OnePlus 6T images, specifications leaked days ahead of the announcement

Background: OnePlus had already confirmed a number of details when it comes to this phone, first and foremost, it will be announced on October 29 in NY. The OnePlus 6 was priced at $529, so we should expect a similar price range for the 6T as well. For those who are not aware, OnePlus and Oppo have the same parent company, so any design that OnePlus adopts is first tested on Oppo's phones.

OnePlus 6T runs on Android 9 Pie with a layer of OxygenOS. However, several important aspects of the latest OnePlus smartphone have surfaced online. At the front, it is rumored to feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, which will be larger than 6.28-inch screen seen on the OnePlus 6 and feature a teardrop notch, which will be narrower than the notch seen on its predecessor. This is about what we expected, but now it's seemingly been confirmed ahead of the reveal event. The superior quality customizable skins are made exclusively for OnePlus 6T. Interested buyers can watch the launch event live. The event will start at 11:00 AM Eastern Time, so stay tuned for the latest updates.

Oh my god. We are freaking out right now.

OnePlus has also teased that the OnePlus 6T will feature improved camera functionality, although the camera hardware is likely to be the same that is inside the OnePlus6. Under the skin, the phone will continue to carry Qualcomm's flagship chipset - Snapdragon 845 that will be clubbed up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of ROM. Within the notch is the 20MP front camera, while the rear of the phone boasts a dual 16MP + 20MP camera setup. The other photo also shows the USB Type C cable and the charging plug. Though the top and bottom sides can not be seen, the company has stated that there is not going to be a 3.5mm audio jack present. So, it will help users to easily unlock the device. One thing we do know is that smartphone will allow instant access to Google Assistant by holding the power button for 0.5 seconds.

Express.co.uk will be covering the OnePlus 6T's reveal live, too. However, it had to make some intense last minute efforts to change the date of the launch due that coincided with Apple Inc.'s event. The OnePlus 6T, which succeeds the OnePlus 6, will be launched at an event in NY. The Chinese smartphone maker is hosting an event in NY where it will officially launch the device.
