Happy 2nd Birthday to the Global OnePlus 6T!


Yes, today, the 6th November, marks 2 years since the worldwide release of the global OnePlus 6T back in 2018.

With its 6.41" screen, 6/8GB of memory, 128/256GB storage and a 20MP camera the global OnePlus 6T offered better spec's than most phones on the market at that time and can hold its own even today against a lot of devices out there.

The global OnePlus 6T now enters its 3rd year of support from OnePlus and as per their schedule, this will be approximately bi-monthly, (every 2 months), Android Security updates for the next year.

Also, OnePlus has stated that both the global OnePlus 6 & 6T will receive an update to Android 11 in future. No official time scale has been given for when the platform update will happen but if OnePlus follow the 5 series schedule we should see Open Beta test releases for the 6 series probably in Q2, (April-June), of 2021 with a stable OxygenOS release, barring hiccups, around mid to late Q2.

On a personal note I must say that for me, the OnePlus 6T running on a fast 2G/3G/LTE network in the U.K. with 99% coverage and fast fibre optic Wi-Fi broadband and without any extra country or carrier bloatware, has been and still is, a trusty and reliable phone and well worth the money.

Well done OnePlus and Happy 2nd Birthday to the global 6T.
