OnePlus 6T vs One Plus 6 What's new and different

OnePlus 6T is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with Adreno 630 GPU.

Although it would have been nice to have wireless charging on the OnePlus 6T, the lack of it on the phone certainly isn't enough to not consider buying it. Thanks to the huge battery and excellent wired charging speeds, the missing wireless capabilities will soon become an afterthought. Storage starts at 128GB this time instead of 64GB, but the $549 base model has 6GB of RAM. The OnePlus 6T with 6GB RAM & 128GB of storage is priced at Rs 37,999 while the 8GB RAM variant of the OnePlus 6T with 128GB and 256GB of storage options is priced at Rs 41,999 and Rs 45,999 respectively.

The software update schedule for the T-Mobile version is likely to be delayed compared to its unlocked cousin.

In a first of it's kind, the OnePlus 6T has a fingerprint reader built into the display. An 8GB option will take it up to $579.

According to the information released, T-Mobile versions of the phone will be carrier and bootloader locked as expected, but a mechanism for their unlocking is described.

Previous OnePlus phones were only available online or at a pop-up shop. It also supports Verizon's LTE network for the first time. Lastly, travelers will be impacted because the device only has one SIM slot rather than two. The eligible trade-in devices include the Google Pixel XL and newer, the iPhone 6 and newer, the LG G6 or V20 and newer, the Moto Z2 Force, the Nexus 6, the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Note 5 and newer, and every single previous OnePlus phone. The bootloader can not be unlocked, so you're stuck with the official software, and updates will have to go through T-Mobile before they hit the phone. As part of the offer, Jio customers who buy the OnePlus 6T will get cashback worth Rs 5,400 on the first recharge of Rs 299.

Even with that long list of deficiencies, the T-Mobile version will be the best choice for a lot of people. Some day we'll get a phone, we just don't know when that'll be. In other words, even an old OnePlus X that wasn't even $300 at retail can be traded-in right now for a $300 discount on the OnePlus 6T.
