After Xiaomi and Huawei, the Oneplus finished the Chinese crack and today presented his creation to fight in the smartphone market for the next months. Following its tradition of launching a device a year and updating it along the way with timely news, the third outside the wall announced today the OnePlus 6T an improved version of OnePlus 6, released in May.
China's new device was already a frequent presence on rumors and leaks sites of the Android world for some time, and the final revelation did not bring much news which does not make it less impressive. The 6T features a design similar to its predecessor, with curved glass rear and screen (6.4 inches, AMOLED, FHD +) occupying almost the entire front surface; A noticeable change is in the cut-out, which is now tiny and has a "drop" shape, housing only the 16 megapixel front camera. The lower "chin" also suffered a good decrease.
The rear cameras are 20 and 16 megapixel and offer 2x optical zoom; Their software also features news with a feature to capture better photos in low light environments and a tool similar to iPhones Portrait Lighting Mode that simulates professional studio lighting techniques.
The OnePlus 6T is also the first smartphone to bring to the west a feature that has already caused a lot of stir in Apple's rumored industry: the in-screen digital reader. It works even with the device in standby mode and, according to the manufacturer, as fast and reliable as the components of the predecessor devices, which were on the rear surface. As never before, however, the 6T also brings facial recognition (which is less safe, it should be noted).
Other features include a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB or 8GB RAM, 128GB or 256GB storage, 3,700mAh battery and fast charging support. The included wall charger and cable leave the device with 50% less battery life than 30 minutes, which should make Apple embarrassed. Nevertheless, OnePlus still does not support wireless charging; The 6T also has no liquid resistance certificate and the manufacturer only classifies it as "splash resistant".
It's the concessions made to sell OnePlus 6T, a handset with high-end specs (and size), for half the price Apple charges for the iPhone XS Max. $ 550 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, jumping to $ 580 (8GB / 128GB) and $ 630 (8GB / 256GB).
It will be sold in two versions, both black (one matte and one glossy), and for the first time through a US carrier T-Mobile. Similarly, it is the first OnePlus handset to bring network support from Verizon, the largest US carrier. That is, yes, the Chinese is coming to the game being that has physical preparation?
