OnePlus 6T: Cutting-edge technology for a budget price

The OnePlus 6T was released to the UK market on the 6th of November and it hasn’t disappointed. It is the second flagship phone they have released this year and although the OnePlus 6 was a great phone, the OnePlus 6T is consistently better in every aspect.

OnePlus are renowned for offering top specifications for budget prices and this model proves that. If this were an Apple or Samsung device, you would have to spend at least double to match the cutting-edge technology included in this device.

The OnePlus 6T’s price is set to start at £499 for the 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage in the Mirror Black colour. The same storage and colour but with 8GB of RAM will cost you £529.

Midnight Black versions of the phone have 8GB of RAM and cost £529 or £579 depending on whether you go for the 128GB or 256GB versions.

The phone features a colourful 6.41inch OLED display with a smaller chin at the bottom and a tiny teardrop-shaped notch at the top. The bottom of the phone has symmetrical speaker grilles, one of which is for show, and the USB-C port, but doesn’t have a headphone socket making the 6T the first from OnePlus to not include this.

Perhaps the biggest upgrade of all is how you unlock the OnePlus 6T, and that’s by using the fingerprint sensor that’s now embedded in the screen.

This is a new technology that we’re starting to see on more and more smartphones, including the Oppo Find X, Vivo Nex, Huawei Mate 20 Pro. It’s something Samsung is experimenting with too, and it means a fingerprint scanner can go on the front of your phone, where it’s easier to hit, without taking up space that could be used for more screen.
