OnePlus 6T bares all in Midnight Black and Mirror Black 'official marketing pics'
After offering our first real look at the rear of the OnePlus 6T (well, a portion of it, anyway) a couple of weeks ago, shattering all triple camera expectations, WinFuture’s Roland Quandt is back with a vengeance today to reveal full and purportedly official “marketing pics” of the unreleased phone in two colors.

Technically, one color, two (slightly) different variants, which just so happen to coincide with the two main OnePlus 6 options. We’re talking “Midnight Black” and “Mirror Black” flavors, hiding snazzy glass covers under a refined new “frosted” surface.

Speaking of things hiding new stuff, it’s no longer a secret that the OnePlus 6T supports in-screen fingerprint recognition technology, freeing up a little bit of space at the back and helping the next-gen “flagship killer” to stand out from most mainstream flagships in the Western Hemisphere.

A so-called “waterdrop” notch is another intriguing design element borrowed from recent Vivo and Oppo releases to give the likes of the Pixel 3 XL and LG V40 ThinQ a run for their money stateside.

The teeny-tiny and, according to many, preferable screen cutout can only accommodate a selfie camera, which means the earpiece is relocated in a barely noticeable “recess” above the front-facing shooter.
 
This is definitely a love-or-hate aesthetic vision, but one thing we know most of you will loathe is the death of the time-honored headphone jack. On the bright side, a significantly larger 3,700 mAh battery is expected to reside under the hood of a slightly larger 6.4-inch OnePlus 6T (the OP6 has a 6.28-inch display and 3,300 mAh cell).

Pretty much everything else is rumored to stay the same, from a Snapdragon 845 processor to a maximum of 8GB RAM, with Android 9.0 Pie however likely to run the software show out the box. Who’s looking forward to October 17?

Essential phone had almost 2x deeper notch compared to OP6T and a huge chin. This one looks nothing like that.

I will give OP6T a try for the first time ever ( i skip ipxs and sammy ) i will try this new phone on the block :) is unique features is never been in the u.s market, that got me excited ( on screen finger scanner waterdrop notch ) that is closest to the full screen features. Just hope OP will have this op6T priced at less than $650 for 128gb and dual sim support ( for u.s variant ) Im all IN!!!

If you use T-Mobile or AT&T, this phone will work. If you're with Verizon or Sprint, it will most likely not work on those networks.

Hopefully only the 3rd ToF camera(useless gimmick for now) has been ditched and it gets variable aperture from R17 Pro. Also hope that they have included something extra because Oppo R17 Pro has all this plus a 3rd camera. Otherwise it would be just a waste of space in the phone.

What are you seeing? The OnePlus 6T only has two sensors on the rear.

Read it again! I said i hope that the 3rd useless camera from R17 Pro has been ditched, not any other one. And i hope that it retains the rest of 2 sensors from R17 Pro rather than go with it's own choices.

Ughh I wish this worked on Verizon. This will easily be the best phone for the money on the market.

They put a front firing speaker(s) on it yet? Probably still mono bottom firing that gets palmed in landscape. Display is probably still a fuzzy pentile array.

Phone of the year? Possibly maybe. No nonsense humongous notch. Lets hope inscreen FPS works well too, improved camera amd the rest is already im One+ pocket.

This seems quite similar to the Vivo Nex, though not as expensive. The lack of a headphone jack kills it for me though.

I wish the volume rocket was on the same side as the power button. I'm still using my OnePlus 3 right now and I always take accidental screen shots.

Vivo, Oppo and OnePlus are all owned by the same company. OnePlus usually uses ideas from Oppo but now it looks like they are borrowing from Vivo too.

The mirror black will look amazing.....when clean. It's going to be a fingerprint/grease magnet. And I wish OP would make a smaller variant of the OnePlus with a 5.5" 18:9 screen. Would be like the smaller Pixel.
