OnePlus 6 Beta 6 introduces numerous OnePlus 6T’s software goodies

If you are a fan of trying out pre-release software, especially when it comes to Android releases from OnePlus, then the company has a brand new beta release for you.

We explore the key differences between the OnePlus 6T and its predecessor, the OnePlus 6. Expect the new model to do even better. Pretty much no other flagship phone offers one now, and sadly, the OnePlus 6T has joined that list. In India, the OnePlus 6T will retail for a starting price tag of Rs 37999.

T-Mobile has a unique model of the OnePlus 6T-its unit has 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a single SIM slot as opposed to the dual SIMs in unlocked 6T phones. T-Mobile has an exclusive on the 6T "for the life of the device", which typically means about six months in OnePlus-world. While the 6GB/128 variant is priced at Rs 37,999, the 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB variants are priced at Rs 41,999 and Rs 45,999. This the first time OnePlus has ditched the fingerprint sensor on a smartphone. According to OnePlus, it unlocks as quick as 0.34 seconds and the display is protected by the latest Gorilla Glass 6.

The display also serves as a home for an in-display fingerprint sensor, which is increasingly becoming popular with flagship Android smartphones. Other features on the phone include Full Screen Gestures 2.0 for smoother navigation, bottom facing speakers with Dirac Power Sound, Lift Up Display.

The foray by 5-year-old Shenzhen-based OnePlus comes after US mobile carriers AT&T and Verizon this year backed away from plans to work with China's Huawei on high-end phones in face of pressure from the USA government, which considers Huawei a security risk.

The next big change comes at the front of the phone as well. The small footprint increases the screen area on each side. It's also the first OnePlus phone to have an in-display fingerprint sensor touted as the "Screen Unlock".

However, charging remains the same, with OnePlus sticking to the Dash Charge standard that has been around since the OnePlus 3. The company says that a feature that lets users activate Google Assistant by long pressing the power button will soon make its way to the handset.

Although the Shenzhen-based manufacture was eager to detail the new improvement for the OnePlus 6, its hardware event was focused on the announcement of its successor. As revealed earlier, the OnePlus 6T lacks a headphone jack, though OnePlus is making up for it by including a beefier 3,700mAh battery with its fast charging capability still present. Low-light performance has also been improved.

Today, OnePlus is releasing the latest beta build for the OnePlus 6.
