Starting with the OnePlus 6T Amazon India landing page, the listing only shows the upcoming handset’s name with the ‘Coming Soon’ tag, and says it will be an Amazon exclusive. There’s also the ‘Notify Me’ button that allows users to sign up to receive notifications regarding the smartphone on their linked email ID.

The name was also confirmed in the OnePlus 6T TV ad that was aired during the ongoing cricket match between India and Pakistan. Brand ambassador Amitabh Bachchan in the advertisement also alludes to the in-display fingerprint sensor, calling it “a cooler way to unlock your phone.” He also says, “The new OnePlus 6T is coming.” Two slogans also appeared in the advertisement, 'Touch for innovation' and 'Ready for speed' - both reiterating the faster unlocking with the in-display fingerprint sensor of the smartphone.

Lastly, a report by reputed tipster Roland Quandt of WinFuture claims that OnePlus is sticking to a dual camera setup for its second flagship of the year. This contradicts the previous reports that said OnePlus 6T will feature a triple camera setup on the back. A render image shared in the story shows the smartphone in Mirror Black finish. Also, compared to the current flagship, the OnePlus 6T will not have a fingerprint sensor on the back. It is also claimed the internals will be rearranged with the new model, with the noise-cancelling microphone moved from the right edge to the left and the Power button is also being moved downwards. The report also says that the new smartphone will be a little bigger in size compared to the current model and may feature a 6.41-inch display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2340x1080-pixel resolution.
