OnePlus 6T review
High-end specs and an in-display fingerprint reader
Our OnePlus 6T review comes ahead of the launch of this phone on November 10th. As with previous phones from OnePlus, there is a high-spec, low price, and on this rendition a fingerprint reader that is built into the display.
The OnePlus 6T has a large 6.41” Optic AMOLED display and this fills the screen with an 86% screen-to-body ratio. The phone has a resilient glass back and the phone has average dimensions at 8.2mm thick and 185g.
Keep up to Date
Fill in the form and be the first to know when the OnePlus 6T is released.
Like some of the previous models, the OnePlus 6T comes in Midnight Black or Mirror Black, and you can think of these as matte and mirror. The phone also boasts improved water and dust resistance, although it is not recommended that you submerge the phone.
Great processing power
The OnePlus 6T has a very fast processor, namely the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 2.8GHz processor with up to 8GB RAM. The price of this phone is governed by the RAM (and internal memory/up to 256GB) and most users should opt for the cheaper models unless they want absolutely cutting-edge performance or gaming.

Phone Set Up
Screen Unlock is built into the OnePlus 6T and the system is the fastest on any smartphone. To use this feature, you need to press the unlock area and Screen Unlock lights up to register your fingerprint. There is also the option to use Face Unlock if this is your preferred method of securing your phone.

- Gaming mode
- Updated gesture controls - These allow you to perform a series of gestures without taking your finger off the screen

If you enjoy music through the phone then this will sound excellent, thanks to bottom facing speaker with Dirac HD Sound and Dirac Power Sound.
