OnePlus 6T vs Galaxy S9+: What You Need to Know is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

When it comes to choosing your next smartphone there are plenty of choices in 2018. And with the upcoming OnePlus 6T your decision will be even more difficult. Here, we’ll talk about the OnePlus 6T, share everything we know, then compare it to Galaxy S9+ for potential buyers.

If you’re hunting for your next phone the Galaxy S9+ or Pixel 3 are likely near the top of your list. They’re also really expensive. That’s why the OnePlus 6T is such an exciting alternative.

Multiple leaks suggest the OnePlus 6T will come with specs and a design many didn’t expect until 2019. Instantly giving the Galaxy S9 or even the iPhone Xs a run for its money. Here we’ll go over the rumored specs, screen sizes, cameras, and a potential October release date for those interested.

A big part of your buying decision will be what you need and how much you can afford. That’s also what makes OnePlus phones popular. They’re typically a no-compromises smartphone with all the bells and whistles for less money than the competition. You’ll have to decide if some of the extra Galaxy S9+ features are worth the extra cash.

The Galaxy S9+ went on sale back in March, so most buyers have a good idea of what to expect already. Not to mention it’s nearly identical to the Galaxy S8+ from last year. And while the OnePlus 6 was released earlier this year, the OnePlus 6T will have some important changes you need to know about. Seriously.

Both of these phones will have huge screens, tons of power, plenty of storage, and more than one camera on the back. Not only will the OnePlus 6T match devices like the S9+ or Galaxy Note 9 across the board, it beats them in some key areas. There are pros and cons to each, and you’ll have to decide which ones are more important to you.

OnePlus 6T vs Galaxy S9+: Display

Obviously, one of the first things we gotta talk about is the big screen on these two phones. And, how the screens are different.

The Galaxy S9+ has a curved 6.2-inch Quad-HD display with rounded edges. It's big, beautiful, and looks great. There's no notch, but bezels at the top and the bottom. As for the OnePlus 6T, recent leaks suggest it'll come in at 6.28 or bigger, and have an edge-to-edge display aside from a TINY notch. Far smaller than any other phone on the market, and way smaller than the iPhone X or Xs notch. A "water-drop notch" if you will.

Essentially, the notch is as small as physically possible and the only thing in the notch is the front-facing camera. Everything else is above the screen inside a chamfered and angles metal edge.

 Of course, the AMOLED Infinity display on the Galaxy S9+ will be the better of the two, as they make the best screens. However, the OnePlus 6T will still be more than capable, nearly the same size or bigger, and have smaller bezels. It's the future.
