OnePlus has a pedigree in delivering premium features at a lower price point than most flagships. While the OnePlus 6 already filled that niche nicely, albeit at a slightly higher price than most were expecting for a OnePlus device, the OnePlus 6T takes that design and runs with it, adding improved battery capacity, a refined design and a new in-display fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus has brand recognition among smartphone fans, but largely within the realm of offering really affordable flagship phones. The OnePlus 6 saw it shift that focus slightly upwards and it's much the same story with the OnePlus 6T, which will sell in the US for US$549 (128GB ROM/6GB RAM), US$579 (128GB/8GB) and US$629 (256GB/8GB) respectively.
That should equate out to (very roughly) around $780, $820 and $890 respectively, but that doesn't take GST into account, or the fact that OnePlus has only ever soft-launched a single phone in Australia. That was the OnePlus 5 and since then we've seen no official OnePlus handsets in Australia.
That does mean if you want a OnePlus 6T, you'll have to pay a direct importer to get one, which will add a little more again to the likely cost. We'd expect to see the OnePlus 6T start in Australia at around $850–$900 for the entry level model and go upwards from there.Back to top
