The company confirmed the details of a post on Weibo, discovered by GSMArena which states that the decision might not be good for consumers.

2/10/18: Official images ( under ) by OnePlus 6T have appeared online, confirming the smartphone’s teenage tears and its glossy and dull black color options. Published by WinFuture gives high resolution images a good look at the 6T dual camera sensor, which gives rise to early speculation that it will pack a P20 Pro rival’s triple camera set. OnePlus has expelled yet another official teaser ( under ) for its incoming OnePlus 6T, confirming the phone’s highly hyped in-display fingerprint scanner and its edge-to-edge display. The short video does not give much else away, but earlier rumors point to a 6.4 inch AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 845 inputs and a vertically mounted dual camera installation.

27/9/18: A new OnePlus 6T mega leak, courtesy of @ OnLeaks, shows incoming handset from all angles. above ) and a 360-degree video ( under ) shared with MySmartPrice confirms the OnePlus 6T Oppo-esque waterfall that sits on top of its 6.4in Optic AMOLED screen which has a 1080×2340 resolution and a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio. Also confirmed is the smartphone’s vertically stacked 16MP + 20MP dual camera setup, its lack of 3.5mm headphone jack and, due to its lack of physical sensor, its screen-connected fingerprint scanner.

The leak, which is the most important thing we have seen, also claims that the handset will measure 8.2mm thick (slightly thicker than OnePlus 6) and pack a 2.8GHz Snapdragon 845 CPU, Adreno 630 GPU and either 6GB or 8GB of RAM together with 64GB and 128GB of storage space.

25/9/18: There is not much we do not know yet about OnePlus 6T thanks to the noteworthy tip of the Chinese answering machine. Thanks to a new leak on Weibo, we can finally see what the handset looks like.

Pictures published on the Chinese Social Network ( under ) claim to show OnePlus 6T with all its glory, complete with a teardrop-like similar Oppo R17 and a fingerprint sensor on the display. [19659002]

But before you get too excited, there’s no snap on the back of your smartphone, or any sign of any OnePlus branding beyond its “Never Settle” background. And as spotted by Gizmodo there is a hole for what appears to be a headphone jack on the lower right side – despite OnePlus’s confirmation that the device would be the first to pull the 3.5mm port .

20/9/18: An official teaser video for OnePlus 6T has hyped the incoming flagship fingerprint scanner.

The video ( under ), which star performer Amitabh Bachchan, the company’s brand ambassador in India, refers to the handset’s screen transmitter, which OnePlus confirmed would come to 6T earlier this month.

“We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and the screen lock decreases the number of steps to complete the action,” said a free OnePlus staff.

“Adding this feature as an add-on to other options for unlocking lock-up features like face lock allows users to unlock the screen in a way that is most effective for them.”

The clip also debases speculation that OnePlus 6T will follow the footsteps of Samsung’s recently announced Galaxy A7 with a three-lens rear camera configuration, showing instead the handset’s dual rear cameras.

Not much else is confirmed during 15 seconds of teaser, but we already know that OnePlus 6T will contain Snapdragon 845 internals, a larger battery than its OnePlus 6 predecessor, and there’s no headphone jack. OnePlus has confirmed that OnePlus 6T will be its first smartphone to unmount the headphone jack.

In an interview with TechRadar OnePlus founder Carl Pei revealed that “Next OnePlus Handset” will discard the 3.5 mm connector for the benefit of USB-C.

He says that the “controversial” decision was due to the fact that almost 60 percent of current OnePlus owners already have wireless headphones.

“We found 59 percent of our community that already owned wireless headphones earlier this year – and that was before we launched our Bullet Wireless headphones,” he said.

And Pei claims that, by removing the jack, the company releases more space to put “more new technology” into the product and notes that 6T will offer a larger battery than its OnePlus 6 predecessor. This is also likely to be a node to the 6T fingerprint sensor, as OnePlus confirmed earlier in the month.

“It [removing the headphone jack] was a very controversial decision. We do not do it and because everyone else is. We think now is the right time because it will benefit the majority of our users while the disadvantage is low. “

Thank you, Pei confirmed that OnePlus will have a 3.5mm to USB-C customized in the box. Since then, the company has released release of new Type C headphones along with OnePlus 6T, which will be priced at £ 15.99 in the UK.

12/9/18: ] A dubious website has listed OnePlus 6T for pre-order before its reputable October discovery.

