The Google Pixel 3 XL and OnePlus 6T are two of the best phones coming this fall, and that means potential buyers have a tough choice to make. With Pixel 3 pre-orders now available, here’s how it compares to the OnePlus 6T so you have enough information to make the right choice.
If you’re hunting for your next smartphone the Pixel 3 XL is a top contender. However, recent leaks suggest the OnePlus 6T could give all the top players a run for their money in 2018, including Google.
The OnePlus 6T could potentially deliver a phone with high-end specs and a design many didn’t expect to see until 2019. Basically, Google has some strong competition this year. Here we’ll go over the specs, screen sizes, cameras, release date details and pricing for those interested.
There are plenty of excellent Android smartphones available right now. If you can’t wait, choose from devices like the Galaxy Note 9, OnePlus 6 or even the LG G7 ThinQ. However, they’re not your only options. Multiple high-end phones are still coming before the end of 2018.
We’re talking about the Google Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL. Not to mention the LG V40, OnePlus 6T, and others.
For those in the United States and that prefer stock Android, the Pixel 3 XL and OnePlus 6T will be the two best options. For the first time, we’re hearing the OnePlus 6T will be available from a carrier, T-Mobile. Then, Google’s Pixel 3 XL has wireless charging and a bigger screen this year.
There’s plenty to like about both, but also major differences that will completely set the two apart. We’re mainly talking about the huge notch in the Pixel 3 XL screen. Or that the OnePlus will likely have an average camera again.
In the meantime, here’s what we know, how they compare, and what to expect in October and November as they both arrive.
Pixel 3 XL vs OnePlus 6T: Display
When it comes to buying a smartphone, the screen size is one of the most important factors. And these days, it's the screen size AND shape. Mainly because the notch is a popular trend.
And while nothing is official for the OnePlus 6T, we have a very good idea of what to expect. Mainly because they both leaked a lot, and Google announced its phone this week.
The Pixel 3 XL comes with a 6.3-inch Quad-HD display with a bezel-free design. That screen will have a deep large notch similar to the iPhone X. For what it's worth, the smaller regular Pixel 3 is 5.5-inches without the notch. Basically, the 3 XL will have a big beautiful screen if you can get over that notch. Early reports say the screen is better than the Note 9.
Originally we expected the OnePlus 6T to have the same fate, but recent leaks suggest it'll have a TINY notch. Smaller than any other phone. Something we're calling a water-drop notch. Essentially the notch is as small as technically possible to only house the front-facing camera. Sensors, microphones, and the speaker will be in the metal grill above the screen. The OnePlus 6T comes in at around 6.4-inches Here are brand new photos and videos of the phone.
Either way, these phones will both have similar screen sizes, AMOLED displays, and a notch. The OnePlus 6T is a little bigger, with a smaller notch and only a 1080p HD screen.
