The OnePlus 6T is expected to be launched next month as the Chinese phone maker’s mid-cycle refresh that it’s done for the past two generations. Today a new leak reveals what the phone would look like.
The OnePlus 6T’s design is mostly unchanged from the OnePlus 6 except for one major difference: there’s a less-intrusive “waterdrop” notch, much like the Oppo R17 Pro. Of course, the other difference is the size: the 6T will supposedly use an ever-so-slightly larger display measuring 6.4-inched diagonally protected by Gorilla Glass 6. This should also yield a slightly higher screen-to-body ratio.
The other major difference is the 6T might be OnePlus’ first officially water-resistant phone. CEO of OnePlus – Carl Pei has already confirmed that the 6T will not have a 3.5 mm jack, which has been on every OnePlus phone since the company’s first generation device. Because of this, OnePlus would really have no excuse not to make the 6T water resistant.
There have been rumors that the 6T would equip a triple camera setup like the Oppo R17 Pro. However, due to the low-cost/high-value culture that OnePlus has created for the brand, just having two cameras is much more likely. After all, the all in display fingerprint solution must have driven up the device’s cost.
The phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 CPU and we’re expecting to see 6GB/8GB varirants with 64GB/128GB/and maybe even 256GB storage options. We also might see the same 16MP + 20MP dual camera combination. The OnePlus 6 was just updated to Android 9.0 Pie, so we’re expecting the 6T to come with Android Pie out of the box.
OnePlus has not yet said when or where it will announce this device. Given the rumored launch date of October 17, OnePlus should be confirming this sometime in the next week or two.
