The new Nightscape HDR has been in development and was perfected in time for the launch of the 6T device. Another confirmation from the company is represented by their work with Qualcomm to launch the 5G technology as soon as possible. So the differences here aren't major, but the OnePlus 6T is slightly taller, thicker and heavier than the OnePlus 6, which are perhaps not differences you'd have expected. It will also be compatible with Verizon. OnePlus too had made a big deal about how they would keep the headphone jack on the OnePlus 6. "It also has the same camera setup as the OnePlus 6 so you get a dual rear camera with main 16-megapixel Sony IMX 519 sensor (f/1.7, 25mm, 1/2.6", 1.22µm) with OIS, EIS, and PDAF, and 20-megapixel Sony IMX 376K secondary sensor (f/1.7, 25mm, 1/2.8", 1.0µm) with just PDAF. OnePlus says it has relied on a combination of software and hardware to make this feature very accurate. The company described it as "Screen Unlock" and claimed that it was the fastest in-display fingerprint sensor out there. The resolution is still 1080p, but it has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a "teardrop" notch. Not to mention the specs and in-display fingerprint scanner will be able to rival most new phones in early 2019.

To put it simply, OnePlus 6T is combining a number of images at various exposure levels together in this night mode and giving the best result, which is brighter with more details.

Another new mode found in the OnePlus 6T is Studio Lighting Mode which when the smartphone detects a face on-camera, it will tweak the lighting to improve the portraits. This model uses an optical camera sensor in the screen. OnePlus has introduced a new Nightscape feature to enhance the low-light photography. That means that it supports 1.2Gbps 4G LTE connectivity with the Snapdragon X20 modem, although markets that actually support those speeds are few and far between. While the Shenzhen-based company hasn't announced anything yet, rumors would have it that the device will only cost $640, The Inquirer reported. Smart Boost is another feature getting top billing - it stores app data in RAM for up to 20 percent speedier cold starts. The phone packs a giant 3,700mAh battery, which should easily last more than a day of normal usage.
