OnePlus 6T is launching in India and globally on October 30

The upcoming flagship from OnePlus which has been promoted through teaser videos on social media is expected to be unveiled globally on October 30 at an event in New York, USA.

Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus on Monday announced that it will refresh its line-up with OnePlus 6T in India on October 30 too.

Since the launch of OnePlus 3 and 3T later the same year in 2016, OnePlus has launched a device with incremental hardware updates every year and this year too they’re slated to do the same.

Rumoured for quite some time, it has now become certain that the upcoming OnePlus 6T device will house an in-screen fingerprint scanner.

The company’s CEO Pete Lau recently said that the 3.5-mm headphone jack has been done away with to make room for the new ‘Screen Unlock’ feature — OnePlus’ name for the in-display fingerprint sensor.

Now while the omission of the 3.5mm jack might seem like bad news for the users, it surely is good news for the company as well as third-party accessory providers who will jump to the opportunity of providing a USB Type-C extension jack that includes a 3.5 mm connector — much like in Apple iPhone’s case. That’s some business.

It has also been rumoured that the company might ship USB Type-C compatible versions of its ‘bullet’ headphones.

The smartphone will feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with a waterdrop-style notch — as seen on Vivo V11 Pro or Oppo F9 pro —  and an aspect ratio of 19:9.

The screen is expected to sport Corning Gorilla Glass as it houses the in-display fingerprint scanner, enabling the ‘Screen Unlock’ feature.

OnePlus 6T will run on its own OxygenOS that will be based on Android 9 Pie and will be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 processor.

The OnePlus flagship is rumoured to house 3700mAh battery and will support the company’s ‘DashCharge’ technology.
