OnePlus 6T Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

Wireless charging, waterproofing, a notch-free 19:9 display, an in-display fingerprint scanner and up to five cameras could be in store for November's OnePlus 6T release. That's even more exciting now we know the in-display fingerprint sensor will be reserved for only the premium Galaxy S10 models.

There's also talk of it being one of the first phones to run Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855. OnePlus and Qualcomm are long-term hardware partners, and sources suggest the success of the OnePlus 6 might convince the chip maker to release an early batch of the 7nm Snapdragon 855 for the OnePlus 6T. We think the Snapdragon 845 is a much more likely choice, but we hope to be corrected on that.

When is the next OnePlus phone coming out?
As a startup company back in 2014 OnePlus got off to something of a rocky start with its first release in April, but having since got its act into gear the smartphone maker has unveiled two new Android phones every year. Why should 2018 be any different? 
  • OnePlus 6 release date: 22 May 2018
  • OnePlus 5T: 21 November 2017
  • OnePlus 5 release date: 11 June 2017
  • OnePlus 3T release date: 15 November 2016
  • OnePlus 3 release date: 14 June 2016
  • OnePlus X release date: 29 October 2015
  • OnePlus 2 release date: 28 July 2015
  • OnePlus 1 release date: 23 April 2014
If you look at the release-date pattern it's clear that we get one release in the summer (typically June), and one in the autumn (typically November). Aside from the OnePlus X, which we can regard as something of a blip given that CEO Pete Lau has already ruled out the possibility of a follow-up device on Twitter, each autumn release is a 'T' model that is an incremental upgrade on the summer release rather than a full refresh.

We're putting our money on a mid-November 2018 release for a OnePlus 6T.

How much will the OnePlus 6T cost?
OnePlus works hard to keep its pricing low and relatively constant, so we wouldn't expect to see the price rise any higher than the current OnePlus 6's £469 RRP. That's for the 6GB/64GB model, and there's also an 8GB/128GB model at £519.

Potential new features in the OnePlus 6T
The 'T' models are typically tweaked versions of the previous release - usually with a processor bump, and in the 5T we also saw the introduction of an 18:9 display. But the OnePlus 6 is already running the latest processor, and it already has an 18:9 display with dual-camera at the rear. Realistically, where can the company go with the next model?

Wireless charging
This one's not just a hunch: OnePlus hinted to us during the OnePlus 6 launch that the new glass back might allow it to add wireless charging at some point in the future. All the main competitors have wireless charging, so it's time for OnePlus to join the trend.

Waterproofing
The OnePlus 6 has improved water-resistance, but it's not fully waterproof. We'd like to see IP68 waterproofing, in line with rivals.

Removal of the notch
When OnePlus added a notch screen to its OnePlus 6 it had no way of knowing just how much it would upset fans. In the end the company promised to allow the notch to be removed through a software tweak, but we think the next step will be no notch by default.

Enhanced photography
One of the most anticipated launches of 2018 has been the Huawei P20 Pro, which boasts three cameras at the rear. The video shown at the top of the page shows such an arrangement for the OnePlus 6T (16Mp+20Mp+8Mp), but do note it's merely a concept and such a feature may not be present in the device that is eventually released in November.

Also in this concept video is a pop-up 16Mp dual-camera at the front, similar to the Vivo Nex series, and taking the total camera count up to five. Is it just wishful thinking?

Snapdragon 855
We think this rumour unlikely, and don't expect to see any Snapdragon 855 smartphones until 2019, but there are whispers that the success of the OnePlus 6 will encourage Qualcomm to release the 855 early for the upcoming 6T. 

OnePlus 6T specification rumours
Some of the specifications suggested by the concept video seem very likely, but others not so much - the in-display fingerprint sensor, for example, is something we'd expect to see reserved for the OnePlus 7. We've listed each spec below:
  • Glass front and rear with aluminium frame
  • 6.4in Full-HD+ (1080x2280, 19:9) Optic AMOLED touchscreen, Gorilla Glass 6
  • In-display fingerprint scanner
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 845/855
  • Adreno 630
  • 6/8GB RAM
  • 64/128/256GB storage
  • Triple rear camera: 16Mp + 20Mp + 8Mp, f/1.7, OIS, dual-LED flash
  • Dual front pop-up camera: 16Mp + 16Mp, f/1.8, Auto HDR, 1440p
  • 3D Face ID recognition
  • USB-C 3.0
  • 3840mAh battery, Dash Charge
  • Android 8.1 Oreo with Oxygen OS 5.1.8
  • Available in black, red and white

At £150, Nokia's budget handset has to be compared to the very best cheap phones. How does it stack up?
Should I Buy The Nokia 4.2?
The 4.2 has shown that Nokia can still produce good hardware, and combined with the slick user interface on Android One it provides an enjoyable user experience. This fully featured modern handset produces consistently solid performance, with above average cameras and impressive battery life. 
However, it is let down by a low resolution screen, poor implementation of biometrics and some stubborn design choices.

Google Pixel 4 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

Google has released the first images of Pixel 4 ahead of its October launch. Here's what we know so far about the Pixel 4 and 4 XL.
Following months of rumours and concept artwork, Google has put the cat among the pigeons by releasing a genuine render (above) of Pixel 4 via its Twitter page: this is the real deal.
Rocking the same square camera module that leaked earlier this week via @OnLeaks and @PriceBaba, the image also reveals that the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor has disappeared, suggesting Google will join the in-display fingerprint sensor trend. The earlier leak also revealed that the speaker grilles moved to the bottom of the handset.
