However, during the unveiling of the OnePlus 6T at the company's scheduled hardware event in New York City yesterday, the company admitted fans had asked for better performance in low-light conditions from its system.

The new flagship features all new 6.41-inch display (19.5:9 aspect ratio) along with the new in-screen fingerprint scanner (which the company has been promoting as a new way to unlock the phone for a while now).

To celebrate the launch of the flagship, T-Mobile is working with OnePlus on a trade-in offer of several eligible smartphone devices for a $300 discount when purchasing the OnePlus 6T. As the leaks suggested, it gets an in-display fingerprint sensor, a smaller notch, and a bigger battery.

Previously, OnePlus phones were available only from O2 or from OnePlus itself in the United Kingdom, but this year things are a little different. If you want to get your hands on one, you've come to the right place.

The display size has been increased by 2 per cent over the OnePlus 6.

The dual-camera setup at the back includes 16-megapixel + 20-megapixel sensors for great photos.

Another new feature that OnePlus has introduced in OnePlus 6T is studio light in the portrait mode. You can buy a OnePlus 6T from OnePlus unlocked and bring it to Verizon, if you wish, but you can't buy a OnePlus 6T directly from Verizon.

The 6T runs the latest Android OxygenOS 9.0 and, like the 6, is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor. Soon after the OnePlus 3 launch, the company has been following a six-month cycle for every phone launch after. This phone offers some relatively new innovations such as Screen Unlock, an optical in-display fingerprint scanner.

And a Smart Boost feature will improve app cold start speeds by between 5 and 20 per cent. OnePlus has also chose to ditch the headphone jack and go with a single Type-C port.

To accommodate a bigger battery, OnePlus has ditched the 3.5mm jack this time.

The OnePlus 6T will be available in Mirror Black and Mirror Black, from 6 November with prices starting at £499.

Apart from that, OnePlus also confirmed that they will be partnering with T-Mobile in the USA to make the 6T available to the customers.

The smartphone will also be available in two additional configurations, with the middle model featuring 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, and the top-of-the-line model including 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Although the smartphone doesn't support wireless charging technology, it does comes with the company's proprietary Fast Charge fast charging technology.
