OnePlus posts official OnePlus 6T render

As for an IP rating, well, the OnePlus 6T will be more water resistant than any previous OnePlus phone, it just won't have a rating. Keeping the headphone jack allows our users to continue to take full advantage of the excellent range of audio choices on the market.

It's not clear when the OnePlus 6T will be released although if the 5T is anything to go by then it could be in the next couple of months. "Screen Unlock technology is something very new and there's a definite cost required for that new technology", said Lau in the interview. [You'll] realise that it's the experience that you wanted.

Lau also revealed that there's still no wireless charging, explaining that he would want the phone to be able to charge as fast wirelessly as it can using the company's wired Dash Charge, which now would mean making it thicker and conducting a lot of heat, neither of which is desirable. In my opinion the software experience on a OnePlus device is second to none, including Pixel phones which puts their OnePlus 6T at the top of my list of phones I want to try out - now if only I could buy one here in Australia. It is also expected to boast faster Warp Charge (aka Dash Charge) technology. It has been also reported that the inclusion of the on-screen fingerprint display has made the smartphone 0.45 mm thicker than OnePlus 6 (Review).

Another hint given by Pete Lau during the interaction with CNET is regarding the price of the OnePlus 6T.

"This has been one of the most hard decisions for us to make", said Lau. With the OnePlus 6T, the company might not apply for any IP certifications, but we still think it comes with the same kind of protection as seen on its predecessor.

Lau also confirmed there will be no wireless charging on the 6T.

OnePlus is clearly not making any effort of hiding the imminent arrival of its OnePlus 6T. That's because the parts that OnePlus won't change concern the hardware.

The OnePlus 6T is the successor to the OnePlus 6 and is expected to follow tradition by packing a litany of flagship features in a device that costs lower than all of its premium rivals.

OnePlus will launch the new OnePlus 6T smartphone on October 17th.
