Today, OnePlus is announcing its newest flagship smartphone and lifting the review embargo. The OnePlus 6T is a mid-cycle update to the OnePlus 6, so while the specs haven’t moved much, you do get plenty of upgrades. There’s a new design with a teardrop camera notch on the front, a bigger display, a new baseline of 128GB of storage, and a bigger 3700mAh battery. Most interestingly, there’s now an in-display optical fingerprint reader, which makes the 6T the first US-bound smartphone with this new fingerprint tech.
Speaking of US sales, OnePlus is also making progress on the carrier front. This is the first OnePlus device that will land in brick-and-mortar stores in the US, thanks to a deal with T-Mobile. The phone is also certified for use on Verizon, so while you won’t find one in a Verizon store, you can bring a 6T in and Verizon will activate it.
