holding this new feature back.
Another big highlight is the in-display fingerprint sensor. This was first revealed when a retail box of the device surfaced online. The in- display sensor is reported to use Qualcomm’s ultrasonic technology which allows you to access the device even if your hands are oily or wet.
Based on the leaks and our expectations, here are the specifications. The device is expected to retain the Snapdragon 845 SoC paired with 8GB of RAM. However, OnePlus might offer higher storage by offering a 512GB variant since the devices do not have memory card support.
OnePlus earlier confirmed they will get rid of the 3.5 mm headphone jack. On the flip side, they now offer the bullets headphones with a Type-C connector.
The device will sport a 6.41 inch Super AMOLED display with the waterdrop notch. OnePlus might bump the battery of the new device from the current 3300 mAh battery. We also expect to see flagship features such as wireless charging and IP rating on the new device. The OnePlus 6T is reported to run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.
Finally, OnePlus will launch the device on 17th October in India and reveal all the specifications and features then.
