The OnePlus 6T has been officially Launched. The new device has as expected a larger screen, a battery with more capacity and a fingerprint sensor placed under the screen. The OnePlus 6T can be ordered from 6 November.
The OLED screen of the OnePlus 6T is 6.41 inch and has a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 (403 pixels per inch). We opted for a small notch in the form of a water drop, in which a 16-megapixel camera is incorporated. The design is largely unchanged compared to the OnePlus 6 and consists of a glass front with an aluminum back, so there is no support for wireless charging. Under the hood, we find the Snapdragon 845-soc from Qualcomm.
At the rear, a camera module with two lenses has been chosen. It is a primary 16-megapixel sensor (Sony IMX519) with pixels of 1.22μm. The secondary sensor (Sony IMX376K) shoots photos in 20-megapixel with pixels of 1μm. The OnePlus 6T uses the second sensor to estimate the depth so that the subject can be separated from the background. This makes it possible to create a bokeh effect, with the background less sharp to emphasize the subject.
The fingerprint sensor is placed under the screen and is called ‘Screen Unlock’ by OnePlus. The optical fingerprint sensor is placed at the back of the screen and contains a small lens that can accurately scan a fingerprint when a user presses his finger on the glass. The screen is used as a light source to improve the circumference of a fingerprint, allowing the sensor to accurately read the exact dimensions and shape. The Trust Zone of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845-soc, which serves as an isolated virtual space, is used to safely store the fingerprint data.
A choice can be made between three different configurations: 6 GB RAM / 128 GB storage, 8 GB RAM / 128 GB and 8 GB RAM / 256 GB storage. These configurations are available in glossy and matte black, depending on the storage configuration. OnePlus sadly says goodbye to the 3.5mm headphone jack. The battery has a capacity of 3700mAh with support for fast charging.
The OnePlus 6T is the cheapest model with 128GB storage and 6GB RAM for 559 euros. This variant can only be ordered in Mirror Black (glossy black). The OnePlus 6T with 8GB RAM and 128GB / 256GB storage are available for 589 and 639 euros respectively in the colors Mirror and Midnight Black.
