OnePlus has just unveiled the company's newest flagship device, the OnePlus 6T, at its NY launch event named "Unlock the Speed" today.

Coming to what's new with the OnePlus 6T, the device will not have a physical fingerprint reader.

The front of the glass is crafted from tough Gorilla Glass 6 and the entire device weighs a trifling 185g. The OnePlus 6T also be Verizon-certified for the first time, though the nation's largest wireless carrier won't sell the phone itself. Soon after the OnePlus 3 launch, the company has been following a six-month cycle for every phone launch after.

As the crowd went cheering on all the information that was revealed about the 6T in India, there was exciting news for potential buyers.

A few weeks ago OnePlus announced a slew of United Kingdom retail partners that would be carrying the OnePlus 6T.

Although T-Mobile's product page doesn't specify the required condition for the trade-in, a company rep told me it must be "in good working condition - no cracked screen, no liquid damage".

Angela Merkel to step down as German chancellor

The OnePlus 6T has the same dual-camera system on the back embedded in the frosted or mirror glass back.

The OnePlus 6T features an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Another welcome addition is a 3700mAh battery, which is a 23% bump over the 3300mAh on the predecessor. As OnePlus points out, this is not a stable version of the software so you might expect to experience some bugs when installed.

Cristiano Amon, Qualcomm's president, was also present at the Q&A session, saying that companies like OnePlus will be "leading in bringing 5G technologies", to the market.

One side effect of the new sensor is the removal of a conventional 3.5mm port for headphones. And yes, OnePlus is bundling a USB-C to headphone adapter with the 6T. The device sports a dual rear camera setup comprising of 16MP + 20MP sensors and f/1.7 aperture. The company says it's worked hard on the camera software to improve low-light photography and has dubbed the feature Night Mode. It lowers the ISO and the shutter speed aided by AI for stability. The Open Beta 6 update also adds Studio Lighting, which produces professional lighting techniques for selfies similar to Apple's Portrait Lighting feature. It remains to be seen if this adaptation could make the 6 or 6T more competitive with the likes of the Pixel 3 series when the lights go down. But, there is one major caveat that doesn't allow the launcher to run on any device that isn't running OxygenOS 9 based on Android Pie.

Shipping on 6 November, the OnePlus 6T starts at £499 for the 6GB/128GB model, with the sweet spot at £529 for the 8GB/128GB model. There will be 128GB and 256GB storage configurations available at different prices.
