The Open Beta 6 update also adds Studio Lighting, which produces professional lighting techniques for selfies similar to Apple's Portrait Lighting feature.

"I don't know if it is a good time for anybody else", Carl Pei, the 29-year-old founder of OnePlus, said of the prospect of entering the US carrier-bundled phone market during an interview with Reuters at an event in Hong Kong last week. The in-display fingerprint sensor is claimed to unlock the smartphone in 0.34 seconds, and works with the OnePlus screen protector - the company doesn't guarantee it will work a third-party protector.

Turkish officials and some USA lawmakers allege the crown prince ordered the operation in which Jamal Khashoggi killed. He did not mention de facto Saudi ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman by name at any point.

Internally, the OnePlus 6T packs the same components as the OnePlus 6 with some improvements thrown here and there.

Another welcome addition is a 3700mAh battery, which is a 23% bump over the 3300mAh on the predecessor. At the expense of the rapidly dying headphone jack, we got some minor QoL changes here and there, an on-screen fingerprint scanner and a bigger battery. The OnePlus 6 offers a promising battery life already, so it's fair to expect the 6T to last a day easily.

The latest OnePlus flagship will not come with the 3.5mm headphone jack this time. On the connectivity front, it features 4V VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, NFC, and USB Type-C port.

The camera hardware sees a combination of 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel rea cameras, featuring Optical Image Stabilization and Electronic Image Stabilization, while the front-facing camera is 16 megapixel, with Electronic Image Stabilization. It lowers the ISO and the shutter speed aided by AI for stability.

And the Chinese tech giant emphasised the new feature would be coming to the OnePlus 6 "later this week". The OnePlus 6T rear cameras can capture 4K video footage at 60 frames per second, and Super Slow Motion at 1080p and 240fps / 720p and 480fps. It runs on Android 9 Pie and will be available in midnight black and mirror black colours. While the older phone started with the base variant sporting 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, the OnePlus 6T bumps up the storage to 128GB even on the base variant, while retaining RAM at 6GB.
