Ahead of the smartphone's launch next month, it has been listed online on Giztop, complete with pricing and other key details. The extra space created by 3.5mm jack's removal could also come in handy as the handset is coming with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The processor and graphics chips are set to the stay the same as its predecessor, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 and Adreno 630. The listing also suggests Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection over the waterdrop display. "We're adding an adapter to the box, allowing you to use your 3.5mm headphones normally", says Pei. Like all previous OnePlus smartphones, the 6T will not include a microSD card slot for further expansion. Since the OnePlus 6T will be powered by the exact same chipset as the OnePlus 6, we expect it to be identical to its predecessor in the connectivity department.

Shutterbugs will be happy to see that 6T rocks triple rear cameras, including a 20-megapixel sensor, a 12-megapixel sensor and a Time-of-Flight sensor that's made for capturing 3D images. On the front, the upcoming OnePlus flagship will have a 25MP lens of f/1.4 aperture.

He's partly not anxious because he said that removing the headphone jack has allowed them to include a bigger battery that will be "substantial enough for users to realize". When pressed on why said jack not included, Pei gave similar answers to those given by Apple, Razer, and others.

In turn, they've forced Seattle to turn the ball over a combined 25 times so far and forced 15 turnovers in game two alone. When asked how it compared to the other two WNBA titles she's won, she said there's "no comparison honestly".

Google's latest Android 9.0 Pie has a mention, prompting thoughts that the OnePlus 6T might ship with the update pre-installed rather than the user having to manually download it.

According to the Giztop listing, OnePlus 6T will be priced at $569 (Rs.41,400 approx.). Storage options listed for OnePlus 6T include 6GB/8GB RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB of internal memory. Are you happy with what you see with the rumoured specifications of the OnePlus 6T or would you like to see something else? This implies that OnePlus 6T could be launched globally on October 16.
