And the same will continue this year, according to a new report from CNET. The OnePlus 6T is launching this fall in the United States, and for the first time in the country, OnePlus will be partnering with a carrier. It’s rumoured that OnePlus will be selling the 6T will be offered as both an unlocked version and a carrier-only model. The price of the OnePlus 6T is expected to start at $550 (approx. Rs 38,400) for the unlocked version. Below we have listed five improvements which might be spotted on the yet to be announced OnePlus 6T.

Oppo F9/Oppo R17 Like Waterdrop Notch

Over the last couple of years, OnePlus has been carrying design cues from Oppo smartphones. For the unaware, Oppo is the parent company of OnePlus. The OnePlus 3 was the last uniquely designed smartphone from OnePlus. The OnePlus 5 was an Oppo R11 lookalike, while the OnePlus 6 looks like the Oppo R15 from the front.

Now Oppo is gearing up to launch the Oppo F9 and Oppo R17 series in India and China respectively. The Oppo F9 features a water drop notch, as Oppo calls and it’s one of the best notch implementations on a smartphone to date.

Wireless Charging

OnePlus 6 was the first phone by OnePlus to fully embrace the glass front and back in its entirety. It was expected that OnePlus would enable the wireless charging on the device. However, it seems that OnePlus 6T might be the device which will eventually come with Wireless Charging support.

Proper Water Resistance

Another gap between the premium phones by Samsung, Apple and OnePlus is the absence of ingress protection certificate. The OnePlus 6 was declared to be merely splash proof, in its next iteration, the OnePlus 6T is expected to come with an IP67 and IP68 rating meaning that the new phone will be truly waterproof. Some teardowns of the phone also reveal an impressive number of gaskets and rubber seals hinting towards this direction.

Bigger Battery

Last time with the OnePlus 5T, the OEM did not ship a battery improvement in the device. However, a year before that, the OnePlus 3T did come with a 400mAh improvement over the OnePlus 3. Now with the OnePlus 6T, the manufacturer might again ship in an improved battery. Although there might not be a significant bump in battery life, it is expected to please the OnePlus 6T buyers.

Android P

With the last Developer Beta version approaching completion, and the OnePlus 6T expected to launch in November we feel there is ample time for the OnePlus development team to shape the Android P stock experience into the OxygenOS. Keeping that in mind there is a chance that OnePlus 6T will come with Android P.
