- OnePlus 6T is launched at New York (October 29)
- OnePlus 6T India launch date is set for October 30
- OnePlus 6T will be available from November 1 on Amazon
On Monday, OnePlus launched OnePlus 6T at an event held in New York, USA. The smartphone is just an upgrade of the company’s own Flagship OnePlus 6 which was launched 5 months ago.
The major upgrades on OnePlus 6T, when compared with OnePlus 6, are an in-display fingerprint sensor, a teardrop notch, a larger battery, a larger display, Android Pie 9.0 out-of-the-box, improved low-light photography, and smart-boost optimization. The base variant of 6T starts with 128GB onboard storage, so no 64GB variant this time.
We feel there is one downgrade on 6T over 6 is the removal of headphone jack but they did include 3.5mm to Headphone Jack adapter in the box (some companies don’t even include that).
