The OnePlus 6T was globally launched at an event in New York last night, and it is all set to arrive in India later tonight. Hours ahead of the launch in the country, the new flagship device’s predecessor (OnePlus 6) has gone out of stock on Amazon India and oneplus.in.
Since its launch a little over five months ago, the OnePlus 6 was available online via Amazon India and OnePlus’ online store. But a quick look at these places show that all variants of the OnePlus 6 are unavailable. We reached out to OnePlus, and a company spokesperson confirmed that the device is indeed out of stock across all platforms.
This comes as little surprise as OnePlus is gearing up to launch its next flagship device later tonight. The company is hosting an event in New Delhi at 8:30PM where it will be launching the OnePlus 6T. With the flagship device unveiled last night, the only thing remaining to know is the India pricing.
It is all but known that the OnePlus 6T will be going on sale starting November 2 though Amazon India’s Prime members will get early access on November 1. There will also be a bunch of launch day offers for buyers to take advantage of.
Earlier this year, the OnePlus 6 was launched with a starting price of Rs 34,999, which was higher than its predecessor (OnePlus 5T). With the OnePlus 6T bringing in a few new features like in-display fingerprint sensor and a base variant with 128GB of storage, we can expect the device’s price tag to be a tad higher than the OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 6T specifications, features
To quickly recap on the specifications, the OnePlus 6T flaunts a 6.41-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and a waterdrop notch at the top. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC paired with Adreno 630 GPU. Also available are up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB internal storage.
For photography, the dual-camera setup at the back includes 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel sensors. But OnePlus is introducing new image processing including a new low-light photography feature called Nightscape. At the front is the same 16-megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture and 25mm wide-angle lens.
One of the major differentiators on the OnePlus 6T is the in-display fingerprint sensor. On the software front, the device runs Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box, and will be available in midnight black and mirror black finishes.
