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 OnePlus much-needed marketing, something that the company has reluctantly increased as it would hamper their ability to offer the phone at a low price.
Overall, there will be two variants of the phone, one for T-Mobile, which has been optimized for the carrier's network and the global version for 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.
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 Qualcomm is likely to store the SoC for 2019 smartphones, remember that when OnePlus debuted the T-Series (with the 3T), the biggest difference was the new chipset.
The inclusion of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 would involve quite a few improvements bring, like 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.
. 6 It could be based on the Oppo R17 design
Recently, OnePlus has borrowed Oppos Design for their devices. With Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus, who all have the same parent company, BBK, can feel this borrowing, and it is likely that the 6T will follow. We suspect that OnePlus 6T will be based on the Oppo R17. The design is similar to that of OnePlus 6, but includes some enhancements such as an even smaller display notch and a slightly larger display.
The R17 does not have a physical fingerprint scanner, but an in-display scanner. Although this could possibly continue with the new technology, it is likely that OnePlus will wait for the cost to go down before it is introduced to its smartphones. This would mean that OnePlus could develop a design with a backside fingerprint scanner similar to the OnePlus 5T and 6.
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 mean a return to the OnePlus 6T.
Most OnePlus users would agree that while the Oppo R17 design is good and safe, what would distinguish this phone would be a design based on the Vivo Nex S or Oppo Find X and her almost completely frameless display. With a design so different and beautiful, the 6T would feel like the OnePlus One, a phone that was too good for its price.
Such a dramatic design would highlight it among the many phones it will compete with on T-Mobile shelves. While its price will still help push it ahead of competing cell phones from Motorola, LG and HTC with a design as fat as the Oppo Find X, it would make a customer think twice before taking the much pricier Samsung Counterpart chooses.
