OnePlus 6 is the best selling device of the OnePlus and it is only because of the best specs and at this low price. And now OnePlus is working on it’s upgraded version that is OnePlus 6T.
Well right now these are only rumors about OnePlus 6T and there is no official confirmation about the launch of this upgraded version of OnePlus 6. OnePlus only launches upgraded version of it’s device’s only when they have something new to offer to their customers.
Remember that the OnePlus 3T was announced when Qualcomm released the Snapdragon 821, and the OnePlus 5T came when manufacturers were increasingly jumping on the 18:9 display ratio.
But we think company had got many reasons to launch OnePlus 6T, let’s check out some of them.
What we want to see in OnePlus 6T/ Reasons for launch of OnePlus 6T.
1. 512 GB Of Storage
We have even earlier seen this option in Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and that’s the reason we are eagerly waiting for inclusion of this storage in OnePlus 6T too.
As the company doesn’t seem to add an option/place for an expandable storage device. It, becomes must to have an huge inbuilt storage. And this will help the OnePlus fans in storing more data and they can enjoy more 4k videos.
And moreover this will help the device to stand in the competition even after the launch of new devices.
2. No Notch
If we see current market scenario there are two devices which are rocking with No Notch Design and these devices are Vivo Nex and Oppo Find X. And we want OnePlus to join the same fleet.
OnePlus was one of the starting companies which came up with the Notch design and rocked it completely with OnePlus 6 and now we want the company to go with No Notch design. But at the same time we don’t want to have a bezel display.
Update : OnePlus 6T will be having a Drop Notch similar to Vivo V11 Pro.
3. In Screen Fingerprint Scanner
With the launch of Vivo V11 Pro, our expectations for OnePlus 6T have gone higher. And we want the OnePlus 6T to at least have that In Screen Fingerprint Scanner.
If OnePlus chooses to add this one in the screen, then not only the device will look futuristic moreover it will help in designing the device and will help the device to stand out from the crowd.
Update : OnePlus confirmed about In-Screen Fingerprint Scanner.
4. Wireless Charging
Despite having a glass back, the OnePlus 6 doesn’t support wireless charging, which seems like a major omission for a flagship phone.
This is probably a cost-cutting measure – and in a sense it seems reasonable, since we doubt wireless charging is a heavily used feature – but it would be nice to have.
5. Keeping Headphone Jack
One of the biggest reason’s for success of OnePlus 6T was the 3.5mm Headphone Jack. Which most of the companies removed from there devices and which also lead to the decrease in the sales of their devices and hence the increase of OnePlus 6T sales.
And we think if the company keep’s the headphone jack in this device also i.e. OnePlus 6T will be good for their sales. As it has many benefits, like one can charge and listen to their favorite songs at the same time. If headphone jack was not there then they to use an attachment which usually fits at the charging point.
So, these are the features that are expected from the Oneplus that need to be included in Oneplus 6T.
OnePlus 6T Infographic For An Quick Overview
OnePlus 6T : Body And Display
If reports are to be believed then OnePlus 6T is likely to launch in next few months. And there have been few leaks about the device, which suggests that the design of the device will be similar to it’s predecessor OnePlus 6.
But there will be changes in the rear side of the device, like there are many rumors that there will be a in-display finger print scanner. So, the rear one is likely to be removed. Moreover, there are many rumors that OnePlus 6T will be having Triple Camera Setup.
Talking about the display, Oneplus 6T will be having a 6.4 inches HDR display for better resolution. As of now OnePlus uses Full HD display for their devices but due to increase in the size of the screen, the pixel quality will degrade and hence poor resolution will be there. Which will not be good while watching movies and playing games.
OnePlus 6T : Camera
OnePlus 6T is believed to come up with Rear Triple Camera Setup. The camera setup will consist of 16MP + 20MP + 8MP. 8 megapixel camera will be used for depth effect. This unique camera setup will help in getting perfect pictures.
There will be a 25 Megapixel front camera , which will be there in that drop Notch like Vivo V11 Pro. Which will be powered by AI for bokeh and others effects.
OnePlus 6T : Hardware
As we have seen that OnePlus 6 was a major success and one of the main reason for this success was it’s lightning fast processor i.e. Snapdragon 845. As we have earlier said that Oneplus will only launch 6T if they will have a major reason for that and Snapdragon 855 could be one.
It is believed that OnePlus 6T will be coming with Snapdragon 855 which will help it stand above in the market. Moreover it will be the first device to get this processor.
OnePlus 6T will have a 2.8Ghz Octa-core processor. And to cope up with graphics requirements it will be having Adreno 630. Talking about Ram and Storage of the device it will consist of following options 6GB/8GB and 64GB/128GB/216GB/512GB.
Yes, there are chances that company will launch a 512 GB variant and this would not be first one. We have seen the same in Samsung Galaxy Note 9 too.
Talking about the battery, there are rumors that OnePlus 6T will come up with 3,500mAh of battery. Moreover it will be having USB Type-C port for fast charging.
OnePlus 6T : Software
With Android 9.0 (Pie) officially releasing to Pixels and Essential phones already, there are many chances that OnePlus 6T will launch with the new Android version i.e Pie. OnePlus could even be nearly completion with porting OxygenOS onto of the latest Android version since the OnePlus 6 was one of the eleven phones running the Android Pie Beta.
Release Date Of OnePlus 6T ?
The OnePlus 6T release date is likely to be around November 2018, as that’s when the OnePlus 5T arrived last year, and the OnePlus 3T in 2016.
It would be the company’s third ‘T’ variant device, as it looks to bridge the gap between its new-number launches in June.
But there are chances that launch may happen on 15 January 2019. As company released a teaser suggesting that something big will be revealed on 15 January, which could be OnePlus 6T.

So, the expected price of OnePlus 6T will be around $550 (a slight increase from the $529 OnePlus 6).
