OnePlus 6T rumors mills have slowly gained steam and the latest leak comes in the form of an alleged launch teaser reported by Cnet which indicates that OnePlus may officially launch OnePlus 6T next month on October 17. The alleged teaser also indicates that the new flagship device may feature an In-display fingerprint sensor as rumored earlier.
Cnet reports that OnePlus has confirmed that OnePlus 6T will have a fingerprint reader in the display which basically confirms the earlier leaks where we have seen the alleged Retail box of the phone with a sketch showing the in-display fingerprint sensor.
At the moment, an In-display fingerprint sensor is available on Vivo smartphones such as Vivo V11, X20 Plus UD, Vivo X21 & Vivo Nex) along with Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design and in Oppo R17 Pro. OnePlus 6T will be the first device from OnePlus with the fingerprint reader embedded into the display if this turns out as true.
In an email to Cnet, OnePlus said “We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action. By adding this feature as an addition to other display unlocking options such as Face Unlock, users will have options to unlock the display in a way that is most efficient for them.”
Rumors indicate that OnePlus 6T may use Oppo R17 Pro as the base device and may turn out to be a clone of Oppo R17 Pro, which has been the case with earlier OnePlus flagship devices using the same design as that of Oppo. The rumors also indicate triple camera at rear with a variable aperture camera (the bottom one out of the three sensors) with variable f/1.5 and the f/2.4 aperture that can be adjusted automatically.
Recapping the OnePlus 6 specifications, it sports a 6.29-inch Optic AMOLED display having Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection with a notch having ~84% screen-to-body ratio. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with 6GB / 8GB of RAM and runs on Android 8.1 (Oreo) based operating system with OxygenOS 5.1 on top. It features a dual camera module at rear consisting of 16MP Sony IMX519 primary sensor & secondary 20MP Sony IMX376K sensor while on the front there is a 16MP front-shooter with Sony IMX371 sensor for selfies & video calls. The phone is backed by 3300mAh battery with Dash Charge (5V – 4A)support.
