OnePlus is set to launch the most awaited OnePlus 6T on October 29 globally, and in India on October 30. Just a few days ahead of the launch, the OnePlus 6T has been leaked in all its glory. The smartphone has been picturised in some live images, and the full specs sheet of the phone has also been leaked. Both the images and the spec-sheet of the phone have been leaked by a Twitter user named Ishan Agarwal. We already know some of the upgrades which the company is bringing with the OnePlus 6T, but this leak has revealed a few more new features which we haven’t heard before. First of all, the OnePlus 6T will have an upgraded 20MP selfie camera on the front as opposed to the 16MP shooter we saw on the OnePlus 6. Also, the 6T will be the second smartphone to launch with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 after the Oppo R17. While the Oppo R17 was exclusive to China, OnePlus will be bringing the tech to masses out there.
So far, a lot has already been talked about the OnePlus 6T. In fact, the company itself has also confirmed a lot about the phone. OnePlus 6T has already been confirmed to come with a waterdrop style notch, Snapdragon 845 chipset and in-display fingerprint sensor. Overall, the design of the OnePlus 6T is expected to be similar to that of the OnePlus 6, especially from the back. The new leak also goes in line with the same. OnePlus has also confirmed that the 6T will come with a much better battery setup compared to the OnePlus 6. The confusion is around the variants that OnePlus is planning to bring.
OnePlus 6T: Specifications and Features
Previous reports had hinted that the base model of the OnePlus 6T would have a 64GB of internal storage. But now, the new leak suggests that the smartphone will not have a 64GB model at all. Instead, the base model of the phone will have 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The new leak shows the details of the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage model.
According to the leak, the OnePlus 6T will come with a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. The leak suggests that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage which can not be expanded via a microSD card. Earlier reports had suggested that the OnePlus 6T will pack up to 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage, much like the OnePlus 6. The phone will be backed by a 3700mAh battery. Like any other OnePlus phone, this one will also come with Dash charging support.
On the camera front, the leak suggests that the OnePlus 6T will sport a dual rear camera setup. On the back, the phone will include a primary sensor of 16MP and a secondary sensor of 20MP paired with f/1.7 aperture. On the front, the OnePlus 6T is listed with 20MP selfie shooter. The leak also reveals that the OnePlus 6T will be the first phone from the company to run Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box. To recall, the OnePlus 6 was launched with Android Oreo, but months later was upgraded to Pie.
OnePlus 6T: Rumoured Pricing and Availability
In India, the OnePlus 6T will launch on October 30 and the phone will be available for purchase starting November 2, exclusively via Amazon India, Croma and Reliance Digital Stores. The rumoured pricing of the OnePlus 6T’s base variant is Rs 37,999, followed by the 8GB+128GB variant at Rs 40,999 and the premium 8GB+256GB variant at Rs 44,999.
