The OnePlus 6T will cost $569. It will feature a 6.4in (2340×1080) AMOLED display, a light-sensitive in-display fingerprint sensor, the Snapdragon 845 with Adreno 5630, 6/8GB of RAM, 64/128/256GB of storage, a triple rear camera, 25Mp selfie camera and a 3,500mAh battery.

The new Oneplus 6T will have In-display fingerprint scanner. We didn’t think we’d see an in-display fingerprint sensor before the OnePlus 7, but OnePlus has confirmed ahead of the launch that the 6T will. Not by name, but it’s “next phone”. “We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action,” OnePlus told CNET. “By adding this feature as an addition to other display unlocking options such as Face Unlock, users will have options to unlock the display in a way that is most efficient for them.”

No major surprises there, but the decidedly low-res accompanying images that show off the ‘Waterdrop Display’ with 91.5% screen-to-body ratio are worth a look.

OnePlus 6T Giztop listing

We are certainly expecting the OnePlus 6T to launch in mid-October (probably 17 October), which would likely lead to a late-October on sale date. The in-display fingerprint sensor has also already been confirmed, meaning this ‘flagship killer’ will actually get out ahead of its rivals with 2019’s hot new trend. And it would be no surprise to see OnePlus follow in the footsteps of the recent Oppo R17 with its smaller, almost triangular screen notch.

Something else that has now been confirmed is OnePlus will not include a 3.5mm headphone jack in its next smartphone. We fear it may be about to upset fans once again, despite its claim that at least 59 percent of its community own wireless headphones.If you look at the release-date pattern it’s clear that we get one release in the summer (typically June), and one in the autumn (typically November). Aside from the OnePlus X, which we can regard as something of a blip given that CEO Pete Lau has already ruled out the possibility of a follow-up device, each autumn release is a ‘T’ model that is an incremental upgrade on the summer release rather than a full refresh.

How much will the OnePlus 6T cost?

OnePlus works hard to keep its pricing low and relatively  constant, so we wouldn’t expect to see the price rise any higher than the current OnePlus 6’s £469 RRP. That’s for the 6GB/64GB model, and there’s also an 8GB/128GB model at £519. According to the Giztop leak it will cost $569 in the US.
