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.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
