It has about 86% screen-to-body ratio and has Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. It is powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 845 chipset with up to 8GB of RAM, same as the OnePlus 6. The base version of the 6T now comes with 128GB storage, instead of 64GB in OnPlus 6.

It also has a 16MP Sony IMX 371 front camera with f/2.0 aperture, 1.0μm pixel size. The rear camera comes with Nightscape mode that can recognize night scenes and delivers brighter, more vivid images with more clarity and less noise. The OnePlus 6 users will get this feature via software update soon.
It runs on OxygenOS 9.0based on Android 9.0 (Pie) with support for Android’s full screen gestures. It has an in-display fingerprint sensor, which it calls ‘Screen Unlock’. According to the company the in-display fingerprint sensor can unlock the phone in 0.34 seconds. It also has face unlock feature that can unlock the phone in 0.4 seconds.
