The OnePlus 6T may be announced on October 17

The OnePlus 6T may be announced on October 17
Following multiple rumors which claimed that the OnePlus 6T would ship with an in-display fingerprint scanner, earlier today OnePlus officially confirmed this feature and revealed that it would be called Screen Unlock.

In order to provide some extra info about the feature, OnePlus also explained how Screen Unlock would affect the OnePlus 6T’s design and the daily lives of users. Moreover, the brand provided a screenshot of the smartphone’s lock screen that clearly depicted the feature towards the bottom. Interestingly, though, the screenshot also includes a very specific date of Wednesday, October 17.

Now, usually, this would be overlooked. After all, the image is just a random screenshot, right? But actually, when the date is looked into, it coincides perfectly with OnePlus’ previous release schedule. With the OnePlus 3 series, the original device arrived on June 14, while the 3T went official on November 15. Likewise, the OnePlus 5 was announced on June 20, and the 5T followed on November 21. So naturally, if OnePlus continues this trend, the OnePlus 6T should arrive on October 17, as suggested by the screenshot – the original model was unveiled just over five months earlier on May 16.

OnePlus is still yet to confirm this date officially but, with the company already revealing certain details about the smartphone, it shouldn’t be too long before an event is announced.

Price it between $350-$450 and it will be the most selling device.

Trust me or not, but 6T will be one of the biggest upgrade over it's predecessor and will carry a highest price tag ever due to carrying new tech...

This will defo be a huge upgrade. OP6 buyers must be crying out of buyers remorse now . Oneplus 6 was nothing big over the 5T except the chipset which isnt a big deal in day to day tasks. This however is massive.. OP6 buyers flaring up everywhere. Lol

Basically it's coming with Super VOOC (Super Dash or Super Warp), In-display fingerprint scanner and waterdrop display and yes triple rear cameras (ToF)*.

I think it will be just called WARP charge. It's already a different naming scheme from DASH charge. If DASH was continued, they would have named it Super DASH Charge

All good, but I hope they add something more instantly tangible, like stereo speakers, IP Rating, QHD AMOLED etc. Now , even Sony has jumped ship to QHD AMOLED tech.

80% charge (as displayed in the pic) in half an hour, would be my guess.

You really don't know how funny it is to see the consistent redundancy in your comments. It's pretty entertaining, to be honest.

Optical or ultrasonic?

11. AbhiD

Most probably optical since both Oppo and Vivo are using Optical ones. Can't complain for a $500 phone. Samsung will use the ultrasonic one in a $1000 device.

My guess is optical too. I do wonder how fast it will be compared to ultrasonic. Whatever they use, I'm guessing it'll be quick since OnePlus focuses on speed more than other companies.

The last really great device from OnePlus was 5T - clean classic design, metal unibody, round fingerprint reader on the back, great screen without curves and notch! 6 have that notch and now the upcoming device will have a underglass FPR and notch. Yuck. No way a true poweruser will buy that stupid combination! C'mon OnePlus. Wake up. Oxygen OS is the best, but the rest is far from the best.
