OnePlus 6T is set to cost more and won’t have wireless charging

Leaked render of One Plus 6T

Speaking to CNET, he revealed among other things that the OnePlus 6T will be more expensive than the OnePlus 6.

OnePlus's Carl Pei said previously that the decision to remove the jack has to do with adding new technology as well as improving battery life. These include the fact that the 6T will cost more than the 6 on release. In short, it's because the in-display scanning technology (officially referred to as "Screen Unlock") isn't cheap, but the company thinks its serious enough to warrant bumping up the price.

The United Kingdom has only the 8/128 GB variants that go for £519, while the Netherlands is the only European place where you can buy all the phones you want, including the Silk White variant.

The OnePlus 6T will several interesting new features - for OnePlus at least - including a waterdrop-style notch at the top of the display. The fingerprint reader takes up essential space inside the phone, near the bottom, CNET explains. It is also expected to boast faster Warp Charge (aka Dash Charge) technology.

The OnePlus 6T was recently spotted on in-action on the famous television show KBC hosted by the brand ambassador of OnePlus, Amitabh Bachchan using the in-screen fingerprint sensor on the OnePlus 6T. "Prepare for the", which again, hints towards the availability of the in-screen fingerprint sensor beneath the display of the smartphone.

- In India, OnePlus 6T is likely to have a starting price of around Rs 35,000.

Finally, the OnePlus CEO noted that there is no IP rating in the OnePlus 6T.

The move might be related to keeping costs down, which seems to be a priority for the company. He said that OnePlus 6T is more water-resistant than any of its predecessors and can survive a drop in the sink or a splash during a rainstorm.

Will a lack of a headphone jack, IP rating or wireless charging make you look elsewhere or is it something you'd prefer to have but not a deal breaker? For OnePlus to undergo that certification for the very very few users who "go swimming" with their phone would make the phone approximately US$30 more, something they were not willing to do. That's because the parts that OnePlus won't change concern the hardware.

Elsewhere, not too much is known about the OnePlus 6T.

OnePlus is mere weeks away from unveiling its next flagship smartphone, the mid-cycle OnePlus 6T.
