In terms of connectivity, OnePlus proudly highlights that the OnePlus 6T supports 42 global LTE bands along with 4×4 MIMO and Cat.16 LTE.

OnePlus claims that the in-display fingerprint technology is the fastest in the world, taking just 0.34 seconds to unlock and supported by sophisticated self-learning algorithms.

OnePlus 6T has a waterdrop-style notch, with a three-in-one ambient light sensor, distance, and RGB sensor, and front-facing camera.

The OnePlus 6T also features a software implementation called Smart Boost. With this implementation, OnePlus claims that the design of the phone is aesthetically better and has been able to bring the sensor back to the front, which is perceived to be a better position for the sensor.

The OnePlus 6T is powered by a 3,700 mAh battery, which provides a 20% increase in battery life compared to OnePlus 6, for a full day of power in half an hour.
