Along with the phone, you will get the Dash Charger and USB Type-C cable which you can connect for charging as well as for the USB cable to connect the smartphone with the PC. You will also get a USB Type-C adaptor which will help you to connect your old 3.5 mm headphone with the device, and a SIM eject pin. Moreover, the smartphone is also coming with pre-applied screen guard and you will also get a flexible Silicon cover to protect the rear side from unwanted scratches. And of course, the box also has warranty paper and user manual. Having said that, inside the box you will also see a letter, which is written by the CEO of the OnePlus, and it shows that how much the company values its customers.


In the past years, we saw that the smartphone brand does not make too many changes in its ‘T’ series. However, this year, the company has made huge changes in the OnePlus 6T, when we compare with the predecessor. As we can see that the new device is coming with a fresh design and it also keeps the trend. The new device is coming with a small waterdrop notch instead of the chunky notch which we have on the OnePlus 6. The device also looks big and the bezels are slim, and the build looks nice, tough and also it has a glass body. The rear side of the smartphone has a dual camera setup and OnePlus branding, it is covered with glass, and the smartphone is protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 6. Moving to the right side of the device has the power button along with the alert slider, and left side of the device, it has the volume rockers and SIM card tray, and in the bottom of the device has a USB Type-C port and speaker. The device doesn’t support the wireless charging support nor IP certification, only splash resistance is there. That’s a disappointing stuff, but it’s okay.

The all new OnePlus 6T has a 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED Full HD+ display with 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution, along with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a small notch at the top, and it can be hidden (Thank God 😍). The device also allows you to use the Ambient Display and it will give better viewing angles and the screen is visible in outdoor, and the display is very bright as well as crisp. The smartphone also has Night Mode and Reading Mode.

The smartphone is powered by 2.8 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 845 processor, as it is the flagship chipset and fastest too. Moreover, the device further paired with up to 8 GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256 GB UFS 2.1 internal storage. That means, it is faster and users will not face any lag. The device also has Adreno 630 for the graphical task, and that gives really awesome graphics. I also played some popular games like PUBG and Asphalt 9: Legends, both of them ran smoothly and I did not face any lag or performance issue while playing the game.


The OnePlus 6T has 16 megapixel + 20 megapixel dual cameras at the rear side and a 16 megapixel front camera. That said, both the rear and front cameras are powered by the Sony Exmor sensors, and the camera department also supports an optical image stabilizer, 480fps slow motion, 4K at 60fps slow motion, Portrait mode, along with the new Night mode feature. The Night mode will serve you with better low-light shots, but to use this feature, you need to keep the device still until it captures. It is worth to mention that, the front camera is not that awesome. But it is pretty decent under the Portrait mode.  Overall, the camera department of the device is pretty good.
