Even after the launch of the most awaited and brilliant smartphone named ‘OnePlus’, the demand of the customers didn’t appear to be satisfied. It has been around 5-6 months since the introduction of OnePlus in the retail market; however, the model went out of stock too soon.

As per the statement of the company, the producers never wanted to wait and let their rivals take over the competition especially if they had the latest technology to craft an amazing set. In the previous days, the definition of the latest model was limited to the enhanced camera sensors, a better processor, long-lasting battery, or simply a big display screen.

In the recent time, an upgrade in the model refers to a new fingerprint sensor, a tiny notch, and not to mention, the company’s collaboration with one of the famous United State’s carrier. And you, believe it or not, this is perhaps one of the major reasons why this company decided to launch its very next handset too soon.

What’s more? The audience is also captivated by how the organization has managed the elimination of the features which it supported previously. Now the question is ‘does earning the title of ‘a strong global player’ refers to losing the patchy beginning that always considered tech-savvy customers as its foremost priority? Let’s find out the answers:

OnePlus 6T design

Though OnePlus 6T appears to be fresher comparing to its predecessor, the company has undeniably managed to craft this latest model as per the recent trends yet there isn’t a lot that has altered over the past 5 months. Apart from the smaller notch and a new fingerprint sensor, OnePlus 6T and OnePlus are quite alike. Let’s see what changes you can spot in this latest upgrade:

For the selfie camera, the hefty notch is now switched to somewhat ‘waterdrop’ dip. This particular designing is mostly noticed in Oppo F9, Realme2 Pro, and Vivo V11. On the edge of the device, you can spot the earpiece which isn’t too tiny to lead to uneasiness.

OnePlus 6t Design

Now coming to the contrary, the design of OnePlus 6T does not support multicolor notification LED which has been considered to be OnePlus 6’s chief features till date. However, the amazing Display notch that makes the OLED screen, illuminates to demonstrate notification details. But, as this feature is not always active, it becomes troublesome for the users to know if there are essential notification and alerts.

Display screen: The display notch of OnePlus 6T is a bit larger than its predecessor i.e. 6.41 inches. Putting both the sets i.e. OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T together, you may spot that the latest device’s base ‘chin’ has somewhat diminished that has let the thin edge present around the screen lock appear to be same in all the 4 borders.

The company has announced to sell the model with a pre-fixed screen guard that doesn’t appear to complement the notch as well as curves of the display. So with an in-display fingerprint sensor, this new variant by the company is believed to gain a lot of popularity across the globe.

According to the recent sources, the company has been engaged in carrying out multiple experiments with this specific technology since last year. During the time of the ultimate launch, the new model will be sold in Midnight Black and Mirror Black color.

However, considering the fame of the company, its users are anticipating to avail diverse color variants in the future. All in all, the recent model is almost identical to its predecessor including the alert slider, Nano-SIM tray, volume options, and other essential designs remained to be similar.

OnePlus 6T specification

As the device is going to be launched too soon after the release of OnePlus 6, it isn’t surprising to say that there aren’t some major modifications made in respect to the specifications. Apart from the missing LED notification feature, OnePlus 6T doesn’t comprise 3.5mm headphone jack. As per the company’s claim, to draw the room for housing a large battery and the in-display fingerprint sensor, it was essential to avoid a headphone jack.

The device is powered by Snapdragon 845 processor and features the inbuilt storage configuration of 128GB along with 6GB of RAM. With the resolution screen being 1080*2340 pixels, the battery of the cell ranges from 3300mAh to 3700mAh (depending upon its variation you choose). There are no amendments found in terms of its camera, sensors, aperture, size, and even megapixel count. What’s more? You’ll have a GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GLONASS, and Volte. Let’s discuss the detailed performance and specification of OnePlus 6T:

OnePlus 6T battery capacity

Undoubtedly, OnePlus 6T stands up for all the expectation we had in regards to its general performance. A host of application and games were installed easily on the device and we didn’t face any challenge in the regular usage of the same. While activating the camera and putting the mobile on a charge, the rear end of the device warms up to some extent however it doesn’t become too hot to be touched.

OnePlus 6t Performance

A majority of the people are interested to know its latest in-display fingerprint sensor but, to be honest, the feature isn’t that great as expected. It’s definitely beautiful to showcase but it is quite annoying for the regular users. If you aim to buy a phone which has a great aesthetic appeal, this device is the right fit for you. But when it comes to functionality, there isn’t a plethora of addition or improvements observed.


Now talking about the battery life, Asphalt 9, as well as PUBG, was played on the handset and the results appeared to be quite well. The device features enough battery power to let the users operate the listed games and watch your very favorite streaming videos without the battery getting drained so quickly. But again the phone warmed up after half an hour of playing. With a battery capacity of 3300mAh, the device had 15% battery left even after the 2 hours of continuous gaming and operating multiple social media applications simultaneously. It also allows fast charging feature.

OnePlus 6T camera and sensors

OnePlus 6t Camera

Though OnePlus 6T neglected the recent camera trend i.e. the inclusion of a 3rd camera at the rear end of the handset, it provides a decent quality camera sensor that captures high-quality, sharp, and clear photos. The primary rear end camera sensors are 16-megapixels whereas another one is of 20-megapixels. Besides that, the Night mode feature of the model allows you to capture some brilliant shots under the dim light and dark places. The photo quality was amazing in the daylight. The shots captured demonstrated the detailed story of the object and you can also click fair pictures under the sunlight.

OnePlus 6T memory

In terms of storage and Random Access Memory (RAM), OnePlus 6T comes in 3 variants each featuring different memory configuration. While the cheapest variant of the model comprises 6GB of RAM paired with 128GB of inbuilt storage, its mid-variant features 6GB of RAM and same internal memory. The last one comes with 8GB of RAM together with 256GB of memory.

Final words

The in-display fingerprint sensor and the smaller notch has definitely attracted the OnePlus 6 fans, however, the smartphone had to substitute the 3.55mm headphone jack which is indeed essential and features to avail a standard sound quality. The device works well in terms of its processor, battery life, display screen, RAM, an inbuilt memory, and the camera quality. However, it could have set a benchmark by crafting a 3rd rear end camera that has been currently observed in the famous handsets.

All in all, if you’re looking out for a smartphone that can help you play a wide variety of games, view full-screen movies, capture a detailed shot, and store ample applications, this device can turn out to be the best choice. Good Luck!
