OnePlus 6T packaging leak hints at small notch, in-display fingerprint reader

A report from last month claimed that the OnePlus 6T could launch at T-Mobile later this year. At the time, we didn’t know much about the OP6T, but today a couple of details may have leaked out.

Photos that allegedly show the retail box for the OnePlus 6T have leaked, and they hint at some of the upcoming phone’s features. On the inside of the packaging, we can see an outline of the front of the phone, and it shows the notch has been shrunk from the OnePlus 6. Now the notch is just a bit larger than the front-facing camera that it houses.

The packaging also suggests that the OnePlus 6T could have an in-display fingerprint reader. Near the bottom of the display, you can see a fingerprint with the phrase “Unlock The Speed” below it.

It’s rumored that the OnePlus 6T will launch in October, so we’ll have to wait until then before we get official details on the upcoming device. It’s possible that the OnePlus 6T could feature the design shown in this leak, though. The small drop-like notch and in-display fingerprint reader are both features of the Oppo R17, which was made official last month. We’ve seen OnePlus borrow designs from Oppo smartphones for some of its previous handsets — it’s reported that they’re both subsidiaries of Chinese company BBK Electronics — and we could see it happen again with the OnePlus 6T.

Would you be interested in the OnePlus 6T if it looked like this leak suggests?

  • lomsha

    Yeah just might get it if all that is true.

    Looks fake with ruler and waste paper in the upper left corner.

    • steadymobb

      Why does that make it look fake???

      • Don B.

        Maybe I just have an eye for it or I might be talking out of my butt. But look at the corners and how the folds are, not very clean.

          OnePlus has always followed the Oppo design language…it was leaked a month or 2 ago that the OnePlus would most likely look like this. I am 99% sure it will

        • Paul G12K

    Yep, interested indeed.

  • mreveryphone

    Definitely in for this!

  • PC_Tool

    Hoping it shows up on T-Mobile US. It will be very interesting then, regardless of whether the leak here is true. Definitely keeping my eyes on it.

    I like it. Not too thrilled about the notch, but at least it’s small.

    I had a problem with the notch when Essential did it. Then I remembered that I didn’t have a problem when LG made the V10 and V20 which were technically notched displays as they too moved info higher up to free up valuable screen real-estate. Now I’m fine with it, as long as it isn’t GIANT and intrusive.

    If it shows on TMO with this design and reasonable price I am all in!! Still hoping for wireless charging though.

    Wish i could pre-order it already
