Now, let us look into the full specifications of this OnePlus 6T
Simplicity is the way with
the OnePlus 6T. Like the OnePlus 6 before it, the smartphone comes crafted
entirely from glass, albeit for its painted aluminium edges.
The Midnight Black model offers a slightly
lower-key matte finish compared to the fingerprint-amassing Mirror Black
version. The design, while largely unchanged, remains a bomb; it feels solid, premium and pleasantly smooth, while the
6T’s subtly curved edges mean it sits snugly in the hand; despite being
slightly thicker and weightier than the OnePlus 6.
Apart from the display and the larger battery in the OnePlus 6T, the
specs are roughly the same as they were in the OnePlus 6 from earlier
this year. Here’s a full breakdown:
It might seem odd to release a new phone with specs that are almost
the same as its predecessor, but it’s definitely less of an issue when
said predecessor is already insanely fast.
OnePlus has consistently released some of the fastest and most
powerful smartphones year in and year out. 2018 has been no different,
with the smoking fast OnePlus 6 having been one of the most powerful
phones in the world earlier this year. Thanks to Android 9.0 Pie and
hundreds of new software optimizations in the latest version of OnePlus’
OxygenOS (version 9.0.3), the OnePlus 6T is even faster and more
powerful than its predecessor despite having nearly identical specs. The
base model of the phone comes with 6GB of RAM And 128GB of storage,
while the upgraded model I reviewed has 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or
256GB of storage.
The OnePlus 6T managed solid GeekBench 4 scores in my tests, with a
single core average of 2440 and a multi-core average of 9087. That’s
good enough to place it among the top Android phones in the world. In
fact, it’s the highest multi-core score we’ve ever seen among globally
available Android phones. Of course, it obviously still can’t touch the
A12 Bionic-powered iPhone XS, which racks up a single-core score of 4795
and a multi-core score of 11221.
Benchmark tests performed using AnTuTu told more of the same story.
The OnePlus 6T cooked up an average score of 295926 in my tests, which
once again makes it the most powerful globally available Android phone
out there right now. The iPhone XS still bests it by a wide margin,
however, having managed a score of 348581 despite having only half as
much RAM as the OnePlus 6T.
Apart from top-notch specs, it also helps that OnePlus has made about
500 different optimizations to the software on the OnePlus 6T, so it’s
faster and smoother than ever. Of note, each and every one of those
optimizations is coming to the OnePlus 6 in future software updates.
When is it coming?
There have yet to be any concrete rumors
around when the OnePlus 6T will be arriving. However, based on the
timing of the OnePlus 5T and when the OnePlus 6 launched, we are
expecting to see a launch in November.
