OnePlus 6T Leaked Retail Box Photo Details
According to BGR, the upcoming OnePlus 6T will have a look that is akin to Oppo R17 Pro, which was unveiled recently. Aside from the appearance, there’s a chance that the upcoming flagship killer from OnePlus will borrow several key features from the said handset.
The said leak came from a Chinese tipster that has a Weibo user name图来源于Zaker. Recently, he posted some images of the OnePlus 6T retail box and it has garnered a lot of interest. The alleged photos of the upcoming handset’s box seem to contain all the anticipated markings like the logos and the “Speed” motto. The most interesting is the image printed on the inside portion of the retail box as it indicates the supposed design of the OnePlus 6T.
In case these images are authentic, then the OnePlus 6T will be equipped with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Aside from that, the new “Unlock The Speed” motto that can be perceived in the exterior of the retail box also exists. It also reveals that the handset will feature a teardrop notch situated at the top portion of the device housing single-lens camera.
In addition, the alleged photo also hinted that the OnePlus 6T will have thicker bottom bezel compared to its side and top bezels. It might also have a front-facing speaker situated at the top of the camera. These are the possible features of the OnePlus 6T but since these are just based on leaks and speculations, the details are advised to be taken with a grain of salt.
OnePlus 6T Release Date and Price
When it comes to the OnePlus 6T release date, if the Chinese tech company sticks to its previous launch schedule, then the upcoming flagship killer will be unveiled at some point in November. Nonetheless, it is also worth noting that OnPlus has been teasing a January 15th event on Weibo. Thus, there is also a possibility that the handset will be released during that occasion.
In contrary to the supposed release date above, CNET has stated in its article that the OnePlus 6T will be supported by T-Mobile when it hit the market shelves in October. In case this happens, this device will be the first OnePlus smartphone to come with a US carrier.
As for the price, there were talks stating that the flagship will be released carrying a price tag of $550. Nonetheless, the Chinese tech giant hasn’t confirmed this one yet and is still advised to be taken with skepticism.
