The OnePlus 6T arrives on October 30th, and as we count days to the official debut, more interesting details about the device still continue to pop up. First, OnePlus in collaboration with Amazon.in are already taking pre-orders for the device just ahead of its official debut. OnePlus customers can also pre-order the upcoming device through Croma outlets and OnePlus exclusive offline stores, and aside from being one of the first to get hold of the device, OnePlus is also offering customers a pair of OnePlus’ all-new Type-C Bullets earphones, worth Rs. 1,490 in addition to Rs. 500 in the form of Amazon Pay Balance on completion of the purchase of the OnePlus 6T.

In addition, Oneplus has just cleared the air on what might be one of the upcoming OnePlus 6T most exciting feature – the in-display fingerprint sensor. While there are currently only two available options, OnePlus earlier today confirmed that the upcoming OnePlus 6T will come fitted with a new optical fingerprint module housing a small lens that can accurately register your fingerprint when pressed down on the cover glass. Though ultrasonic fingerprint readers have been adjudged the best, however, the optical fingerprint can be as good if well implemented.
Finally, the OnePlus is said to be moving towards the use of wireless headphones, as the Oneplus 6T will reportedly ditch the 3.5mm audio jack for the all-new Type-C Bullets earphones. This tradeoff is as a result of the inclusion of the in-display fingerprint sensor, while it could also create room for more battery.
Set to go official on October 30th, the upcoming Oneplus 6T is expected to get a slight price hike, considering the upgrade. And speaking of the price, there are rumours that customers will have to part with $21 more than they did for the OnePlus 6.
