The OnePlus 6T price in the United States was revealed at the NY launch event on Monday.

People excited after the "colourful" launch of the iPhone XR shouldn't expect the same from the OnePlus 6T. OnePlus has always been very committed at rolling out regular software updates to its phones, and for the OnePlus 6T as well it follows the same strategy.

There's also a new Nightscape feature for better low-light shots of cityscapes, and a studio lighting feature for portrait mode shots that's created to provide more even lighting for faces. To make the phone sturdier, OnePlus has provided Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

The OnePlus 6T was unveiled on the eve of an Apple event in the USA, where the iPhone-maker is tipped to unveil new iPad tablets and Mac computers.

Another change is the speaker has moved to the top of the device. The successor to OnePlus 6 features 6.4-inches Optic OLED screen and in-display fingerprint scanner feature named "Screen Unlock" that unlocks the device in just 0.34 seconds. The smartphone has a 3D glass back, made from multiple layers of glass, it includes anti-glare coating and a texturized multilayer film. Having said that, OnePlus 6T has got its first Oxygen OS update today.
