OnePlus will be launching its latest flagship smartphone in the coming months. Going by the OnePlus 6 launch schedule, we are expecting the upcoming OnePlus 7 to be unveiled in the month of May. However, there are already a bunch of Snapdragon 855-powered smartphones from established brands like Samsung to the newly announced sub-brands like Vivo’s iQOO. When a new OnePlus smartphone launches, the company usually discontinues the old-gen products instead of selling them at a lower price.
Interestingly, the company today announced a whopping CNY 400 (approx INR 4,000) price cut on the base variant of the OnePlus 6T which comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. While the OnePlus 6T 6GB RAM variant was launched for CNY 3399, it is now retailing for CNY 2999 (approx INR 29,999) in China. Except for the McLaren edition, the company also dropped the prices of other OnePlus 6T variants.
The 8GB RAM variant of OnePlus 6T with 128GB and 256GB storage options is now costing CNY 3199 (approx INR 31,999) and CNY 3599 (approx INR 35,999) respectively. As of now, the price drop is only limited to the Chinese market. However, the company might soon slash the price of the OnePlus 6T in the global markets as well. With the price drop on the OnePlus 6T, we also expect them to reveal the launch details of the OnePlus 7 in the coming weeks.
The OnePlus 6T comes with a 6.41-inch OpticAMOLED display with Full HD+ (2340 × 1080 pixels) resolution and waterdrop notch. Under the hood, it comes powered by the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform coupled with Kryo 385 CPU and Adreno 630 GPU. It is also the first OnePlus device to come with Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. In terms of optics, the OnePlus 6T sports 16MP + 20MP dual rear cameras with f/1.7 aperture and a 16MP single front camera with f/2.0 aperture.
While the McLaren edition comes with Warp Charge 30 fast charging technology with 30W output, the standard variant sticks with the 20W Dash Charge technology. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
