For quite sometime now it has been a tradition for OnePlus to make a refresh of their smartphones, by releasing another version of their flagship, adding the suffix ‘T’ to the name.These refresh smartphones usually have minor spec bumps and some design changes.
This year OnePlus has continued with the tradition, the one plus 6T is a complete refresh of the OnePlus 6 which was released earlier this year.The Oneplus 6T has specs that is very similar to that of the OnePlus 6, having the biggest change in its display.
In this article I am going to be discussing the new features of the OnePlus 6T.
These new features are broken down into the following headings.
The OnePlus 6 introduced the Notch system to OnePlus smartphone line up. The OnePlus 6T continues with the notch system. This time, OnePlus featured a smaller notch, a tear drop notch with lesser carriage.
The notch on the OnePlus 6T ditches the notification led the oneplus 6 had in its notch. The tear drop notch on the OnePlus 6T features it’s earpiece, front facing camera, ambient light sensors and proximity sensor.
There are no face ID sensors here, as OnePlus has chosen to continue to with it’s facial recognition system, using RGB front facing camera.
Bezels on the one plus 6T and the OnePlus 6, looks almost the same size, but you will notice a little reduction in bezels on the bottom chin.
As for display specs, the OnePlus 6T continues the same specs as the OnePlus 6. The OnePlus 6T features a 6.4 inch 2340 x 1080 optic AMOLED display.
Still speaking on display, the OnePlus 6T ditches the rear mounted fingerprint sensor and features an optical fingerprint print sensor under its display.
Turn the OnePlus 6T backwards and it will be very difficult to tell It’s difference with the OnePlus 6, but there are actually differences.
The OnePlus 6T doesn’t feature a rear mounted fingerprint reader like the OnePlus 6 did and it doesn’t feature a headphone jack.
OnePlus said they removed the headphone jack because the optical fingerprint sensor as well as the bigger battery featured on the OnePlus 6T took the space.
The OnePlus 6T ushers in a new entry-level storage for OnePlus phones.
The configurations of the OnePlus 6T includes:
- 128GB 6GB $549

As earlier said, the differences between the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T falls under display, build , storage and battery headings. These changes make the OnePlus 6T more futuristic and more appealing.
other specs of the OnePlus 6 remains the same.
