OnePlus 6T Specs & Price: A Smaller Notch, In-display Fingerprint Reader

After almost unlimited promotional campaign and some good leaks, the OnePlus 6T has finally been unveiled six months after its predecessor, OnePlus 6 entered the market.

About half of the OnePlus 6T’s improvements are from its hardware while others come through software. The former include a smaller water drop-styled notch, an in-display fingerprint scanner and a larger battery. The latter include improvements to the camera and the performance.

The 6.4-inch screen of the OnePlus 6T is only slightly larger than the 6.28-inch of its predecessor but visibly taller when pitted side by side. Most importantly, the bottom bezel is even thinner now. The OnePlus 6T has visibly smaller top and bottom bezels than its predecessor, thanks in part to the new notch.

The OnePlus 6T is powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM of its predecessor, however OnePlus has improved things on the OxygenOS side of things with a new Gaming mode and Smart Boost.

You won’t see it, but the fingerprint scanner sits in the bottom half of the OnePlus 6T’s screen, right where your thumb would naturally rest. The phone will display a fingerprint icon on the spot you need to put your finger once the phone is picked up.

OnePlus added a larger 3,700mAh battery to the 6T – a 12% upgrade over the 3,300mAh unit found in the OnePlus 6.

The cameras are identical in hardware to the OnePlus 6, but differ in software. There are two on the back – a main 16MP f/1.7 OIS and a secondary 20MP f/1.7 that’s upscaled to produce 2x telephoto shots. On the front there’s a 16MP f/2.0.

The duo on the back is tuned to produce better HDR images than its predecessor and there’s a new Nightscape feature – similar to Huawei’s Night Mode and the Pixel 3’s Night Sight – it will try and create brighter low-light images with lower noise.

As part of OxygenOS under Android 9 Pie the OnePlus 6T has support for all manner of Android navigation – OnePlus’ own gesture system (quite similar to Apple’s gesture-based navigation), Android 9 Pie’s native (pill) gesture navigation and the old three-button navigation.
