By LucyEva 3 months ago

Four months after the release of OnePlus 6, OnePlus has all set to announce its second flagship smartphone named OnePlus 6T price Australia. Earlier Chinese smartphone brand “OnePlus” didn’t reveal much about OnePlus 6T but countless rumors and suggestions have confirmed that it’s going to land on shelves before October 2018 is out. OnePlus itself has officially put numerous teasers and introduced OnePlus 6T Lab Community review program.

This program will help users worldwide to get their hands on one before its official launch. All users need to do is to apply for a program to use the upcoming OnePlus 6T flagship smartphone and write a community review. Well, Lab Community Program is aside for a short while, OnePlus has revealed all OnePlus 6T Specifications including 6.4-inches AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 845 Chipset, Water-drop Notch, dual rear camera and 3700mAh non-removable battery. Keep scrolling for more information.

Release Date

The rumoured OnePlus 6T release date in Australia will be October 17, rumors suggest. That date comes from what appears to be an invitation to an event. Be noted, it’s not yet confirmed that this is an official invite. It’s just a simple line indicated by some online sources which also claim that it’ll launch in October.

Aside from October, some online sources are suggesting OnePlus 6T will arrive in November – that’s when OnePlus 5T arrived back in 2017 and OnePlus 3T in 2016. That sounds believable, isn’t it?

Price

How much OnePlus 6T Price in Australia will be? It’s something we’re short on words on, for now. But OnePlus has said that due to several new components and eye-catching design, OnePlus 6T will set users back around a little more.

That’s not surprising, at least for us. The OnePlus 6 started at AU$840 but OnePlus 6T will go higher. Even it won’t be anywhere near to Apple iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy Note 9. That’s all we know so far.

OnePlus 6T indeed has an extensive amount of decent features over OnePlus 5T. The OnePlus 6T Specifications in Australia include massive and bright 6.4-inches screen, 12MP + 20MP rear and 25MP FaceTime sensor. Rest of the details are as follow.

Design and Display

As OnePlus 6T isn’t official yet but OnePlus has confirmed some features such as an on-screen fingerprint scanner named Screen Unlock. OnePlus has revealed that OnePlus 6T will have more unibody design as compared to its predecessor and will be 0.45mm thicker over OnePlus 6 – apparently making it 8.25 mm thick overall.

The leaked images are showing a water-drop like Notch above the screen instead of a large Notch on OnePlus 6. Outback, you’ll see a dual-camera configuration but an LED flash has been moved slightly as there’s no fingerprint scanner. Users will have only 2 colour options to choose from – Mirror Black (Glass Back) and Midnight Black (Metal Back).

A questionable looking listing published by Gizbot (Chinese Retailer) has claimed that OnePlus 6T will be backed by a gorgeous and bright 6.4-inches AMOLED-based screen with a maximum resolution of 1080 x 2340 Pixels and 91.5% screen-to-body ratio. Nothing else he revealed about the OnePlus 6T screen.

Camera

Chances are OnePlus 6T will carry the same camera which we’ve already seen in Oppo R17 and Oppo R17 Pro. The handset has a 12MP variable aperture lens which can switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4 aperture. The main 12MP sensor is coupled with a 20MP sensor that has an aperture of f/2.6. Performance-wise, it’s up to the mark and will let users capture beautiful colors and more and more details.

Selfies and video, on the other hand, are assisted by a super-gorgeous 25MP FaceTime sensor with an aperture of f/2.0. OnePlus 6T camera features include LED Flash, HDR, Panorama, Geo-Tagging and much more. Most important of all, one can record videos at 2160p@30fps, 1080p@60/120fps and 720p@240fps.

Performance, OS, and Storage

OnePlus 6T will be armed with the best Qualcomm Snapdragon Chipset available around (845) alongside a whopping 8GB of RAM (insane amount of RAM). The question is, do you really need that much amount of RAM? Well, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and 8GB of RAM give users a smooth and silky experience whether you work on plentiful apps simultaneously or play graphics-intensive games.

The OnePlus 6T will run on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box and will start getting updates of Android Pie 9.0 as soon as November starts.

And as far as OnePlus 6T’s onboard memory is concerned, users will have massive 128GB of onboard memory for storing an ample amount of data such as images, videos, files, documents, and even movies. Most interestingly, OnePlus 6T will allow users to expand its onboard memory further up to 256GB with the help of a microSD card (used SIM 2 slot).

Headphone Jack

Co-founder of OnePlus “Carl Pei” has confirmed that OnePlus 6T won’t have a standard headphone jack as OnePlus believes now it’s a time to remove it in order to bring new Technology to the handset. Don’t be scared as OnePlus will include an adapter in a box – allowing users to plug a 3.5mm connected headphones into a smartphone – although you won’t be able to charge it at the same time.

The company has also announced that its Type-C Bullets headphones can be plugged directly into the USB-C port of OnePlus 6T without a need for an adapter.

Battery

OnePlus has confirmed that OnePlus 6T will be backed by improved battery but it’s yet to be clear how improvement will be achieved. It could be the use of more efficient chips, a change in screen technology, an increase in battery size or a mixer of things. But Company won’t be drawn into giving further information about it.

It’s likely that OnePlus 6T will house 3700mAh non-removable battery – 400mAh extra battery as compared to OnePlus 6’s 3300mAh. It sounds like moderate users and a light user will easily go through an entire day with mixed activities such as playing games, watching videos and surfing Internet whereas heavy user would need to restore juice before going to bed. We do know that OnePlus 6T wouldn’t have wireless charging as OnePlus has confirmed as much.
