               After a ton of rumors,speculations and lengthy promotional campaign the OnePlus has finally launched the much awaited flagship smartphone OnePlus 6T yesterday at an event held in New York City. As previous OnePlus models the  the OnePlus 6T also promises to offer the flagship experience with uncompromising build and features at a affordable price which has always been the motto of OnePlus.  It seems the most important improvements in the novelty are in hardware and software,the OnePlus 6T now feature a display with improved screen to body ratio,thanks to the new water drop notch design, while it is also equipped with the whole new in-display fingerprint scanner which could unlock the device in as little as a third of second.
                The  OnePlus 6T feature 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED  display (~85.6% screen-to-body ratio) with a resolution of  2280 x 1080, with an aspect ratio of 19:9 (~402 ppi density).  The OnePlus 6T also has visibly smaller top and bottom bezels than its predecessor, thanks in part to the new notch whereas the body of the device is made out of glass (Gorilla Glass 6 protection at the back as well as front) and aluminum frame which makes it more lighter without compromising on durability.The FP sensor appears to be of the optical variety, meaning that light from the display illuminates your finger as it is being read. This is the same technology utilized in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, so it's not entirely new. However, the OnePlus 6T will be the first phone launched in the US with this feature on board.
