Moreover, the panel also houses an in-display fingerprint sensor to unlock the device with a tap on the display.

For photography, the handset features a dual 16MP + 20MP sensors on the rear with LED flash and a single 20MP shooter up front for selfies and video calling. On the battery front, it houses a 3,700mAh battery cell which is the most in a OnePlus device until now. As revealed prior to the launch, there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack on the device, forcing users to use USB Type-C port for both charging and audio. The OnePlus 6T runs the latest Android 9 Pie-based OxygenOS out of the box. Other features include a bottom firing loudspeaker fine-tuned by Dirac HD Sound and Dirac Power Sound and a new Gaming Mode.
