It won’t be an exaggeration to say that there’s a considerable amount of hype around the OnePlus 6T, the next ‘flagship killer’ smartphone from OnePlus. Even though the Chinese company hasn’t announced a date so far, reports have indicated that the smartphone could go official on October 16, and launch in India the very next day. However, it seems that Amazon India, the smartphone’s official online retail channel, is already hard at work for the OnePlus 6T’s imminent arrival.
We were able to spot a gift card listing on Amazon India, pertaining to the upcoming smartphone. The gift card, which doesn’t appear to be live yet, mentions that those who pre-book OnePlus 6T will get a free pair of OnePlus’ recently-launched Type-C Bullets earphones, as well as Rs 500 Amazon Pay balance.
The gift card has a value of zero, and clicking on it doesn’t reveal anything. We believe that the promotion will go live once OnePlus 6T officially launches, with the card’s value being set to the smartphone’s pre-booking amount.
Interestingly, the listing shows October 30 as the ending date, which all but confirms that the smartphone is about to arrive very soon.
Watch: OnePlus 6 Red First Look
Thanks to numerous leaks and rumors over the past few weeks, we have a fair idea of what to expect from OnePlus 6T. The smartphone will have a ‘waterdrop’ notch, much smaller than the current OnePlus 6 comes with. It’s also been confirmed to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor, and sans a 3.5mm audio port. OnePlus 6T will have a dual-camera system at the back, as well as the company’s proprietary ‘Dash Charge’ technology, which could arrive with a new name.
