OnePlus 6T has officially been launched in the Indian market carrying a price tag of Rs. 37,999 for the entry-level variant. The smartphone was first unveiled globally on Monday at an event in New York, however, at the time, no India price was revealed by the company. At an event in New Delhi’s KDJW Stadium, OnePlus officially announced the OnePlus 6T price in India, release date, and launch offers for early buyers. A mid-cycle refresh, the OnePlus 6T succeeds the OnePlus 6 that was launched in May this year. It has some new features compared to its predecessor, as well as a controversial removal — the headphone jack.
Instead, OnePlus 6T users will have to utilise the USB Type-C port or Bluetooth connectivity for audio connectivity. Differences between the OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 include the presence of an in-display fingerprint sensor, a larger display, a smaller display notch, a larger battery, Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box, improved low-light photography (though this will be making its way to the OnePlus 6 via software update), a new feature called Smart Boost for faster app-load times, as well as a base model that has twice the storage compared to the OnePlus 6’s base model. Apart from the headphone jack, another controversial removal is the LED notification light, though the company explains this away by touting the Lift-Up Display feature that will help users spot notifications.
