In several hours from now, OnePlus will launch the OnePlus 6T, its next flagship phone. The OnePlus 6T, which succeeds the OnePlus 6, will be launched at an event in New York. The event will start at 11am ET time, which means if you are following the OnePlus 6T launch event from India, you will have to be in front of your computer or on phone at 8.30PM tonight.
The OnePlus 6T is the successor to the OnePlus 6. So far indications are that the phone will have a design similar to that of the OnePlus 6 along with the same core hardware, including up to 8GB RAM and the Snapdragon 845 processor. The new bits in the OnePlus 6T are going to be a futuristic fingerprint sensor embedded under the display, a bigger screen with waterdrop notch and improved Oxygen OS based on the latest Android 9 Pie.
OnePlus has also teased that the OnePlus 6T will feature improved camera functionality, although the camera hardware is likely to be the same that is inside the OnePlus6. In other words, OnePlus 6T will have a dual-camera setup at the back, and single camera on the front. Another change in the new phone compared to the OnePlus 6 is the battery size. The new OnePlus 6T is going to come with a larger 3700 mAh battery.
Finally, there is the missing 3.5mm jack. OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will not have a the regular 3.5mm jack. This will make the OnePlus 6T similar to the likes of iPhone XR and Google Pixel 3, which too lack headphone jack.
