With a scheduled launch set for October 30, the OnePlus 6T has been confirmed to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner and will run on Google’s latest Android 9 Pie interface. In the latest piece of news, the upcoming flagship from OnePlus is now expected to equip a dedicated night mode in its camera interface, similar to the one of the Pixel 3.
The OnePlus 6T with its new features is also set to welcome a dedicated Night Mode inside the camera app, which is expected to help improve the image quality during low light photography. According to True Tech, who came up with the news firsthand, the information was revealed by a OnePlus representative, meaning it’s as good as true.
Though it’s unknown how the Night Mode will work, we can expect the feature to be similar to Google’s Night Sight mode on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. When enabled Night mode will click pictures with good “dark-to-light contrast, ample clarity, sharpness and negligible noise”, which will be done with the help of a combination of software and hardware optimisations.
Besides the new night mode, another leak suggests the Indian pricing of the device which indicates that the OnePlus 6T will start at Rs 37,999 in India for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. Furthermore, the 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB version will be available for asking prices of Rs 40,999 and Rs 44,999 respectively.
The leak also implies that OnePlus will no longer feature a base 64GB version of the OnePlus 6T with the 128GB storage being the base variant of the phone. With this listing, the OnePlus 6T will mark another bump in prices for flagship killer lineup which slowly reaches for the status of Samsung’s and Google’s of the world. The Rs 37,999 base price means yet another Rs 3,000 price bump from this year’s OnePlus 6, which somehow the company doesn’t want to stop at.
Oneplus 6T is expected to feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a water-drop notch display. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with up to 8GB RAM. It will run the latest Android 9.0 (Pie) out of the box and will be fuelled by a 3,700 mAh battery with Dash Charging. OnePlus will bundle the phone with the newly-announced Type-C Bullets earphones.
