OnePlus 6T launched with in-display fingerprint and tiny notch at $549

Right now, the phone has been launched in the United States, but in India, the launch event is scheduled for tomorrow, where the official Indian price will be revealed.

"There has never been a better time to trade up to the OnePlus 6T".

The best news? The base model (6GB RAM, 128GB storage) is priced just $549, followed by $579 (8GB RAM, 128GB storage) and $629 (8GB RAM, 256GB storage) versions. This model will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and it will come with 6 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM options.

The wait for the OnePlus 6T is set to come to an end. Unlike its predecessor, the 6T has a tiny waterdrop notch for the front camera.

While the phone is a massive upgrade from the OnePlus 6, it's taking a step forward or backward too, depending on who you ask. It flaunts 6.41 inches of AMOLED display with 2340 X 1080 pixel resolutions. However, to ensure users find it easy to cope up with the missing 3.5mm port, the company is bundling USB Type-C Bullets headphones with the phone as well. Or, put another way, is OnePlus's water resistance good enough, and worth saving £200?

Talking about the camera, it carries a dual camera setup on the back which is essentially the same as that of OnePlus 6. The notch has the three-in-one ambient/distance/RGB sensor and the front-facing 16MP camera placed inside.

Last month, Facebook removed 82 pages , accounts and groups tied to Iran aimed at stirring up social strife in the US and the U.K. It carried out an even broader sweep in August, removing 652 pages, groups and accounts linked to Russian Federation and Iran.

For those who can not attend the OnePlus launch event in New Delhi, there's still a way to be a part of the unveiling. However, the company also announced that NightScape is also coming to this phone in a future software upgrade. This is because, as of Android Pie, the Recents app overview is built into the Launcher application alongside OnePlus' gestures. To recall, the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro arrived with Pie a couple of weeks ago.

OnePlus 6T Screen Unlock: Can it be used for other functions?

For an iPhone 7 Plus with 256GB of storage, OnePlus is offering customers up to £160.

The OnePlus 6 on the other hand starts at $529 / £469 (around AU$750) for a version with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, so that's slightly less than the starting price of the 6T but with half the storage. Now, this is a slight increase in the price than the OnePlus 6. Furthermore, the company opted for a fingerprint scanner inside the display, meaning that the camera will be the only feature found on the rear of the device. With those expected changes, the phone still carries the same internal power that the OnePlus 6 did, but the display, the battery, and the fingerprint experience now has changed.

However, there should be some improvements to the OnePlus 6T's camera under the surface, as it apparently uses a new algorithm to optimize the settings for faces, text, food and night scenes.
