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. Almost 200,000 customers have already brought theirs to the Un-carrier - paying full price up front - before we even started carrying them. Wow!

Another new mode found in the OnePlus 6T is Studio Lighting Mode which when the smartphone detects a face on-camera, it will tweak the lighting to improve the portraits.

OnePlus 6T starts at £499 and comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage.

On the pricing front, OnePlus 6T 6GB/128 GB Mirror black variant will cost $549, 8GB/128 GB variant can be purchased at $579 whereas the high end 8GB/256 Gb version will set you back $629. The company will be live streaming the event, and you can catch the live stream below.

If you want to try out the new beta software, check out OnePlus's forum post through the source link below. The 6T houses a 3,700mAh battery which is 400mAh more than the OnePlus 6 and will deliver 23 per cent better battery life, OnePlus claims.

Beneath the hood, the 6T runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and OxygenOS with Android 9.0. It goes on sale from November 1 on Amazon.in and OnePlus store along with being available in Reliance Digital and Croma stores across India.

The highlight feature has to be the in-display fingerprint scanner, that again, is not a new feature, and Vivo has strong claims to hold that laurel in the industry. "As a comparison, the OnePlus 6 has a smaller 6.28" Full HD+ AMOLED display with a slightly shorter 19:9 aspect ratio. The OnePlus Explorer backpack will be available later on invite basis at Rs 4,990. The second is that OnePlus is simply showing off which networks its new phone will work on. It produces brighter images in low-light, with reduced noise, using a new HDR algorithm across a 2-second exposure, and splicing together the resultant up to 10 multi-frame shots together.

The other change in this update is something that doesn't affect you or me much at all, but simultaneously makes a visual improvement while stepping away from a core Android aesthetic. Another highlight upfront is an in-display fingerprint sensor, which OnePlus calls "Screen Unlock". It's also worthy to note that the OnePlus 6 isn't that far behind as it is placed 4th, just behind the Xiaomi black shark which is now currently placed 3rd. The notch houses a 16MP selfie camera and an ambient light sensor. Which also means that OnePlus 6 might be the last OnePlus phone to have a 3.5mm jack. The 6T does have a fast fingerprint reader to unlock the phone, but it isn't as fast as one would expect.

The phone is powered by a 3700mAh battery with OnePlus' proprietary Fast Charging capability.
