1/10/18: OnePlus released another official teaser (below) for your OnePlus 6T input, confirming the popular fingerprint scanner on the display and the end-to-end display. The short video does not show much, but previous rumors point to a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen, internal to the Snapdragon 845, and a vertically mounted dual camera configuration.

9/27/18: A new mega-leak OnePlus 6T, courtesy of @OnLeaks, shows the input device from all angles.

Images (above) and a 360-degree video (below) shared with MySmartPrice confirm the OnePlus 6T opaque water notch, which sits on top of its 6.4-inch Optical AMOLED screen, which has a resolution of 1080×2340 and an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. Also confirmed is the dual camera configuration of 16MP + 20MP vertically stacked smartphone, the lack of 3.5mm headphone jack and, given the lack of physical sensor, the fingerprint scanner embedded in the screen.

The leak, which is the most significant we've seen, also says the device will measure 8.2mm thick (slightly thicker than the OnePlus 6) and a 2.8GHz Snapdragon 845 processor, Adreno 630 GPU and 6GB or RAM 8 GB paired with 64 GB and 128 GB storage, respectively.

9/25/18: There is not much that we do not yet know about the OnePlus 6T, thanks to the not so subtle tips of the Chinese manufacturer. However, thanks to a new leak in Weibo, we can finally see what the device is like.

Images posted on the Chinese social network (below) claim to show the OnePlus 6T in all its glory, complete with a teardrop notch similar to the Oppo R17 and a fingerprint sensor on display.

However, before you get really excited, there are no snaps on the back of the smartphone, nor any sign of any OnePlus brand addition to your wallpaper "Never Settle". And as seen by Gizmodo, there is a hole for what appears to be a headset on the bottom right – despite OnePlus's confirmation that the device would be the first to drop the 3.5mm port.

9/20/18: An official teaser video of OnePlus 6T spurred the fingerprint scanner on display of the flagship entry.

The video (belowstar Amitabh Bachchan, the brand ambassador to India, refers to the device's screen sensor, which OnePlus confirmed would reach 6T earlier this month.

"We unlocked our phones several times a day, and Screen Unblocking reduces the number of steps to complete the action," said one OnePlus employee.

"By adding this feature as an addition to other display unlock options, such as Face Unlock, users will have options to unlock the display in a way that is more efficient for them."

The clip also demystifies speculation that the OnePlus 6T will follow in the footsteps of Samsung's newly announced Galaxy A7 with a three-lens rear-facing camera, displaying the device's dual rear cameras.

There is not much confirmed during the 15-second teaser, but we already know that the OnePlus 6T will feature internal parts of the Snapdragon 845, a larger battery than its predecessor OnePlus 6 and, er, no headphones.

9/13/18: OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will be their first smartphone to dispense with the headset.

In an interview with TechRadarOnePlus founder Carl Pei has revealed that the "next OnePlus" will end up with the 3.5mm jack in favor of USB-C.

He says the "controversial" decision was spurred by the fact that nearly 60% of current OnePlus owners already own wireless headsets.

"We found that 59% of our community already had wireless headsets earlier this year – and that was before we launched our Bullets wireless headphones," he said.

And Pei says that by removing the connector, the company is releasing more space to put "more new technology" into the product, noting that the 6T will offer a larger battery than its predecessor OnePlus 6. This is also probably a nod to the sensor of fingerprints on the 6T display, which OnePlus confirmed was coming earlier this month.

"This [removing the headphone jack] was a very controversial decision. We are not doing this to do this and because everyone else is. We believe that now is the right time because it will benefit most of our users while keeping the downside down. "

Fortunately, Pei has confirmed that the OnePlus will feature a 3.5mm USB connector matched in the box. And since then, the company has let go that it will be releasing new Type-C Bullet headphones next to OnePlus 6T, which will cost £ 15.99 in the UK.

12/9/18: A dubious site listed the OnePlus 6T for pre-ordering before its October unveiling.

GizTop, a Chinese e-commerce site linked to the blog GizmoChina, is listing the next-generation OnePlus flagship with a price tag of $ 569 (about £ 440) and claims that the 6T will start shipping on October 16th.

It also gives us a complete summary of the device's specifications, so if the listing is accurate, it is unlikely that OnePlus has many surprises in store.

