The OnePlus 6T launch event is planned for today, where the Chinese mobile phone manufacturer will unveil its next flagship. The event was postponed from its earlier date on October 30 to avoid a collision with Apple's October event on the same date. After a series of teasers, the update of the OnePlus cycle will be presented at the kick-off event in New York. This global launch will be followed by an event in India on Tuesday at 20:30 IST. Interestingly, it will be the company's first smartphone to launch in the United Arab Emirates.
The OnePlus 6T is expected to bring some improvements over its predecessor. The company has confirmed some important updates, such as an in-display fingerprint sensor and the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack, and other indications that the OnePlus 6T will retain most of the specifications and design features of the OnePlus 6. These include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of built-in memory, and a dual-camera setup on the back. Notably, OnePlus will be streaming the New York launch event for the OnePlus 6T live on YouTube.
