Now that you know a few of the basics and we’ve answered some important questions, read on for the latest news and rumors.
Latest OnePlus 6T News (August 2018)
Before we get started, this section will always show the latest news and rumors to give you the highlights and recent info.
While we don’t know too much about the OnePlus 6T yet or seen any leaks photos, CNET recently unleashed a ton of information. According to sources who spoke with CNET, the OnePlus 6T will arrive sometime in October.
Furthermore, they also claim OnePlus will finally have a partner US carrier sell its phone online and in stores for the first time in history. Yes, the OnePlus 6T will reportedly be available from T-Mobile in the United States, then unlocked online for every other carrier like previous phones. This is big news if true, and a good sign for US buyers.
OnePlus 6T Release Date
First things first, when will you be able to buy the OnePlus 6T? Well, we’re not really sure, but we have a good idea. The company releases two phones each year, with the second model coming near the end of the year to battle Samsung, Apple, and Google. They usually wait until everyone else releases phones, then they swoop in at a lower price to steal sales and customers weighing their options.
The OnePlus 5T arrived in November of 2017, and the 3T before it came out in November too. Actually, both phones arrived between November 15-21st.
With that in mind, the OnePlus 6T will almost certainly get announced sometime in October, and hit shelves around the world come November 19th. That’s my guess. However, the CNET report above said it’ll arrive in October. We could see an earlier release this year, and we’ll update this section once we learn more.
OnePlus 6T Design & Display
This year the OnePlus 6 has a huge 6.3-inch screen comparable to the Galaxy Note 9, only with a notch similar to the iPhone X. And while we don’t think they’ll ditch the notch until 2019, they will make it smaller. So far we’re hearing the new 6T will have a similar overall design and camera setup, but look like what’s shown below. This is a fan-made (fake) concept video by the popular YouTuber ConceptCreator.
This is a great representation of what we could see later this year. OnePlus is part of a bigger company who also makes phones under the brand name Oppo and Vivo, two of which have phones with a design like we’re seeing above.
Each year Oppo releases a phone outside of the United States, and a very similar device becomes the next OnePlus phone. So, we’re assuming the OnePlus 6T will look similar to the new Oppo R17, or a few other devices.
Basically, the OnePlus 6T could come with a truly edge-to-edge bezel-less display. If not, it might look similar to the recently announced Oppo R17. Give us a premium metal and glass phone with a notch that’s as small as possible. Then, hide the speaker in the metal frame for almost a true edge-to-edge display.
We’re still expecting two (or maybe 3) cameras on the back, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, potentially wireless charging, and everything else buyers already know and love about OnePlus phones. The company won’t make any major changes to the design. They’re saving the in-display fingerprint scanner and any groundbreaking new designs for the OnePlus 7 in 2019.
OnePlus 6T Specs & Features
A bigger 6.2 or even 6.4-inch display and small notch aren’t the only exciting aspects of this phone. And while we’re not sure exactly what’s coming yet, things can only change so much in six months. So, this is what you can expect based on rumors, leaks, and the current technology available.
