Together, we will celebrate the announcement of the OnePlus 6T by hosting the biggest ever Community event in its history.” It is also worth noting that OnePlus will also be live-streaming the launch event on its website. Meanwhile, a ‘Notify me’ page for pre-registration of OnePlus 6T is already live on Amazon.in, the exclusive online sales partner for OnePlus.
Coming to the global launch OnePlus 6T, the company on its Twitter account posted a teaser alongside the caption “The #OnePlus6T is coming. Unlock The Speed on October 30.” The video mentions that the smartphone will also launch in New York City on October 30 as well – at 11am EDT – which is the same time as 8:30pm IST, implying the event will occur simultaneously.
As per previous reports, OnePlus 6T is tipped to feature a 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED full-HD+ display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, coupled with 6GB and 8GB RAM options and up to 256GB of onboard storage.

Moreover, the OnePlus 6T is expected to run Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box.
As for what the company has confirmed, the OnePlus 6T will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor that it calls Screen Unlock, apart from revealing it will forego the 3.5mm headphone jack for a USB Type-C port. The company also confirmed it won’t support wireless charging, or offer an IP rating despite being water resistant to some extent.
