Samsung is losing customers to the competition in the Android space. According to new data from Counterpoint Research, over a third of Pixel 3 and OnePlus 6T owners in the fourth quarter of 2018 came from Samsung Galaxy devices. In stark contrast, less than one in five Pixel 3 and OnePlus 6T owners defected from Apple iPhone handsets. The data highlights Samsung's recent struggles in the smartphone space, as it pertains to sales. Samsung is not alone in that regard—the smartphone market as a whole has slowed in recent months, so there is a bigger trend at play. However, competition from Google and OnePlus with their latest flagship phones exacerbates the issue for Samsung, which is a market... Read more...
The OnePlus 6T launched in October and was praised for its style, features, performance, and low price for a flagship device. When Samsung and Apple are selling their flagship devices for $1,000 or, the OnePlus 6T onto the market packing a big 6.41-inch OLED screen and an in-screen fingerprint reader for $549. It's hard to call that a bargain, but comparatively, it is. The device launched with an unlocked version being sold directly from OnePlus and a version that was locked to T-Mobile. The T-Mobile version had some caveats compared to the unlocked flavor that OnePlus offered directly, namely that it would not receive software updates as quickly as the unlocked version would due to additional...

Late last month, we reported that OnePlus was working in conjunction with sports car manufacturer McLaren to create a special version of the newly released OnePlus 6T. Today, we're getting our first look at the device: the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. Promotional images of the device have turned up online and they show that the actual design of the McLaren Edition hasn't changed compared to its donor platform. However, there are highlights around the edges of the device that are finished in Speed Orange. The particular shade of orange should be instantly familiar to those that follow McLaren's road cars. In addition, there's a textured carbon fiber finish lurking beneath the glass backplate.... Read more...
Earlier this year we took a detailed look at the OnePlus 6 and determined it was one of the best values in Android flagship smartphones on the market. The OP6 has a beautiful, large display, a clean near-stock Android setup and great performance with 6GB or 8GB RAM standard at price points of $529 and $579 respectively. When rumors of the OnePlus 6T hit, we wondered if OnePlus could really improve on an already great design and offer even more of a good thing. As is the case with virtually any high tech device, trade-offs are a constant in the overall design equation. Then again, with its mantra of "Never Settle" seemingly driving the company's design choices, the question remained,...

According to a new leak making the rounds this morning OnePlus is working on a higher-end version of its OnePlus 6T flagship Android 9 Pie smartphone. The device will reportedly be called the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition and will have a whopping 10GB of onboard RAM. We've seen a handful 10GB Android phones announced over the past month, but this immense amount of RAM is by no means commonplace -- yet. According to MySmartPrice, OnePlus partnered with automotive manufacturer (and racing phenom) McLaren to design the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. At this time, it is unknown if the phone will be limited to special color choices and graphics, or if it will have a bespoke... Read more...

T-Mobile is offering to slash the price of the OnePlus 6T in half when trading in a qualifying phone, with the discount being applied over 24 monthly bill credits (essentially locking you into a two-year commitment). That's a tantalizing offer, though before you take the plunge, there are some things you should know about the model T-Mobile is selling. There are two ways to buy the OnePlus 6T.

After plenty of leaks, the OnePlus 6T has officially been revealed for all to see. There aren't too many surprises given what we already know about the device, but it's a beastly smartphone with value pricing, as is usually the case with OnePlus releases. Like most other Android flagships that have been released this year, the OnePlus 6T makes use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that can be paired with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. The talk of the town, however, will be the large 6.41-inch OLED display that the OnePlus 6T is rocking (up from 6.28 inches on the OnePlus 6). It still has a FHD+ resolution, but thankfully, the display notch has been reduced to a minuscule... Read more...
It feels like just about everything that could have been leaked about the upcoming OnePlus 6T already has, but just when we though the internet had run dry on the topic, BAM, a fresh set of press images hit the web. So did a full rundown of the handset's specifications. With that in mind, here's a courtesy SPOILER ALERT if you've managed to miss all the leaks, and like it that way. Source: OnePlus via mrgizmo.com For everyone else, well, let's talk about the OnePlus 6T. It doesn't appear OnePlus has tried very hard to keep anything a secret, and just a few weeks ago, the company even confirmed it would arrive with an in-display fingerprint sensor. "We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and... Read more...
If you were to drill a thousand holes into the roof of your home during a rainstorm, it still wouldn't leak as much as the OnePlus 6T, the worst kept secret on the web. It seems like every day there is a new leak pertaining to the unreleased device. So, it's no surprise that this week is shaping up any different. The latest rumor making the rounds is that OnePlus will bundle in a set of USB-C earbuds with the OnePlus 6T. That might not seem like a big thing, though it's notable because previously it was assumed they would sell separately. However, OnePlus may be extending an olive branch to users who are miffed at reports that the OnePlus 6T is ditching the trusty old 3.5mm audio jack, a decision... Read more...
At this point, we pretty know what the unreleased OnePlus 6T looks like, unless all of the leaked images up to now have been fake. We doubt that's the case. Lest anyone need one more reminder of the upcoming phone's design, yet more official looking press renders have found their way to the web, showing the OnePlus 6T from the front, back, and sides. If any of this looks familiar, it's because we've seen the same design several times over. Of particular note is the teardrop notch in the front of the display. For anyone who has not followed the history of the notch, it was first introduced by the Essential Phone, then later popularized by Apple on its iPhone X. There have been several Android...

Just a few months ago in April, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei championed the 3.5mm headphone jack in an interview, stating, "Every year I do a Twitter poll and the number of people taking part increases each time, this year there were over 19k votes, and 88% said they like physical headphone jacks." And when the OnePlus 6 (read the HotHardware review here) was officially unveiled in May, Pei mocked companies like Apple that abandoned the headphone jack. OnePlus 6T Now, OnePlus will do the exact same thing with the upcoming OnePlus 6T. Just as the OnePlus 6 embraced the notch, the OnePlus 6T is joining the growing numbers of smartphones that are forcing customers to 1) use a dongle,... Read more...
It was just a few short months ago when OnePlus launched its current flagship Android smartphone: the OnePlus 6. As one might expect with a high-end Android device in 2018, it came equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage and a notched display. The company is back it again, this time with the looming release of the OnePlus 6T. We've heard plenty of rumors about the OnePlus 6T over the past month, culminating with a leaked shot of the retail box for the smartphone. Now, however, OnePlus has actually confirmed one of the rumored features for the smartphone: an in-display fingerprint reader. We've seen such technology from... Read more...
