OnePlus 6T sales will start November 6 in Europe, November 2 in India

OnePlus 6T sales will start November 6 in Europe, November 2 in India
The OnePlus 6T has been leaking like crazy for the past few weeks, although obviously not as much or as often as Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. While OnePlus isn’t trolling its fans (yet) with any cryptic social media updates possibly confirming various conspiracy theories, it’s good to remember not all rumors should be blindly trusted.

Case in point, the actual announcement of the OnePlus 6T is officially scheduled for October 30 and sales will kick off on November 6, with the two dates differing slightly from those making the rumor rounds.

OnePlus has explicitly confirmed the November 6 commercial release date for the old continent, with orders set to open at 10 am GMT for eager buyers in the UK and 10 am CET for folks living elsewhere in Europe. 

We’re pretty sure that means US sales will be underway early that same morning, but interestingly enough, the OnePlus 6T is expected to arrive in India first, on November 2, presumably in limited quantities.

New Delhi and New York City are slated to host formal launch events on October 30 at the KDJW Stadium and Pier 36, starting at 8:30 PM IST and 11 AM EDT respectively. Early bird tickets for the US gathering are still available at $20 a pop, while India launch attendees will be able to book their participation starting October 17.

Recommended retail pricing remains one of the few OnePlus 6T question marks, as the inclusion of an in-display fingerprint sensor and the absence of both a headphone jack and wireless charging functionality have been etched in stone. 

We also know a larger screen and battery are in the pipeline, along with a smaller, subtler notch, the same Snapdragon 845 processor, and most likely, similar memory/storage configurations as the OnePlus 6.

Ok, so I officially hate waterdrop notches. Look at the Essential notch. Vastly better looking. Why those huge radiuses on the notch design ? It really doesn't make sense, the whole thing feels like a stop gap to something much better.

Essential notch is the uglier and more intrusive one compared to waterdrop. Have you seen how deep down it goes in the screen ? One could pack two cameras vertically in that space. Whereas in waterdrop one, there are also proximity and infrared sensors present.

If they hit $600 the discounted Samsung and LG phones will make their price argument a moot point. Good luck OnePlus.