The handset will include a 23.4×1080 AMOLED screen with a 91.6% close-up ratio, according to GizTop, which will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor combined with an Adreno 630 GPU.

The OnePlus 6T will also have three cameras on the back (20MP, 12MP and TOF 3D), a front camera of 25MP, 8GB RAM, 64GB / 128GB / 256GB storage, Google's Android OS 9.0 and Google's " light". sensor under the display ".

Of course, we advise you to take this leak with a pinch of salt.

11/09/18: OnePlus has confirmed that the incoming OnePlus 6T will be the first to display a fingerprint sensor on the screen.

Talking to CNET, The company said the implementation of the technology – currently found in versions such as Vivo Nex and Porsche Design, by Huawei Mate RS – will be unimaginably marked by "Screen Unlock".

"We unlocked our phones several times a day and Screen Unblocking reduces the number of steps to complete the action," a OnePlus employee told the site, noting that the technology was originally scheduled to debut on OnePlus 5T.

"By adding this feature as an addition to other display unlock options, such as Face Unlock, users will have options to unlock the display in a way that is more efficient for them."

In order to accommodate the new technology, the design of the OnePlus 6T will be "slightly adjusted" compared to its predecessor, with the incoming flagship set to be a bit thicker with rearranged internal parts.

5/9/18: Far be it from your always cynical INQ believe in everything we see on a blurred screen, but that's a bit exciting.

OnePlus 6T is far from an incremental change, as 5T seems to be flanking a whole new set of features that will probably bother anyone who paid out to OnePlus 6 just a few months ago.

An image of what is supposed to be packaged from the next device, planned for next month, suggests that the 6T will have a fingerprint sensor, and a teardrop designed to occupy as little space as possible on the screen.

The image, which appeared on the Weibo, does not show a photograph, which immediately rings the alarms, but is intricate enough to suggest that if it is a farce, it is a good stab.

After moving the fingerprint reader forward in the latest iterations, moving it to the screen itself would not only be a big deal for OnePlus, but for the mobile industry in general, after the Galaxy Note 9 and the Future iPhone XS lineup both seem to not compromise with the technology that was seemingly forever promised.

We tend to take such revelations with a hint of ancient calcium carbonate, but as that specific user of Weibo has done before, we are going to stretch our necks and say that this is real. Perhaps. Possibly. Ish

Other specs we can expect include the Android 9.0 Pie in the form of its variant of Oxygen OS,

Although officially the 6T does not yet exist, we are actually waiting a month earlier, in October this time, so the date of January 15 mentioned in the post is mysterious.

It may be that, for the first time, this is an exclusive operator at the beginning. Earlier, O2 had non-exclusive rights in the UK, but there are rumors that T-Mobile has gotten it to the US, which may be exclusive. More news as we understand. μ

8/20/18: The OnePlus 6T will be launched in October this year as the company's first smartphone to be offered through a US network.

So say CNET, citing people familiar with the launch plans, said that the next flagship of Chinese company "T" will be offered by T-Mobile's network in the United States.

T-Mobile would be OnePlus's exclusive launch operator in the United States, selling the phone through its retail stores and website, CNET reported, while OnePlus will still sell an unlocked version of 6T through its own website.

OnePlus has signed an agreement with the US airline, which will see the company launch a "specific version of the OnePlus 6T optimized for the T-Mobile network," which will include support for the carrier's Extended Range LTE technology.

The only hiccup could be to obtain the "technical approval" required for use on the network, according to CNETsources, which could cause a delay in launching the carrier.

Still, if the rumors are true, that will be a big deal for OnePlus, which has not yet gained much of its name in the United States because of the carrier's lack of support. A partnership with T-Mobile would ensure greater visibility of your product than direct sales already offered through its own retail channels.

The report does not tell us much about the OnePlus 6T, but it notes that the device will cost the same as its predecessor OnePlus 6. This means you will probably be able to get a 64GB model for £ 419 with variants of 128GB and 256GB looking 519 and 569, respectively.

While CNET has no word on the device's specifications or features, previous rumors suggest that the OnePlus 6T will be the first smartphone to feature Qualcomm's next-generation 855 Snapdragon processor, while others have stated that it could include a full-screen design with a selfie pop-up camera like Vivo Nex. μ
