The T-Mobile OnePlus 6T's second update adds an Assistant power button shortcut and not much else

Carrier versions of phones tend to get updates slower than their unlocked counterparts, so it's no surprise that the T-Mobile OnePlus 6T is receiving updates later than the standard model. This time around, the update's sole highlight is a new power button shortcut for Google Assistant, with everything else merely being upgrades and optimizations.

OnePlus 6T sales are up 249% over the OnePlus 6

OnePlus doesn't say a lot about its phone sales.

This is the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition: 10GB of RAM, orange accents, and 30W Warp Charging for $699

Sometimes a phone makes it all the way to release without so much as a tiny leak, but the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is definitely not one of those. We've seen images of the supposed new 6T variant pop up in the last week or two, and they were dead-on. The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition includes more RAM, a faster charger, and a fancy orange stripe. It's a racecar phone, but the design is perplexingly subtle and similar to existing 6T variants. It'll also cost you more than other OnePlus phones at $699. Still, it's the "best" version of the 6T you can get.

Fingerprint sensors mounted under phone screens have finally made it to market, and the OnePlus 6T is one of the first phones with the new tech. In our review, we found that the in-display sensor isn't as fast as previous OnePlus phones' fingerprint sensors have been, though it's still quick enough.

The OnePlus 6 is $100 off again in the US ($479+), $130 off in Canada ($639+)

Shortly after the 6T was released, OnePlus discounted all versions of the OP6 by $100. That was a solid deal, especially since the OP6 has continued to get better over time (and it still has a headphone jack). If you missed out on that sale, it's back — for both the US and Canada.

Some OnePlus 6Ts have an issue with waves of static on the display

Based on a handful of reports on the OnePlus product forums, some 6T owners have run into a problem with their phone's display in which a pixelated sort of "wave" or pulse of bright colors travels up or down the screen. A reliable trigger can't seem to be found, but for those that are affected, it appears to happen more often on the lock screen while using either OnePlus' face recognition or the in-display fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone.
