OnePlus will launch a new phone in the second half of 2018, notably an upgrade to its T-series. In the last two years, # T versions have been released about five months after their predecessors and contained minor updates that fix all the issues of the previous OnePlus device. While we know something about OnePlus 6T, what it could be is much more exciting.
The rumors continue as we get closer to its launch, which could be as early as October, so we've gathered together some highlights and possible additions that could come with this enhanced OnePlus smartphone. While we do not expect all the features to succeed, we hope that OnePlus will at least hear its community and think about it for the OnePlus 7, as it is unlikely at the last minute that any improvements will be made.

Thanks to a recent leak, we believe that the wish of Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus, could finally come to fruition. According to CNET, T-Mobile will be the exclusive US mobile partner for the OnePlus 6T. This exclusivity is available on the phone when a certification process is performed for the mobile operator. If the technical approval does not exist, the start of the operator may be delayed.
With a mobile operator, OnePlus could dramatically improve sales as most smartphones in America are sold through mobile operators. As a result, 88 percent of all smartphone sales in the first quarter of 2018 were in physical stores, most of which were mobile operators. They will also give much-needed marketing to OnePlus, something that the company has been reluctant to increase as it would affect their ability to offer the phone at a low price.
Overall, there will be two variants of the phone, one specifically for T-Mobile, for the carrier's network and the global version will be optimized years. As for the T-Mobile version, it will include the new LTE Band 71, making it one of the better options for rural America. AT & T customers can continue to use OnePlus 6T with the global version that has their tapes.
. 2 It'll come with "Warp Charge"
We know that OnePlus will most likely change the name of the charging system from "Dash Charge" to "Warp Charge". A trademark of the trademark application was discovered at the European Union Intellectual Property Office, which reveals the new name, due to the fact that the Dash Charge brand was rejected by the same authority because of its similarity to a product from the wireless audio company Bragi Amazon. Although the US trademark has been approved, OnePlus will likely opt for consistency and change the system name across all brands.
However, there is a possibility that OnePlus will use this rebranding option to introduce a new fast-charging system based on Oppos's Super VOOC technology. The current OnePlus system is based on Oppo's VOOC, so it's likely that they will adopt the new fast-charging system.
Super VOOC is a charged version of their current system. With Super VOOC, a 3,400 mAh battery can be charged from zero to 100 percent in 35 minutes. That's about twice as much as the current system and any other fast-charging system offered by other companies.
. 3 Android 9.0 Pie will be in
with Android 9.0 Pie, which is already officially released on Pixels and Essential phones, there is an excellent chance OnePlus 6T will start with the new Android version. OnePlus could even be almost completely ported to the latest Android version of OxygenOS, as the OnePlus 6 was one of the eleven phones running Android Pie Beta. Expect the typical enhancements that come with additional customization tools and improved battery management.
. 4 There is a small price increase & start in November
The 6T price will only rise by $ 20 to $ 550. The thing is, with upgrades coming with this phone, I do not see how the price can only go up by $ 20. However, OnePlus could expect additional revenues with T-Mobile exclusivity, so they can keep the price down despite the rising cost of manufacturing the new device.
. 5 Based on the Oppo R17
Recently, OnePlus has lent Oppos Design for their devices. With Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus, all of which have the same parent, BBK, this borrowing makes sense, and early rumors suggest that the OnePlus 6T will follow. Thanks to a recent Weibo post (below), we took a first look at the packaging of the OnePlus 6T, which revealed the new design for the front cover of the phone. And it revealed the recycling of an Oppo design by OnePlus, with the phone of choice being the R17 this year.
6. In-Display Fingerprint Scanner
The R17 does not have a physical fingerprint scanner but an in-display fingerprint scanner. While we initially thought that this technology is too new to transmit, It looks like OnePlus would bring it to the 6T. OnePlus once again uses a display score. The 6T's notch is smaller than its predecessor and uses a water droplet design to reduce its size.
