The OnePlus 6T is already in development and while it may not launch until November, pictures of its retail box have surfaced. The photos also confirm some of the specs of the phone.

A New Notch

The OnePlus 6T will come with a notch like the OnePlus 6 but it won’t be a wide one. Instead, it will be the new water-drop style notch that is fast becoming the rave. Housed with the notch is a front-facing camera. We won’t be surprised if it is the same one in the One Plus 6. Above the notch is a slit for the earpiece.

In-Display Fingerprint Scanner

When OnePlus made the switch to an 18:9 display, it was forced to move the fingerprint scanner to the back of the device. If the position of the fingerprint scanner is one of the reasons why you don’t like the OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 6, then you may want to consider the OnePlus 6T.

Based on what’s on the retail box, it appears the fingerprint scanner is moving back to the front. However, it won’t be in the same position as that of the OnePlus 5. Instead, it will be under the display. Yes, an in-display fingerprint scanner. We do hope the scanner on the OP6T is fast seeing as OnePlus is going with the speed marketing.

The retail box is a bit different. It has a sort of marble-like appearance and not plain white like that of previous OnePlus’ devices. There is a large 6 written in front and a OnePlus logo at the top. On the left side is the name of the phone (OnePlus 6T) and on the right is an inscription that reads “Unlock The Speed”.

The OnePlus 6 will come with a Snapdragon 845 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The display will be AMOLED and should still be over 6-inches in size. However, we expect it to be a bit more expensive than the OnePlus 6.
