OnePlus 6T Price And Storage Variants Leaked
The upcoming flagship from OnePlus, the OnePlus 6T will be launching at the end of this month. The device had already caused a stir in the smartphone market when some of its key specifications such as the in-display fingerprint sensor and improved speed were made public. Latest leaks reveal the storage variants of the OnePlus 6T along with their respective prices.
The leak details three variants; a 6 GB / 128 GB, an 8 GB / 128 GB and an 8 GB / 256 GB variant of the upcoming device. According to the leak, these devices will cost Rs 37,999 , Rs 40,999 and Rs 44,999 respectively. If the leaks are true, the OnePlus 6T will be the costliest OnePlus device. However, something worth mentioning is that according to the leak, even the base model has 128 GB of internal storage. This is unlike the OnePlus 6 which had only 64 GB of internal storage in its base model.
The company had earlier hinted at the fact that the OnePlus 6T will be more expensive than its predecessor. However, the company also mentions that the numerous innovations present in the device will surely make it worth the price. The OnePlus 6T has an optical in-display fingerprint sensor and not an ultrasonic in-display sensor. The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is more secure and efficient than its cheaper, optical counterpart. OnePlus, however, says that they have ensured this is the best in terms of both technology and security. Adding that they have worked really hard to make sure it meets ‘OnePlus standards’.
The OnePlus 6T is also expected to be faster than its predecessor and is said to have a water drop notch in its display. But, a small water drop notch means that there will only be enough space for a front-facing camera and not for the required sensors needed to securely unlock the phone using your face. This means that OnePlus will continue to use just the camera for Face Unlock, which is not very secure and won’t work in low-light.
Other expected features include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, a 3,700 mAh battery and Android 9 Pie out of the box. The device might feature wireless charging as well. Another change we will see in the OnePlus 6T is the lack of a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The company has provided a solution for the issue by launching a pair of Type-C Bullets which will be compatible with the device. OnePlus is also providing the Type-C Bullets for free, bundled with the device for those who pre-order the smartphone.
The OnePlus 6T will launch at an event on October 30. The global event will take place in New Delhi and New York and will have an accompanying live stream. The passes for the event are now available online.
