OnePlus 6T battery capacity seemingly revealed, handily beating OnePlus 6
If a freshly leaked image is to be trusted, the “typical capacity” of the new battery stands at 3,700 mAh, which is a very respectable number, but not quite “flagship-killing.” Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9, for instance, packs a gargantuan 4,000 mAh cell, while the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is expected to improve on the 4,000 mAh battery size of the Mate 10 Pro and P20 Pro.
Still, 3,700 mAh would represent a decent enhancement over the 3,300 mAh battery of the OnePlus 6. Of course, the 6T is also tipped to sport a larger screen than its predecessor, but only slightly so, at 6.4 inches (compared to 6.28).
Since the OnePlus 6 obtained above-average scores in our proprietary battery life test, we can reasonably expect its headphone jack-ditching sequel to take things to the next level.
As far as today’s actual leak is concerned, it’s important to point out this doesn’t hail from a verified source. Therefore, it could well be a hoax, but why would anyone go through this much trouble to fabricate a photo of a battery?
The writing on it obviously doesn’t mention the OnePlus 6T by name, but OnePlus is identified as the non-removable battery’s designer. The BLP685 model number also fits with the typical labeling scheme of the company’s power packs, so there’s little doubt in our mind as to the veracity of this leak.
