Leaked retail box shows a smaller notch, in-display fingerprint sensor for the OnePlus 6T

For the past couple of years, OnePlus has released two flagships per year, and 2018 isn't expected to be any different. We've already heard some rumors regarding a refresh of the OnePlus 6, but now we're getting the first glimpse of what the phone could end up looking like.

Recently leaked images showcase what appears to be the OnePlus 6T's retail box, and while we don't get to see the phone itself, the inside of the packaging seems to give away some information. Specifically, it appears that the phone has a significantly smaller notch than the OnePlus 6 launched earlier this year. If the depiction is accurate, it's most similar to the Oppo R17 we saw back in July. This isn't much of a surprise, seeing as Oppo is the parent company of OnePlus.

Additionally, the drawing includes a fingerprint pattern on the lower half of the screen, suggesting that the phone will ship with an in-display fingerprint sensor, something we're yet to see in a lot of mainstream devices. Still present is the noticeably larger chin when compared to the other bezels around the display.

It's important to note, as always, that these images are not official and may not be accurate. Nonetheless, if they are, these will probably be the biggest changes with the OnePlus 6T, as the company doesn't typically introduce major spec changes in these cases. With that being said, the new design alone could be a big selling point, especially for those who aren't sold on notched displays.
