Should You Buy OnePlus 6T Or Wait For OnePlus 7? [Strategic Analysis]

Should You Buy OnePlus 6T Or Wait For OnePlus 7? [Strategic Analysis]

OnePlus announced its new smartphone in NY on Monday, and that the company is partnering with the US -based carrier T-Mobile for the first time.

OnePlus had sent out invites for the India launch event, that are set for October 30, which is today.

The new move may be down to the OnePlus 6T's higher price tag, which could mean more customers opt to buy the phone on contract rather than outright as many have previously.

The Chinese smartphone maker unveiled three variants of the new flagship device - 6GB RAM + 128GB memory, 8GB RAM + 128GB memory and 8GB RAM + 256GB memory. Although OnePlus's previous smartphones have been available in the country unlocked, the launch of the OnePlus 6T marks the first occasion on which the OEM offered one of its smartphone models in the collaboration with one of the country's carriers, which should greatly contribute to the brand's recognition. The company will be live streaming the event, and you can catch the live stream below. Here, we share the best OnePlus 6T deals in the United Kingdom, whether you plan to buy SIM-free or on contract. The phone will be available exclusively on Amazon India starting November 2. It sports a 6.41-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels ) AMOLED display with an 19.5:9 aspect ratio, as well as support for sRGB (100.63 percent) and DCI-P3 colour gamuts. The cashback will be credited to the Amazon Pay account by November 6 and the free pair of Type-C Bullets earphones can be ordered separately with a coupon code. There aren't a lot of new features on the software side of things, barring new camera features and new navigation gestures. We'd recommend the 20GB data option, which costs £43.31 per month and £20 upfront, but take a look at the O2 OnePlus 6T page to choose the contract that suits you. Another highlight upfront is an in-display fingerprint sensor, which OnePlus calls "Screen Unlock".

Unlike the other T variants of OnePlus, the recent OnePlus 6T is quite different compared to OnePlus 6. Underlining the overall design of the smartphone is the all-new Waterdrop Notch on the top, housing sensors and all-new 20MP front camera.

While the "Nighscape" feature promised better pictures in low-light and at night, "Studio Lightening" ensures better potrait images.

The phone is powered by a 3700mAh battery with OnePlus' proprietary Fast Charging capability. While the OnePlus 6 has its fingerprint sensor at the rear, under the camera, the OnePlus 6T brings the sensor back to the front. It is also the first OnePlus smartphone which ships without the popular 3.5mm headphone jack.
