Weekly poll: are you getting a OnePlus 6T?

The OnePlus 6T will be sold at Rs 37,999 for 6GB+128GB, Rs 41,999 for 8GB+128GB and Rs 45,999 for the 8GB+256GB variant. This Amazon-exclusive smartphone will go on sale today (November 1) on the e-commerce platform. It also has Android Pie out of the box.

The Oneplus 6T comes with a 6.41-inch Display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and has an in-display fingerprint sensor. "Most interestingly, there's now an in-display optical fingerprint reader, which makes the 6T the first US-bound smartphone with this new fingerprint tech". The phone lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The unlocked 6T comes in both shiny and matte black glass versions. Bumping things up to 8GB will cost $579.

OnePlus has also changed something server-side that has caused the popular third-party Oxygen Updater app to come to a halt, according to Android Police.

The unlocked phone is only available from OnePlus' website, but this is clearly the "better" version of the phone. This cold prove to be an issue is some especially rural areas, but seeing as how Verizon's LTE network is nationwide at this point, it shouldn't really effect anyone. OnePlus 6T is available on the market and there are three different models for it: one with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, one with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage and another one with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage. Fun fact: I learned that directly from Des at T-Mobile. If you want the 6GB/128GB or the 8GB/256GB model, you will need to purchase it from OnePlus - and it can still be used on T-Mobile. If you haven't received a notification for the latest update you can check it manually by going to Settings Software Update.

This was a huge week for OnePlus – the young phone maker unveiled the OnePlus 6T, but more importantly it got a solid footing in the USA market with support from T-Mobile and Qualcomm. And, while that discount doesn't sound so insane at first, the list of qualifying devices quickly makes it crazy.

Talking about the Always-on Display mode, OnePlus said that the feature's effect on battery performance reduced its viability for the phone.

The goal here isn't to dissuade you from considering the OnePlus 6T for your next smartphone.
