OnePlus 6T Confirmed: Release Date, Price & Specs

It's the latest OnePlus phone but as ever, it's also now the only one you can buy. Is it the best one yet? Here's all the info on the OnePlus 6T.

OnePlus has dropped the headphone jack from its latest phone, the OnePlus 6T. Despite championing the feature as recently as six months previous, the company has joined the rest of the industry in axing the jack.

This has meant the OnePlus 6T gains an in-screen fingerprint sensor that wouldn’t have been possible, while a larger battery is also squeezed into a phone that has a smaller notch than the OnePlus 6.

Here’s all the info you need on the OnePlus 6T

How much is the OnePlus 6T?
The phone costs from £499 in the UK and $549 in the US, making it £30/$20 than the OnePlus 6, which sold from £469/$529.

There are more expensive versions with extra RAM and storage also available - see below for a full price table. In the UK you can get it direct or from Amazon, O2, EE, Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse.

Grab it from T-Mobile in the US.
UK priceUS priceEurope price
Mirror Black - 6+128GB£499$549€549
Mirror or Midnight Black - 8+128GB£529$579€579
Midnight Black - 8+256GB£579$629€629
When is the OnePlus 6T coming out?
Announced at an event in New York on 29 October, the OnePlus 6T will go on sale 6 November, or 1 November in the US.

What’s new on the OnePlus 6T?
The OnePlus 6T has an in-screen fingerprint sensor, joining the Huawei Mate 20 Pro as one of the first smartphones in the western market to have one. 

It’s a glass slab with a huge 6.41in display though it’s a little thicker and taller than the OnePlus 6 in order to squeeze in a larger 3700mAh battery. At launch it’ll be available in a glossy Mirror Black or a matte Midnight Black.

OnePlus’ Dash Charge tech is still one of the best wired fast charging methods in the business. Despite being glass the phone cannot wirelessly charge – and there’s no headphone jack for the first time on a OnePlus phone. There’s a dongle in the box.

The phone is very similar in design to the OnePlus 6 with the back looking pretty much identical save for the loss of the regular fingerprint sensor. Even the camera hardware on the 6T is identical to what was seen on the 6.

But there is a new ‘nightscape’ mode that attempts to produce better low-light shots to rival the industry-best results of the Huawei P20 Pro.

There’s also the same Snapdragon 845 processor and 6GB or 8GB RAM depending on which model you buy. OnePlus has dropped the 64GB model, so you can either get a 128GB or 256GB version.

It’s safe to say this is one of the best smartphones out there for the price, even if OnePlus can’t sell them for £300 like the good old days of the OnePlus 3. The 6T has a smaller notch than on the 6 but it’s still there, sporting the front facing camera while the speaker is in the top edge of the phone itself.

OnePlus continues to refuse to officially certify the 6T with an official IP rating, though insists it is ‘water resistant’, with silicone rings in the buttons and foam in the port to prevent accidental water damage.

The phone runs Android 9 Pie out the box and gives you the option to use Google’s new navigation bar or OnePlus’ own swipe gestures.

Full OnePlus 6T specs:
  • Android 9 Pie with OxygenOS
  • 6.41in OLED, 19.5:9, 2340 x 1080, 402ppi

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

2019 Lincoln Continental Review

If you’re tired of the same old luxury options, the 2019 Lincoln Continental provides a refreshingly retro-cool alternative.
The 2019 Lincoln Continental is a big, luxurious American sedan at a time when Americans are hardly buying big, luxurious American sedans anymore. Regardless, it’s a throwback ride with plenty of character, great value, lots of power, and a classic nameplate. We give it 7.5 out of 10 overall.
Among European and Japanese rivals with established models – S-Class, 7 Series, LS – this Lincoln stands out for several reasons, chief among them its nameplate. With the Continental, Lincoln has one of the most storied American car names.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.
