OnePlus 6T Officially Confirmed to Miss Out Wireless Charging & IP Rating

OnePlus 6T Officially Confirmed to Miss Out Wireless Charging & IP Rating

OnePlus's Carl Pei said previously that the decision to remove the jack has to do with adding new technology as well as improving battery life. The notch certainly isn't going away, but OnePlus is definitely making it look more stylish. "[You'll] realize that it's the experience that you wanted".

The leaked photos also show some of the features that the OnePlus 6T will have. The fingerprint reader takes up essential space inside the phone, near the bottom, CNET explains. At the moment OnePlus have one of the fastest wired charging solutions available and believe that until wireless charging can get up to the same speed there is little value in it. All in all, the OnePlus 6T is an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 6 with its main USP being its on-display fingerprint sensor. In-display fingerprint sensors are rare in smartphones now, a handful of devices from Vivo such as Vivo X20 Plus UD, Vivo X21 and Vivo Nex and OPPO R17 come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

OnePlus is announcing the 6T in two weeks and is already clearing up its stock in preparation for the arrival of the new flagship. Lau was quoted as saying, "We're working hard on this". With the OnePlus 6T, the company might not apply for any IP certifications, but we still think it comes with the same kind of protection as seen on its predecessor. That's not necessarily a bad move, considering that the cost would be passed on to the buyer. He is quoted to say that the feature is "unreasonable" as "the number of users that are taking their phone to go swimming are few and far between". Excess heat generation would also have been a concern, Lau noted. That's because the parts that OnePlus won't change concern the hardware. The OnePlus 6T is expected to get a dual camera module with several software-based enhancements such as artificial intelligence-based automatic scene recognition, better low light photography, etc.

Like most of the "T" variants of its smartphones, the OnePlus 6T too will be released in the last quarter of the year.

However, if OnePlus is able to bundle some of these accessories with the upcoming flagship, it will make the smartphone deal a whole lot sweeter for a lot of customers.
