Barely six months since the launch of the OnePlus 6, OnePlus is rolling out a beefier model. How’s that for never settling. The turbocharged OnePlus 6T was recently launched in New York and it’s making its way to Malaysia on 8 November. The new flagship boasts a bigger, more immersive display, an in-display fingerprint sensor and fast-charging.
Design-wise, the OnePlus 6T isn’t a huge departure from its predecessor however there are several key differences. On the front, you’ll notice a tiny waterdrop notch, similar to the one found on the OPPO F9 and Realme 2 Pro. Not a big surprise, since they’re all from the tree. There’s a slight chin at the bottom but 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED display spans edge-to-edge, delivering an astonishing 91.5 percent screen-to-body ratio. That’s more screen than the OPPO Find X and second only to the just-announced Lenovo Z5 Pro.
The rear is missing a fingerprint scanner, making the glass back cleaner and more minimalistic.
Under the hood, the device is powered by the familiar Snapdragon 845, one of the most powerful mobile processors at the moment. This powerful chipset is coupled with the Adreno 630 GPU, up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB of storage. The OnePlus 6 has been in the top 3 on the AnTuTu benchmark leaderboard for some time, and I’d expect the OnePlus 6T to be ranked within that range.
The device comes with a decently sized 3,700mAh battery that should keep it running for a full day. When juice does run low though, OnePlus’ “Dash Charge” fast-charging technology via USB Type-C will give you an additional five hours of usage with just 10 minutes of charging.
The OnePlus 6T retains the 16MP f/1.7 + 20MP f/1.7 dual-lens camera system found on the OnePlus 6. It comes with PDAF and optical image stabilisation (OIS) for stills and videos. The pixel size remains the same at 1.22 micron pixels for its main sensor.
On the front, there’s a 16MP f/2.0 front-facing shooter. Judging from the OnePlus 6, the seflies should be pretty good.
After being standard feature for so long, the headphone jack finally makes an exit on the OnePlus 6T.
The OnePlus 6T runs Oxygen OS based on Android 9.0 Pie.
OnePlus 6T will be offered in three configurations:
- 6GB RAM + 128GB storage – MYR2,588
- 8GB RAM + 128GB storage – MYR2,888
- 8GB RAM + 256GB storage – MYR3,188
Pre-orders are available until 7 November 2018 via the official OnePlus store on Lazada Malaysia. Alternatively, orders can be placed via phone by contacting official distributor Mi Han Sdn Bhd at 03-20274666. The OnePlus 6T will be in-store starting 8 November 2018.
