The OnePlus 6T is all set for an unveiling next week and has already been confirmed to feature an in-display “Screen Unlock” fingerprint scanner. Ahead of its official release, the device has now popped up on Amazon India which has listed the upcoming device for pre-booking from the date of the launch, all the way to October 30.
A gift card listing on Amazon India popped up earlier today revealing that the OnePlus 6T will be bundled alongside Type-C Bullet earphones for free in addition to Rs 500 worth of Amazon pay balance. Pre-orders for the smartphone will go live on the date of launch which is October 17 and will end on October 30, meaning this could be the date when the Chinese companywide start shipping its much-anticipated smartphone.
The fact that the gift card has a value of zero means, OnePlus will be pushing the bundle during the pre-booking of the phone. The bundled package also confirms the pre-rumoured fact that the OnePlus 6T doesn’t boast of a headphone jack. That’s where the Type-C OnePlus bullets earphones come into play, which is originally priced at Rs 1,999 in India.
The OnePlus 6T will be a huge step up from the OnePlus 6, majorly due to the inclusion of a new optical fingerprint scanner under the display panel, which is a first for a OnePlus device. Furthermore, the device will feature more screen real-estate due to the tiny waterdrop-like notch at the front and bezel-less display. However, the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC, the same that powers the OnePlus 6 with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
With an Android 9 Pie update already rolled out for the OnePlus 6, we can expect the OnePlus 6T to run on the latest Android interface right out of the box, with the company’s Oxygen OS on top. The rest of the phone will be quite similar to the OnePlus 6, both boasting dual cameras at the back and a single camera on the front with no support for wireless charging.
