However, the company also announced that NightScape is also coming to this phone in a future software upgrade. Although OnePlus's previous smartphones have been available in the country unlocked, the launch of the OnePlus 6T marks the first occasion on which the OEM offered one of its smartphone models in the collaboration with one of the country's carriers, which should greatly contribute to the brand's recognition. The company's partnership with T-Mobile will likely only help OnePlus compete with the bigger smartphone companies.

The OnePlus 6T goes on sale on November 6, in two versions of black - matte or glossy.

Following the footsteps of Apple, OnePlus too has eliminated the 3.5mm headphone jack, which may put off enthusiasts. But for folks in the United States who have been eagerly anticipating OnePlus handsets finally launching in their country, the wait is finally over. This the first time OnePlus has ditched the fingerprint sensor on a smartphone. There's now a slimmed-down teardrop notch at the top of the display that houses the handsets' 16MP front-facing camera, giving the handset an 86 per cent screen-to-body ratio. As far as the design of the phone is concerned, there are no two thoughts that the OnePlus 6T looks nearly like the OnePlus 6, especially from the back side. A well-endowed 3700-mAh battery juices up the phone, and the included charger can push 20 W to it in a bid to make charging times short.

OnePlus 6T will run the latest Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. The device has launched with three memory configurations: 6GB RAM + 128GB internal memory, 8GB RAM + 128GB internal memory, and 8GB RAM + 256GB internal memory. As of November 1st, 2018, around 5600 T-Mobile locations across the United States will carry the OnePlus 6T. That's all thanks to a new feature called Smart Boost - long story short, the phone is created to figure out what apps and games you use the most and will load some assets directly into RAM in anticipation of you actually doing your thing.

The rear dual camera will be familiar to OnePlus 6 owners.

The video below demonstrates the live wallpapers and also the new in-display fingerprint sensor animations. Furthermore, OnePlus is launching a new pair of USB-C compatible Bullets headphones. A Smart boost feature has also been introduced that boosts the performance of the device by 20% for playing heavy games. Strangely, there's no mention of the famous Dash Charge, the OnePlus proprietary Fast Charging technology.

As for pricing, the OnePlus 6T starts at $549 for the 6GB/128GB variant.

While it is debatable how OnePlus 6T received a higher score than OnePlus 6 given that both sport the same OS versions, processors and RAM capacities, it sure will come as a good news for OnePlus fans.
