OnePlus 6T launch date has changed because, you know, Apple

OnePlus has been teasing the 6T for weeks, and we were supposed to learn all the details on October 30th.

That's understandable, given that Apple is Apple and OnePlus still considers itself a scrappy startup. According to leaks on China's Weibo, the 6T will have an optical sensor that means a 2D scan of fingerprints. It is likely that AI will play a key role in capturing detailed images in dim-light conditions on the OnePlus 6T.

Pete Lau, OnePlus CEO, has taken to Chinese Social media site Weibo to advise on the update for the two older OnePlus handsets in response to a question from a OnePlus fan.

The next OnePlus launch date has officially been moved to October 29, a day earlier than the company originally announced, proving it's hard to compete with Apple. He also contacted those who booked tickets and flights to get to the event.

Under existing rules players must be 19, or one year removed from high school, before entering the NBA Draft . Of the 35, only five scored more than 10 points in their first game.

This is a huge break for OnePlus in the US, but that doesn't stop the company from selling unlocked, carrier-free phones in the country. "To those affected, we know sorry isn't good enough", said OnePlus, which charges its most diehard fans admission for launch events tickets. The device will run on Snapdragon 845, could be powered by a 3,700 mAh battery and will ditch the 3.5mm audio jack. The reason behind this change is the recent announcement of an Apple hardware event happening on the same date.

Rumours have been rife for months that Apple is planning to refresh its iPad, MacBook Air and Apple Pencil lineup. In the latest piece of news, the upcoming flagship from OnePlus is now expected to equip a dedicated night mode in its camera interface, similar to the one of the Pixel 3. This Night Mode will supposedly improve the low light camera performance further.

This popular laptop hasn't had a major upgrade in years and it could finally be time to see some new features arriving on the portable powerhouse.
