Just a five months after its launch . it’s already out of stock and effectively dead , making way for the predictably named “ONEPLUS 6T” . the company has told us in the past that it isn’t interested in sitting around and waiting for a predetermined amount of time if it has new technology to ship , and we take that to mean that it doesn’t ever want competitors products to seem newer and fresher , its an approach that has worked well so far , and no one,s expecting buyers upgrade with every single release .
In the past successive models have usually meant moving to a “Better processor” delivering “Improved cameras” or adopting ” New industry trends” or standard . this time it’s all about a “New finger sensor” and a “Smaller notch” – oh , and the company’s “First ever partnership with a US carrier” . which is probably the biggest reason to whip up a new model this soon . the one plus 6t with a new fingerprint reader and a smaller notch .
OnePlus 6T Design :- The one plus 6t does feel somewhat fresh in term of keeping up with trends , but not much has change the over the past five months , so the difference between the phone and its predecessor are subtle . first of all the chunky notch has been replaced with a slight “water drop” dip for the front5 camera . it’s exactly like what we’ve seen on the opp f9 review, vivo v11 pro review & realme 2 pro review all from companies that are under the BBK electronics umbrella , just like one plus . the earpiece is designed into glass meets the phone’s metal rim , and it’s not too small to cause discomfort .
The biggest downside of this notch design is the death of the popular multi-colour notification LED that’s been a oneplus staple till now . the loss is somewhat offset by the ambient display feature that lets OLED screen light up to show notification , but that is always on , so you can’t tell at a glance if there are alerts for you to check . the screen is slightly larger then that of the oneplus 6 , at 6.41 inches compared to 6.2 inches before . if you place the two phones next to each other , you’ll notice that new model’s bottom “CHIN” has reduced , making the very slim border around the screen look almost uniform on all four sides . the corners have very wild curves , and unfortunately some UI element and full screen apps awkwardly .
That brings us to biggest new feature of the oneplus 6T – its in display fingerprint sensor oneplus says that it has experimented with this technology for over a year , and had even developed prototypes of the one plus 5t with it , before ultimately deciding that it wasn’t yet good enough to ship then .we’ll have a lot more details about how well this works later on in the review .in addition to the loss of the notification LED , there’s no 3.5mm audio jack . this will be the most controversial feature give oneplus vocal difference of the analogue standard and ribbing of its competitors in the recent past . according to the company , it was necessary in order in order to accommodate a larger battery and hard were a larger battery and hard were for the in-display fingerprint sensor . The oneplus 6t feels very well built .we had a mirror black review unit and it wasn’t too slippery . this phone looks great other then the smudges it picks up .
