New Delhi: Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus launched its much-anticipated OnePlus 6T in India, a day after its global debut in New York
The OnePlus 6T with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage will come starting price of Rs 37,999. The 8GM RAM + 128GB storage will be available at Rs 41,999 and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant will come at Rs 45,999.
The company also introduced its new Type-C Bullets earphones in matte black colour variant for Rs 1,490.
OnePlus has done away with the rear mounted fingerprint scanner for an "in-display" scanner on the OnePlus 6T. Featuring "screen unlock" -- the industry's fastest in-display fingerprint technology, the smartphone provides users with a fast, natural and intuitive way to unlock their devices, thus, benefiting from a large display with minimal bezels, according to the company.
The much-talked about waterdrop notch lends OnePlus 6T an immersive 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.
Smart Boost is a new feature in the OnePlus 6T which improves app cold start speeds by up to 20 per cent by storing data from frequently used apps in the phone's RAM.
The smartphone has a bigger 3,700 mAh battery which provides a 20 per cent increased battery life compared to the previuous-gen OnePlus 6.
The OnePlus 6T's camera includes software optimisations and added features such as the "Nightscape" feature which assists in capturing low-light urban environments with improved clarity, less noise, accurate colour reproduction and better dynamic range.
The camera hardware boasts of a combination of 16MP f/1.7 and 20MP f/1.7 rear-facing cameras with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) features, while the front-facing camera is a 16MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and EIS.
