OnePlus is working on a new smartphone, the OnePlus 7, and the leaks to this point suggest it will feature a full-front display without a notch (including the lack of a teardrop notch) and a slider design. Interestingly though, it might not support wireless charging, even though that is quickly becoming a standard feature on flagship phones. So, what gives? Publicly, the company's stance is that wireless charging is not where it should be, and since OnePlus phones are apparently known for their charging capabilities, OnePlus has decided not to implement it into the OnePlus 7. "OnePlus charging is one of the best, Wireless charging is far inferior," OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said in an interview with... Read more...
Chinese smartphone makers like Huawei, OnePlus, and Xiaomi are growing rapidly amid a declining smartphone market for the big players like Samsung and Apple. Much of the reason is that Chinese devices have similar hardware and features, for much less money. A perfect example is the Xiaomi Mi 9 smartphone that debuted this week for under $450. OnePlus has new devices coming that are expected to be unveiled at MWC 2019 next week. OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition As we build up to the show, a new report has surfaced that claims OnePlus will launch a 5G smartphone in Q2 2019, but the report claims that the device won't come to the US. According to USA Today, the prototype 5G OnePlus smartphone is set to... Read more...
There is no denying that smartphone prices for flagship devices are getting out of control. We use to balk at spending $500 on a handset only a few years ago, and now high-end devices like the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy series often sell for over $1,000. High prices have opened the door for companies like OnePlus that make premium devices at much lower prices to step through and challenge Apple and Samsung for market dominance. Research firm Counterpoint has announced that in the Indian market, the best selling premium smartphone brand for Q4 2018 was OnePlus thanks to devices like the OnePlus 6T that debuted in October. What turned things around so quickly for OnePlus, according to Counterpoint,... Read more...
When Apple unveiled its first iPhone X in 2017, iPhone (and Android) fans around the world let out a collective gasp as they witnessed the next stage of smartphone design: the infamous "notch." From the get-go, notched designs seemed forced, especially when countless Android manufacturers jumped on the bandwagon seemingly instantaneously, as if major display manufacturers were behind the design trend. Today, Android smartphone vendors seem to have improved their notch smarts, with OnePlus being one of the best examples of how to make a good notch that doesn't stand out. On the OnePlus 6, the notched OP generation began with a modest footprint (and respectable "notch control"), while the OnePlus... 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...

If owning an actual McLaren is out of your budget, then perhaps a OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition smartphone is more up your alley. It's certainly more affordable than an actual McLaren—the asking price is $699, versus the British automaker's recently announced 720S Spider, a sexy convertible that starts at $315,000. The new OnePlus 6T McLaren is a "salute to speed" and a nod to McLaren's rich history. It features a carbon fiber pattern on the rear of the handset, inspired by McLaren being the first to use carbon fiber in its Formula 1. There's also some orange coloring on the bottom of the phone. As OnePlus points out, "Papaya Orange has long been a hallmark of McLaren’s car design."... Read more...
For a short period of time, it appeared as though OnePlus had scored a big victory in the smartphone wars, having apparently negotiated a deal to be the first phone maker to implement Qualcomm's new flagship Snapdragon 855 processor into an upcoming handset. OnePlus was to be the first to feature the new chip, the company's CEO Pete Lau announced on stage at Qualcomm's event in Hawaii. Unfortunately for OnePlus, something got lost in translation. The original slides that OnePlus put together for Qualcomm's Tech Summit said the handset OnePlus planned to release in 2019 would be "among the first" to use the Snapdragon 855 processor. However, the person who translated the company's slides is not... 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...
Is your smartphone starting feel a little long in the tooth? Now is a good time to upgrade due to the all of the extended Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. If you're willing to join Team Magenta (T-Mobile), you can effectively snag a brand new OnePlus 6T handset when trading in an eligible phone, in a roundabout sort of way. What do we mean by that? The freebie offer consists of $580 in bill credits, paid over time—there is a one-time trade-in bill credit, followed by 24 bill credits, according to T-Mobile's related FAQ. This means you have to pony up $580 for the OnePlus 6T (128GB + 8GB RAM) right off the bat, and then collect the refund in monthly chunks on your bill. The offer is... Read more...
The much anticipated OnePlus 6T has officially been on the market for a couple of weeks now, debuting at the end of October and going on sale direct from OnePlus on November 1, followed by sales activity at T-Mobile on November 5. So, what's next for the OnePlus 6T? For those who haven't already ordered one and are waiting for something a little different, a special purple color option is right around the corner.. OnePlus announced the new color option on Twitter. "Elegance infused with the brilliance of thunderstorms. #ThunderPurple is coming," OnePlus wrote. Colors can't just be normal colors anymore, they have to carry fancy monikers, like what you might find in a 64-pack of crayons—forget... 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. One is to order it direct from OnePlus, and if you go that route, you can choose between four different SKUs: OnePlus 6T (Mirror Black) w/ 6GB RAM + 128GB storage: $549 OnePlus 6T (Mirror Black) w/ 8GB RAM + 128GB storage: $579 OnePlus 6T (Midnight Black) w/ 8GB RAM + 128GB storage: $579 OnePlus 6T (Midnight...

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...
Make no mistake, the mobile industry is on a collision course with 5G connectivity, though the impact will not truly be felt until wireless carriers at large upgrade large swaths of territories with the faster technology. In the meantime, smartphone makers are preparing for that day. Which company will be first? It might be OnePlus. To be clear, the upcoming OnePlus 6T is not going to be a 5G-capable smartphone. That phone is essentially finished, assuming all of the leaks and rumors have been on point. It will arrive with the usual round of upgrades and high-end specs, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB or 8GB of RAM, improved cameras, and so forth. But it will be a 4G LTE smartphone.... 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...

The OnePlus 6T is likely one of the most highly anticipated flagship smartphones for 2018, not only due to the features that it will bring to the table, but also because of the company's reputation for value pricing. While the smartphone isn't expected to make its global debut until October 17th, new renders have shown off the device from nearly every angle. We've previously seen shots of the smartphone from the front, which show its drastically reduced display notch. The notch is better integrated this time around and deftly contours around the single front-facing selfie camera. There are minimal bezels along the side of the display, while there's a small "chin" at the bottom. Out... Read more...
If you're a OnePlus 6 owners, there's a fresh, hot delivery coming your way today. After a lengthy beta period where testers were able to give the Android 9 Pie-based OxygenOS 9.0 a try, OnePlus has announced that the production release of the operating system is available to download. Now before you all start rushing to the Settings app to initiate the OS update, we have to warn you that this rollout is being staged. OnePlus doesn't want everyone crowding its servers at once, and this will give the company a chance to catch any initial installation issues with a smaller sample size.  "The OTA will be received by a limited number of users today and will have a broader rollout in a few days...

If you were asked to guess which smartphone maker now has plans to launch its own television, you'd say OnePlus, because read the headline. Had you not, however, you might have guessed Apple. it would have been a logical guess, based on past rumors, but also wrong. OnePlus is on track to beat Apple to the punch with what it's calling the OnePlus TV. OnePlus is best known for its smartphone lineup, of course, as that is primarily what it builds and sells (along with a spattering of related accessories). And it all began "with a simple, bold idea: make a better phone." The company has released several handsets since starting out in 2013, and is about to launch the OnePlus 6T. But shove the OnePlus...

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...
