OnePlus 6T render
Despite the OnePlus 6T being almost identical to the original OnePlus 6 when it comes to internal characteristics, it will bring a few new features to the table such as a larger battery, an in-display fingerprint scanner and now, according to one company representative, Night Mode.
As this photography-focused feature has never been included on a OnePlus device before, the results that are to be expected remain largely unclear. However, if competing smartphones are anything to go by, it will most likely bring vast improvements to both clarity and detail in low-light scenarios with the help of software trickery. It should also reduce the amount of noise typically present in these images.
Presumably, this new feature will arrive as part of the new Oxygen OS update that will come pre-installed on the 6T. This would suggest that the OnePlus 6 and possibly older smartphones could eventually take advantage of Night Mode too through a future software update. Aside from these enhancements to the camera app, the Oxygen OS version pre-installed on the next OnePlus flagship will also introduce a new and improved gesture-based navigation system. Furthermore, big improvements to the actual UI are to be expected too, although the company is yet to specify what kind of changes the update entails.
In any case, those interested in the OnePlus 6T will be able to pick it up starting November 6 in Europe and November 2 in India. The release date in the US is yet to be confirmed but, once this happens, consumers will also be able to purchase it through T-Mobile.
