The OnePlus 6T mobile features a 6.41″ (16.28 cm) display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels and runs on Android v9.0 (Pie) operating system. The device is powered by Octa-core (2.8 GHz, Quad core, Kryo 385 + 1.8 GHz, Quad core, Kryo 385) processor paired with 6 GB of RAM. As far as the battery is concerned it has 3700 mAh. Over that, as far as the rear camera is concerned this mobile has a 16 MP + 20 MP camera Exmor RS sensor supporting a resolution of 4616 x 3464 Pixels and the front snapper is powered by an Exmor RS sensor. Other sensors include the Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Compass, Gyroscope. So, does it have a fingerprint sensor? Yes, it does. For graphical performance that can make games run smoothly, this phone has got an Adreno 630 GPU. Onboard storage is at 128 GB with the option to expand the memory by No. Design is one of the most important factors when it comes to mobiles. This phone is 8.2 mm slim and weighs 185 grams.
‘Unlock the speed’ is not just for the in-display fingerprint sensor here. It somewhere applies to OnePlus 6T’s overall performance as well. The fact that OnePlus 6 was already in the Android 9 Pie beta program it was safe to assume that 6T will come with Android Pie out of the box. The OxygenOS is as snappy as it gets and like we have mentioned before, it is faster and more responsive than Samsung’s Experience UI, Xiaomi’s MIUI or Huawei’s EMUI. If you compare it with OnePlus 6, not much will be there to differentiate but then you do get some software tweaks when it comes to cameras and in-display fingerprint gestures.
Yes, the Screen Unlock, unlike other smartphones, doesn’t just give you the access to the handset’s home screen but also acts as a quick launch shortcut for different apps. We did try a couple of them and while the success rate is good, it did miss reading our fingerprints a couple of times. It’s a nifty way to access your favourite apps but we’re yet to see how many actually use it.
One of the 6T’s new tricks is the in-display fingerprint sensor. OnePlus has a flashy animation when you press the sensor that looks like a little ball of lightning. If you want something a bit more understated, there are some alternatives in the settings.
The OnePlus 6T has the hardware chops to tear through any mobile game in the world, and there’s a custom Gaming Mode to make your experience just a bit better. While in Gaming Mode, the phone won’t show regular notifications on top of what you’re doing. You can also set the phone to answer calls via speaker mode, disable automatic brightness, and limit other apps’ use of the network interface. That last feature is handy if you’re playing an online game on a weak connection. Gaming Mode activates automatically when it recognizes a game, but you can also add additional games to the list manually.
While the OnePlus 6 had a respectable battery life, the 6T is even better. The new variant has a huge 3700mAh battery. The battery easily lasts a day after mixed usage.
We ran our standard battery test, playing a 90-minute video in full HD and at maximum brightness, and found the phone only lost 10% of its charge. The OnePlus 6 lost 15% of its battery in the same test.
