This is why new OnePlus 6T battery capacity leak is legit

OnePlus 6T leaks are coming thick and fast. From press invites to promo video screenshots (confirming wireless charging) to high quality renders, we have seen all in a span of just few days.

And the leak storm isn’t over yet. We have now spotted a new image on Weibo which seemingly shows a OnePlus phone battery packaging. Following is the image in question.

As you can see, the details in the image reveal a battery capacity of 3,700mAh. Now, the user who shared this image on Weibo said the battery in question is for the OnePlus 6T. But there’s no direct proof to supplement this claim.

However, there is definitely some evidence that supports this claim. Let’s discuss the points one by one.

To begin with, OnePlus has already confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will come with an improved battery size compared to the OnePlus 6.

Now, given that the OnePlus 6 packs in a 3,300mAh battery, it’s very well possible that the 3,700mAh battery shown here is for the OnePlus 6T. Moving on, the battery model is BLP685.

If you compare, it’s not only in the same BLP6xx series that previous generation OnePlus smartphone batteries have followed, but is also the most advanced model number in that series.

And finally, the date stamped on the package – 2018/08/27 – suggests it’s recently manufactured. If you take all this evidence into consideration, it’s reasonable to say the OnePlus 6T will come with a 3,700mAh battery.

What we know so far

To round up, the OnePlus 6T is confirmed to ditch the standard 3.5mm headphone jack, come with under screen fingerprint sensor, as well as a comparatively large battery.

Rumors so far have revealed other details like Snapdragon 845 SoC, up to 8GB/256GB memory config, 12MP+20MP dual rear camera, a 6.4-inch screen, and support for wireless charging.

The flagship is set to be officially unveiled on October 17 next month.
