There is news about OnePlus 6T launching in a couple of months, I mean really? OnePlus has recently become India’s best flagship smartphone brand and believe me, it is because of their product and it has no question mark on it. I am the happy user of OnePlus for almost 3 years now and I can assure you the devices of OnePlus is awesome. But the biggest problem of OnePlus is the model Jump, which might harm the brand in long run.
It feels like the OnePlus 6 only just launched, and we’re already beginning to hear rumors of a OnePlus 6T coming soon. If you see other flagship smartphone makers like Apple or Samsung they launch one model every year for their flagship line-up and if OnePlus if looking the be there they will have to give confidence to their customer.
OnePlus 6 launched only in May this year and according to OALEXANDER, the Assistant Head Moderator of an Indian website called PiunikiaWeb the OnePlus 6T will go on sale in the ‘coming months’. If this statement is to be believed, then it’s possible the OnePlus 6T will be launched in November, in the same way as the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus5T from previous years.
To add fuel to the fire, a YouTube channel by the name Waqar Khan showcased a concept design of the OnePlus 6T. According to the concept, the OnePlus 6T’s design will be inspired by the OPPO R17.
This is partly because OnePlus and OPPO R-series devices have known to share designs in the past. For all we know, this concept design could actually realise into the actual design of the upcoming OnePlus smartphone with the sole difference being two rear cameras instead of OPPO’s three.
According to Khan’s concept design, the back of the phone is curved. The position of the power button and the alert slider remains the same as that on the OnePlus 6. The volume rocker and the SIM card tray are found on the opposite side.
The display now sports rounded corners and a much tinier triangular notch on the top. The fingerprint sensor is now under the display, à la Vivo X21. The phone has been showcased in black, red, and white colours.
Please note that OnePlus hasn’t officially released a statement that it is preparing to launch a new smartphone in November or that it will be called the OnePlus 6T. All these rumors must be consumed with a grain of salt.
