OnePlus, a Chinese tech giant, is known to launch two devices in a year, that too in a premium segment. After launching OnePlus 6 in May, the company has come up with its new model OnePlus 6T this October for Rs 37,999 (6GB RAM and 128 GB ROM).

The first question that come to mind is: What are the new features they have added to this version? The answer is: Plenty ~ larger screen, small notch, more storage, enhanced battery capacity and, the most important, in-display fingerprint sensor.

Should one replace One- Plus 6 with 6T? Of course not, it is not advisable to change a phone just for a small notch and on-display fingerprint sensor. But if you own 5T, you should switch immediately. However, in this price range the phone has no competitor as it has everything that premium device has ~ design, fast performances, long battery life and on-screen fingerprint. But the phone has only one shortcoming ~ its camera performance at night. Here One- Plus should have worked on the phone. But overall, it is a good phone.

Design and display

Nothing much has changed when it comes to design. It looks quite similar to its predecessor, OnePlus6. The front and back are made up of glass and its frame is metal. The changes the company has made in this variant is they have replaced the 3.5mm headphone jack with a USB-C and added fingerprint sensor on the lower part of the display. On the rear of the phone one can find the camera and OnePlus branding. The right edge has a power button and a button for silent/ring/vibrate. On the left are volume rockers and dual- SIM tray.

In terms of display, the phone has a 6.41-inch FHD+ (2340×1080) optic AMOLED display, which is sharp and bright. One won’t face problems viewing the phone in direct sunlight or at any angle.

Specifications and performance

The phone has powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, with Adreno 630 GPU and it comes with 6GB/8GB of RAM. It is equipped with 128GB and 256GB internal storage, which can’t be expanded. With this powerful specification, the phone performs brilliantly. One doesn’t face any problem while multi-tasking, browsing, watching videos, playing heavy games or switching apps ~ it performs without any lag.

Battery and camera

OnePlus 6T comes with a dual rear camera setup, which includes 16-MP primary sensor and 20-MP secondary sensor while the front camera is a 16-MP camera. Along with it the phone comes with many camera features like Portrait mode, screen flash, studio lighting, and HDR. However, the pictures clicked in daytime are very good but at night time they are average.
