The OnePlus 6T was available in the discounted rate in the recently concluded Amazon Fab sale, but even after the end of the sale, the device is still available in the discounted price tag. Well, this suggests that the company has reduced the price of the flagship killer of the last year ahead of the upcoming flagship device i.e. OnePlus 7.
New pricing of OnePlus 6T
The flagship killer now available for ₹34,999 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant will be yours for ₹37,999, and the top end of the OnePlus 6T, which is the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage is available at ₹41,999. Having said that, the original price of all the three variants is ₹37,999, ₹41,999, and ₹45,999 respectively.
That’s not all, the e-Commerce giant Amazon has listed an exchange offer, ₹1,500 Instant Discount on ICICI bank Credit and Debit EMI transactions, and ₹50 as Amazon Pay Cashback with No Rush Delivery. The 8GB variants have also listed no-cost EMI option through Amazon Pay ICICI credit cards.
Specifications of OnePlus 6T
The specifications have some improvements, but not much. Starting with the display, this OnePlus 6T has 6.4 inch AMOLED display with FullHD+ resolution 402ppi. It has a screen to body ratio of 85.7% and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. For protection, it has Corning Gorilla Glass 6. As we are talking about the display itself, let’s talk about one of the key features of this device i.e. in-display fingerprint sensor. This is the first OnePlus smartphone and also the first near the stock Android phone to have the in-display fingerprint sensor. The sensor in the half portion of the display, where we can unlock the phone just by touching through the registered fingerprint. Expecting this to work slightly better than many current in-display fingerprint phones.
This OnePlus 6T comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 octa core processor that’s clocked at 2.8Ghz along with Adreno 630 GPU. It has 6/8GB RAM and 128/256GB internal storage. Do note that this time the base variant has 6GB RAM but 128GB internal storage, end of 64GB storage variant from OnePlus. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with near stock OxygenOS on top. This version of OxygenOS brings some new features for the device as well. It has new features like Smart Boost for gaming, Navigation Gesture 2.0, and other internal improvements.
Coming to Camera, it has 16MP Primary Rear Camera with f/1.7 lens, OIS, EIS, Dual Pixel PDAF, and f1.4mm micron sensor. Secondary Rear Camera is a 20MP shooter with f/1.7 lens and autofocus. It can record videos up to 4K at 60fps along with 720p slow motion at 480fps. On the front, it has 20MP camera with an f/1.7 lens. This whole camera setup looks similar to OnePlus 6. But OnePlus has added new features in software this time. The first thing is Nightscape. This feature captures significantly better low light photos i.e. without loosing detail, stabilization, and lesser noise level as well. It’s similar to the Night Mode on latest Pixel 3 series.
It packs in a larger 3700mAh battery with their Quick Charge technology on board to charge this device quickly, at the rate of 5V 2A (Can’t name this Dash Charge). This is the largest ever battery capacity for any OnePlus device. OnePlus stated this large battery as a reason for removing 3.5mm jack. For security, apart from in-display fingerprint this phone also has face unlock. For connectivity, it has Dual 4G VoLTE, dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, and Type-C port. This phone weights at 180 grams and is 8.2mm thick, that’s surely heavier and thicker than many previous OnePlus devices.
