OnePlus 6T: First 'official' picture hinted cautious innovations

OnePlus 6T: First 'official' picture hinted cautious innovations

One striking feature of the OnePlus 6T's first "official" image is that: the fingerprint reader is missing underneath the dual LED flash on the back.

We learned quite a few details about the OnePlus 6T over the past few days, including the fact that the phone will sport an in-display fingerprint sensor, that it'll lack a headphone jack, and that it'll be available from T-Mobile, the first carrier in the U.S. to ever partner with the Chinese smartphone maker.

Robots will take 75 million jobs by 2022 says WEF
The report, released on September 17, forecasts that by 2025, half of all "work tasks" will be done by machines. That's up from 29% today and will lead to the displacement or loss of up to 75 million jobs by 2022.

The OnePlus 6T will be an iterative upgrade to the most successful OnePlus 6, which was launched in India at a price of Rs 34,999.

We all know that OnePlus is preparing to launch the OnePlus 6's successor at some point in October, with the 17th being a likely date, but apart from a few tidbits leaked by the company's co-founder Carl Pei, the rate of leaks has stopped well short of what we've seen with the Pixel 3.

Samsung bets on smartphone rear cameras
The Galaxy A7 comes with a 24 megapixel, 5 megapixel, and 8 megapixel camera on its back, and will begin sales in early October. It consists of a 24-megapixel lens with an LED flash, capable of taking bokeh-effect photos and creating AR Emojis .

Although the iPhone Xs Max took the top spot with the highest benchmark, the OnePlus 6 beat the Galaxy Note 9, LG G7 ThinQ and Galaxy S9+. The next official announcement, which concerns the "6T's" loss of a headphone jack, may modulate it somewhat, however.

As you can easily see, there's no triple-lens camera on this device. Unfortunately for the pre-existing leak, the two phones' camera modules line up exactly. Like always, there are a lot of expectations from the upcoming OnePlus 6T. In addition, a comparison with the OnePlus 6 shows that the position of the power button has been slightly changed and the new model appears to have slightly changed overall proportions, indicating a grown display. Under the hood we're expecting a Snapdragon 845 processor. This echoes the Oppo R17 Pro, which may well have influenced the OnePlus 6T's design, although there's no additional information on the supposed 'waterdrop' notch that could also make the transition from its BBK stablemate.
