Following the pattern established by the OnePlus 3T, the company has once more released an incremental upgrade for the OnePlus 6, which was introduced in May of this year. The new OnePlus 6T provides some small advancements over its predecessor, much like all past T-series releases from the business, and we’re here to talk about just that.
Everything New in the OnePlus 6T
Bigger Screen, Smaller Notch
The OnePlus 6T’s display will catch your eye right away. The gadget features a larger 6.41-inch display with a more modest waterdrop-shaped notch that houses the front-facing camera and sensors. However, the display resolution is still 1080p with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, so that doesn’t change.
In-Display Fingerprint Scanner
An further noteworthy innovation of the OnePlus 6T is the inclusion of an in-display fingerprint scanner. By utilising a 4th-generation in-display fingerprint scanner from Synaptics, OnePlus has created the fastest in-display fingerprint scanner I’ve ever used.
The battery capacity of the OnePlus 6T has also improved from that of its predecessor, and it now contains a good 3,700mAh battery. Given that the OnePlus 6 already had excellent battery life, the OnePlus 6T’s larger battery pack should result in even greater battery life.
The OnePlus 6T also comes with a special function that OnePlus says would speed up app launches by as much as 20%. Instead of starting commonly used programmes from the ROM, the Smart Boost function will launch them from the system RAM. Only a few games will be compatible with the functionality at first, but the business has vowed to promptly upgrade the feature in the future to enable more apps.
The new OnePlus 6T has a specific Night Mode option to take better pictures in low light, just like every other recently released handset. Thus, the new Nightscape feature will provide superior low-light images with respectable levels of detail, excellent colour reproduction, and little to no noise.
That concludes everything new on the OnePlus 6T in comparison to the OnePlus 6 as a whole. Other than these modifications, both devices are essentially the same and will work similarly. It’s possible that the newer gadget will seem a little bit snappier, but not by as much as you might anticipate from a complete refresh.
