OnePlus 6T to sport in-display fingerprint scanner, dumps jack

The OnePlus 6T, the company’s flagship, is expected to be the maker’s most intersting smartphone yet.

German retailer Otto, in a now-deleted listing, accidentally outed everything there is to know about the OnePlus 6T, including its full specs and how much it will cost.

Specifications        

The incoming flagship will be the company’s first to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. Much to the dismay of many, we also know that the 6T will be the first OnePlus handset to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack in favour of audio over USB-C.

The OnePlus 6T will sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen, 2.8GHz Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB or 8GB RAM, a dual-lens camera system and a choice of 128GB and 256GB storage. 

Release Date

The much awaited smartphone was scheduled to be launched on October 30, but preponed it to October 29. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed the change of date and said the decision was made to avoid the launch clashing with Apple’s iPad and MacBook event. He was quoted saying “we would be overshadowed by Apple.”

Pricing

The firm confirmed the date of sale to be November 6, however, buyers will be able to pick up the handset pop-up shops at OnePlus pop-ups from 31st October.

OnePlus has yet to confirm how much the 6T will cost. However,  Chinese e-commerce site GizTop has listing the next-gen OnePlus flagship with a $569 (around Rs. 54800) price-tag.
