Water and dust resistance has also been improved but don't take the OnePlus 6T for a swim as it won't like it.

There isn't much of a difference between both the OnePlus 6 and 6T smartphone as they feature similar hardware and software and also the same camera sensors.

The 6T's marquee new feature is an in-display fingerprint sensor.

T-Mobile is taking up to a $300 hit on each OnePlus 6T phone sold in a bid to excite customers in a slow year for smartphones. At launch, the 6T will be available in two colours: "Mirror Black" and 'Midnight Black'.

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer company already confirmed earlier that their upcoming flagship will be without 3.5mm headphone jack. Well, that's a question we can answer once we review the 6T. Except for the slightly bigger display and battery, and the in-display fingerprint sensor, we found nothing has been improved on the latest device.

The foray by 5-year-old Shenzhen-based OnePlus comes after USA mobile carriers AT&T and Verizon this year backed away from plans to work with China's Huawei on high-end phones in face of pressure from the U.S. government, which considers Huawei a security risk. The feature will also be brought to the OnePlus 6 as well via a software upgrade.

Thiem's hopes of home win ended by Nishikori
Kei Nishikori ended top seed Dominic Thiem's Erste Bank Open hopes and boosted his own chances of making the ATP Finals in London. The Spaniard broke Anderson twice in the second but didn't get another chance on the South African's serve in the final set.

And underneath, you'll find Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 845 processor, paired with either 6GB or 8GB RAM.

A relatively large 3,700mAh battery will power the OnePlus 6T. The OnePlus 6T came out of the box with Android 8.1 Oreo, although it got updated to the latest Android 9.0 Pie later, while the 6T comes directly with Android Pie Operating system and Oxygen OS 9.0. It's not $1,000 or even $800 - it's just $549 (about £499 or AU$774) for the 128GB model with 6GB of RAM, or $30 more for the 8GB model. This mid-cycle flagship will succeed the existing flagship from the company, the OnePlus 6. Notably, you have to place your finger in a specific position on the screen; the entire screen isn't a giant fingerprint reader, as some might assume.

Those who had pre-ordered the OnePlus 6T on Amazon with Rs 1,000 voucher will receive Rs 500 worth cashback as Amazon Pay balance along with a free pair of OnePlus Type-C Bullet earphones. It also helps that the chin in the OnePlus 6T is extremely narrow.

A few weeks ago OnePlus announced a slew of United Kingdom retail partners that would be carrying the OnePlus 6T. People arriving near the venue have been surprised and/or amused to see a road sign comparing the Poco F1, Xiaomi's own budget flagship device that many compared with the OnePlus 6 and will doubtless compare with the 6T too.

Although the 6T shares the same camera specs as the OnePlus 6, it features a brand new function for night photography called Nightscape.

OnePlus has finally pulled the curtain off its latest smartphone at an event in NY today. Although the smartphone doesn't support wireless charging technology, it does comes with the company's proprietary Fast Charge fast charging technology.
