OnePlus 6T will mark its global debut in India on October 30. The confirmation comes via OnePlus official Twitter handle whereby the company has mentioned the launch timing and venue of the OnePlus 6T launch event. The upcoming flagship model will be unveiled in New Delhi at KDJW Stadium on October 30 at 8:30 pm IST. OnePlus fans can get their launch invitation from October 17.
OnePlus has also introduced launch invites, which will be available at Rs 999 via oneplus.in from 10:00 AM IST on Wednesday, October 17, 2018. This will be a global launch event and attendees will be the first in the world to experience the OnePlus 6T at the experience zone at the launch venue, claims the company.
The device is expected to pack an in-display fingerprint sensor and feature a much smaller notch than Apple’s latest iPhones and (apparently) the Google Pixel 3XL. On the downside, it will apparently lose the 3.5mm headphone jack, forcing you to either adapt the USB-C connector or use OnePlus’ upcoming USB-C Bullets V2 earphones.
If the rumor is accurate, the in-display fingerprint scanner would be a rare feature only found on several Vivo and Xiaomi models, along with Huawei’s pricey Porsche Design Mate RS. The phone will supposedly also feature a face unlock feature, also no mean feat considering that there’s only room for a front-facing camera and no other sensors thanks to the (reportedly) smaller notch.
OnePlus has also confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will not come with wireless charging support or IP rating water and dust resistance. The new OnePlus flagship model is expected to offer Corning Gorilla Glass protection. Several reports indicate that the upcoming OnePlus 6T will have design cue similar to the Oppo R17. The phone is tipped to feature a waterdrop style notch display.
