Mobile brands, such as football teams or fashion firms, have their fans. As soon as the manufacturer makes a new model, the followers run to acquire it, although the technical innovations do not justify the expense. Manzana It is by far the most popular brand, even if it is the third in sales. But OnePlus It is not going to lag behind. His proselytes are less than those of the apple brand but equally fanatical. To reward them, the Chinese manufacturer has presented on Monday in New York the OnePlus 6T, a much improved update of his successful predecessor, the OnePlus 6.
To be faithful to his followers, OnePlus has had to advance the premiere of his new smartphone in New York in a day, not to coincide with the presentation that Tomorrow will make Apple of his new Mac and iPad also in the city of skyscrapers.
Regarding the previous model, the OnePlus 6T draws attention for its almost instant unlocking system by a fingerprint scanner embedded under the glass screen, a screen that grows up to 6.41 inches, the same processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 ) and a more powerful battery (3,700 mAh) that charges the phone in half an hour.
The unlock system, which starts the phone in 0.34 seconds and is the fastest on the market, can also be used to launch applications quickly, by holding the screen and once the device is unlocked, an access bar appears direct to the customizable application.
The OnePlus6T will be launched in Spain as of November 10 in two black ranges. The version of 6GB of RAM and 128 of storage costs 549 euros; the 8GB RAM7 128 GB, 579 euros, and the 8GB / 256, 629 euros.
In the cameras, OnePlus has not signed up to the trend of filling their new device with lenses. The main camera has only two lenses of 16 and 20 megapixels (MP), both with aperture f / 1.7 and, a selfies camera of 20 MP and aperture f / 2.0 In this area the main novelty is a special night mode to take captures in low light scenarios. Record video in 4K quality. In addition to capturing images in 4K and has Super Slow Motion setting to record in slow motion.
Many wonder if the OnePlus 6T is up to the latest photo prodigies launched by the competition, such as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, but the answer may be in the price, considerably more affordable in the case of OnePlus. In fact, the 6T disputes the market of the high-end range to terminals like Mi Mix 3 of Xiaomi, presented last week.
But unfortunately, the OnePlus 6T does eliminate the 3.5mm headphone jack, to opt for wireless headphones, a trend that Apple inaugurated and bovine followed by the other manufacturers. To mitigate the damage, you can buy a type C USB headset that connects to the charging port. In addition, the box includes an adapter for old headphones.
The slightly curved screen, with its tab (notch) maintains the Full HD resolution (2340 x 1080) instead of jumping to the QHD that equips the smartphones high range of its rivals, although it grows up to 6.41 inches and bets for the elimination of frames up to an 86% use of the screen. It has a night mode that reduces blue light, which helps reduce eye fatigue in low light environments and makes it easier to fall asleep; and a reading mode, which eliminates color, showing content in monochrome.
In the design, it is very close to the latest releases of Oppo, a brand that belongs to BBK, the same Chinese conglomerate of OnePlus.
OnePlus 6T has a game mode, which improves the gaming experience by reducing or blocking incoming notifications, blocking the brightness level of the screen and redirecting network data to gaming applications while limiting the use of data by part of other applications. Thanks to the Smart Boost function, the cold start speed of the application is improved between 5% and 20% by storing frequently used application data in the phone's RAM memory.
The OnePlus 6T comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Adreno 630 graphics card, Android 9 Pi operating system, with customization layer OxygenOS, which ensures fast operation, with call to a contact in 0.5 seconds and camera opening in 0, 6 seconds It brings two versions of 6 GB and 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB and 256 GB of storage, not expandable with microSD cards, and Android 9 Pi operating system.
The usual sales channel of OnePlus is Internet and, like Apple, it prefers word of mouth from its fans than traditional advertising. However, the brand, which will celebrate its fifth anniversary, also wants to start in physical stores but with a very peculiar model. It's about stores pop-up or emergent, ephemeral commercial spaces that are assembled coinciding with the launch and are dismantled in a few days. In Spain, it seems that there will be two such spaces next Wednesday, November 6, simultaneously in Madrid and Barcelona.
