OnePlus 6T launch live stream: how to watch it and what to expect

OnePlus 6T launch live stream: how to watch it and what to expect

On Monday, Oneplus introduced various accessories and camera features of the new phone during their global launch in NY. You can buy a OnePlus 6T from OnePlus unlocked and bring it to Verizon, if you wish, but you can't buy a OnePlus 6T directly from Verizon.

OnePlus 6T will run the latest Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. This makes it Rs 3,000 more expensive than the base variant of the OnePlus 6.

The new OnePlus 6T is a smartphone that can keep up with Apple and Samsung products, according to reviews.

Perhaps the biggest bummer is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. T-Mobile has an exclusive on the 6T "for the life of the device", which typically means about six months in OnePlus-world.

Another new mode found in the OnePlus 6T is Studio Lighting Mode which when the smartphone detects a face on-camera, it will tweak the lighting to improve the portraits.

"That's not OnePlus. That's us, putting the critical offer out in the marketplace to get people excited", said Jon Freier, EVP of T-Mobile USA retail. Huawei has denied the charge. At least in the United States. Because the OnePlus 6T has a Qualcomm system-on-chip, the USA government has no reason to distrust its abilities.

After the successes of the OnePlus 6, the company will be hoping to get a similar kind of response with its new flagship device that has been launched in NY today. Already launched in the United States market at $549, the phone will go on sale on November 1. Almost 200,000 customers have already brought theirs to the Un-carrier - paying full price up front - before we even started carrying them. Wow! "It is a good time for us". Buyers can also avail a bunch of launch day offers.

"I would love to tell everything in detail, but I'm sure my PR team would not be happy if I were to do that", OnePlus CEO Pete Lau joked on Monday after the OnePlus 6T event, when answering a question about the company's 5G plans. It derives two-thirds of its revenue from outside China and is the top seller of premium smartphones in India. OnePlus says it's measured the unlock speed of the fingerprint scanner to 350 milliseconds. The relationship helps OnePlus keep its costs low, said Canalys analyst Mo Jia.

Pei shrugged off any concerns that US consumer sentiment would be affected by the China-US trade conflict.

Pei, who was born in China and raised in Sweden, said the brand is cross-cultural and worldwide: "When we started, we saw that through social media, you can talk to everyone around the world, as long as you can speak their language".

India has always been a key market for OnePlus. "But we need to make sure they are that independent actor and can not be leveraged by the Chinese government to hurt our national security".