GizTop, a Chinese e-commerce site linked to the blog GizmoChina lists next-generation OnePlus flagship with a price of $ 569 (about 440 GBP) and claims that 6T will start delivering on October 16th.

It also gives us a complete decline of the handset’s specifications, so if the listing is correct, OnePlus is unlikely to have many surprises in the store.

The handset will pack a 6.4in 2340×1080 AMOLED screen with a 91.6 percent relationship between the monitor and body, according to GizTop, which will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor parade with an Adreno 630 GPU.

OnePlus 6T will also include three rear cameras (20MP, 12MP and TOF 3D), a 25MP front-facing camera, 6GB 8GB RAM, 64GB / 128GB / 256GB storage, Google’s Android 9.0 Pie OS and a “light-sensitive fingerprint sensor under the display “.

Of course, we would recommend taking this leak with a powerful pinch of salt.

11/9/18: OnePlus has confirmed that its incoming OnePlus 6T will be the first to be presented with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Considering CNET, the company said that its implementation of the technology – so far similar to the Vivo Nex and Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS – will be noticeably labeled “Screen Unlock”.

“We unlock our phones several times a day and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action,” a OnePlus staff said the site and noted that the technology was originally the debut on OnePlus 5T.

“Adding this feature as an add-on to other options for unlocking lock-up features like face lock allows users to unlock the screen in a way that is most effective for them.”

In order to accommodate the new technology, the design of OnePlus 6T will be “somewhat tweaked” compared with the predecessor, with the incoming flagship set to be slightly thicker with re-arranged internals.

5/9/18: It’s far from your ever cynical INQ to believe in everything we’re looking at a blurry screenshot but this is a little exciting.

OnePlus 6T far from being an incremental change, as 5T seems to flank a whole new set of features that are likely to really erect anyone excluded for OnePlus 6 a few months ago.

An image of what is alleged to be packaging from the upcoming device, expected next month, proposes that 6T boasts an i-fingerprint sensor and a “teardrop” cutter designed to record as little screen capability as possible.

The image that appeared on Weibo does not show a photograph that immediately calls alarm blocks, but is intricate enough to suggest that if it’s a fake, it’s a ruddy good.

After moving the fingerprint reader from front to back forward over the last few iterations, moving it to the screen itself would not only be a major one for OnePlus but for the mobile industry as a whole, following Galaxy Note 9 and upcoming iPhone XS- the series looks both out to not commit the technology that has been promised forever.

We tend to take such revelations with a pinch of the old calcium carbonate, but since this Weibo user has previously got it right, we will hold our throats and say that this is true . Perhaps. Possibly. Ish.

Other specifications that we can expect are Android 9.0 Pie in the form of its Oxygen OS variant,

Although officially 6T does not exist, we actually expect it a month early, October this time around, so the date it January 15 mentioned in the post is mysterious.

It may be that for the first time it will be carrier exclusively first. Previously, O2 has had non-exclusive rights in Britain, but there are rumors that T-Mobile has snagged it for the United States, which may be exclusive. More news when we get it. μ

20/8/18: OnePlus 6T will be launched in October this year as the company’s first smartphone offered through a US network.

So says CNET quoting people familiar with launch plans, reports that the Chinese company’s next “T” edition flagship will be offered through the T-Mobile network in the states.

T-Mobile would be the exclusive OnePlus launcher in the United States, which sells the phone through its stores and website, CNET reports, while OnePlus still sells an unlocked version of 6T via its own website.

OnePlus has reported a preliminary agreement with the US operator, who will see the company release a “specific version of OnePlus 6T optimized for T-Mobile’s network”, which will include support for the operator’s Extended Range LTE technology. [19659002] The only hook can get the necessary “technical approval” for use on the network according to CNET sources, which may cause a delay in the launch of the carrier.

Still about rumors It’s true, this will be an important affair for OnePlus, which has not yet made much of a name for itself in the United States because of a lack of carrier background. A partnership with T-Mobile would ensure greater visibility for its product than the direct sales already offered through its own retail channels.

The report does not tell much about OnePlus 6T, but it is noted that the handset will cost the same as its OnePlus 6 predecessor. This means that you will be able to download a 64GB model for £ 419, with 128GB and 256GB variants that collect 519 and 569 kr. Respectively.

While CNET has no word on the handset’s specifications or features, earlier rumors suggest that OnePlus 6T will be the first smartphone to have Qualcomm’s next generation Snapdragon 855 processor, while others claim it could have a everything -Display design, with a pop-up selfie camera like Vivo Nex. μ
