OnePlus 6T official, and it’s launching at T

As usual, there's no expandable storage option you can still pop-up a second SIM onto the device.

With the most-immersive screen experience, OnePlus 6T will have improved performance on the antenna.

The OnePlus 6T will be available in Midnight Black and Mirror Black, though knowing OnePlus, they will end up launching more colors of the device a few weeks down the line. The premium SKU (8GB/256GB) will set you back £579. The phone is available with shiny or matte black finishes.

The phone adds an under-glass fingerprint sensor, the second to reach the United Kingdom market after the (much more expensive) Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

One of those in line to buy the new OnePlus 6T was on vacation in New York City from Bogota, Colombia. OnePlus actually wanted to integrate the fingerprint sensor into the display with the 5T a year ago, but there was no reliable and fast technology. However, the rear camera sensor remains the same as that of its predecessor. While biometric face unlock is not considered secure enough for Android payments, fingerprints apparently are.

OnePlus 6T, as the name suggests, is an upgrade to the OnePlus 6. The 6T sports a 6.4-inch display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. There's also a bigger 3,700mAh battery under the hood, 20 per cent larger than the 3,300mAh battery inside the OnePlus 6.

Subtropical Storm Oscar forms in Atlantic; no threat to land
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles from the center and tropical-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles. In a forecast advisory, they said Oscar could become a hurricane as its track begins to curve toward the North Atlantic.

Another change is the speaker has moved to the top of the device.

Out back you'll find two cameras: a 16MP primary sensor (Sony IMX 519, f/1.7) and a secondary 20MP sensor (Sony IMX 376K, f/1.7). Unfortunately, we can not yet evaluate how well the software optimizations work with low light at the current time. OnePlus has eschewed the Huawei approach of shouty AI and unworldly saturation (we must note that AI is turned off by default in the latest Huawei Mate 20).

To make Nightscape work, OnePlus uses a multi-phase process (mixing HDR, detail optimization and noise reduction). OnePlus, probably with the help of the parent company BBK suppliers and Co, has managed to shrink the notch to a minimum. If a notch can ever be subtle.

Arguably, it is the arrival of OnePlus in the USA that is the biggest news about this handset launch, and T-Mobile has not only an exclusivity deal, but also a special offer that means customers can buy the OnePlus 6T for less than half price.

The company also unveiled other popular accessories such as the OnePlus Bullets earphones, that comes as wired or wireless, and the OnePlus Explorer Backpack. This particular improvement will also be available on the OnePlus 6. Notably, however, there is no wireless charging so you'll still need to rely on a wire for juice. It will also ship with Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. Is this a deal-breaker in 2018? It's better to wait for OnePlus 7.
