The major design change OnePlus brings to the 6T is on the front.
On November 1st, 2018, T-Mobile will start selling the 6T on its website and at its retail stores across the U.S, marking the first time a OnePlus device is available through a North American carrier. Meanwhile, Motorola launched a "5G" phone a few months ago, but it still needs an accessory to make 5G connectivity real, and Xiaomi last week unveiled the Mi Mix 3, a version of which will come with 5G support in the future. This is being accomplished through the Open Beta 6 update available now to OnePlus 6 owners.
The OnePlus 6T will be sold in three configrurations - 6GB+128GB priced at $550, 8GB+128GB priced at $580 and 8GB+256GB, which will cost $630.

CBI Director Alok Verma challenges ouster in SC
The feud between the CBI's top two - Alok Verma and Rakesh Asthana - escalated with each accusing the other of corruption. In extraordinary circumstances, the director can only be removed after an inquiry, which was not done in Verma's case.
"It was not high on our agenda to be first with these technologies", a OnePlus spokesperson told us.
OnePlus said that the 2D optical fingerprint scanner can be used 150 times a day for 10 years before failing and that it will unlock the phone in around 350ms. Interestingly, Nelson also vigorously scratched the in-display fingerprint sensor, but that did not affect it at all. Also, if you finance the device from T-Mobile, you will be unable to unlock the bootloader until you pay off the device. "As a comparison, the OnePlus 6 has a smaller 6.28" Full HD+ AMOLED display with a slightly shorter 19:9 aspect ratio.
Other software upgrades coming along with the 6T include performance-boosting functions such as Smart Boost and a new gesture navigation system termed "Full Screen Gesture 2.0". The sensor has been placed under the screen, which puts OnePlus 6T in league with the likes of Oppo Find X, Oppo R17, Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and Vivo NEX. Plus, the chin has been reduced on the OnePlus 6T and the top notch is tiny in comparison to other premium smartphones on the market. The OnePlus 6 offers a promising battery life already, so it's fair to expect the 6T to last a day easily.
This new tech means the handset is slightly thicker and heavier than the OnePlus 6, but otherwise, the design remains largely unchanged; the 6T comes crafted nearly entirely from glass and it will be available in Mirror Black and Midnight Black colour options. The device will have a 3,700 mAh battery and a water drop notch. The entry-level OnePlus 6T still keeps the same 6GB RAM, though. OnePlus has monkey-wrenched a sheet of Gorilla Glass 6 onto the screen, potentially making it harder to shatter than usual. However, it will have a "night mode" which will allow brighter shots in poorly lit spaces.
