OnePlus 6T Comes Down to All-Time Low Price of Rs 27,999 and Here’s Why You Should Get One

The OnePlus 6T with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage is now selling for Rs 27,999 which is a discount of Rs 13,000 compared to the launch price of Rs 40,999

  • The OnePlus 6T was launched in India starting at Rs 37,999
  • At Rs 27,999, the OnePlus 6T has the best hardware on any phone under Rs 30,000

It has been a while since OnePlus sold a smartphone for less than Rs 30,000 in India. The OnePlus 3T was the last handset from the Chinese brand to retail for less than Rs 30,000 at Rs 29,999. The prices of OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 6 series stood over Rs 30,000 and even crossed the Rs 40,000 mark. OnePlus became India’s top premium smartphone brand with the help of OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T, which are now succeeded by OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus usually discontinues its older smartphones once it launched a new model, but that did not happen for the first time as the company is still selling the OnePlus 6T, but at an extremely low price. The OnePlus 6T is now available with a discount of Rs 13,000 on Amazon India and it can be purchased for Rs 27,999, down from the launch price of Rs 40,999 for the 8GB+128GB storage model. Here’s why you can still purchase the OnePlus 6T in India.

OnePlus 6T is the Best Phone Under Rs 30,000 in India

The OnePlus 6T was launched in India in October 2018, so it’s just over six months since the phone’s arrival. The phone sports glass body and it comes in two colour options- Mirror Black and Midnight Black. There’s the McLaren Edition with Orange colour hue on the back, but that costs Rs 41,999. Talking about the core specifications of the OnePlus 6T, it has a 6.41-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display on the front with Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Underneath, we have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of onboard storage. OnePlus seems to have phased out the 6GB+128GB storage model of the OnePlus 6T. The price of the 8GB+128GB model is Rs 27,999, while the 8GB+256GB model can be purchased for Rs 31,999. So at Rs 27,999, you’re getting 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage which is almost on par with the premium variant of Poco F1.

As for the cameras, there are two sensors on the back of 16MP+20MP and a 16MP front-facing camera. The cameras on the OnePlus 6T were improved over the last six months with constant software updates, but they won’t match the performance of OnePlus 7 Pro though. The phone offers in-display fingerprint scanner, lacks 3.5mm headphone jack and has a 3700mAh battery with support for fast charging. Lastly, it runs Android 9 Pie based OxygenOS.

Why You Should Get the OnePlus 6T at Rs 27,999?

Well, it’s simply because of the value for money proportion. The OnePlus 6T’s 8GB+128GB variant was launched for Rs 40,999, but it’s now available for Rs 27,999, so there’s a massive Rs 13,000 discount on the handset. Now you might ask us, there’s the OnePlus 7 at Rs 32,999, and why should one pick the OnePlus 6T ahead of that. The OnePlus 7 is a newer smartphone and it’s available on Amazon India right now, but there’s a gap of Rs 5,000 between the two phones. Also, the variant of OnePlus 7 priced at Rs 32,999 offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

The OnePlus 6T has the best hardware in its price range right now. It performs exceptionally well thanks to the software optimisation, the camera performance has been improved over the last few months and it now offers reliable battery life too again because of the optimisations done with the software.

The OnePlus 7 offers slightly tweaked design, UFS 3.0 storage, stereo speakers, Snapdragon 855 SoC, 48MP rear camera, upgraded front-facing camera, better in-display fingerprint scanner and will get equal software updates as the OnePlus 6T.

As I said, the OnePlus 6T is still the best phone to purchase under Rs 30,000, but if you can stretch your budget above Rs 30,000, you should get the OnePlus 7 itself as it’s a flagship phone of 2019 with better hardware.

The Poco F1’s premium variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage is also available for Rs 27,999/Rs 28,999, but the OnePlus 6T is a better phone over the two. The only drawback with the 6T compared to the Poco F1 is the lack of 3.5mm headphone jack which might trouble some of the mobile gamers out there.

The price. The 6T was released 6 to 8 months ago, as that’s what oneplus does. They release a phone every 6 months. But oneplus is becoming a money hungry company nowadays. Little value and a hefty price. Asus Zenfone 6 is the best vfm phone today with 855 SoC.

Let it release first. Sadly Nokia is not launching their products to keep One Plus on their toes. I hope Snapdragon 675 and Snapdragon 730 devices from Nokia will under 20000 in India by the end of the year. Realme 4 Pro is coming before September with Amoled display and Snapdragon 730. I hope Realme 4 comes with P90 for 11000-12000 with bigger battery before that.


asus has worst software support from day 1 from azmpm1 & m2 .they managed to cripple the devices to its core.. i know custom roms r thr …but stock is expected to bug free. i doubt 6z will have good support baware.

There is difference between update policy of Asus Zenfone 5Z and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 & M2. Only Redmi devices and Honor devices get good stable updates till now. I have experienced same with Honor 6X/7X/8X/9i/8.


I don’t think so….Vs Pocofone One plus 6t has Super Amoled… Plus under display finger print scanner… better design…less bezel… Guarantee two Android update
