12:59 PM

So we’re all expecting for the OnePlus 6T to arrive in the second half of this year. During the past few months, we heard some rumors and leaks about what features that the said smartphone will come with.

What are these rumored specs and features? Well, let’s review them.

In-display Fingerprint Scanner

Although its predecessor – OnePlus 6 – features a fingerprint scanner mounted on its back, the upcoming OnePlus 6T will be featuring a fingerprint sensor on its display. In fact, this has also been pretty much confirmed by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau – according to a report.

Waterdrop Notch

With the predecessor, it featured a notch design to which many didn’t like it, while some were simply not bothered by it. But for the upcoming model, it is reportedly going to feature a waterdrop notch design similar to that found on the Oppo R17 and Oppo F9, thus increasing its screen-to-body ratio.

Goodbye 3.5mm Headphone Jack

The upcoming smartphone is going to ditch its headphone jack. This was confirmed by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei on an interview with Tech Radar to which he claims will allow the company to add more new technology or improvements into the phone, like having it house a larger battery for more battery life.

In addition to this, last week, the company also announced its Type-C Bullets earphones. According to reports, it will feature the same price tag of the Bullets V2 which currently sits at $19.99.

Triple Camera Setup

To all those tech enthusiasts who love taking pictures, you will be delighted with the OnePlus 6T because it is said to come with a triple rear camera setup. Apparently, it will be similar to the camera setup of the Oppo R17 Pro which features a primary 20MP unit, a second 12MP telephoto or low-light sensor, and a third TOF 3D camera.

A New Design

Given that the said phone will be featuring a waterdrop notch and the in-display fingerprint sensor, and the absence of the headphone jack, we’re expecting that it will look different compared to its predecessor. However, the difference between the two won’t be so drastic – just a few alterations.

Other Specs/Features

The OnePlus 6T is also rumored to come with a Snapdragon 845 chip, water resistance rating, wireless charging, and faster charging. For its memory, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory storage is said to be featured. There were also talks about a possible 512GB variant.

When Is It Coming?

Regarding its release, there are actually two rumored dates. The first date was taken from this e-commerce site called GizTop which claims that the said phone won’t be available until October 16, 2018. The second date is based on the release date of the OnePlus 5T which was released back in November of 2017.

How Much Will It Cost?

With GizTop, the site claims that it will be $569. Meanwhile, other reports suggest that it will be at least $529 / £469.
