OnePlus 6T goes on sale November 6th with 3700mAh battery
The OnePlus 6T is on the horizon, and it’s really no secret that it’s set to go on sale soon. With an Amazon pre-order deal coming out which confirmed it would be available for purchase from Amazon India November 2nd, it only stands to reason that an international release is in the cards sometime around then as well. OnePlus has confirmed to The Verge that the OnePlus 6T will go on sale internationally from November 6th, while also confirming to AndroidCentral that it will feature a 3,700mAh battery.
OnePlus including a larger battery won’t really come as a surprise to many who have been keeping up to date with the company’s latest flagship. When they announced that the headphone jack was removed, Carl Pei cited that part of the reason for its removal was its allowance for a “substantial” increase in battery life. A 3,700mAh battery marks a 10% increase over the OnePlus 6 released earlier this year. That’s a pretty big battery by all accounts, and with the efficiency of the included Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip, users should expect nothing short of exceptional battery life from the OnePlus 6T.
The OnePlus 6T is expected to resemble the OnePlus 6 in nearly every way, with similar specifications across the board between the two. One of its other key features over its predecessor is that it will have an in-display fingerprint sensor, making the company one of the few to do so in their flagship device. Whether an increased battery size and in-display fingerprint sensor are enough to make up for the removal of the headphone jack is yet to be seen, as it will be hard to break the record sales figures (in the context of the company) that the OnePlus 6 achieved within its first few weeks after launch. They even beat out Samsung in India. We’ll have to wait and see how the OnePlus 6T fares, as a 10% battery size improvement is certainly nothing to scoff at.
