OnePlus has confirmed that it is soon going to launch its next flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 6T in the Indian market. Weeks before the expected launch date of October 17, the teaser page for the device is already live on Amazon India. The page informs us that OnePlus will launch the 6T as an Amazon Exclusive with the option to ‘Notify’ users as and when more information about the device is available. The teaser image points out that the device is ‘Coming soon’. In addition to the teaser page, the television commercial for the OnePlus 6T featuring OnePlus India brand ambassador Amitabh Bachchan has also started broadcasting on the television.

Taking a closer look at the television commercial, we see that Bachchan hints at a “cooler way to unlock your” smartphone. Immediately after that, the screen flashes the text message “Touch The Innovation” hinting at the in-display fingerprint scanner that OnePlus confirmed last week. Bachchan concludes the advertisement by adding that “the new OnePlus 6T is coming” with a flashing message teasing the performance of the device with “Ready for Speed?” The launch page also teases the launch of the Type-C Bullets.

This comes days after the company confirmed that the device will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner and that the company will drop the 3.5-mm audio jack from the device to add newer technology in the device. OnePlus previously hinted that the OnePlus 6T will come with a larger battery.

The company is likely to hold the launch event on October 17 and it is likely that the OnePlus 6T will come with a water drop-like notch instead of a considerably fat one that comes with the OnePlus 6. The launch of OnePlus 6T is not the only significant announcement that we have seen from the company as it announced its plans to enter the TV segment with its OnePlus TV.
