Besides it being rumored that OnePlus has finally managed to get a United States carrier, believed to be T-Mobile in this instance, to sell the OnePlus 6T on its store shelves, the handset will also be sold exclusively via Amazon.in (India), as evidenced by this product teaser shown on the e-tailer's website.

In the ad, Indian celebrity Amitabh Bachchan says, "What if I told you there was a cooler way to unlock your phone?"

We learned quite a few details about the OnePlus 6T over the past few days, including the fact that the phone will sport an in-display fingerprint sensor, that it'll lack a headphone jack, and that it'll be available from T-Mobile, the first carrier in the U.S. to ever partner with the Chinese smartphone maker.

OnePlus said in an email to CNET that the in-display fingerprint sensor on OnePlus 6T will be called "Screen Unlock", though the company admitted adding this has made the new device "thicker" by 0.45mm. The teaser page for OnePlus 6T also shows the recently announced OnePlus Type-C Bullets earphones.

OnePlus 6T along with Type-C Bullets headphones have been listed on Amazon India. The OnePlus 6T, is therefore, expected to cram a larger battery with some reports suggesting that even wireless charging could be a new feature of the OnePlus 6T. An upgrade to the Bullets V2, the new Type-C Bullets will sport a metal design and aramid fibre, making it more durable and resistant to stretching. Case maker ZGARhas also released covers for the upcoming smartphone which shows slots for two cameras. The case listing on AliExpress hints that the new smartphone will be skipping the anticipated depth sensor, which would have been the third camera. The overall design will be similar to that of OnePlus 6. The wavy pattern on the right of the image, of course, alludes to the in-display fingerprint sensor - a feature that has previously been confirmed by OnePlus. It's believed that the OnePlus 6T will feature a 6.41-inch OLED display with 2340 x 1080 resolution and 19:5:9 aspect ratio, although this information has been gleaned from the Vivo V11 Pro and Oppo's R17, both of which are part of the same stable.

The smartphone is also rumoured to sport a triple-camera setup at the rear.
