Such a move will surely disappoint numerous OnePlus faithful, but Pei emphasised the move was made to allow for "new technologies" inside the product.
As per the reports, OnePlus 6T will be available on the site's section named - "Today's Deals", under the "All Deals" category. The phone is now open for pre-bookings on Amazon India. For example, the OnePlus 6T will be the first OnePlus phone to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, meaning you won't be reaching to the backside of the phone anymore to unlock it. So far we have seen players like Vivo and Oppo introduce these features. The confirmation was made by the company chief Pete Lau himself. Through this system, the phone's display houses an optical fingerprint module, that uses the screen as a light source. OnePlus also claimed that while the OnePlus 6T will have some water resistance, it will not be launched with an IP rating.
OnePlus 6 was launched in May this year, and sported a 6.28 inch FHD+ AMOLED display.
OnePlus says that it will celebrate the announcement of the OnePlus 6T by hosting the biggest ever Community event in the company's history. The tiny physical space will be occupied by the camera on top while companion sensors and the speaker are hidden under the screen.
Background:OnePlus had announced yesterday via its official Twitter account that a big, OnePlus 6T-related announcement is coming in 24 hours, and this is it, as expected.
The phone is powered by a 3300mAh battery with best-in-class fast-charge capability.
The company has posted promotional teasers for the same, without revealing any information. The battery backup of this OnePlus flagship is rumoured to be 3700mAh battery, and it will support the company's DashCharge technology. The primary camera module is still a dual-lens setup but the front camera is expected to come with an IR sensor.
