The newly launched OnePlus 6T comes with two RAM variants - 6GB and 8GB. According to OnePlus, a designated team called "Team FSE" (Fast, Smooth, Efficient) has been established for the single objective of improving Android performance and the overall user experience. On the front, the difference on the OnePlus 6T is the waterdrop notch, under display fingerprint sensor and the much slimmer chin.

The optical in-display fingerprint sensor uses light to illuminate the finger through the screen and authenticate the user as the owner of the phone.

OnePlus has also improved the camera of the 6.41-inch device with two new features Nightscape, which captures low-light urban environments with improved clarity, less noise, more accurate color reproduction and better dynamic range, and Studio Lighting, a feature that has been fine-tuned to recognize faces and adjust the lighting accordingly to simulate professional lighting.

It's a little over 10 percent larger in capacity than the 3,300mAh battery on the OnePlus 6, which will ensure that the phone can keep up with the increased energy requirements of the larger screen and in-display fingerprint sensor.

This mode will also come to the OnePlus 6 via an OTA later this week. There's no wireless charging despite the device coming with a glass back though. "OnePlus has a sterling reputation, and we've researched the device and vetted it thoroughly", Freier said.

T-Mobile will only offer the middle variant with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a Midnight Black finish for the price of $579, same as the unlocked model. The OnePlus One was nearly £300 less than 2014 rivals, and while the 6T is twice as expensive, it retains a substantial price difference.

The dual rear camera setup on the OP6T is similar to the OP6, offering 16MP and 20MP cameras. The base variant of the OnePlus 6T will retail for Rs. 37,999. This OnePlus 6T event will confirm the phone's India price, as well as the sale details and offers through Amazon India, its exclusive partner. The OnePlus 6T takes the second spot which was previously held by Xiaomi black shark just behind the ASUS ROG Phone topping the charts.

OnePlus is affiliated with OPPO, a Chinese smartphone-maker and a major force in mid-end phones, which are sold globally and cost about $300. The event will also be watched at the official OnePlus 6T launch page, https://www.oneplus.in/6t/launch. The plan will entitle them to 3GB 4G data per day with unlimited voice calls, SMS and access to Jio's premium applications.

Other changes found in the Open Beta 6 update for the OnePlus 6 include the addition of new navigation gestures, improved UI for About phone, an improved process for taking screenshots, and the November Android security update.
