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

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
