OnePlus 6 to OnePlus 6T – Changes, Headphone Port, and More

From OnePlus 6 to OnePlus 6T: everything that has changed

OnePlus 6 to OnePlus 6T –

The long-awaited moment has arrived, both by the smartphone industry itself and by the followers of a brand that has been improving sensations for years, such as OnePlus. Now we already have among us the new OnePlus 6T, the new phone from the Chinese firm, high-end by specifications but not by price, and that is a new leap compared to its now small brother, the OnePlus 6.

Just six months ago, the OnePlus six debuted carrying what was then one of the best configurations that could be included in a mobile phone, always with some nuances. Now, this successor is here, following his builder’s line of two phones per year. How much have things changed in these six months?So much so that the older model is no longer worth going to? Let’s see the evolution from one phone to another. Join us.

The most significant change with the arrival of the new OnePlus 6T is in the aesthetic section, although it also slightly influences the use of the device itself. This change is none other than in terms of the screen, where the manufacturer has changed the ‘notch’ shape and incidentally has stretched the diagonal a bit. Nothing exaggerated, but enough to gain surface area and some pixels with the jump.

OnePlus has decided to bet again on the AMOLED screen, maintaining the high quality of its phones’ last generation. The caveat is that here we are not 6.28 inches, but we get to 6.41 inches. 0.13 inches of difference with which we gain 60 pixels in height, now having 2,340 x 1,080 pixels and a 19.5: 9 ratio typical of phones with hardly any frames.

The ‘notch,’ as we said before, is reduced to the minimum expression. OnePlus thus follows the path of its Vivo brothers and places a ‘waterdrop’ or ‘raindrop’ eyebrow on its screen. A small ‘notch’ enough to house the front camera. We can hide it if we want, although it is a discreet design that allows us to take advantage of the sides for icons and notifications.

This screen has a trick: it can read fingerprints

Another evolution between the two phones has come with the fingerprint reader. It was already present, as in previous phones, but we had it on our back. Under the flash, under the rear camera system, positioned vertically and centered concerning the device’s width. Now the rear camera has no companions other than the flash since the fingerprint reader has traveled to the front. To the bottom frame? No, it’s under the screen.

OnePlus has opted for the idea of ​​Synaptics for its reader under the screen. This optical reader operates through the glass itself instead of Qualcomm, which works by ultrasound and models our footprint in three dimensions. It may require some adaptation, as resting your finger on the screen to unlock the phone is not yet a natural gesture, but with a little time, we can adapt. The OnePlus 6T, therefore, joins the list of phones with fingerprint reading under the glass.

Of course, we can still unlock the phone thanks to facial recognition and without hardware add-ons.

Like the one already entered in the manufacturer’s catalog through the OnePlus 5T, the front camera of the phone can map our face and use our face in the same way that the fingerprint reader uses our finger:

a key to access the mobile phone, and also to authorize mobile payments with it.

RIP, headphone port

New generation, new change, and those who love the headphone port will undoubtedly be a disappointment. OnePlus has decided to imitate other manufacturers who are beginning to discard the presence of this port and have deleted it from its configuration. The new OnePlus 6T outputs the sound through the USB Type-C port, although it may not affect you if you already have Bluetooth headphones for your day-to-day. OnePlus, announces its new Bullet with USB C port.

Luckily, we will find the much-appreciated adapter in the phone box to continue using our old 3.5mm jack headphones. Connecting this adapter will mean that we will have some advantages in customizing the sound, although not too many. It cannot say that this leap forward, at the generational level, has been especially sensitive in terms of sound. The headphone jack, therefore, remove to gain interior space.
