Lau revealed a number of new points about the phone. Despite the huge demand from users, OnePlus has taken a "tough" decision to remove headphone jack. He talked a bit about price too, specifically as it relates to that new in-display fingerprint reader that carries a "definite cost", meaning you should all prepare for a higher price than the OnePlus 6.
"After you experience the Screen Unlock you'll fall in love with it", he said.
The United Kingdom has only the 8/128 GB variants that go for £519, while the Netherlands is the only European place where you can buy all the phones you want, including the Silk White variant.
Another thing that you'll notice the absence of a fingerprint sensor at the back of the phone.
While the Dash Charge offers up to 20W power output, Huawei is rumored to introduce the 15W wireless fast charging with the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro smartphones. OnePlus earlier confirmed that the new smartphone will have this feature.More news: Return of Kirk? Chance of tropical storm reforming up to 70%
The OnePlus 6T does contain a fingerprint scanner but it will be embedded within the display itself.
"We're working hard on this", the exec said. When we get to the day that the wireless charging can get up to speed without the implication of heat that we expect, then I believe we can integrate the technology. October 17 is the date when OnePlus is expected to officially unveil the 6T.
OnePlus has advertised OnePlus 6 as water-resistant but never talked about any kind of IP certification. That's not necessarily a bad move, considering that the cost would be passed on to the buyer.
For the past couple of weeks, OnePlus has released a few teasers and TV ads revealing the upcoming flagship name-OnePlus 6T-along with features like water drop display design and in-screen fingerprint sensors. That's because the parts that OnePlus won't change concern the hardware. But across the web, and in China, there are websites that have no interest in hiding the OnePlus 6T.
However, if OnePlus is able to bundle some of these accessories with the upcoming flagship, it will make the smartphone deal a whole lot sweeter for a lot of customers.
