T-Mobile will carry the new OnePlus 6T, the first time a phone from the popular Chinese manufacturer has been offered by a US wireless provider. The AMOLED screen on the OnePlus 6T is slightly larger than the OnePlus 6's, coming in at 6.41 inches with a resolution of 2340×1080.
We're rounding up all the news of the pre-order deals for the OnePlus 6T here - as it's no longer just on O2 and other network will be carrying it in the UK. The company says that the exclusion of the headphone jack was necessary to make room for the in-display fingerprint sensor.
What's the price of a OnePlus 6T phone? The metal back still shows some level of durability even though you can just slap a protective casing on for more protection as harder metal will leave permanent scratches. OnePlus claims the handset can last "through a day's work with battery life to spare" although the specs list doesn't explicitly state expected battery life.
Moving to the camera, the device will have a dual-camera setup with 16MP and 20MP sensors on the back. Although OnePlus's previous smartphones have been available in the country unlocked, the launch of the OnePlus 6T marks the first occasion on which the OEM offered one of its smartphone models in the U.S.in collaboration with one of the country's carriers, which should greatly contribute to the brand's recognition. The OnePlus 6T boasts a Snapdragon 845 processor paired with up to 8GB of RAM, and there's up to 256GB of built-in storage.
Donald Trump expects 'great deal' with China over trade
Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index was 0.1% lower at 11:04 a.m. local time Tuesday, while the Shanghai Composite Index gained 0.9%. Risk appetite got a lift after Trump's commented that he may be more ready than China to do a deal.
Carphone Warehouse is also selling the OnePlus 6T on contract or SIM-free, and Amazon or John Lewis will both have the phone available to buy outright. If fingerprint unlocking is too "old school" for you, you can also use OnePlus' Face Unlock feature.
And a Smart Boost feature will improve app cold start speeds by between 5 and 20 per cent.
The OnePlus 6T offers a bigger battery than its predecessor.
The OnePlus 6T comes in "Mirror Black" and "Midnight Black" finishes and will be available starting 1st November in Europe and the US. With the OnePlus 6T, the company is introducing Nightscape feature which is set to improve the night photography. Although the smartphone doesn't support wireless charging technology, it does comes with the company's proprietary Fast Charge fast charging technology. The company has also collaborated with T-Mobile as their telecom partner in the US. Many will rue the absence of a conventional audio socket for headphones, though a USB Type-C version of OnePlus's bullet headphones is included in the box.
