OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei had said earlier this year that the company will consider launching the OnePlus 6T smartphone only if there something new to offer. OnePlus is a smartphone brand that belongs to China’s BBK Electronics. Even OPPO and Vivo are the brands of the same company. It was only after OPPO and Vivo had launched couple of smartphones such as OPPO R15, OPPO F7, Vivo V9, and Vivo X21 with notched display design, OnePlus also unveiled the OnePlus 6 with the same design in May. OPPO and Vivo have only launched mid-range and upper mid-tier phones in the past few years, but both the companies surprised the smartphone industry by announcing OPPO Find X and Vivo NEX with advanced specs like motorized pop-up selfie camera, in-display fingerprint scanner and over 90 percent screen-to-body ratio screen. Now that the sibling brands of OnePlus have launched phones with innovative features, it seems that the OnePlus may launch the OnePlus 6T phones this year with aforementioned features. Concept renders of the OnePlus 6T that have surfaced in the recent past show that it will be arriving with features like notch-less display, popup front camera and more.
OnePlus 6T concept renders show that its front and rear sides feature glass panels with an aluminum frame in between. The handset is shown in colors like white, black, red and blue. It features a 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED display that does not feature a notch. The screen is shielded by the newly announced Gorilla Glass 6 protection. The handset is loaded with OxygenOS 5.1 flavored Android 8.1 Oreo.
Like the OnePlus 6, the 6T concept model is powered by Snapdragon 845. The RAM variants of the 6T are 6 GB and 8 GB. The storage versions of the concept model include 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB. The back panel of the phone features a tripe camera setup and at the front is the pop-up dual selfie camera setup like the Vivo NEX smartphone.
The concept renders of the phone states that it will carry support for 3D facial recognition. An in-display fingerprint scanner is also present on the OnePlus 6T concept model. It is packed with Dash Charge enabled 3,840mAh battery. Just as the OnePlus 5T was unveiled in the last quarter of 2017, the OnePlus 6T smartphone is expected to go official in Q4 2018.
