The OnePlus 6T is officially announced and it’s essentially an updated bigger brother of the previous OnePlus 6. It has a larger display, a bigger battery but it loses a couple of favourite features from the OnePlus line-up.
UPDATE: You can pre-order the OnePlus 6T in Malaysia starting 30 October 2018.
The OnePlus 6T is launching next Monday and if you’re thinking of getting a unit, it looks like it will be coming to Malaysia very soon. This is the latest flagship smartphone from OnePlus that offers a larger display with a smaller notch and it now comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
This is great news for OnePlus fans for a number of reasons, one of which is that Android 9 Pie brings with it a whole bunch of improvements to the Android platform. Some that we’re very excited about is the new gesture-based navigation and better battery management features. If you want to know more about Android Pie, you can check out our detailed post here.
The OnePlus will be unveiling a new flagship smartphone in the next few weeks. Unlike the previous OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5T, the upcoming OnePlus 6T will come with significant changes on its design and it will be their largest device yet. Ahead of its big event, OnePlus has released a teaser which confirms a new major feature and an omission of a fan favourite.
OnePlus is expected to release another smartphone before the year is out. Similar to last year, there will be an updated “T” model for the current OnePlus 6. The hardware underneath should remain about the same but you could expect a larger display and possibly a bigger battery with the upcoming OnePlus 6T.
POCO is Xiaomi’s new smartphone sub-brand that aims to deliver fast flagship performance at a lower price point. The official launch event is taking place in India very soon but if you can’t wait, there’s already an unboxing video which gives us a clear look at the new “flagship killer.”
A few years ago, OnePlus used to be the “flagship killer” but now that title seems to go to Xiaomi for its super affordable flagship offering. The Mi MIX 2S that offers a “bezel-less” screen with a Snapdragon 845 processor is priced under RM2,000 and their latest Mi 8 is going for as low as RM1,599, which is insanely good value for money.
If the Mi 8 is still too expensive, Xiaomi has just introduced a new sub-brand and their new device could be the most affordable Snapdragon 845 smartphone ever.
If you’re looking for a OnePlus 6 in a lighter shade of colour, the Silk White version is now in stock in Malaysia. This variant gets a matte back with pearl coating while the frame comes in a subtle gold finish.
The OnePlus 6 has finally landed in Malaysia and you can buy this flagship smartphone starting today. These are official units that are distributed by Mi Han Sdn Bhd, the new sole distributor for OnePlus devices in Malaysia.
You can buy a OnePlus 6 in Malaysia in the next couple of days. If you prefer to get one with the official local warranty, here’s some good news. It’s coming to Malaysia in the first week of June and you can pre-order right now.