A picture of Weibo (see below) supports this rumor, as the complete view of the phone shows no visible fingerprint scanner. Although it is possible to use a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, it seems that we get the in-display scanner.
OnePlus has confirmed to CNET that the new feature will be Screen Unlock. OnePlus also confirmed that they had been watching the technology for some time since the 5T, but only now they feel mature enough for their standards. Due to its inclusion, the in-display fingerprint reader (which is technically embedded beneath the display) will increase the thickness by 0.012 inches.
. 7 It will have 2 or 3 rear view cameras
A leak comes on Weibo and shows us a complete first look at the OnePlus 6T. Based on the picture, the phone will not only have the water drop notch in the front, but will have three rear cameras. The LED flash can not be seen in the picture, but the assumption is that it is to the right of the camera (and thus behind the picture of the front of the phone). The three cameras are located vertically in the center of the back cover.
My only question about this photo is the lack of an alarm slider. It is unlikely that OnePlus would remove this beloved feature, but it does not seem to be in the photo. But if that's true, the OnePlus 6T would be one of just four phones with a triple reversing camera (one of which is not available in the US) and easily the cheapest phones.
Two new leaks, however, expose the threefold cameras. First, WinFuture released a picture showing the unit's new back cover and its two back cameras. In fact, apart from the removal of the rear fingerprint scanner, there is little difference between the rear cover of the OnePlus 6 and 6T.
There is also a video that seems to be an official commercial for the OnePlus 6T. In the commercial you can clearly see that the man holds a smartphone with two rear view cameras and not the rumored Tripel.
OnePlus co-founder spoke with TechRadar, revealing that the OnePlus 6T will be the first OnePlus device to feature a headphone jack. Although companies such as Apple and Motorola, which took it out two years ago, are annoyed, OnePlus will follow suit.
The reason is actually very similar to Apple, better battery life. The removal of the 3.5mm port will provide additional battery capacity, which will increase the battery life of OnePlus fans. When new technologies emerge, they can use this space for future security. To compensate for this distance, there will be a dongle for your 3.5mm headphone jack until you switch to wireless. In addition, they have just released a pair of bullet earphones that use USB-C for pairing with the OnePlus 6T low price of $ 19.95
9. No Wireless Charging or IP Rating
OnePlus will once again be on the list of OEMs that do not have at least one phone with an official IP rating. In a CNET interview, CEO Peter Lau said that due to the additional costs, the 6T will not have official IP certification. According to Mr. Lau
"The number of users who use their phone to swim is very small, so as to get everyone else, say $ 30, to get an IP address to accommodate them the only user who starts and floats his cell phone is inappropriate. "
Mr. Lau also doubled her argument in favor of wireless charging once again. Unless wireless charging can match the speed of OnePlus Dash Charging (or whatever they call it), they do not include the technology. But to achieve that, the phone would be much thicker and transmit a lot of heat. Therefore, until the technology is improved, OnePlus phones will not.
10th A Notice on October 30
First rumors point to a launch event on Wednesday, October 17. The most important evidence was the OnePlus published lock screen used by CNET during their interview. However, it seems that OnePlus played the old "ookey-doke" on us. OnePlus has officially announced that the inaugural event will be held on October 30 at Pier 36 in New York City. The event starts at 11:00 EDT
Like the announcement of 5T, OnePlus sells tickets to the public. Tickets start at $ 30, but for those who book before October 10, they can use early bird rates for $ 20. We expect OnePlus to use ticket sales again for a charitable donation (donated to F-Droid with the 5T, OnePlus).
OnePlus also distributes free goodies to all participants. Each ticket gets a OnePlus Pin Set, a Sketchbook and Bullets Wireless Earphones ($ 69) for free. There will be brand new OnePlus equipment at the event, snacks and more. And for those who can not make it to the event, OnePlus will also stream the event live.
Date: Tuesday, October 30
Location: Pier 36 NYC @ 299 South Street, New York, NY 10002
Time: 11:00 EDT ( Check-in time starts at 9:00 AM)
