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, the 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 and a start in October
Thanks to CNET we also learned the price and the release date for the 6T. According to CNET, the OnePlus 6T will be released about five months after OnePlus 6 in October, which fits well with the previous # T releases.
The price of the 6T will only increase by 20 to 550 dollars. While the price makes us nervous, as this would mean a small appreciation, OnePlus could expect additional revenue from T-Mobile's exclusivity, so they can keep the price down despite the rising cost of making 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, we got 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 this year being the R17.
The R17 does not have a physical fingerprint scanner, but instead has an in-display scanner. While we initially thought that this technology was too new to transmit, It looks like OnePlus would bring the technology to 6T. OnePlus once again uses a display score. The 6T notch is smaller than its predecessor and uses a waterdrop design to reduce its size.
According to the reliable Leaker Roland Quandt the next flagship SoC, Snapdragon 855, has been in mass production since the beginning of June. The 7 nm SoC could potentially be used in 6T because Qualcomm should have more than enough inventory for the upcoming device. While it is likely that Qualcomm will save the SoC for 2019 smartphones, remember that when the OnePlus debuted the T-Series (with the 3T), the main difference was the new chipset.
The inclusion of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 would bring a whole host of improvements How better overall performance and better gaming performance. However, the most significant change would be the inclusion of a dedicated neural processing unit and 5G support. The former would mean that OnePlus could use KI to enhance the experience of the phone, including better battery management and improved photography. The latter would suggest that if the mobile operators finally turn 5G on, OnePlus 6T would be ready to take advantage of the new faster speed.
. 7 It will likely be a 3.5mm headphone jack
There is little doubt that the OnePlus 6T includes a headphone jack. As one of the few OEMs that still has the port, it is unlikely that this will return to the OnePlus 6T.
While we agree that the inclusion of an AMOLED display was a great complement to the OnePlus lineups, their refusal to add a screen with a higher resolution than 1080p is annoying. Since its introduction with the OnePlus One, each OnePlus device has a 1080p ad, and each year, their reasoning weakens. While we understand the omission in the previous generation because of the cost, it is now becoming more difficult to accept because economies of scale dictate that the price should now be much lower.
While 1080p is fine, 1440p is better. The additional pixels increase the video consumption and ensure that images appear sharper on your screen. And with the expectation that the OnePlus 6T will contain another large (over 6 inches) display, the additional pixels will be needed to keep the [PPI] at a high enough level.
. 9 A Better DAC and Some Stereo Speakers
This feature is technically a desirable idea, as OnePlus has not made any progress in this department, but thanks to the rooting community it is a possible inclusion. Currently, there is a Magisk module that turns the receiver of the OnePlus 6 into a speaker and produces stereo speakers. Therefore, it is possible for OnePlus to implement something similar to improve the quality of the speaker, which, although loud, is not clear because of the inability to separate the sound.
In the same direction, we hope they improve the headphone jack with a proper DAC. While OnePlus' inclusion of a headphone outlet is commendable, the disability to drive any decent headphones is annoying. Since only LG in the US offers an excellent DAC on their phones, this could be a smartphone of choice for audiophiles looking for great sound paired with a great operating system and good skin condition.
10th Sandstone Glass Back
One of the new features of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 is the ability to add texture to the glass. Instead of feeling like glass, OEMs can now make the glass rougher and slipperier. This would be an excellent opportunity to bring back the sandstone you are familiar with in the OnePlus One. While holding back the glass (which has signal enhancement and the potential for wireless charging), OnePlus could add the rougher texture of Sandstone, making it easier for users to hold the phone.
In addition, they would also use Corning Vibrant Gorilla Glass uses high-resolution photos to alter the look of the phone. For example, they might make the back of the phone look like sandstone. Many OnePlus fans love this look and would allow them to get the most out of new glass while meeting the needs of their customers.
11. Wireless charging
The OnePlus 6 was a challenge for fans. Although OnePlus was the first OnePlus phone with a glass back, it decided against wireless charging despite the cries of its users. With the expectation of another glass back, wireless charging should not be so difficult and even necessary. The new deal with T-Mobile introduces millions of new OnePlus brand customers, many of whom want (and need) wireless charging.
Even though the OnePlus 6 community wanted IP68 water resistance, they were given water-resistant, non-IP protection. Based on JerryRigEverything, it is obvious that OnePlus has included some seals in the OnePlus 6. To avoid the cost of the IP rating, OnePlus decided to skip an official rating and instead use its splash-resistant label. As with wireless charging, new customers will find the features that make up the 6T so far the best option for this feature enhancement.
We keep track of all the rumors
The OnePlus 6T could be a big upgrade for its OnePlus. Since OnePlus is a company of people, it is only right that they eventually add these features, and there is no better time than with the 6T. We will keep you up to date as we learn more.
With the official T-Mobile carrier support, OnePlus 6T should be in the hands of millions of new US customers. How many customers depend largely on what changes they make. While it's still early, we know a great deal about the upcoming phone and the possible specifications and hardware would make this a worthy upgrade. But with the wishful thinking, OnePlus could really make a difference in America and improve the worsening relationship between Chinese companies and the US.
