The new OnePlus 6T is expected to have a handful of compelling features, including dual SIMs dual cameras and, above all, a fingerprint scanner embedded under the display – a first for a major phone brand in the United States.

This is a developing story. What follows is our previous story that draws the known details of this upcoming phone along with rumors. Get ready for more information after the event ends.

In these days of exhaustive leakage and relentless phone dial OnePlus just wants to tell you about its new phone. Specifically, its updated flagship, OnePlus 6T, has some exciting new features – and it will be October 29th. (Yes, it adjusted the original launch date to avoid overlapping with another company that discloses new products on the same day.)

Every year, the Chinese answering machine, OnePlus, amplifies its formula to deliver a top-class Android device, smartphone at a competitive price. The latest release, OnePlus 6, picked up a CNET Editor’s Choice in May 2018 due to its excellent cameras, fast performance, slick design and starting price of $ 529 – less than Google Pixel 2 XL, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus or Apple iPhone X .

This year, OnePlus will deliver a mid-cycle “T” upgrade that has exciting new features, including a fingerprint scanner buried under the phone’s reputed 6.4-inch AMOLED screen. The scanner part has been confirmed but many other specifications – such as the size and technology of the monitor – have not been announced.

OnePlus effectively coordinated the chain killers who created a cottage industry to undermine the carefully choreographed product messages by secret companies like Apple and Google. In fact, publishing of own teasers, Q & As, and in-depth features of upcoming phones has become a hallmark of OnePlus’s marketing strategy. (OnePlus founder Pete Lau recently confirmed more details about the upcoming 6T in his interview with CNET’s Lynn La .)
