The OnePlus 6T is set to launch globally and in India on October 30. The Chinese smartphone maker has scheduled a launch event in New Delhi on October 30 to launch the new smartphone. The OnePlus 6T becomes the successor to the OnePlus 6 launched earlier in the year and will likely feature only minimal changes like an in-display fingerprint sensor and a water drop like display notch on the front panel.
Now, some OnePlus executives have confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will feature a ‘Whole New UI’ along with an ‘Advanced Do not Disturb Mode’. The company has also confirmed that it is bringing some software upgrades on the upcoming OnePlus 6T as well.
“Our focus is always on providing a fast and smooth experience,” “We’ve got this specialised ‘FSE’ team, where ‘FSE’ stands for ‘Fast, Smooth, and Efficient’. Their goal is to make the most out of our hardware. You can expect to see a couple of features that make the user experience smoother, like an advanced, Do Not Disturb mode and new Navigation Gestures.” OnePlus said in a forum post attributing quotes to Szymon Kopec, Product Manager, OnePlus and User Experience Lead Crayon Hsieh.
As the official launch date of the OnePlus 6T is getting closer, the company finally has started to shed information about the new features of the handset. “We’ve got a whole new UI coming up that you will have to experience for yourself to really understand. Our goal was to express the OnePlus design language in our UI, making this the most distinct and intuitive version of OxygenOS yet. We’ve also put a lot of work into improving the camera behind the scenes, so you can expect to take even better pictures,” the post further added.
