OnePlus has been working on its next flagship model, the OnePlus 6T, which is rumored to launch on October 17. We have come across multiple rumors and leaks hinting at the expected features on the OnePlus 6T, right from pop-up selfie camera, to triple cameras at the back and more.
The company has already teased the launch on Amazon India, and running TVCs with brand ambassador Amitabh Bachchan, with a tagline “unlock the speed.” The smartphone is expected to ditch the physical fingerprint scanner, and is expected to come with an in-display scanner. Up front, OnePlus is also expected to change the notch design, and the smartphone is expected to come with a waterdrop notch, just like the Vivo V11, and V11 Pro.

The notch will house the front camera, which will also support face unlock. And while a triple rear camera setup was expected, the 360-degree renders leaked (courtesy MySmartPrice), reveal only a dual camera setup. The renders also give us the clearest look at the smartphone design.
OnePlus has already announced that it will be selling the USB Type-C based earphones, and that the 6T will finally ditch the 3.5mm audio socket. The renders show the bottom of the smartphone with a Type-C port flanked between the speaker grill.
Otherwise, there doesn’t seem much difference in OnePlus 6T compared to the OnePlus 6. The waterdrop notch will definitely offer more screen real estate, it is now expected to come with a 6.5-inch display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the smartphone will likely be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 6GB / 8GB RAM, and 128GB, 256GB storage options. We could also expect a 512GB storage option.
In the photography department, the same 16-megapixel + 20-megapixel sensor from OnePlus 6 is expected at the back, along with a 20-megapixel sensor on the front. The company has said that the space saved by removing the headphone jack will be used to add a slightly larger battery, but there is no word on the capacity. Lastly, the OnePlus 6 already has Android 9 Pie update rolling out, and we can expect the 6T to ship with the same out of the box.
