OnePlus launches its new OnePlus 6T smartphone

OnePlus is unusual among Chinese tech companies which typically focus on mass-market products for domestic customers

The Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus globally launched its new device OnePlus 6T at an event in NY on Monday. This mid-cycle flagship will succeed the existing flagship from the company, the OnePlus 6.

The new flagship smartphone from OnePlus largely carries the same features that were leaked ahead of its launch. Apparently its responsiveness and speed is up to scratch now, promising a 0.34-second unlocking time.

Not too long ago, Huawei phones were carried by and had plans to expand coverage with more than one United States mobile carrier. On the inside, OnePlus also did a pretty decent job of out doing themselves. From the outside, this can be seen very clearly from the omission of the headphone jack.

It went on: "So we are excited to announce today that Nightscape is going to be coming to the OnePlus 6 starting later this week".

OnePlus has shrunk the front camera notch and reduced the body's chin to give its screen even more real estate, and the 6T's 3700mAh battery is up from the 6's 3300mAh juicebox. If you prefer to listen to music via a wired cable, OnePlus would want you to pick up their USB-C Type-C bullets earphones that costs US$19.95 which is about RM83. However, OnePlus has partnered with T-Mobile to sell the OnePlus 6T in retail stores. The company claims Smart Boost increases how quickly apps launch by up to 20 percent. On the operating system side, there's Android Pie in the form of OnePlus' lightly-skinned Oxygen OS. OnePlus has also once again promised two years of platform updates and three years of security updates. The notch houses a 16MP selfie camera and an ambient light sensor.

Similar hardware aside, the OP6T has new software tricks up its sleeve.

The OnePlus 6T is the latest smartphone from the OnePlus Company.

This OnePlus phone comes with "Screen Unlock", that unlocks the device through the in-display fingerprint sensor, and replaces the conventional rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It comes with OIS/EIS support and Nightscape mode, that is introduced to enhance low-light photography without flash.

Studio Lighting, on the other hand, has been created to recognize faces and adjust the lighting accordingly to simulate professional lighting. You can find out everything you need to know about the OnePlus 6T here. This should help the phone take better pictures in a variety of situations.

To celebrate the launch of the flagship, T-Mobile is working with OnePlus on a trade-in offer of several eligible smartphone devices for a $300 discount when purchasing the OnePlus 6T. In another boon for OnePlus fans in the USA, the 6T adds support for Band 13 LTE, making it compatible with Verizon's CDMA network.

The India launch event will be live streamed exclusively through social media handles as well as official YouTube channel.

Personally, I think it's a good step because I haven't used cable headphones with my smartphone for more than two years.

Pricing for the unlocked OnePlus 6T will start at $549 for the 6GB/128GB model and go up to $579 for the 8GB/128GB model, while the top-end 8GB/256GB model will be priced at $629.
