The OnePlus 6T is slated to launch next month as the Chinese phone makers mid-cycle refresh that its done for the past two generations. Today a new leak reveals what the phone would look like.
The OnePlus 6Ts design is mostly unchanged from the OnePlus 6 except for one major difference: theres 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 drop the headphone jack, which has been on every OnePlus phone since the companys 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 in-display fingerprint solution must have driven up the devices cost.
The phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 CPU and were 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 were 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.
