Rear triple cameras: 20MP+12MP+TOF 3D, 25MP front selfie camera.
6GB/8GB RAM, 64GB/128GB/256GB storage.
Oxygen OS base on Android 9.0 Pie.
How they will differ remains to be seen, officially, but early rumors suggest the 6T will feature a slightly larger OLED display, which will include a fingerprint sensor under the display.
The camera will also likely get some attention too; there has been talk of a 3D Dual-Lens sensor on the back, which would be quite a nifty USP for the handset.
The main thing, however, appears to be the display – it’s larger and better than the panel on the OnePlus 6. Fewer bezels, better detail, and, of course, that built-in fingerprint scanner.
If all of this lines up and turns out to be true, OnePlus could have a very compelling handset on its hands.
Not only would it be the first to implement an on-screen fingerprint scanner inside the display, but it would also have a dramatically improved camera with more features.
And for anyone rocking a OnePlus 5T, the phone will almost certainly be worth the upgrade.
In this respect, OnePlus’ business model makes a lot of sense; it knows it has users on T models and ones on whole number models. With this in mind, it has effectively created two types of user cycles.
Attach a great price, which is a given, and you’re looking at plenty of long-term brand loyalists that’ll patiently wait 6-12 months in between updates for their new handset.
