OnePlus 6T to be Amazon exclusive, leaked image tips at dual rear cameras and no rear fingerprint sensor
As the OnePlus 6T launch draws nearer, more information about the smartphone is leaking out. The name of the handset is now finally officially confirmed and the latest barrage of leaks reveal the device’s rear panel, tipping at the absence of a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and at the presence of an in-display fingerprint sensor. The OnePlus 6T is now confirmed to be an Amazon exclusive in India and the recently announced wired Type-C Bullets headphones will also be launched soon, as per Amazon’s teaser page. All the announcements are official, except for the leaked images of the device’s rear panel, which suggest that OnePlus is most likely to stick with a dual rear camera setup instead of the rumoured triple cameras.
The leaked image reveals that the OnePlus 6T could come with a Mirror Black finish rear panel. Posted by Winfuture.de, the image suggests that the device could ship a vertically stacked dual-rear camera setup on the rear and there might not be a rear mounted fingerprint sensor. However, previous reports and a new Amazon teaser suggest that the smartphone will sport an in-display fingerprint sensor, so this is not much of a surprise. The same has been teased by Amitabh Bachan in the first ad of the smartphone. He also holds the device in his hands, partially revealing its rear panel but hiding the spot where the fingerprint sensor used to be in its predecessors. Amazon’s teaser image for the device shows a wavy pattern in the background, which is again speculated to be a subtle hint at the presence of an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Coming to the Type-C Bullets headphones, the company recently announced that the beloved 3.5mm headphone jack is being killed off in the OnePlus 6T. The company’s co-founder Carl Pei confirmed the news and said that the new headphones featuring a USB Type-C connector will be priced at Rs 1,490 in India and will be available across online and offline channels.
Coming to the specs of the OnePlus 6T, it is rumoured to feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with 2340x1080p resolution and a 91.5% screen to body ratio. It might feature a waterdrop notch display on top and is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, with the Adreno 630 GPU. As per the new leaks, it might not ship with a triple camera setup and could feature a 25MP front camera. It’s expected to be launched in a 6GB/8GB RAM version with options to select from 64GB/128GB/256GB of internal storage. The company recently started seeding the third Android Pie based Open Beta for the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T is expected to launch running on its stable version with OxygenOS layered on top. The smartphone is expected to be priced at $550 (Rs 38,000 approx).
