This might be our first real look at the OnePlus 6T, and yes, that's a confirmed name now

As it turns out, the OnePlus 6T will not beat Samsung’s next flagship device to the rear-facing triple camera punch after all, sticking to a dual shooter setup that looks awfully similar to the one on the back of the OnePlus 6.
That’s if we choose to trust a partial new render revealed by WinFuture’s typically reliable Roland Quandt. The tech journalist and increasingly prolific leaker claims this is an “official” image received from a “trusted” source, and indeed, nothing about the picture immediately screams fake.
In a way, you should be happy to hear the OnePlus 6T is “settling” for two rear snappers, as a third imaging sensor would have no doubt jacked up the price. We still don’t have a credible estimate on that front, by the way, but one feature that’s likely to increase the handset’s retail cost is an in-display fingerprint sensor.
That’s pretty much etched in stone now that we can see there’s no conventional fingerprint recognition mechanism mounted on the back of the OnePlus 6T, which by the way, has its name finally confirmed today as well.
The company never explicitly mentioned the 6T moniker in its recent buzz-building stunts, but over in India, Amazon has set up a dedicated webpage for availability notifications. Both the OnePlus 6T and those all-new Type-C Bullets are listed as “coming soon”, with no other details disclosed as of the time of this writing. Stay tuned for a possible October 17 announcement.

6T is a good upgrade but no headphone jack...

Oneplus is also bowing down to Apple just like everybody else. Like it or not every other smartphone manufacturer in the industry copying Apple very shamelessly. Because of this non of those companies will have a a bright future as Apple have. #CourageToCopyOthers

I feel OnePlus can exempt themselves. The OnePlus phone is about cutting costs. That's why it never has many features found on other phones. Once the usage level drops low enough - it is a gonna. Removing the jack saves cost. A valid OnePlus move. But if you're selling phones for $100s more then it is more about greed.

No way have they removed the headphone jack to save money. The part cost about 25 cents. Even the cheapest dumb phones ( $10 phones have one). They’ve copied Apple here, no other reason which is why Apple will keep winning. Unfortunately many Chinese brands are still doing this but I hope one day Asia will set the design trends for a change. Apple needs competition for sure.

TIL that having 2 camera sensors on the back of a phone is settling. Pixel 3 will only have one sensor on the back, and will probably still be the benchmark of excellent photography (after HDR+ post processing).

Seems like the purpose of the T upgrades is to make the prices creep up and still claim the phone is "more affordable"...... I call BS on that because in canada the 6 retails for $700 for 64 GB. Like for $50 CAD more, you can get a Huawei P20 which has 128 GB and a better camera.......

Standard pricing is $99 more. And it stands to reason that if you pay more, you get more. I don't see what is so surprising to you about that. It is also an older phone. And that's the real strategy behind the T revisions. Most will go on a yearly cycle and the price goes down over the 12 months. With OP the price does not fall as the products only have a 6 month shelf life.

No triple camera, no headphone jack... Seems like you are only upgrading for the smaller notch and in-display fingerprint scanner. Not worth it in my opinion, maybe Oneplus will have a couple more tricks to unveil?
