Alleged OnePlus 6T box leaks in photos, showing off in-display fingerprint sensor and 'waterdrop' notch

For the past few generations, OnePlus's phones have been heavily based on those from sister company OPPO. The OnePlus 6 was based on the OPPO R15, the OP5T was inspired by the R11s, and so on. OPPO's R17 debuted last month with an in-display fingerprint sensor and a 'waterdrop' notch, and — surprise! — the alleged box for the OnePlus 6T showcases those same features.

10 things I'd like to see in the (presumably) upcoming OnePlus 6T

The OnePlus 6 is, without much question in my mind, one of the best phones of this year. On paper, it matches most of 2018's flagships, but the aggressive pricing makes it a great value when compared to most of its competition. Still, there are a lot of ways that the OnePlus 6 could be improved if the company sticks to its mid-generation "T" refresh, and I've put together a decent-sized list of all the things I'd like to see in the OnePlus 6T.

OnePlus 5/5T get front camera portrait mode, OxygenOS app improvements, and much more in latest Open Betas

OnePlus is trucking along with Open Beta releases for the 5 and 5T. Unlike the last version, which was fairly minor, this one has a lot going on. Now, most of it is background/under the hood stuff, like optimizations and improvements. As usual, the changelog is below — let's take a look.

OxygenOS 5.1.5 for the OnePlus 5 and 5T has a hidden Treble surprise

When OnePlus released the OxygenOS Open Betas 13 and 11 for the OnePlus 5 and 5T, respectively, the company snuck in a little surprise in the form of support for Project Treble. That's a pretty big perk since Treble makes updates (and ROMs) easier for developers by further separating hardware from software when it comes to updating Android. Now that feature appears to have silently made its way to the OnePlus 5 and 5T with the recent Oxygen OS 5.1.5 update.

Oppo’s new R17 could become the basis for the OnePlus 6T

You can usually get a good idea what OnePlus' next phone will look like by keeping tabs on Chinese smartphone maker Oppo. The two firms share the same parent company and quite a lot of design resources. The R15 was a dead ringer for the OnePlus 6, and the R11S was basically the OnePlus 5T. The new R17 may very well be the foundation upon which OnePlus builds the still-unannounced 6T, and that could be cause for excitement. This phone has a tiny screen notch, slim bezels, and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

[Update: Next update will fix] Some OnePlus 6 displays flicker in bright light with adaptive brightness enabled

In the last couple of weeks, I noticed my own OnePlus 6 was having a bit of trouble when I was outdoors. If I went to check missed messages or train schedules on a sunny day, I'd notice the display seemed to flicker spastically between two different brightness levels. I pushed it out of my mind, assuming I imagined it, but according to reports compiled together by the folks at PiunikaWeb, I'm not alone.
