The OnePlus 6T, as a revision, is one of the most anticipated phones to be launched this year. The phone is the successor to the OnePlus 6 which has proven to be a tough competition for even flagship devices. The update is in the typical OnePlus fashion, but this time around, it features a lot of changes.

What Has Changed

In terms of look and feel, the OnePlus 6T  is slightly different. The phone weighs a tad bit more than the OnePlus 6 and is also a bit thicker. However, when you hold and use it, it has the same feeling with its glass finish and good build quality. The 6T has a larger, 6.41 inch display, making it a bit taller than the OnePlus 6. The display sports a much smaller water-drop notch which houses the 3-in-1 ambient, distance/RGB sensor and front-facing camera.

The fingerprint sensor on the phone is now present under the display, which is one of the biggest changes brought around by the 6T. Using the sensor present on the display takes some time to get used to, but it is very responsive. One must make sure to use the entire thumb while setting up the fingerprint sensor. If you use just the tip of your thumb, the sensor might not be able to read your thumb when you use it. Although we need more time to test the fingerprint sensor completely, we are sure of the fact that it is better than other in-display sensors we have tested before. You can also continue to hold the area of the fingerprint sensor to access a quick access app drawer which is customisable, to get to your favourite apps.

Another big change is the lack of the 3.5 mm headphone jack. The fact that most of the companies are doing the same, and now that OnePlus has also adopted it, might hint at the fact that the headphone jack will be obsolete in some time. Another physical change is the ability to long press the power button to launch the Google Assistant. Which is similar to activating Siri on the iPhone.

The phone has a new Smart Boost feature which improves the app cold start speed by 5 to 20 percent. Its does so by storing the data from frequently used apps in the phones RAM. Currently, the device applies it to gaming apps but the feature reach other apps with future updates.

Under The Hood

The internals on the OnePlus 6T are the same as the OnePlus 6. It runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC with the Adreno 630 GPU. The device has 6 GB and 8 GB RAM variants. There is a slight change in terms of internal storage with the OnePlus 6T having a 128 GB base model and another 256 GB variant. Under the hood, the OnePlus 6T packs a bigger, 3,700 mAh battery.

The OnePlus 6T has the same 16 MP + 20 MP f/1.7 dual camera setup as the OnePlus 6. The front camera is also, the same 16 MP f/2.0 sensor as before. However, the company has made software improvements which it claims have improved camera performance. The device has a new Nightscape mode which claims to offer better images in low light conditions without losing sharpness and improving the image output. The device also offers overall improvements in terms of image quality and dynamic range.

Overall, when compared to the OnePlus 6, the one can’t really see a big difference in terms of performance.

Price & Availability In India

The OnePlus 6T has been launched at a starting price of $ 549, globally. The Indian launch of the device is set for the 30th of October. The 6 GB + 128 GB variant costs Rs 36,999 in India. The OnePlus 6T ships bundled with the OnePlus Type-C Bullets for free. Additionally, you can avail Rs 1000 cash back on Citi Bank cards and a Rs 2000 discount on ICICI cards.
