OnePlus 6T is one of the most anticipated upcoming flagship smartphones from the China-based smartphone company OnePlus. The launch of the device comes months after the company launched its OnePlus 6 back in May of this year. Considering that the company is launching the device a mere 5 months after the launch of its previous flagship device, you may think what is the point of the launch. Well, you may be right but the company believes in launching smartphones with the latest hardware available at the time. This is especially important for the smartphone industry where the pace of innovation is faster than the annual release cycles of the devices. Also Read - Confirmed!

No headphone jack

The company confirmed that the device will not come with a 3.5-mm audio jack. This was one of the first pieces of information that OnePlus shared about its upcoming device, the OnePlus 6T. The confirmation came right around the time when the company announced the launch of Bullets earphones with a USB Type-C port instead of the usual 3.5mm audio connector.

The company also revealed that removal of the audio jack will allow the company to add newer technology to the device including a larger battery. The announcement also resulted in a considerable amount of outrage on social media where people expressed their disappointment about the company removing the audio jack.

In-display fingerprint scanner

3.5mm audio jack is not the only thing that will be removed from the device as the company confirmed that the device will also not come with a rear fingerprint scanner. Instead, the OnePlus 6T will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The company revealed this information adding that it feels that the in-display fingerprint scanner technology has matured enough for the company to include it in their device while maintaining the top of the line user experience. The feature has since been teased in a TV commercial starring Amitabh Bachchan and tweets on the official OnePlus handle.

Water-drop notch

Reports have also emerged on the internet indicating that the upcoming device will ditch the notch in favor of a water droplet-like notch that we saw in the Oppo F9 Pro.

The smaller notch is the likely progression for the company from the current notch that comes in the OnePlus 6. The company has not officially confirmed it but it will be in line with the upgrades that the T-lineup receives.

3,700mAh battery capacity

Talking about the battery capacity of the device, reports have surfaced on the internet indicating that OnePlus is likely to add a 3,700mAh battery in the OnePlus 6T in place of the 3,300mAh battery that comes with the current OnePlus 6.

This is in line with the expectation by the company that removing a 3.5mm audio jack will give the company more space to add a larger battery.

Possible increase in price

Last but not the least, it is possible that the OnePlus 6T is going to cost more than the OnePlus 6. The reason for the increase in pricing is likely because of the weaker Rs in comparison to the US dollar which is likely to drive the price of smartphone components up in the coming months.
