October is going to be a big month. Google Pixel 3, LG V40 ThinQ, Nokia 9, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Razer Phone 2 and of course the OnePlus 6T, all set to be announced in October. For OnePlus it has not been long since their impressive OnePlus 6 was released so it is no surprise to see them beginning the hype train just a couple of weeks out from the announcement.
We saw them send out a teaser of their in-display fingerprint sensor yesterday and in true OnePlus style that isn’t enough with another teaser heading out today. The new teaser talks about not just unlocking the future but also about the OnePlus 6T having “more power”.

While it has been leaked that the OnePlus 6T will have a larger battery than the OnePlus 6 we feel that there could be more to it. OnePlus are facing a lawsuit in Europe over the previous name of their proprietary charging solution — when tested with an OPPO VOOC charger it worked exactly the same and just as well. It makes sense that VOOC was the same as Dash Charging afterall OPPO and OnePlus are sister companies with a common parent.
Now OPPO have SuperVOOC which can charge their battery from 0-100% full in just 35 minutes. It is present in both the Find X and the R17 Pro so it stands to reason that OnePlus will want to put a version of it in their new phone. The video above talks about the future and has the picture of a battery — surely that can only mean OnePlus’ version of SuperVOOC? OnePlus often borrow things from the OPPO side of the factories and you can be sure they try and take this for their new flagship.
As I said, October looks set to be a big month. OnePlus always offer a very compelling package with their phones and we are definitely looking forward to bringing you all the information on it up until it’s announcement on the 17th of October. Hopefully this year they decide to sell it directly into Australia, unlikely but we can only dream.
How many of you would buy one of these if you could pick it up in JB Hi-Fi and the likes?
